Gardens Aren’t Just for Summer with Composite Decking

The nights are drawing in, the temperatures are dropping, and the leaves are falling. Yes it’s Autumn but that doesn’t mean your outdoor living spaces need to be forgotten about, or ideas postponed until next year. With its distinctive colours of browns, reds, oranges,and yellows, Autumn is a wonderful time to be outside.  Why not spend more time enjoying it with a composite decking area.

Traditional timber decking requires a lot of preparation for the cooler months in the way of staining, sealing, and other tasks in order to keep it looking great. Composite decking is much easier to maintain. As long as it is cleaned using a good quality deck cleaner and tidy from fallen leaves and twigs, your decking will still look in tip-top shape when Spring comes round again.

If you are thinking of installing a deck or upgrading your existing one, now is the perfect time to do it! Halloween, Bonfire Night, and the Festive Season are just round the corner and decked areas can provide a wonderful gathering place for family and friends. Fairy lights can be twined into nearby trees or railings, and flickering lanterns can provide a cosy and calming atmosphere. Chiminea’s, outdoor stoves, or heaters can create the warmth you need. Outdoor ovens can be used to cook authentic and tasty food for family and friends.  Potted dahlias, crocuses, begonias or cyclamen can add a splash of colour and a pleasant contrast against autumnal colours elsewhere in your garden.

So our advice is don’t let them wintery blues beat you.   Continue using your outdoor spaces, stand or sit out on your deck with family and friends and enjoy the changing seasons for everything they have to offer.
