Do you miss cosiness and atmosphere in your garden? Then the ideal solution is to build a stylish decking area. But what are the costs of laying a decking and what are the possibilities? Find out below!
Bring some cosiness into your garden by making a decking unit by the water
A decking can add a lot of cosiness to your garden. With a decking area you create a place where you can relax with your family. It is ideal for creating a lounge area, so that you can enjoy it even more. If you choose a decking at the water's edge, your wooden terrace will be even cosier.
But a decking doesn't necessarily have to be by the water. You can have it built anywhere you like. The purpose of building a decking is to create a secluded spot in your garden. You can also use it to create a difference in height. That makes your garden even more stylish!
What materials can you choose from?
If you are going to build a decking, you can choose between a synthetic decking or a wooden one. Most people choose a wooden decking, but also a synthetic one has its advantages. What is the best choice for you?
A plastic decking is actually made of composite (a mix between wood and plastic). Choose a composite decking if you are looking for the most advantageous option. Composite decking is not only very affordable, it also lasts a long time, on average more than 25 years. In addition, you never have to worry about splinters, so you can walk on it with your bare feet, ideal when you come out of the pool. The disadvantage of composite decking is that there are fewer laying possibilities, because some shapes are more difficult to lay. Whether this is the best choice for you therefore depends on what design you want. You can always ask one of our gardeners for advice.
Wooden decking is more expensive, but has a charm that cannot be matched. Also, wood often lasts up to 25 years, so in terms of durability it is certainly not inferior, although the durability depends on the type of wood you choose. If you opt for a wooden decking, you also have more choice, as all shapes can be made with wood.
