The weather may not be at its best right now, but mid-January is actually the perfect time to start planning your dream deck. Why? Because it will soon be springtime, and that's when you'll want to come out from under your duvet and spend some quality outdoor time with your friends.
And what better place to hang out than on a gorgeous TimberTech deck in your back garden? If you want your dream deck to be completed by the time the sun comes out, it's best to start planning it now. The first thing to do is take a look at your garden's current state and think about where your TimberTech deck could go - you could build it right up against your home as a kind of outdoor extension, or you could put it right up the other end of the garden and use it as your own personal relaxation zone. It's always nice to have a place where you can get away from the stresses of the day!
Once you've got a basic idea for your TimberTech deck, it's time to come to us! Have a browse of our website first to see what kind of decking ranges are available, and then contact TimberTech to discuss getting your project started. We'll help you through every step of your decking installation, and your beautiful springtime relaxation spot will be ready to use before you know it.
So you already know how beautiful, durable, and low-maintenance our composite decking products are, but are you aware of just how environmentally friendly decking from TimberTech is? We've always been proud of our eco-friendly practices, and yet many people are surprised to discover that not a single tree is cut down to make TimberTech composite decking.
Sound impossible? Our environmentally friendly decking is made of reclaimed wood, which means that instead of cutting down new trees to make our composite wood products, we use waste wood that would otherwise be headed directly for a landfill. This practice saves over 45,000,000kg of wood every year, not to mention all the trees that are left undisturbed.
This method is just one of the reasons why we believe our composite decking to be the most environmentally friendly decking available. We carry out all kinds of other eco-friendly measures on the road to your dream deck, and you can read all about them on our Eco-Friendly Decking page. We believe that sustaining the environment is just as important as providing a fantastic product, and our environmentally friendly decking is as sustainable as decking gets.

If you want to add a beautiful finishing touch to your composite decking, why not try our Deck Lights on for size? These small LED lights can be incorporated into the decking with ease; they're barely noticeable when they're switched off, but when the sun goes down and your lights come on, the effect will be jaw-dropping.
Our deck lights are available in five different colours, including brilliant white, midnight blue, radiant red, and more. The deck lights themselves are water-resistant and safe to walk on - the LED bulbs don't even generate any heat, so you can step on them barefoot without getting burned!
Colourful deck lights are a fantastic way to add an extra bit of atmosphere to your deck, and there are many different ways to use them; whether you're defining a path or shedding some light on your garden's gorgeous centrepiece, you can do anything with deck lights.
Hardwood decking has plenty of advantages. High-quality, genuine hardwood looks and feels fabulous, and the authentic feel is more than worth the cost.
But hardwood decking can also be a bit of a hassle. Installation can be fiddly, especially if you want your decking to look good, and real wood requires rather a lot of maintenance and care. And then of course come the issues of rot, decay, splintering, and general fading over time. Your tropically-coloured hardwood decking may look great when you buy it, but how long will it stay that way?
That’s why we’re so passionate about composite decking. Installation is a breeze – you won’t require any specialist tools, and the Concealoc system gives you a flawless finish without any difficulty. Better yet, once your composite decking is down, you only need to sweep it and give it a light power wash now and again to keep it spectacular. Stripping and oiling don’t enter into it!
Composite decking is also more durable, resisting rot and decay for decades. For more information on why we believe that composite decking is so much better than hardwood decking, head over to our hardwood decking page.
