Garden decking ideas and patios
Decking ideas and patios to transform your garden
Explore our beautiful decking ideas and patios to inspire your next garden project. Whether you have a country garden, small garden in town, compact terrace or urban roof space, you'll want to get the most from your garden decking or patio area, so let us help you transform it into a practical and stylish spot for entertaining, dining, or simply relaxing.
You needn't be restricted to the warmer months either, as the right choice of covering will ensure continued usage long after the summer months have passed.
If you're looking to carve out a zone for alfresco dining, a well-designed and covered decking space can offer an all-year-round option, while terracotta tiles can instantly lend a Mediterranean feel. Alternatively, statement outdoor furniture coupled with cushions and throws will make your outdoor area as comfortable, and as personalised as your living room.
When it comes to garden decking there's a wealth of options to suit your lifestyle, budget and taste. You could opt for attractive wood stains, create imaginative patterns or go eco-friendly with plastic and wood waste blends.
Think about the lines of your garden, the space you'll need to make your decking or patio a truly useful addition to your garden and how you're going to lay it - it's possible to do so yourself.
Whatever you choose, don't forget to complete the effect with dramatic lighting touches for the perfect decked garden space.

A combination of painted garden decking, slatted trellising and poured concrete creates an interesting textural effect in this town garden, that is unified by the use of the same pale paint throughout and a table that echoes its surroundings. To replicate the look, be sure to work with a professional designer from the outset.
