Garden Decking Installation London
Enjoying Family Gatherings On Your Deck
Acacia Gardens is a premium garden decking installation company operating throughout North London, North East London, North West London, West London, Central London, Greater London and Hertfordshire. We can install the material you choose, whether hardwood decking, softwood decking, Millboard or composite decking. Garden decking is often one of the features proposed in our complete garden design and build service. If you are interested in this as a stand-alone project, it is subject to the scope of work and our availability. Our garden designers are available to ensure your decking project is a success.
Quality Garden Deck Options
Various decking options, including wood type, colour, shape and style, are available. We can guide you from design and installation to maintenance and aftercare. It’s crucial to determine the primary use of your decking, whether it’s for alfresco dining (requiring easy kitchen access), relaxation and sunbathing (needing optimal sunlight and possible shade options), or a children’s play area (emphasising safety with non-slip surfaces and railings). These considerations, like maintenance and drainage, are essential when choosing decking materials and designs to enjoy your space year-round.
Choosing The Right Garden Decking Materials
Decked areas are commonly constructed from wood, with hardwood decking being a pricier yet durable and aesthetically pleasing option. In contrast, softwood decking is more affordable but requires more maintenance and a shorter lifespan. We recommend using FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) wood that adheres to top environmental and social standards. Alternatives to timber include Millboard decking, which mimics the appearance of wood but offers ease of maintenance and longevity. Composite decking is a durable mix of wood shavings and plastic. Our team can provide samples and guide you through selecting the best option for your needs.
