If you’re currently considering introducing decking to your garden, it’s important to think about a variety of factors and implications before making any final decisions. It’s also handy to see some composite decking ideas in situ, to give you a visual example of what may or may not work in your own garden.

To help you bring your composite decking design ideas to life, we’ve put together this handy guide of things to think about beforehand.

Working with your garden space

The benefits of choosing composite decking are numerous – it’s environmentally friendly, it looks fantastic, and it stands the test of time. But perhaps the main benefit is that it’s versatile and can easily optimise your surroundings, regardless of the space you’ve got to work with. Whether your garden is a quaint and simple space, or a vast botanical wonderland, high-quality composite decking can create a variety of visually striking effects. Look at how others have made their composite decking ideas work well in small and large gardens alike.

Things to consider

Before you commit to composite decking, ask yourself the following questions to try and narrow down your preferences and identify what makes the most sense for your garden.

Where is the summer sun?

Just around the corner, hopefully! Soon you’ll be basking in the glorious summer sunshine (if that’s your thing), possibly while sprawled on a cosy a sun lounger atop your newly built composite decking!
With that in mind, it’s important to consider the trajectory of the sun over your house, and how much sun exposure your garden gets when figuring out where to position your decking.

Is shade important?

If you’re someone who prefers to do their garden-dwelling from the cool sanctuary of the shade, then the same applies. If the sun can be too much for you, consider building your decking in a permanently shaded part of the garden, or in an area that is in shade more often than sun. Having a decking area in the shade is ideal if you plan to spend most of the summer standing over a barbeque, or if you sometimes like to work al-fresco from home.

Will there be any privacy?

Privacy is another important aspect to consider before installing your decking. If you plan to spend a lot of time on your decking, and you’d like that time to be peaceful out of the direct eyeline of your neighbours, then be sure to choose a space in your garden that’s nicely shielded by fences, walls, or rows of hedges.

Are colours and themes key?
