The Natural Beauty of Composite Decking

Why would any homeowner consider installing wood plastic composite decking over wood? The standard answer could be, “I am fed up maintaining my wooden decking” or even “it is falling apart; we cannot even use it anymore.” Who wants to maintain a decking? I want something better!

Teckwood’s composite decking lasts longer and is easier to own than traditional wood, it captures all the warmth and beauty of natural wood, from the textures and colour... Read More

The green alternative

The now well established idea of the back garden patio conjures up images of idyllic afternoons napping in a hammock or festive get-togethers around the BBQ with ice cold beer. But maintaining that elevated expanse of timber is a one of life’s chores.

The benefits of composite decking

Sitting on my parents decking watching the sun go down is one of my favourite memories of summer, but I also have my fair share of bad memories.

National Weed Your Garden Day

Weeds grow fast, very fast. If you stay on top of the weeding in your garden for 5 to 10 minutes per day it will make the job seem a little more bearable. Young weeds are easily dealt with but what about those areas that are not so easy to get too? For example, under your beautiful decked area.

Leaving the area below your deck uncovered can allow weeds and other plants to sprout, eventually leading to weeds pushing up between your deck boards making the area look unsightly and creatin... Read More
