From fencing to pond installation, Grants Gardens and Landscapes are the complete package for outdoor spaces in Crawley. One of the areas our landscaping experts specialise in is decking. Decking can be an elegant and exotic garden improvement, and matched with the styles of your fencing and pond installation, can create a classy and high-end feel to your Crawley garden without breaking the bank. On this page, we discuss our decking service in more detail.
Just like our fencing, hardwood and softwood decking can be installed by our landscaping team, tailored to the exact requirements of each Crawley customer. We are even able to install UPVC decking, as a more cost-effective option. Decking is available in a variety of materials, sizes and shapes, to be used to create relaxing outdoor spaces, perfect for outdoor dining with a pond installation setting the ambience. Our landscaping experts feel that timber is a high performance material for decking, with the additional benefit of minimal maintenance.
Our experience has taught us that decking is one of the best ways to extend indoor living space into your Crawley garden. Complete flexibility in decking designs gives Grants Gardens and Landscapes the opportunity to show off its creativity, which can also be applied to our fencing and pond installations. Your decking can be enhanced with the use of stylish planting schemes, benches, pergolas and trellises, fitted to the specifications of each and every Crawley customer, whether in a private residential garden or a public garden on a commercial property.
If you are a Crawley homeowner trying to choose between a patio or decking for your garden, we’ve outlined some of the pros and cons here. One of the benefits of patios are their easy maintenance. However, they do require occasional jet washing to remove muck and debris between paving gaps. Decking, on the other hand, may only require seasonal oiling to retain colour. Patios are available in a wide variety of colours, shapes and textures, but with a range of hardwoods and softwoods, decking can look far more natural and match more easily with your pond installation or fencing.
Decking is a relatively quick and easy construction, requiring little excavation and groundworks, whereas patios require considerable reinforcement. The main consideration for Crawley residents to bear in mind when choosing between decking and patios is cost, with decking being the far more cost-efficient option. Green-minded Crawley residents may also like to note that sustainable timber decking can be much more environmentally friendly than concrete patios.
