Garden Decking brings Major Benefits for Homeowners

Garden decking is exceptionally versatile; can be used to overcome issues that make landscaping difficult, to enhance the features of a garden, to add practicality or to extend a house into a garden.

 
Essex landscape gardeners and decking experts D&G Garden World (http://www.dggardenworld.co.uk) have recently put together a list of the major benefits of garden decking. Co-owner David Smith says: “Decking looks attractive but it can be used for practical things too such as to even out sloping ground and to extend a living space outdoors.”
 
The garden landscaping company, which has an outlet in Upminster and operates throughout Essex and East London, has the following advice:
 
Use Decking to counteract Sloping or Uneven Ground
Garden decking can counteract uneven ground and sloping sites.  Building on stilts and using steps and different levels will give the impression of uniformity and will make a garden much easier to navigate.
 
Design without Limitation
There is a plethora of decking materials available and add-on features such as pergolas, balustrades and privacy screens. Adding a deck allows a whole host of flexible interesting design possibilities. Garden decking can easily be combined with other garden features like water features, statues, rock gardens and planting to achieve a garden centrepiece.
 
Easier to Handle than Hard Landscaping Materials
Garden decking is easier to handle than hard landscaping materials like paving and bricks. It is lighter too, which means it is good for raised areas and much easier to handle, especially if not experienced in any construction trade.
 
Adding Value to a Property
Decking can be used for a wide variety of uses, the most popular of which is extending living space outdoors to create the illusion of a larger property. Decking provides a home with a socialising area and is perfect for properties on riverbanks or even for caravans.
 
David Smith summarises by saying, “Garden decking allows you to create a practical and attractive garden design that provides additional space for entertaining and socialising without a large outlay. Why not get a quote from your local landscape gardener and see how much it would cost to install decking in your garden? It could even add value to your property!”
