Decking – Your Garden needs it
Garden decking is a type of art in Gardening. Without Garden decking you can only watch your Garden from far away. If you start using your Garden without decking then you are spoiling your own Garden. So decking plays an important role in Gardening.
Certain points should be noted while preparing for Garden decking. It’s essential to create a floored area at one end of the Garden and perhaps also a path through it on order to walk on a part of your Garden without walking on Grass. Concrete patios are a common way of doing but due to out of fashion they became fast falling.
We have other options with respect to the materials for creating your Decking. Nowadays people prefer Wooden decking method. There are two methods in decking; one is building straight over top of the Grass and another method is building on the top of an existing Patio. You can build your own decking.
A grate-style frame with Beams every meter or so is normal decking with planks of Wood fixed to the top. You can also buy parts from Garden centre. Decking is really a surprisingly easy Project if you have built things out of Wood before. For maintenance reasons leave the decking unpainted and natural. It may also look better.
Try to use Screws and an Electric Screwdriver, instead of Nails while assembling you’re decking. This is a good tip. It also saves you from effort. It is much more likely to hold up against the Elements and other wear the decking will get. The assembly will not be quite so simple when your decking is going to be raised high up above the Garden.
You will need to fit a Balustrade for safety reasons. Balustrades are the ‘safety bars’ structures you get on things like Balconies, coming up to about stomach level. These add design and beauty to the Decking structure and you may have to select the one that fits perfectly with the overall structure of the Decking. If your decking is high enough up then there is chances of Children or Pets could be hurt by falling off it then you definitely need them.
There would not be guarantee to your safety if you build those things by your self. So it is better to buy one from an experienced supplier that conforms to all the relevant safety regulations. Usually it will have been manufactured using Industrial techniques to make it much more secure. It is also resistant than one you could build yourself.
Therefore consider Garden decking as an art, and then your Garden will look like a Heaven on Earth.
