R & C Landscapes Ltd are experienced in the design and construction of both softwood and hardwood decking areas. We can design decking for small terraces, courtyards and roof gardens, as well as more expansive designs for larger gardens. We can also offer a maintenance service for your deck once complete to ensure it stays in tip top condition. This may include jet washing, painting, and the application of a preservative coating.
We recommend you consider the following points when choosing a decked area:-
It’s Location– Sunny open site or shady spot?
It’s use – Entertaining, relaxing, dining or a play space for the children.
Its durability – Modern preservative treatments mean that timber, if maintained, should be structurally sound for around 25 years. It will need regular brushing and periodic cleaning with a pressure spray to remove any slippery surface growths. It will also need a regular preservative coating finish re-applied at least annually checking an product is used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.. Your deck will weather with intermittent wetting and drying – this is normal and will have no structural effect.
Its features – Personalise your deck to practically any colour you like – from natural wood to bright, bold shades. Add additional design features – balustrades, pergolas, trellises, steps etc. Consider a split level deck even. Lighting built into your deck will also look stunning during the Summer evenings – we can incorporate this for you!
Remember we can also incorporate storage boxes, planters and seating/benches to complement your decked area.
