Composite decking is one of the fastest growing home improvement products in the UK because it’s so versatile. Here we look at some of the ways you can use it in your garden.
Garden decking has always been a popular garden improvement.
Decking is frequently used as an alternative to patios.
Low maintenance composite decking has a natural and realistic look using a softer and warmer design compared to paved garden spaces, helping to bring your garden to life.
When considering creating your own unique space you need to create a plan and work out what you want from your new decking. Whether it’s a space for family, entertaining guests or lounging in the sun, consider a design that best suits your garden size to maximise the space and take advantage of your garden’s characteristics.
Composite wood decking can be used to create a wonderful outdoor living space that can be personalised to your taste. It’s pretty much maintenance free so can be used in any area of the garden, even if it’s in a shaded area that is often damp. Take a look at some of our ideas for using composite deck in your garden.
Ground Level Decking
Ground level composite decking is one of the simplest decking designs which can be easy to build and install; as it comes in 4 natural woodgrain colours we can create a design that suits you.
This is also ideal for homes looking for an alternative to a patio and can be used to create an interesting feature in terraced and suburban homes.
Ground level decking can be used to create a small yet natural looking multi-purpose space and if you use Composite Wood decking it is guaranteed to withstand the elements as well as being splinter and slip proof, making it an ideal, and more durable alternative to timber decking.
If you’re looking to create a more eye catching and versatile space in your garden, raised composite decking could be perfect for you.
Raised decking designs are ideal if you have a sloped or a split-level garden. They create a level space to give you fantastic views of your garden and the surrounding area.
If you want a raised decking area you will also want to think about steps and balustrades to keep you safe.
Depending on the size you are going for you may also need to get planning permission. Raised decking can add to the beauty of your outside area by creating different areas which serve their own purpose; for example, to entertain.
Multi Level Decking
If you have a large, tiered garden and want to create a ‘wow-factor’ you can transform your garden with a multi-level decking space.
Ideal for larger garden projects you can create interesting and unique spaces in your garden. You could have a separate space for comfortable seating, outdoor dining and the BBQ!
If you are opting for this type of design you can mould these spaces to suit your garden.
Your primary entertainment spot could have some of the best views of your garden and have a place to keep your BBQ out of the wind. Multi-level decking provides you with the perfect place to host, entertain and relax.
Hot Tub Decking
If you have your own hot tub or pool you need a space around it that provides easy access to and from your home (especially on cold evenings!).
Traditional timber decking is prone to becoming slippery when wet which can make it a potentially risky option for decking around a jacuzzi. Composite decking, on the other hand, is ideal for use around pool areas and hot tubs as it is slip resistant and splinter-free.
Composite decking is waterproof and has protection from mould so its guaranteed to last longer.
We can create a design around your hot tub or pool to incorporate it with the rest of your garden seamlessly, whether you want steps installed or a built in design with raised decking fitted around your hot tub, we can work with you to make your garden stylish, so you can relax.
Contrast the area around your hot tub or swimming pool with the rest of your composite decking, or match it perfectly with the same design and colour. If you decide to have steps installed so that you can get out of your hot tub easily, why not include balustrades and railings – our slip and splinter proof so you stay safe when they get wet, and the mould and algae resistant materials will ensure that your decking stays looking new.
Create An Entertainment Space
Your garden is an ideal place to entertain guests, especially during the summer months. A beautiful deck creates an area where you can do just that.
The added strength of our composite decking makes it ideal for creating spaces for barbecues and entertaining guests. Combined with well-placed lighting, outdoor heating and of course a top of the range BBQ, you have a space to party and entertain all night long.
It is easy to create different spaces in your garden with raised decking, balustrades and railings. Why not include an area for dining or socialising, a barbecue area, a kids space or an area to relax and unwind in your design. The possibilities are endless, and you can rest easy knowing that your deck is splinter proof, mould and algae resistant, slip proof and extremely strong, with no need to stain seal.
Include Additional Features In Your Decking
To make your new composite decking area extra special you can add additional features like LED lighting which is ideal for both safety and style.
Lighting can add a unique feature to your decking and make all the difference when entertaining guests or relaxing in the evening.
To turn your new composite decking into a year-round space you could add overhanging heat lamps for your outdoor seating. Outdoor heating and lighting is perfect for those who want to use their garden throughout the year.
You can also build in practical features such as storage in your decking to hide away some of your garden tools and keep your garden looking clean and uncluttered.
There is a huge range of options when using composite decking in your garden. Whether it’s decking to go around your pool or a new space to relax in, you can use Composite Wood decking as a long lasting, durable and natural looking improvement to your garden.
