There are many ways to better tailor your garden for how you want to use it. And while many will find their thoughts first jump to introducing patios or garden paving as option number one, our landscapers recommend prospective customers around Worthing and Rustington also consider a bespoke decking installation. These are increasingly popular features, with wood and composite decking products available at a range of different price points.
If you’re looking for a quote, or for tailored advice from our time served landscapers, you can call the Salvington Landscapes team on 0759 291 1676. But if you’re still curious about what a decking installation can offer you, we’ve here looked to dive into why it's such an effective home improvement, before exploring the differences between wood and composite decking installation.
First and foremost, a decking installation provides a versatile outdoor space for relaxation, entertainment and connecting with nature. It extends your main living area out into the open air, offering a cosy spot to unwind, host barbecues, or simply enjoy the sunshine.
It’s proven to add value to Worthing and Rustington properties, especially when professionally constructed by our trained landscapers, and creates a focal point that enhances the overall aesthetics of your garden. Many find that wood or composite decking is better suited to nestle into their existing theme than patios and similar paved hard standings made from natural stone, concrete etc.
When it comes to choosing between wood and composite decking, there are several factors to consider. Wood decks have a timeless charm and a natural beauty that can blend seamlessly with the surrounding environment. They offer a warm, inviting feel and can be customised with various stains and finishes. Wood is also relatively affordable and widely available, making it a popular choice amongst our Worthing and Rustington clients.
On the other hand, a composite decking installation is composed of a blend of wood fibres and recycled plastic materials. They have gained popularity in recent years due to their durability, low maintenance requirements, and how eco-friendly their manufacture is. Unlike wood, a composite decking installation is resistant to rot, warping and insect damage. They don't require staining or sealing, and are relatively easy to clean, usually requiring just a simple hose-down now and again. Add to this the fact that composite decking comes in a variety of colours and textures, allowing you to achieve your desired aesthetic without the need for regular refinishing.
Ultimately, the choice between wood and composite decks depends on your personal preferences, budget, and the level of maintenance you're willing to undertake. Both options have their merits, and it's advisable to explore samples, consult with our landscapers, and consider the long-term needs of your Worthing or Rustington property before making a final decision.
