Summer Has Arrived – Time To Build Some Garden Decking.
The summer has finally arrived; it’s time to ditch those early nights in front of the television in favour of long, blissful summer evenings in the garden. At last you can reap the rewards of your spring planting by relaxing in the sun and watching your garden bloom.
We are all tightening our belts but it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom, 2012 is a jubilee year and the extra bank holiday is the perfect opportunity to invite over some friends and get the BBQ out; and for that you need the perfect outdoor living space. The GardenAdvice team believe that creating the ideal space for summer fun shouldn’t be expensive or hard work. For a easy, fast, long lasting solution to creating an outdoor living space in your garden decking has to be one of the best solutions. That’s why for us, summer landscaping is all about decking.
The advantages of getting decked out
Making the best of your garden will add value to your house and decking provides an elegant modern solution to landscaping your garden, as it marries contemporary design and natural materials. In creating an outdoor living space you can create a perfect area for summer socialising, outdoor dinner parties, and a safe clean space for the kids play. Decking has become increasingly popular in the UK as Brits embrace a more continental design and take full advantage of the sun.
Decking is incredibly durable and easy to maintain, Scandinavian soft woods work really well in Britain because the wood is grown in a very similar climate to our own. This means the wood is far less likely to warp and crack, so it will keep a freshly laid look for much longer. If you are worried about your carbon foot print, less energy is used to harvest and transport the materials used in decking than any of the other man made materials used in landscaping, such as paving and concrete. Wooden decking has a natural advantage in that it is bio degradable and therefore far better for the environment in terms of disposal than other landscaping alternatives. So you can soak up the sun guilt free as you have chosen the most eco-friendly landscaping solution possible.
