Applying deck stain with a brush

Perhaps the best thing about composite decking boards is the fact that they require virtually zero maintenance. Unlike traditional hardwood deck boards, our composite decking products never have to be stained or painted.


Today is the first day of spring and while, for many of us, the following weeks will see the children at home and normal life at a standstill, you can still take advantage of the great outdoors to keep your children entertained.

With lighter evenings on the horizon and temperatures starting to creep up, you should use this time with your children to explore lots of games and activities in the garden. We've put together a list of our favourite garden activities for children to inspire you to keep things interesting at this challenging time.


Did you see our FutureDek EasyClean Silver Birch composite decking in last night’s episode of Love Your Garden? You can learn all about Kirsty, her remarkable story and the difference that her brand-new garden and decking will make here.

Kirsty’s Story

This Love Your Garden project was in aid of Kirsty and her twins Phoebe and Sam who tragically lost their husband/father Kevin after he suffered a brain aneurysm on New Year’s Day. Kirsty made the brave decision to have Kevin’s organs donated to others in need, and finds comfort in the fact that Kevin has helped save the lives of countless other people.


Incorporating a built-in planter into your garden deck design is the perfect final touch, and when filled with plants, a planter can provide a boost of colour in the spring and summer months.

With warmer weather just around the corner, you may be looking for a unique way to spruce up your outdoor space. Adding planters to your deck adds an extra dimension to your garden's architecture - if you're already thinking of re-doing your decking for the summer, why not add deck planters for a dramatic way of making the most of your garden?
