Creating a summer patio area

Finally summer is here! Although there was a slow start, we are expected to see plenty of blue skies over the next few months – and it’s about time! This means that we will be wanting to get back outside into our gardens, hosting barbeques and enjoying family gatherings in the sunshine! So how can you make your garden looking extra special? With a fresh new patio area of course!

Here at Wood Lane we are all about the timber so we’ve used our expert knowledge to bring you advice on which is the right decking for you to create your ideal patio area! So which is the right style decking for you? It all falls down to the style of your garden, patio doors and of course personal taste.

If you have a narrow, smaller garden then laying decking timber parallel to a wall can make the space feel larger. Alternatively, deck boards placed at right angles to a building can draw the eye into the garden in larger gardens.

Our tantalized softwood decking and pressure treated timber for use in decking has been specifically treated to combat all the things that have been made to destroy a piece of wood such as mould, fungus and insects. This makes it a perfect choice for long lasting decking which will last for many summers to come!

The size of the area you have for your patio will determine how much furniture you will need for your decking area. For a large patio you may want to include a larger garden table and chairs, perfect for any BBQs or a get together you’re planning on having in the warmer months. For a smaller patio setting why not just two or three chairs with a much smaller table and making it cosy with some throws and cushions?

We also provide some accessories to compliment your chosen decking such as railway sleepers and edging boards which are beautiful options following the landscaping of your garden.

As one of the fastest growing timber merchants in the East Midlands, covering everywhere from Nottingham to Leeds, we can advise you on finding the right timber decking for your garden and are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.
