As we enter the final weeks of summer, the days of autumn 2014 promise to be a small taste of the Indian Summer we are told exists – heat in the day, but a coolness at night. This drop in temperature allows flora and fauna respite from the harsh sun and, for one last time, colours bloom before the autumn of gold, reds, oranges and yellows that the oncoming winter is now not far off.
As we prepare to ‘shut down the garden’ for the winter, think for a moment about your use of it – did you get the best from your outdoor space? Or was there something missing?
What is garden decking at your Cambuslang home?
Decking, at its simplest, is a type of outdoor ‘floor’. It is designed and constructed to hold heavy weights, from several people, BBQs, furniture and accessories and is also built to withstand the weather.
The great thing about decking parts of your Cambuslang garden is that any uneven surfaces can be ‘hidden’; so entertaining friends and family on a lumpy-bumpy lawn could be a thing of the past!
Decking is traditionally associated with wood and this is no bad thing. As a natural product, it ‘fits’ visually with many Cambuslang properties; you can also have lots of creative fun, staining garden decking different colours and finishes.
However, for some people, using wood is a downside, especially cheaper, softer wood as to maintain it takes time, energy and money to keep it not only looking good but functional.
As a result, there is a new material that people are becoming more interested in; technology and manufacturing techniques have increased and developed in large strides in recent years and a new material called ‘composite’ wood is now available.
Strong and hardy, people are opting for this as a decking material at their Cambuslang properties simply because it look like, wood, is affordable and requires little, if any maintenance.
On the other hand, suggestions are that it can be slippery and not everyone is a fan of its appearance; early examples of the material tended to look artificial. But, it can also bend with time, hence its longevity and robustness for some, is in doubt.
There is no doubt that as soon as the warmer months of spring come upon us, many people take time to complete various jobs and improvement around the home and taking on building new decking at their Cambuslang home could be one of them.
However, if you want your garden transformed – virtually over-night! – then professional are the people to call. Discover how to transform your Cambuslang garden with decking!
