What type of decking is right for you?
If you are thinking about laying decking in your garden, you might be overwhelmed by the number of options that are out there. Before you can delve into decking ideas, you need to work out what type of decking will work best in your available space. So, which option is right for you? You should take into consideration your budget, the type of garden you have, and what you intend to use your deck for.
Ground Level Decking
Pros: Ground level decking is incredibly popular in households across the UK. It is not hard to see why, as ground level decking is normally very easy to install. Ground level decking is also often the cheapest type of decking to install due to its popularity.
Cons: Traditional timber decking at ground level can be susceptible to rotting. This is because the wood will be sitting directly on the ground, which means that it is in constant contact with the water in the soil. You can avoid this problem by adding proper ventilation underneath the wood or by using Teckwood’s composite decking. Talk to your Teckwood decking installer/supplier before you begin.
Pros: Multi-level decking looks very impressive and it can really improve the overall look of your garden. Multi-level decking tends to cover a larger area, so you can customise the area to fit your needs. If your garden is sloped but you still want to install decking, multi-level decking will help to solve this problem.
Cons: Unsurprisingly, multi-level decking is one of the most expensive types of decking and it may take a while to install. You also need to make sure that your multi-level decking is properly supported. For advise call the sales team at Teckwood on 0800 799 9082.
