As the first day of spring has officially been and gone, we are now firmly in the grasp of the best time of the year – sunshine, BBQs and summer clothing. Indeed, spring and summer are the few months of the year where Britain heats up (if we’re lucky) and the whole of the UK seems to be in a jolly good mood…for the most part. As we previously reported, summer 2014 is set to be the hottest on record for Britain, so we’ll be collectively piling outdoors to bask in the rays. As gorgeous weather is somewhat a novelty around these parts, perhaps your garden isn’t quite in tip top condition and are looking to make the most of it for the impending heat-wave. The solution? Composite decking, of course!
Hot, hot, hot!
The main benefit of our gorgeous composite decking is that it is an aesthetically pleasing, practically maintenance-free decking which will simply transform your outdoor space. Our decks can be used for lounging on, playing on, BBQ-ing on, chatting on – and they’re simply perfect for drinking copious amounts of Pimms on! If you install TimberTech’s decking in your garden for this Summer then we can guarantee you’ll be utilising your outdoor space like never before – and enjoying it!
But what if it rains?
Us Brits will always be slightly sceptical when they tell us to expect glorious sunshine – we’re just too used to that damn rain! However, rain is no match for our composite decking, and the moisture-resistant nature of the material means that from a drop of rain to a monsoon, your deck will remain beautiful, slip-resistant and generally as good as new.
Accessorising your TimberTech Deck
If you want to go all out this Summer then make sure to have a look at the other range of TimberTech products on offer! Starting with a gorgeous Glass Balustrade System to finish your decking in style.
It's been a long, nasty winter, but don't worry - it's almost over! Tomorrow (the 20th of March) is the vernal equinox, otherwise known as the first day of spring, which means that things are going to be considerably brighter from now on. We can finally start looking forward to longer, warmer days, and thinking about what we're going to do with them.
If you haven't already decided how you're going to spend your springtime, we at TimberTech have a few suggestions:
- Invite your friends over for a barbecue. BBQ season starts whenever the sun is out - if you find yourself with an unexpectedly sunny Saturday afternoon on your hands, you simply need to call your friends, pop to the shops, and fire up the barbecue. Eating outdoors is always a great idea, weather permitting; you can even use the oven in the kitchen if you feel like cheating!
- Work on your green thumb! It's never to late to become an amateur botanist and start planting flowers. The odd bloom here and there can brighten up even the smallest and plainest of gardens, and it's a very rewarding process - nurturing your plants from mere seedlings and watching them grow into beautiful, blooming beauties.
- Go for a walk. Your local parks will be lovely enough at this time of year, but if you want something a little more engaging, why not check out the National Trust website and see which of their sites are near you? You might discover a real treasure, right on your doorstep!
- Renovate the garden. If you want to get the most from your own outdoor space this year, now is the time to start your preparations. You may just need to mow the lawn or tidy up the patio a little bit, but you could go further - make use of our composite decking range, add a stunning decked area to your garden, and take the whole space to another level entirely! It's a sure-fire way to enjoy Spring/Summer 2014 to the full.
We're in the middle of February and finally, the days of complete darkness are coming to an end. We're getting a little sunshine in amongst the horrendous flooding and storms, and collectively, us British are looking forward to Spring and Summer. Warm weather, BBQs and sitting in the garden - absolutely blissful! Though it might be hard to believe given the awfully unfortunate weather we've been enduring lately across Great Britain in the wettest winter in 100 years, scientists have announced that there's a 75% chance that summer 2014 will be the hottest summer on record.
That's right folks, it looks like us Brits are in for a heatwave - we personally think we deserve it after the awful weather we've been seeing lately, don't you? This means it's time to jazz up your gardens and get your outdoor spaces in tip-top condition so you can enjoy the gorgeous weather in style.
Our range of composite decking comes in some gorgeous neutral colours and will provide you with a stylish and remarkably low-maintenance deck for you to enjoy the warmest weather on record - you can BBQ, relax and lounge to your heart's content on one of our gorgeous Vertigrain Decks!
If you like a little bling in your life and plan on entertaining this summer, why not jazz up your gorgeous deck with our stunning Decking Lights? These cutting-edge LED lights can transform your decking - giving you an outdoor space to be truly proud of.
Cast away your plans for a holiday this year and spend your pennies on creating a beautiful haven for you and your family to enjoy for years to come. If we've got the hottest summer on record heading our way why go abroad when you can sit in your gorgeous garden and enjoy the heatwave here? Add an Ornamental Handrail for the finishing touch and a garden worthy of any interior design magazine!
