Add a pergola for shade
A pergola is ideal for protecting you from strong sunlight. You can also grow climbing plants to break up the structure. You can use bamboo matting for the roof and sides or leave the sides open and use lattice fence panels as a cost effective roof that diffuses the strongest of the suns rays.
Build a raised deck
If you have a raised area in your garden, then it can be the perfect place for a raised deck that will give a focal point for your garden. It’s best to add railings for safety. Decks are ideal for garden furniture, BBQs and entertaining.
Add colour to your decking
You can brighten up your decking with the use of plants. Don’t forget to choose the right pots to complement the style of your deck and garden.
Create your own look
It’s easy to theme your decking to suit your own style for example create a nautical feel by using storm lanterns, blue tones, anchors etc. Or you could create a great children’s area by using bright coloured furniture and large cushions.
