Preparing for Spring

Getting your garden ready for spring is an activity that we always recommend you start early. Honestly, you'll blink and we'll be in April! So, how's your garden looking right now? Is it in need of a bit of TLC? We can help.

Major Renovations 

Holding off until the weather gets a bit warmer makes sense if you're talking about hosting a BBQ or getting out the paddling pool. However, if you want to get any major renovations underway, now's the time to make a start.

Whether you want to add a stylish new sunroom to your garden or replace the old wooden deck, you need to allow enough time for the work to be completed if you're planning to enjoy the fruits of your labour in only a couple months' time. 

If you've decided it's time to ditch the old deck and get a new one installed in time for spring - you've come to the right place. We offer a huge selection of composite deck boards that will look great in your outdoor space. Our decking oozes charm and looks just like real wood - but will require a tiny fraction of the maintenance.

This makes us the perfect choice if you want to enjoy your garden throughout spring, into summer and beyond without having to worry about crazy amounts of upkeep!

Why not order a selection of composite decking samples to see which style suits your aesthetic most? You can choose two different shades or ranges and have your samples delivered straight to your door.

Cleaning Your Decking

If you're lucky enough to have a DeckPlus deck installed in your garden already, then now's the time to turn your attention to the cleaning. Don't worry, as we've mentioned, DeckPlus composite decking is incredibly low-maintenance, so this portion of the spring-time preparations shouldn't take too long! 

We recommend giving your deck a sweep to remove and dried-on dirt that may have accumulated during winter. You could even get the power washer out if there's really stubborn dirt - and that's it. You don't need to sand stain or seal composite decking, so once it's had a quick clean, you're good to go. 


Composite Decking Bench

New Accessories

If you want to give your garden a refreshing new look, you can do so with a selection of garden accessories. Whether you pull some old ones out of the shed and spruce them up or you invest in a completely new garden furniture set, a new touch of colour and texture is sure to liven up your garden for spring. You could even use some composite deck boards to fashion yourself a new garden bench (like the one shown above)! A few other accessories you could include in your spring re-vamp are:

  • A garden table
  • A new BBQ (great for parties!)
  • An umbrella (for shade and shelter)
  • Decorative lights
  • An outdoor heater

Variety of Flowers

Beautiful Blossoms

Nothing says spring quite like a selection of flourishing flowers. Start choosing some seeds because peak planting season starts next month! If you want some well-established planters around your garden, you need to put the work in early on in the year (don't worry your labour will be rewarded). If you're looking for varieties of flowers that are truly breathtaking, why not give sunflowers, sweetpeas or marigolds a try? These brightly coloured blossoms are sure to complement the woody tones of our composite decking perfectly!

We can guarantee you'll find a decked area the perfect place to relax this spring. You can browse all of our ranges by simply clicking the button below:
