Garden decking is a wonderful way in which to extend the living space in your property and if done correctly can become a stylish social space perfect for entertaining guests or having dinner with your family on a warm summer’s evening. A garden deck can also be a peaceful place to sit and enjoy the outdoor life or sunbath in peace on your favourite wooden garden furniture.
As garden decks are so versatile that provide excellent means to create additional space, especially on uneven or sloping ground, creating a perfect landscaping feature. With the use of stilts underneath your deck, split levels can be made into continuous flat areas or you can change levels as you wish with steps if you’re looking for more stylish feature stop
Garden decking designs come in unlimited numbers and they are extremely versatile. If you want garden decking in your garden or space around your house you can have one because of their flexible nature they can be erected anywhere. If you are stuck for decking ideas then there is a multitude of things that are available from privacy screens that keep the neighbours prying eyes out to pergolas for protection from the elements or balustrades for safety and stylish design.
Garden decks also have the ability to work with any other kind of feature that your garden possesses such a beautiful garden water feature with a stylish decking surround or maybe a path leading up to a rock garden or planting area. Whatever your garden layout is or indeed will be once you’ve finished, then a garden deck can fit into the plan perfectly.
The wood from which the garden decking is made from is variable depending on what finish, colour and purpose for use you need or require. Different woods are regularly used; hardwood such as teak and mahogany is popular whilst for the green enthusiasts amongst us recycled materials are available but standard lumber is also used as is composite materials.
If you are looking for a touch of class in your garden decking then Ipo, Teak and Iroko decking boards are all recommended:
Ipo decking is originally from South America and is a wonderful deck material whilst still being a relatively economical choice. It is usually a lovely rich dark olive colour that is suitable for different types of decking but is mostly known for its strength with it being over twice as strong as Oak.
Iroko decking is native to Africa and is known as ‘Africa’s Teak’. Again it is an extremely hardwood making it very durable and useful for any type of deck. It is originally quite a yellow colour but once ages it turns beautiful dark brown adding a touch of class to any deck or indeed garden.
Teak decking is one of those woods that evolves with time and eventually ages into a beautiful silvery grey colour. Originally found in Indonesian forests, teak is an exceptionally hardwood due to its straight grain. When first cut is the golden in colour and has wonderful dark markings make making it beautiful new or old.
