Decking

Decking has been brought to the forefront of gardening technology by some very well known television programmes but even though it has become a common addition to many gardens.

Wood is a warm addition to any garden be it live trees, decking, half-round timber, lattice panel screens or as a retaining wall for a raised bed.

As you can see in our Job Profiles section, decking can be used in a variety of ways. At low level on flat ground it's an alternative to a paved or brick patio and in sloping gardens it can be used to create a levelled seating area with or without balustrade. When constructed at a high level it can create useful storage space beneath and with the advent of special deck lighting combined with outdoor heaters a deck can be put to good use for most of the year.
