Decking styles

When it comes to styles and materials, you are spoilt for choice. There’s a huge range of stunning timber styles available such as hardwoods, plus environmentally friendly composite decking options, which need less maintenance. There’s also a wide choice of fasteners available from visible galvanised and stainless steel screws to those that are completely hidden. And when it comes to decking designs, you can go for a traditional diagonal pattern or a more complex geometric style.

All the trimmings

There are also plenty of ways to enhance your deck. If you like to get friends over or just want to dine outdoors, set up some outdoor furniture and bring in a BBQ to create an outdoor kitchen. You can keep everyone warm during the colder months with some outdoor heating. And there are plenty of outdoor lighting options to help set the mood.

Benches, planters, screens and overhead shade structures all add to a deck's appeal and functionality. Screens make great borders and will add some privacy. There are also plenty of options to protect you from the elements like shades and umbrellas. You can also add some colour with plants or flowers and create a peaceful haven to get away from it all.
