Types of decking we can install for you

New decking installed in a London property

Softwood and hardwood deckings are both types that can give a natural character to any outdoor area. They can be sanded and oiled if damaged, but with proper maintenance, your new garden construction can last up to 30 years. Softwood decking boards tend to be more affordable than hardwood materials, so if you are on a budget, this could be the perfect option for you.

Composite decking boards are made from a mixture of wood particles and plastic, making your new fabulous outdoor feature water-resistant and anti-slippery. It’s a low-maintenance alternative to the classic decking boards and regular jet washing is all it needs to keep it looking brand-new. Mould, fungi and rot won’t be a problem you’ll have to face with composite decking. Oiling and staining won’t be necessary, either, so if all this sounds great to you, hire the Fantastic Gardeners to transform your garden.

Other decking services we offer

  • Take your garden decking area to a higher level by adding garden lights to it. We can install them around the area, or we can embed them in the boards, to emphasize the area. Of course, we can install garden lights in other areas of your garden, too.
  • If you already have a decking, but it has broken boards, we can help you replace or repair them.
  • And if you have a decking with worn-off and discolour boards, we can help you restore it. We offer pressure washing cleaning, oiling and staining services which will restore the original look of your wooden deck. You can also count on us if you need reliable fence installation near you.

Frequently asked questions

Q: Do I need planning permission to build a deck?
A: You don’t need a planning permit as long as your decking’s height is no more than 30cm, it’s not within 20 metres of a motorway and it doesn’t cover more than 50% of the garden area. We suggest you always consult with your local council before undertaking any construction.
Q: My garden is sloped. Can I still have a decking?
A: Absolutely! It’s even easier to build a deck on a slope, so it won’t be a problem for us.
Q: How long will my deck last?
A: Deckings are built from high-quality wooden or composite materials. With proper maintenance and care, your deck should last between 15 to 30 years before it needs any repairs.
Q: Can you install lights on the decking?
A: Yes, we do offer garden lighting installation service. We suggest you use LED lights as they are energy-efficient and don’t heat up.
Q: Where else can you install outdoor lights?
A: We can install garden lighting systems onto decks, patios, along pathways and driveways, on stairs, and fences. Let us know what your ideas are and leave the rest to us.
Q: Why should I consider an outdoor garden lighting installation?
A: Security, safety and accentuating on your garden features are the main reasons why this is a good decision to make. By illuminating certain dark areas of your outdoor spaces, you’ll prevent burglars from entering your property. It also makes it safe for you and your family to walk in your garden when it gets dark.
Q: Is it safe to walk on a wet decking?
A: Yes, it is. Just remember to regularly clean it from surface deposits such as moss, algae and mildew. Give your decking a good pressure washing twice a year to keep it clean and well-maintained.
Q: Some of my decking boards are chipped or broken. Do you offer deck repair services?
A: Certainly! We offer an outdoor repairs service where we tackle such projects.
