spring 2021

Can you believe that Spring is just around the corner? 2020 was such a strange and upsetting year, and we're sure that most of you are looking forward to spring 2021! With vaccinations taking place across the UK, it shouldn't be long until our lives can return back to some kind of normality.

That being said, things might not be completely normal straight away. It's likely that interactions between households will continue to be regulated and might even be limited to outdoor spaces and gardens for a while. If you get your garden ready for the sunny months ahead now, then you'll be ready when the time comes for us to see our friends and family again!

Treat yourself to a new TimberTech deck and you'll be ready to lap up the sunshine in spring 2021. Let's take a look at a few popular decking options and explore the different ways you can get your garden ready for the sunny months ahead.

Best Composite Decking for Your Spring Garden

We know that money is tight for a lot of people at the moment, but that shouldn't mean that you compromise on the quality of your garden renovation. If you're looking for a high-quality composite decking option that won't break the bank, take a look at our EasyClean Edge Maritime Grey decking

The beautiful contemporary grey shade combined with the beautiful wood-grain effect makes this decking the perfect addition to any modern garden. Like all of our composite decking ranges, EasyClean Edge Maritime Grey is incredibly easy to maintain and even comes with a 25-year warranty so you know it'll look incredible for years to come. We've dropped the price from £61.76 per m² to only £55.00 per m².

Add some planters

Another great way to get your garden ready for spring 2021 (and use up any leftover decking) is to create a wonderful garden planter. This is a great way to prepare a space for new plants and flowers that will thrive in the spring.

These are a great addition to your garden and will also match perfectly with your decking if you use your leftover boards. Of course, if you'd prefer to make standalone planters, you can use any large container. We've seen people use everything from garden pots to old bathtubs!

Seating area

If there's one thing you're sure to make use of during spring 2021, it's a comfortable seating area. Whether you want to entertain guests or relax in the sun with a good book, incorporating a seating area into your garden for spring/summer is not a decision you'll regret.

Spring accessories

Another great way to give your garden a refresh for spring is to update your garden accessories. Think about the kinds of activities you'll want to do this spring, then you can tailor the accessories to suit your needs. 

Want to eat alfresco more often this spring? Take a look at upgrading your BBQ, invest in a new table or think about building your very own pizza oven!

Want to spend more time in the garden relaxing? Consider adding a free-standing hammock or sun lounger, get a fire pit for the colder evenings and make sure you've got a parasol to protect you while your sunbathing.

Want to entertain more guests this year? Invest in an outdoor bar, a garden room or shelter and install some waterproof lights so you can party into the night.

However you see your garden evolving for spring 2021, now is the time to get your plans in action. Get in touch with the TimberTech team to order your composite decking now.

Splitting your garden over different layers is a great way to maximise space. In fact, adding tiered decking and steps is one of the best-known tricks in the garden design industry to help make small gardens appear bigger. When your entire garden exists on one plane, things can look flat and uninteresting. That's why outdoor steps are becoming increasingly popular. Of course, when you decide to add outdoor steps to your garden, you want to feel reassured that they'll look good, last a long time and be perfectly safe for everyone in your household to use.

When you decide to add a deck to your garden, it's not a decision that you take lightly. There's planning, installation and maintenance to think about before you embark on your garden renovation. After all, you want to make sure that the decking you choose isn't going to need ripping up and replacing in only a few years time!

One of the main reasons that homeowners choose TimberTech composite decking is because it lasts so much longer than traditional timber boards. Where wood is susceptible to rot, water damage, splitting and splintering (not to mention the hours of maintenance it demands), composite decking has a polymer sleeve which eliminates all these problems!

There's a common misconception that composite decking has a 'plastic' or 'fake' appearance. Back when composite decking first appeared on the market, this might have been true, but now we have manufacturing tools that allow us to create composite deck boards with all the character and charm of real wood. 

One of the many drawbacks of choosing the real thing is that it actually loses its beauty over time because it's easily weathered. (Take a look at the comparison image above if you don't believe us!)For that reason, you're actually better off choosing composite decking if you want to keep a real wood look for longer than a few years. Unlike real wood, composite decking doesn't need to be sanded, stained or sealed to keep it looking fresh.

Who said you had to stick to one colour of decking boards? We certainly didn’t. In fact, one of our favourite things is when a customer comes to us with an idea on how to combine two of our composite decking colours for a mixed decking design. We’re in love with all the mixed decking designs we’ve done so why not explore the option yourself? It’s sure to add an extra flair to your outdoor space!
