Refresh your garden ready for summer with a smart new outside area. Decking can be used to create a special space for socialising, whether by the pool or as a bridge between indoors and outdoors. It can also make productive use of under-used garden areas which are sloped or un-even.
Decking can be a great DIY project if you have a limited budget but professionals can always be recommended. We stock both softwood and composite decking. For a more traditional look, softwood is cost effective and exceptionally easy to install. We supply everything from decking boards to patrice newel posts which support the balustrading. We also have anti-slip in stock too. All our decking is pressure treated to UC4 level and so is suitable to be in permanent contact with the ground outside. All of our timber meets FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) standards, meaning that it has been sourced from forests that have been independently certified as being responsibly managed. We currently offer softwood decking in classic green. Please click here for stock and sizes.
Composite Decking provides a maintenance free and long-lasting alternative which is is becoming an increasingly popular choice. We supply the UK’s leading brand of sustainable composite decking, Composite Prime HD Deck® Dual. This decking is made using recycled plastic and FSC® wood flour which ensures that it is sustainable, ethical and eco-friendly. HD Deck® Dual composite decking can be cut with standard woodworking tools and is held in place with a secret clip system. Fascia boards and end caps are also available to complete the job.
Composite decking contains the equivalent of more than 3,000 recycled plastic bottle caps per square metre. It is safe and incredibly child friendly as it is slip and stain resistant. HD Deck® Dual is dual-sided, offering a reversible two-colour option which gives the opportunity to lay a deck with contrasting colours. Composite Prime will not warp, bend or splinter and features a natural wood grain. It is free from hazardous substances, requires no staining, treating or painting and has a 25-year warranty.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for a quote or if you need any further advice. We look forward to hearing how you get on and please do share any photos with us on Facebook or Instagram and in the meantime, good luck with your any landscaping projects this bank holiday weekend.
James’ Easter Top Five
Be inspired by James’ Easter Top Five and make the most of your outdoor space this bank holiday weekend, as well as ensuring that the chickens are fed!
1. Softwood Decking
One of the most popular DIY projects over the Easter weekend is installing decking in your outdoor space. Softwood decking is cost effective and exceptionally easy to install. Decking can bridge between the indoors and outdoors and can also make productive use of under-used garden areas. Please click here for stock and sizes.
A great project to rejuvenate existing decking, garden furniture and fencing. Sadolin provides the best wood protection and a lick of wood-stain is sure to brighten up your garden ready for the warmer months.
3. Picket Panels
If your fencing has had a tough winter, then perhaps some new picket panel fencing is the answer? Picket panels provide an attractive finish to define the borders and boundaries and are quick and easy to erect. We stock round and pointed top panels which are 1.8 x 0.9m and pales which are 0.9 and 1.2m.
4. Softwood Sleepers
An Easter weekend essential! Thanks to their versatile nature, softwood sleepers can do just about anything! They are ideal for raised flower beds, lawn borders, retaining walls and also creating some stunning garden features. Please click here for stock and sizes.
5. Chicken Feed
James’ final top five is chicken feed as who else is going to provide the eggs for Easter Sunday! We stock Heygates Country Layers Pellets and Mixed Poultry Corn.
Please note that we are open on Good Friday 07:00 – 17:00 and Saturday 07:30-11:30. We are closed on Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries.
