England entered its second nationwide lockdown yesterday. The new restrictions replace the multi-tier system that was previously in effect, means that people in all parts of England must now stay at home and avoid contact with other households. Meanwhile, Wales is nearing the end of a two-week 'firebreak' lockdown, but future lockdowns have not been ruled out.
Whichever part of the UK you call home, limits on where you can go and how many people you can meet will probably remain in force for some time yet. Yes, 2020 is nearly at an end, but even with a new year just around the corner, there's little reason to believe that the coronavirus pandemic will be over any time soon.
Still, as we discussed during the first big lockdown of 2020, staying at home doesn't necessarily have to mean staying indoors. Even under the strict lockdown rules that apply to England as of 5th November, you are still free to enjoy your own garden if you have one.
The benefits of adding a deck to your garden
Even if we aren't subjected to yet another full lockdown in 2021, it's very likely that at least some restrictions will remain in place. For this reason, we strongly recommend ensuring that your outdoor living space is ready for action - you'll probably be using it a lot when spring comes back around!
Building a deck is a fantastic way to get more from your outdoor space. The addition of a deck - even a relatively small one - can make your garden feel more like an outdoor living room, and it can be used for all sorts of different activities, including:
- Outdoor dining with the family
- Cocktails in the garden
- Relaxing with a good book
- Meditation, yoga, Pilates, etc.
- Playing and learning with your kids
- Sunbathing on hot summer days
- Stargazing at night
These are just some of the ways in which our previous customers have used their TimberTech decks. There are plenty of other great benefits and possibilities - for instance, you could install a hot tub, erect a veranda to keep you sheltered from the elements, or even plant some flowers in your deck's built-in containers!
TimberTech's low-maintenance composite decking is ideal for all sorts of different outdoor spaces. If you've got a project in mind for 2021, please feel free to get in touch with our decking experts!
