But if you’re just starting to think about decking, the choices can be baffling. To give you some inspiration and fire up your imagination, here are our top 5 tips when considering decking ideas for gardens.

Decking isn't just for summer, and just because the leaves are turning orange doesn't mean your deck has to go into hibernation until March. A deck makes a great place to relax no matter what time of year it is, and popping out onto the decking every once in a while is a great way to combat the cooped-up winter blues.

Some decking requires a great deal of preparation for winter; staining, sealing, and several other procedures are needed to reinforce the wood against the elements. Composite decking, of course, is far more durable, and as long as you keep it clean and tidy, you can rest assured that your deck will still be in top condition when spring finally rolls around.

So whether we get an Indian summer or just a long, cold winter, there'll always be time to stand out on your deck and watch the seasons change. Autumn, with its distinctive colours and smells, is a beautiful time of year, so make sure you get out of the house every once in a while and experience it.

If you’re looking for hardwood decking boards, why not have a look at TimberTech’s range of composite decking? Although hardwood decking boards can look absolutely stunning, they need an awful lot of maintenance to stay looking so stunning. Then there’s the environmental impact of chopping down all those trees.

TimberTech, however, gives you all the benefits of hardwood decking boards, but without the downsides: no scrubbing, sanding, warping, splitting, varnishing – and extra green points too!

Here are four very good reasons to choose TimberTech over hardwood decking boards:

1. Looks just like the real thing
It’s hard to tell TimberTech from the real thing - our boards look just as good as their real wood counterparts!

2. Easy to fit
You don’t need specialist tools to fit TimberTech. It even comes with a grooved edge and hidden fastener system, so it’s simple to install and has no visible fastenings. And as it’s made from wood composite, there aren’t any knots so there’s no wastage.

3. Less work = more leisure
With TimberTech, there’s no need to invest time and money in keeping your decking boards looking good. While hardwood decking boards need stripping, cleaning and oiling regularly, all TimberTech needs is a quick jet wash once in a while, buying you more time to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

4. Greener and cleaner
With tropical forests under threat, could your conscience cope with splashing out on tropical hardwood decking boards? TimberTech is made from waste wood from the furniture industry, so we save literally tons of wood from going to landfill. This wood is ground into ‘wood flour’, mixed with polymer and used to produce our decking. And the zero-maintenance qualities mean you won’t be using chemicals to clean and treat your deck either.

If you’re planning on fitting some decking in your garden, looking at images of other people’s decking for inspiration can be the perfect way to get started.

Across the TimberTech website, we have galleries of garden decking pictures from our customer’s homes, so you can browse and be inspired. Whatever size your home is, and whatever your taste in design, you’ll find examples of decks that will show you how fantastic our products really can look.

You can see everything from roof decks to beachside balconies, raised decks to pool surrounds, and lots of examples of garden decking in various shapes, sizes and shades.

If you’re wondering what colour decking to go for, browse our galleries by decking colour and see what your chosen shade looks like in real life. We have lots of different colours on offer, from traditional wood tones like cedar or chestnut, to exotic hardwood hues like walnut and rosewood, or our ultra-modern colours like grey and brownstone, which are perfect for those with contemporary homes.

You can also view our galleries of garden decking pictures by product. Choose from four different decking products, including our best-selling Vertigrain board.

Our happy customer, Joanne Bates from Cirencester, emailed to tell us how much the galleries helped her when she was planning her deck. “I wanted a deck for my garden, but didn’t know where to start – there is just so much choice of different products and colours. When I found the TimberTech website, it was fantastic to be able to browse all the different galleries. There are some stunning decks on there, and it gave me loads of ideas for my own garden. I ended up with a deck design that was totally different to what I thought I’d choose, but I’m delighted with it.”

If you want to be as happy as Joanne, then give us a call on 029 2037 1584, and talk to our team of experts about turning your dream deck into a reality. 

Don’t think that decking designs for small gardens need to be boring. Just because you have a smaller outdoor space, that doesn’t mean you have a simple square deck.

Our deck design services can give you lots of ideas for decking designs for small gardens. Have a look at the galleries on our website for inspiration, or try our deck designer to create your perfect deck.

Lots of people put lots of imagination and creativity into decking designs for small gardens, mixing colours and textures in all sorts of interesting combinations – you can even browse our products by colour to choose the combination that you like.

Lay your boards horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Incorporate frames around the edge or shapes in the middle – the possibilities really are endless when it comes to decking designs for small gardens!
