Garden Decking: Your Summer DIY Project
The official start of summer is just a few short weeks away and so it's the perfect time to get to work on making your garden into a beautiful place to enjoy and relax in with family and friends. One of the most rewarding projects you can undertake is to create garden decking and you'll find an extensive selection of decking components and accessories right here at JAS Timber.
Before you get started on planning your garden decking, it's crucial to determine whether you will need planning permission from your local authority. You will need to seek such permission if your proposed decking structure will exceed 30cm in height above the ground and/or if the completed decking will cover more than 50% of the garden. It is against the law to build such a structure without the proper permission. If you are unsure, it is advisable to get in touch with your local authority before you commence work.
Timber is the ideal material from which to create garden decking. Its natural beauty is absolutely timeless and its natural appearance works perfectly with almost any design scheme, enriching and enhancing the natural aesthetics of your home and garden. Our collection of decking components, including boards, spindles, newel posts and handrails, can be combined in infinite ways to create the ideal structure.
Garden decking is primarily erected in the space usually occupied by a patio. The fact is, however, that decking is exceptionally versatile and can be used in many other areas, such as around pools/ponds and beneath pergolas. The only limit is your imagination!
We supply timber decking components that have been pressure treated; this process gives the components a strong, lasting resistance to the rotting and warping that can be caused by constant exposure to the elements. Garden decking made using these components offers a long service life and requires minimal maintenance, giving you more time to simply enjoy the new addition to your existing outdoor living space.
The durability and service life of a timber decking structure can be further enhanced with the application of Ronseal Decking Stain, which is also available from JAS Timber at the most competitive price. This popular product, supplied in cans containing 2.5 litres, is designed to help the timber resist blistering, peeling and cracking while also adding a beautiful splash of colour. Ronseal Decking Stain is available from JAS Timber in four attractive colour options: Country Oak, Rich Mahogany, Rustic Pine and Golden Cedar.
