Description

Transforming  your garden and living space isn't as difficult as you may think, in fact with the Forest Patio Deck Kit it is positively easy.

When in place you'll appreciate how useful decking is if you're relaxing or entertaining friends. It's also impressive value for money, especially when considering how much it will add to your outdoor space.

Simple to construct even on an existing patio, there's a pergola to add height, structure and introduce shade. Baskets full of trailing flowers can be hung from the rafters, so on a warm evening the decking will be full of the scent and colour of summer flowers. 

The decking is edged with an attractive balustrade and the excellent softwood is pressure treated.

Looks good

Not as picture top cross pieces are held with brackets and not cutouts. Hand rails not as picture spindles not 45 deg angle at top. Hand rails don’t seem to be pressure treated so I’ve now got to paint with preservative 2 corner posts split but seem ok Apart from above pretty easy to put together but you would need some DIY skills.

Excellent

Absolutely love it! Delivery was quick and hassle free arrived on time and left in a place convenient for me. I had the deck assembled by a professional joiner who thought it went together well. Only niggle is the balustrade supplied was not as in the picture, pictured with a 45 degree mitre on top to connect to board but my joiner fitted it slightly differently which ended up looking fab! I think if an average jo were to fit it they would struggle, it doesnt have predrilled screw holes so required extra long drill bit.

8' x 8' patio deck kit including pergola

Now it's up it looks very nice. However when it arrived I received two sets of instructions - one for the patio deck kit and the other for the ultima deck kit, so my advice to anyone contemplating buying this product is check both the part and product codes very carefully, as although the instructions for the latter do actually show a picture of what I had ordered, the instructions were for the ultima deck kit and although the parts appeared to be the same, it weren't until I went back onto the internet that I realised that two of the parts had different codes.

Pergola and decking kit

Delivery drivers were reluctant to put items in back garden but did so in the end. No instructions or fittings were left , after four separate phone conversations I was eventually left the right amount of screws and bolts. Overall I was pleased with the product.

Pergola and decking kit

Delivery personnel could have been a little more helpful as to putting a few of the heavier items inside my gate as I was on my own carrying them. The item is very nice but a little expensive, all in all not to bad and would order other products.

mrs Angeli Asked:

Can this decking and pergola be put straight onto grass or does it need a more solid base?

We Replied:

Dear Mrs Angeli Thank you for your question. It does need a flat, level surface. You can put it onto grass or soil, however we would advise locating the beams onto slabs or bricks or compacted gravel as over time without this the decking would sink into the ground. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Marsha

Brian Norman Asked:

The patio deck with pergola has a 8' x 8' deck with a 10' x 10' pergola, why a 2'gap between the two?

We Replied:

Dear Brian Thank you for your question. The pergola overhangs the decking, hence the difference in the dimensions. If you click on the black and white image showing the dimensions you will see what I mean. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Marsha

Ryszard Filipiak Asked:

Can the rails be placed along any side of the pergola and deck?

We Replied:

Dear Ryszard Thank you for your question. Yes, the rails can go either side. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Zach Nicholson

Ryszard Filipiak Asked:

Can the decking be built directly on soil? Or would some brick supports concreted into the ground be better to provide a small gap between the deck and the soil? Or do you have another suggestion?

We Replied:

Dear Ryszard Thank you for your question. Ideally do not locate the decking on soil as it could sink over time. The bearers should be on a hard standing surface such as compacted aggregate, mortared slabs or bricks. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

Robert Fairfax Asked:

What sort of base would this need to be placed on and what size joists do I need?

We Replied:

Dear Robert Thank you for your question. We would recommend placing this item on a flat, concrete, slab or hard-standing base. The joists for this item come included and are placed under the base to prevent it from warping. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

David Asked:

Would this decking be able to support the weight of a hot tub?

We Replied:

Dear David Thank you for your question. As this deck kit uses 19mm thick boards, and as long as the Hot Tub is positioned central over the frame supports underneath, then they are capable of holding a standard hot tub. If it's a heavy hot tub (wooden framed for example) then we would advise placing some extra planks of wood inside the base in between the standard support beams, just to help distribute the weight of the boards and hot tub on top. You would also need to ensure that you have a flat, level and hardstanding area to install the deck kit onto. As if installed over grass or soil which is prone to getting water clogged, then the structure could sink over time. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Andy

bill Asked:

Is there any chance the pergola might blow over in strong winds?

We Replied:

Dear Bill Thank you for your question. Due to the pergola's weight, we would say that it is very unlikely that it will blow over. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren

Stuart Morley Asked:

What are the sizes of the four uprights and the cross beams? Is the decking supported underneath by cross beams? What gap is required between each deck board to stop buckling or warping?

We Replied:

Dear Stuart Thank you for your question. Each upright is 2400mm long with a cross-section of 95mm x 95mm. The five rafters are 3050mm long with a cross-section of 95mm (deep) x 47.5mm (thick). The decking is assembled onto a base made up of deckboards, spaced 446mm apart (see assembly process in attached instructions). Again, referring to the instructions the perimeter of the base is made up from four deckboards so of the width of the base across which the deckboards are laid is 2400mm plus the 28mm thickness of one of the deckboards. The 20 deckboards that are laid on the base are 120mm wide so total width is 120 x 20 = 2400mm. That gives a spare 28mm across the 20 boards for expansion. When the boards are laid out it is best to lay them all first before fixing them with screws so that this 28mm spacing can be used evenly across the boards.
