Delightful Decking

The nights are getting lighter and the days are lasting longer. It’s the time of year we find ourselves wanting to embrace the outdoors as much as possible. After all, it's only a matter of time until the British weather makes its next appearance!

Whilst we love summer days out and going to new places, there’s something we love about being able to stay at home. A lot of the time, we are left with a neglected garden that hasn’t had much love since we last had the paddling pool out.

Summer is all about spending time with family and friends. Made more enjoyable by being able to do all this at home, in a familiar and relaxing environment. We appreciate the motivation to keep a garden looking pristine over the winter is hard. Now summer has arrived you may want to think about updating your outdoor space while taking away some of the stress of garden upkeep. What better way to give your garden a swift summer update than to deck it out… literally!

Our range of garden decking is made from the highest quality wood. It comes pressure treated, making it ready to use. If you're thinking of decking out the garden this summer, We’ve chosen a few of our favourite summer decking looks. Here's a little inspiration for your very own summer sanctuary:

Beach Dreams

If you’re craving the sun and haven’t booked a holiday yet, the beach is only a decking board away. Create a summery, rustic beach vibe in your very own back garden with purposefully worn decking boards to give off a sandy beach vibe. If you have children, use actual sand to create a beach-themed play area, buckets and spades at the ready!

Only safe for the summer months, adorn your outdoor seating area with cushions and throws. Make for a cosy outdoor entertainment area that your guests will never want to leave. Just make sure you wrap up warm at night!

Fresh Cut

For a clean cut, fresh and new look for a summer garden, opt for clearly designed paving and decking areas. This will create a modern outdoor space that is not only great to look at, but also great to relax in. Complement a grassy garden area with neat flowerbeds and sharply designed decking area. Your garden will look like a million dollars. The perfect place to host a summer get-together.

Vintage Charm

We love contemporary gardens with minimalistic design. But it’s always nice to inject a little history and tradition into your home, whether that be the interior or exterior. Choose reclaimed decking materials to add some character to your outdoor area. Allow plants to overgrow in areas to create a vintage ‘secret garden’ atmosphere. Enjoy the luxury of traditional vintage charm that the whole family will be in awe of.
