Decking has become increasingly popular, and when you stop and think about it, it’s not surprising in the least. Decking boards add a new dimension to your garden and the organic material used blends the whole design into your existing garden, without appearing fake or engineered. As timber merchants, here at Davies Timber Ltd we often sell our decking boards to homeowners looking to add life and vigour into their gardens with a new decking area. Decking is great come rain or sunshine, and the best bit is, you can do it yourself.

Decking doesn’t need to be overtly expensive, especially with our help. It really can change how you use your garden, and as such it is paramount that you design a decking area which will reflect how you intend to use the area. With not only timber decking, composite decking such as Millboard and Trex decking you can create an appealing statement area in your garden, that will last for years to come.

Step One: Decide what the area will be used for.

The best tip we can offer those looking to build a decking area, is to first think about how they are intending to use the area. This will affect your overall design and make it fit your requirements with ease.

Step Two: Choose a shape.

The shape determines how you will use the area and how it relates to the rest of your garden. Circular shapes offer a softer shape, while octagonal or rectangular shapes offer more functionality and co-ordinate with the property’s exterior.

Step Three: One platform or two?

If you have a large garden then you have the option to have a decked area which has more than one platform. This is particularly good for gardens which slope or are uneven. The platforms account for the slope and gradually take the user down the garden without the need for lots of steps.

If you want to improve how your garden looks and how you use it, then decking boards are for you. As timber merchants, we at Davies Timber Ltd supply a wide range of timber decking boards, composite decking boards, Trex Decking and Millboard decking all at competitive rates.
