2019 has been a year of amazing decks and garden transformations for our clients, and it doesn't look like we'll be slowing down as we head into the new 'deck'ade!

If you're considering a spot of renovation in the new year, or if you're looking for some garden inspiration then look no further. We've scoured the internet and consulted our customer feedback to give you a good idea of the decking trends you can expect to see in 2020. Let's dive right in..

Creative Configurations

Whether you combine different colours, grains or board orientations, something that's not going anywhere in 2020 is creative configurations!

In modern gardens, a simple rectangular deck in a single block of colour is likely to look completely out of place (unless you love the minimalist vibe). 

So, if you're someone with a range of eclectic garden furniture, ornaments and beautiful flowerbeds, we expect you'll opt for an interesting deck design. 

Here you can see an example of a TimberTech deck that was created using two of our gorgeous brown shades and was strategically laid to create a space with character that leads the eye across the garden space. Want to create something similar in your own garden?

Cable Railings

We' expect a  rise in the number of garden spaces being given an 'industrial' makeover. Metals, bold lines and shabby-chic furniture will be popping up in gardens up and down the country, and our chunky cable railing will fit right in! 

This railing option prevents slips and falls off the edge of your decking without obstructing your view of the garden. Perfect for you sun worshipers who plan to spend plenty of time in the garden in Summer 2020!

Better yet, our cable railings are infinitely easier to upkeep than glass or wood balustrades because they're made from marine grade stainless steel and are resistant to corrosion. They won't show mucky finger marks like glass, and they won't need sanding or sealing like wooden rails. 

With 2020 set to be another busy year, low maintenance & high impact garden additions are going to become a household staple. Learn more about our cable railing here...

Rooftop Decks & Balconies

We've had the pleasure of working on a handful of rooftop projects in 2019, and we're really looking forward to taking on a few more projects like this in the new year! 

Predictions show that summer 2020 is going to be another scorcher, and in our opinion, there's no better way to spend a hot summers day than sitting on your balcony or rooftop with a cold drink and enjoying the scenery. So, why not make the most of your roof space and convert it into a TimberTech terrace!

We know what you're thinking wouldn't a rooftop deck get really hot in the sunshine? You'll be pleased to learn that TimberTech's composite decking is resistant to heat. You'll be able to lay on a soft towel and worship the sun or wander around barefoot without the risk of sticking or stinging! 

Better still, our composite decking is fade resistant so even if it's in direct sunlight it won't lose its rich colour. You'll be able to enjoy your rooftop design year-after-year! Find out more about our rooftop balconies here...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year once again and people across the UK are beginning to trim up their houses, dust off the tinsel and dig out their festive soundtracks all in the name of Christmastime!

But why stop at the front door when you’ve got a whole blank canvas outside? If you happen to own an outdoor decking area, why not bring the Christmas spirit to your outdoor living space and go all out with decking Christmas lights!

Christmas Decking Lights

If you’re thinking of illuminating your outside space with some festive cheer but are unsure where to start, fear not – help is at hand!

Here are a few easy ways you can prepare your decking area for the festive festivities!

 

Traditional Christmas Lights

A tried and tested classic for a reason, incorporating fairy lights into your outdoor decking area over the Xmas period is a great way to inject some Christmas spirit into your exterior design.

Whether you opt for the quintessentially Christmassy white bulbs or prefer to brighten things up with a splash of colour, these string lights never fail to provide your home with a touch of festive radiance and seasonal spirit.

 Icicle Lights

Another popular choice for outdoor Christmas lights, icicle lights placed in a hanging position above your deck from a suitable location can make your decking area both impressive and festive in equal measure.

Whether you hang your icicle lights from an awning, veranda or the house itself, this wonderfully wintry effect is a common sight in Britain throughout December for good reason – it looks awesome!

 

Festoon Lights

An alternative option to the traditional Christmas lights is the less common option of using festive festoon lighting. Best of all, unlike traditional Christmas lights, festoon lighting can remain in place on your deck all-year-round without warranting a second thought.

Characterised by their big bulbs and hanging formation, festoon lights are often associated with fairgrounds and 1950s America. However, they work just as well as at Christmastime and can instantly transform your decking area into your very own winter wonderland.

Much like icicle lights, festoon lights work well as overhead lighting, hung from a ceiling structure; however, they can also be used to great effect from strategically placed posts and poles.

For an extra wintry effect, opt for ice white bulbs to give your decking a North Pole glow that’s undeniably cool in every sense of the word.

Built-In Deck Lights

Outside of traditional Christmas lighting and the above festoon example, there is a third option that can brighten up your deck for the festive period and keep your exterior area looking radiantly stunning long after Christmas has passed.

LED decking lights are a fantastic addition to your deck design, providing low-level uplighting that’s also completely safe to walk on. Built-in to the deck itself, they blend in seamlessly to the existing deck surface without taking up additional space.

Gorgeously atmospheric, these lights are available in five different colours, including festive favourites red, green and white. Enquire today to find out more!

If there’s one thing the USA is known for in the outdoor living industry, it’s its penchant for top-quality decking.

At TimberTech, we’re proud to say that all our decking is imported directly from the United States, upholding the lofty standards of American decking.

“What’s so good about American decking?” we hear you ask. Let’s take a digital leap across the pond and find out.

God Bless America

According to an independent study by the Freedonia Group, decking is a $7.1 billion industry in the US, with sales in composite decking set to rise even further in the years ahead.

As a result of this healthy appetite for decking Stateside, the TimberTech name is internationally-recognised as a leading brand in the industry.

In fact, TimberTech was recently voted the number one ranked brand for quality US decking and railing in the 2019 Builder Brand Use Study and 2019 Remodelling Brand Use Report.

 

Why Choose American Decking?

The third biggest global wood product exporters in the world, America has long been a nation that has embraced its love of lumber, using its woodland resources for everything from housing and heating to furniture and flooring.

Needless to say, the US knows a thing or two about timber and, when it comes to the decking industry, America has the art of down to a science. That science has led them to revolutionise the industry with the composite decking we know and love today.

At TimberTech UK, we strive to maintain the high standards of our American counterparts with a product and service that brings American composite decking materials to UK shores. TimberTech UK uses American decking to give British homes the decking areas they deserve.

 

Benefits of American Decking

Fundamentally designed to withstand the demands of the outdoors, all of our imported American decking is slip, fade and abrasion resistant, built to last and maintain its aesthetic appeal for years to come.

In fact, we are so confident in the long-lasting composite materials used, TimberTech products come with a warranty of up to 30 years in length, giving you peace of mind to go with the feast for the eyes that graces your garden.

Whether you opt for solid composite decking or capped composite decking, when you use imported American decking from TimberTech UK, you’re using top-quality materials that look great, are durable as the day is long and in it for the long-haul.

As the days get shorter and the temperature gets colder, the allure of sitting out on your open decking area can lose its appeal in favour of the cosy warmth of the indoors.

However, leaving the golden-brown scenery untouched is a huge waste of one of nature’s most beautiful seasonal sights.

What’s more, the brisk outdoors can also be the perfect place to create some lasting fun-filled memories, especially if you have young children or grandkids to share it with.

Make the most of your autumnal landscape this season with these autumn garden activities.

Autumn Garden Ideas

With half-term just around the corner, we’ve delved deep into our rustic bag of tricks to give you’re a whole host of ways to enjoy your garden decking this autumn and give the whole family something to remember along the way.

 

Halloween

Perhaps the highlight of the entire autumn season, Halloween brings with it a whole host of outdoor fun just waiting to be had.

While the brisk weather may call for some decking downtime as the summer sun takes a back seat, now is the perfect time reconnect with your outdoor space.

Why not utilise your deck area to carve up a devilish Halloween pumpkin ready for the big day? Composite decking is perfect for this, providing a broad surface that won’t stain.

Similarly, where better to introduce the kids to apple bobbing than your water-resistant deck? No arduous clean-up and no fun police necessary.

What’s more, composite decking is also slip-resistant, making it the perfect surface for your underwater fruit-foraging activities.

 

Leaf Prints

If there’s one thing autumn isn’t short of, its leaves. They’re virtually inescapable at this time of year and, while beautiful at times, can leave your deck a little messy.

Why not kill two birds with one stone and use these leaves to create some fun autumn memories with your family?

Gather up the leaves that have landed haphazardly on your deck and pick out the biggest and best.

Put a blob of poster paint on a paper plate and simply place your leaf of choice into the paint and press the painted leaf onto a piece of paper of card.

Repeat with different leaves and colours to create a fun and colourful autumn pattern.

 

Leaf Rubbings

If the idea of poster paints sounds a little too messy for your liking, why not try leaf rubbings instead?

Repeat the steps from above, collecting the fallen leaves from your deck area and pick out your leaves of choice.

From there, simply, place your leaf bumpy side up and cover with a piece of paper, using a wax crayon or blunt pencil to rub over the surface until the whole leaf has been revealed.

 

Bonfire Night

If there was ever an autumn evening that was meant to be enjoyed outdoors, it’s bonfire night.

Whether you plan on creating your own firework display in your garden or simply want to enjoy the array of fireworks that grace the night sky, the garden deck area is the perfect place to watch the night unfold.

You can even get the kids involved by providing sparklers – just be sure to take the relevant safety precautions beforehand (e.g. gloves, water bucket, etc) and supervise at all times.

Why not make the most of the evening by lighting up the barbeque one last time before it goes into hibernation until the following summer?

Bonfire night could become the perfect evening for a family gathering, with ready-made entertainment and hot food to go with!

 

So, there you have it: plenty of fun-filled ways to make the most of your composite decking this autumn.
