Garden Patio Decking Kits Reviewed

Very adaptable and the ideal answer if your garden is a challenging site, decking never seems to lose its popularity. If, like David Coton, you want decking that comes complete and is easy to install, then a kit is the perfect solution.

Patio Decking Kit

Forest, who are a well established supplier of quality timber products of all kinds, offer three decking kits.

8x8 Decking

With an attractive balustrade, the 8ft x 8ft Patio Decking Kit will form a very useful area for relaxation and entertaining friends. Made from smooth planed softwood timber, assembly is simple following detailed instructions.

As with all Forest kits, posts, rails, fixtures and fittings are all included and, as it's pressure treated and guaranteed for fifteen years, there is no need for the timber to have further treatment. 

8x8 Decking and Pergola

There's another kit of the same size that includes a pergola, again tremendous value for money. The 8ft x 8ft Patio Decking Kit with Pergola adds height and structure, shade will also be advantageous on a hot day. By hanging baskets from the pergola you'll will introduce colour and scent, making this a very pleasurable environment.

16x8 Decking and Pergola

An 16ft x 8ft patio deck with pergola (shown in picture) is an impressive sight that will transform your garden. Again with a balustrade, you can perhaps dine under the pergola before stretching out on a lounger, topping up your tan in the full sun.

Hanging baskets and climbing plants, maybe a beautifully scented rose, can decorate the rafters of this imposing structure while pot plants can be placed around the decking. There's certainly plenty of room to create a wonderfully inviting area to spend your leisure hours.

With the minimum of preparation and following sensible precautions, there is no reason why a decking kit can't be assembled very efficiently even if you have minimal DIY skills. The result will be a good looking, practical, structure that will prove its worth over many years, adding value to your house and garden.
