Four Reasons Why You Need Garden Decking

With the new year now upon us, many people’s attention will inevitably start to turn to home renovations. As well as redecorating your home’s interior, sprucing up gardens or outdoor space often top a homeowner’s list of priorities.

Installing decking in your garden is one way to do this, adding a contemporary and sophisticated element to your outdoor space.    

Combining both practicality and aesthetics, garden decking can be made from a variety of materials with paving stones and natural wood among the most popular choices. 

At R & J Landscapes (London), we have over 30 years of experience providing homeowners in Watford and Harrow with top of the range decking installation. Expertly fitted to enhance every element of your outdoor space, we know first-hand just how garden decking can boost your property’s exterior. 

With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of the main advantages that garden decking can bring to your home. 

It looks great 

Let’s be honest, when it comes to garden renovations cosmetics are always the main motivation. And with garden decking, you’re sure to improve the overall look of your garden with its addition. 

Available in a whole host of styles and designs, the premier level of materials typically used in decking installation can complement your garden’s existing features while bringing its own sleek and suave aesthetic to the party. As well as helping improve the look of your garden, garden decking can also help to replace or cover up any old or unsightly aspects of your outdoor space – meaning you can focus solely on the bits that look fantastic.     

Plus, decking provides a place for decorative features or ornaments to be on show, further refining your garden’s appearance. 

It adds value to your home

Another great advantage of having decking installed at your home is that it can actually increase the value of your property. A nice garden or outdoor space is always a perk that buyers look for when purchasing a property, and if you have garden decking in place the value of your home is highly likely to increase. 

Garden decking is also extremely family-friendly and could be the difference between a prospective buyer making an offer or not.  

It provides a place to socialise 

Want to spend some time dining al fresco during the summer months? Maybe you want an outdoor space for people to gather when hosting a party? Or maybe you just want a place to kick back and relax with loved ones that doesn’t have to be indoors. 

Whatever the case, garden decking provides a fantastic outdoor socialising space that is sure to make your property the envy of the neighbourhood. Not only will outdoor decking offer a wonderful place to spend time with friends and family, but it’ll also provide your exterior with additional space – meaning you can invite even more people over to enjoy it! 

Easy to maintain 

Unlike some outdoor furniture or garden features, decking is extremely durable and low maintenance – meaning it has the longevity to last. You won’t have to worry about forking out significant funds to clean, repair or maintain decking on a regular basis, instead you can rest assured it will stand the test of time, looking great long after it’s been installed.

Despite spending all of its time exposed to the elements, cracking and breaking of the decking is unlikely.
