Decking an ideal solution for your outdoor entertaining?

When it comes to entertaining outdoors, decking can be a perfect solution. Especially if you have areas of muddy or uneven ground, decking can raise your outdoor entertaining areas above the muddy ground, in-turn giving you a level area for your outdoor furniture. It is also idea for walking onto straight from patio or french doors, maintaining your indoor floor level outside.

Having a decking area in your garden can make a big difference to the overall look. It gives you a great area for dining, entertaining friends or relaxing in.



Types of Decking

There are a few different types on the market, here will look at a few of the main ones.

Softwood vs Hardwood

Softwood is great if you are looking for a low cost classic style. However, the hardwood is much more hard wearing and weather resistant, offering a lot less maintenance.

Heat Treated Boards

The heat treated boards offer the softwood boards a more tougher and water resistant finish. In turn the lifespan is a lot longer with these types of boards.

Composite Boards

The composite boards are created using recycled timber and PVC. Offering the attractive look of wood combined with the low maintenance aspect and durability of plastic.


Decking tiles are a solution which is an alternative to the boards. These are generally used for more ground level projects such as patio areas or pathways.

Those Finishing Touches

So you have chosen your type of decking, by adding posts and a balustrade it can help give your decking those finishing touches whist making it safer at the same time.
