To deck or not to deck, that is the question!

To deck or not to deck, that is the question!

The sun is in the sky (at long last!) and soon our minds and eyes will turn to the garden and all the jobs that spring brings with it.

We once again will hope for an Indian summer so that we can enjoy the great outdoors and beauty of our gardens, and maybe you’re thinking of installing some hard standing from which to enjoy the fruits of your labour from, “To deck or not to deck”

There are a huge range of different timber types and colours to consider if you are thinking of decking and also some fantastic slabs and flag stones in a range of different colours and shapes. With the introduction of slabs you can create a fresh modern look with decorative diamonds, circles squares, or with the use of weathered slabs create an area that looks like it’s been there for years. The use of decking brings a more modern look to your garden with clean lines and the option to add a balustrade or ornamental rope and there are also a huge range of outdoor decking lights to add a bit of sparkle!

Have a look at what other people have done with their gardens, in magazines and search on-line for different ideas from around the world, let your imagination run wild!
