The garden deck is both a practical and beautiful addition to your home and its surroundings. A well-designed deck creates an area of interest in what might otherwise be a banal stretch of ground, and a focus for plant arrangements, lighting and seating. The deck is invariably an extension of the main house, a way of bridging that chasm between indoors and outdoors. A deck can be straightforward, just a simple platform across rough garden terrain. You may want to extend your indoor living area by placing the deck outside of a French door. You may want an even deck or a tiered deck, a regular rectangle or a fashionable, hexagonal shape. Whatever deck you choose, you want to get it right.
Spend Less Time Cleaning Your Decking and More Time Enjoying it
It's getting towards that time of year when our decking gets the most use. We all love to spend some quality time in the sunshine, but nobody likes cleaning their decking. If you are planning to have friends around though, that's exactly what you'll need to do. Our Easyclean Terrain capped decking boards will make that laborious task much easier!
Currently discounted by 20% in our sale, this revolutionary decking material is super easy to clean. The secret is that each board is capped with a layer of protective polymer, making it almost entirely waterproof, and much more resistant to dirt and stains. They can be cleaned using nothing more than a damp cloth!
Decking is so popular these days because it’s an easy way to add value and versatility to your property. What’s more, it is one of the most pleasurable places people can gather to have a good time. Why not make those late night gatherings on your deck more comfortable by adding some discreet lighting.
Lighting up the decking is the cost-effective solution to this problem, especially if it is done in a visually appealing way. How else can you take full advantage of the visual appeal of the rich colour and texture of the wood? Fortunately, decking lights which can add a touch of class to your decking are now available.
There are several varieties of decking lights to choose from, depending on the kind of setting you want to install them in. You can bathe the entire setting in a glow of light that brings out most of the aesthetic properties of the wood or you can utilise understated but gorgeous light which is just bright enough to serve its function.
Recent innovations in lighting have opened up the possibilities for illuminating the decking. Application of LED lights has recently gained popularity because they consume very little energy and they can easily be placed on, around or in the decking. They are great at adding definition to the decking area.
LED lights are fabulous looking and they add a bit of discreet elegance to the decking area. Not only are they weatherproof, they are sturdily built and are completely safe to walk on, even in bare feet. You can turn your decking into a safer and more relaxing area by simply lighting up the space.
We all know how adding the right decking can improve your outdoor living space. Adding decking to your house instantly helps maximize floor space, making a property seem significantly more expansive, whilst increasing the usability of your garden for friends and family alike. Or, as a stand-alone feature, it can be used to elevate an area , highlighting a shady glade or sunny spot. However, traditional timber can mean a degree of time-consuming maintenance. Perhaps during the winter the stain or oil used to treat the decking has peeled away. This could result in you having to sand it down, retreating it every spring or summer before it’s ready to be enjoyed…
This is where TimberTech’s VertiGrain 2 Composite Decking can save you hours of potentially back-breaking labour. It’s one of the most popular from TimberTech’s range, and for good reason, providing a beautiful grained surface that really looks and feels like real wood. What it doesn’t require is anything like the same level of upkeep as the more commonly used hardwood and softwood decking. In fact, VertiGrain 2 doesn’t need to be sealed or stained at all. Neither will it warp, rot or splinter. It’s available in two different colours, ready to match almost any outdoor design you can think of, and once installed it’ll look great year in year out, whatever the weather!

While decking is conventionally associated with residential home improvements, it also provides a great outdoor surface for commercial properties, particularly office buildings and complexes.
If your job involves being stuck indoors for hours, it can be great to have a stylish and relaxing outdoor space to retreat to during your break times, allowing you to recharge your energy levels and refresh yourself fully before continuing with your work. Having an attractive outdoor area can also enhance the impression that your visitors and clients get when visiting your establishment, allowing you to extend your professionalism throughout every aspect of your business's presentation.
A few years ago we were approached by stock exchange platform NASDAQ, to assist in the commercial redesign of their London offices, by providing decking and glass balustrading for a sleek, new roof terrace. Not only did this allow them to create an outdoor space to impress their visitors, it also granted them a long-lasting and easy-to-clean alternative to their previously stained and weather-worn surface.
We have also provided decking for Renewable Energy Systems in the past, in order to create a beautiful, curved walkway outside of their offices in Hertfordshire. As a company dedicated to renewable energy solutions, RES wanted to ensure that the project not only looked good, but was completed in an environmentally-concious way. Thanks to our eco-friendly and energy-saving methods, our decking provided the perfect product to transform their outdoor space, without compromising the company's reputation.
