Decking is More Versatile than You Realise

18/01/2019

When it comes to garden decking, far too many people picture boring, plain decking, and fail to imagine all the different uses and potential inherent to a quality garden deck.

From thoroughly decorated decks to functions and events, to simply being able to use some part of your garden all year round, decks are much more powerful than we generally give them credit for.

Yours can be designed, installed and finished in no time at all, here’s all the ways your potential decking is more versatile than you realise.

Decorate It

When people picture decking, nine times out of ten, they’re imagining plain, boring pine decks. Sure, they can have a simple, understated elegance, but there’s so much more you can do with a deck.

From garden ornaments to all kinds of beautiful shades of paint, you can absolutely make a deck totally yours. Imagine a pastel shade deck, complete with great outdoor furniture, with some tasteful ornaments, and some pretty fairy lights. How good does that sound?

Functions and Events

Obviously one of the biggest and best features of a deck is all the functions and events you can use it for. From garden parties to barbeques, to whatever, a deck can be a perfect staging area when you’re having people over.

This can be much better than simply milling around on the grass, getting muddy, or on a bleak concrete area. Decking is simply better!

Accessibility and Safety

If you’ve got a property with steep or awkward steps, and have very young or elderly family, you’ll know about all the risks, dangers and fuss inherent to that situation. That goes two-fold when it comes to disabilities and similar problems.

Decks can be an effective, attractive and safe alternative to more expensive changes to your property. By allowing you easy access via ramp, safer steps or whatever, you can stop worrying about your young, elderly or disabled visitors.

Fix the Garden

One of the best things about decks is that you can put over all kinds of troublesome areas in the garden. You can cover up ugly spots, or simply fill awkward areas that weren’t otherwise being used. They can be a powerful tool when it comes to properly optimising and making use of a garden.

This is thanks to the fact that they can be built over basically any ground, with minimal fuss or technical difficulty.

All Year Round

When people think about anything to do with decking and gardens in general, for most of the UK, those are predominantly summer thoughts. That doesn’t need to be the case though!

With the right set up on your deck, you can be enjoying it through the autumn and spring, and if you’re brave enough, the winter too! All you need is the right shelters, outdoor heaters and comfy outdoor furniture, a deck doesn’t have to just be for summer.
