We have another beautiful decking project to share with you!

These images were sent in by a customer, who recently used our EasyClean Terrain+ Silver Maple boards to add a gorgeous decked area to their wonderful home.



The results are stunning, if we do say so ourselves. The sleek Silver Maple decking is a great match to the contemporary outdoor furniture set, and the customer did a great job of giving their new deck a green finish with wonderful shrubs!



Our EasyClean Terrain+ Silver Maple composite decking is a strikingly modern option that’s perfect for any garden. The boards have an attractive 'Spectrum' design that's created by putting the boards through the manufacturing process twice and layering one colour on top of the other. The results look remarkable in practically any setting!

Our Silver Maple composite decking is capped with a fully protective polymer sleeve, this means it can cope with just about anything you throw at it! A quick wipe is all that’s needed to get your boards back to looking brand new.

The number of customers who come to us without really knowing the difference between our composite product and plastic decking is quite surprising. Due to the fact that they both provide an alternative to traditional wooden decking, people presume that they must be quite similar, but we are soon able explain to them why composite decking is a much better alternative to a fully synthetic, plastic deck.

While both are far easier to maintain than real wood, the similarities between the two options start and end there. For one thing, plastic decking is not a very green choice, while composite decking is a great way to reduce waste and protect the environment. Created with wood that would otherwise be deemed useless and get sent to landfill, our composite decking is a great choice for gardeners who want to improve their garden while showing respect towards their natural environment.

Plastic decking is also hollow, which can make it prone to cracking and warping under pressure. Unlike composite decking, it is also prone to fading over time due to the elements, which is not something you want from a supposedly long-lasting decking product. If you invest in our composite decking, it will come with the addition of a 25 year warranty, which demonstrates the confidence that we have in the strength and resilience of our product.

Just remember that although you may initially pay less for plastic decking, it is likely to cost you more in the long-term if you intend on making your deck a permanent feature. Not only will it look rather cheap and unconvincing up close, but it will eventually fade and deteriorate far more rapidly than a composite deck. If you would like a more in depth comparison, you can read more about the two decking options here.

Grey decking is becoming increasingly popular amongst our customers, and it's not difficult to see why. As the popularity and appeal of the industrial trend continues to gain momentum, it's hard to recall a time when home and garden accessories in muted colour palettes weren't a staple in many homes.Whether it's from our commercial or residential customers, there seems to be an increased appetite for an alternative to the traditional warm, natural wood tones, in favour of a cool, subdued grey palette. Although we agree that both warm and cool decks can look fantastic in any outdoor space, we thought we'd focus on the use of grey decking today, to offer some inspiration to those who may be seeking this alternative. 

Use One: Brighten up a Shaded Area 

Light grey decking can be an ideal way to add a bright, modern addition to a shaded area with lots of greenery, providing an interesting contrast to the more traditional aspects of a garden design. As you can see below, our VertiGrain decking in grey works fantastically in large spaces, bringing an increased sense of light and space in a more secluded area.

Use Two: Contrast With Warm Tones

If your property has warm coloured brickwork or dark wood finishes, grey decking can be a fantastic way to create a stylish contrast between the two areas. Thanks to the warmer tones in our Edeck boards, our customers are able to bring a new contemporary edge to their property without creating a sense of mismatch. The deck compliments brickwork perfectly, combining traditional and modern elements to create an attractive and functional space.

Use Three: Go all Grey

Grey decking can look fantastic in combination with grey walls and furniture, creating a stunning monochromatic look without appearing too uniform or drab. When combined with brightly coloured accessories and plants, all-grey spaces can appear stylish as well as homely, as you can see from this image of our Ashwood deck below.

Use Four: Pair With White Accessories 

Grey decking looks incredible in combination with white garden dining sets and other outdoor living accessories, producing a stunning yet subtle monochromatic finish. It also looks incredible against garden greenery.

Your garden is probably the last thing on your mind at this time of year. And, frankly, we don't blame you - it's the middle of January! Most sensible Britons haven't set foot in their back gardens since Bonfire Night.

But while January may seem like an odd point at which to start thinking about doing up your outdoor space, it's actually the perfect time to do so if you want to make the most of your garden in spring and summer. Big home improvements don't happen overnight, and anyone who's thinking of overhauling the garden in 2016 - by adding some garden decking, for example - would do well to start planning those changes now.

So where to start?

If you'd like to add a deck to your home in spring 2016, we recommend that you order some free samples now and start thinking about which boards and which colour/style you'd like to use. This will give you ample time to finalise your deck design and get everything installed in time for the start of springtime, allowing you to dedicate the warmer months entirely to enjoying your new addition!

Recently, one of our satisfied TimberTech customers got in touch to share some images from their finished garden project. We thought we would share them with you to show how versatile composite decking can be, and to demonstrate how our products could be integrated into your own garden space. 

Cedar deck 1

As you will notice from the image above, our customers used our stunning Cedar VertiGrain decking to add new dimension and texture to their garden.

This image also shows how versatile our composite decking can be, for example, being used as a bright and minimal seating solution.

  Our customers also created a dedicated dining area at the end of their garden, by adding a raised deck platform to their space.

Cedar deck 3

Our decking also works particularly well in this hot tub/veranda area, due to it's water and slip-resistant properties, making it ideal for use near water.
