A lot of people planning their garden makeovers are worried about how to install decking. A quick search on various DIY forums offer conflicting advice. “It’s easy!” say some. “It’s a nightmare!” say others.
They’re usually talking about how to install decking that comes from a DIY superstore – your bog-standard, softwood decking - the installation of which can involve a lot of wasted timber, and whilst it will look good in the short term, a softwood deck will soon succumb to the elements and become covered in algae and slippery. So, why not rediscover decking and take a look at composite decking, which is a different product altogether. You’ll get the clean lines and neat finish of traditional decking, with the look of real wood, but without the fiddly installation, and maintenance .
