A lot of our customers call or email asking our advice on how to build raised decking. Many people think that decking is only suitable for flat gardens, and might be difficult to fit on a slope or a raised surface.
Fortunately, that's not true. We've fitted our decking on the steepest of slopes and the highest of balconies. Here, we tackle some of the common myths that people encounter when thinking about how to build raised decking.
Myth #1: Decking is only suitable for flat gardens.
We've had so many customers with sloping gardens ask us how to build raised decking. Many of them doubt that it's possible, but rest assured, it is!
Have a look at our decking galleries for lots of real-life examples of our boards in action. You'll see raised decking in all kinds of situations, from raised porches on park homes to decks with steps in sloping gardens. No matter what type of garden you have or what decking you fancy, we can help you find a solution that works with your space and requirements.
Myth #2: You can't use decking on balconies.
Nope - quite the opposite. Decking technology has come a long way in recent years, and all of our decking boards are suitable for use on balconies and roof terraces.
Myth #3: Decking has to be flat against the ground.
No - raise it up, we say! Shape steps out of decking for your sloping garden. Build a balcony and enjoy the elevated view. Add a surround to your hot tub and sip bubbly under the stars. Treat your holiday home to a veranda and enjoy relaxing in the great outdoors.
