Can you use Composite Decking in a Small Garden?
If you have a small garden you might be wondering if it’s possible for you to use composite decking. After all, some decks are quite large and they could be too big for your garden. But can you have a smaller deck in your garden? Yes, you can.
Even though your garden might only be a small one, there is always space for composite decking.
Below you will find a few ideas for using composite decking in a small garden:
A Place to Sit
Perhaps there’s an area in your garden where you like to sit. Adding a bit of decking to this area will ensure you won’t have to sit on wet grass. Composite decking can also make that area of your garden look good even if it isn’t very big.
You can place your table and chairs on the deck and have a little room to move around. You don’t need a lot of space to hold a small table and a few chairs. You might also want to have a little place to put some potted plants. Again, you don’t need a lot of space, the only limits are your imagination.
A Place to Store Items
Do you have a little storage box that’s surrounded by grass? Why not sit it on composite decking? Doing so will ensure the surrounding grass doesn’t become muddy. Plus, you’ll have a more stable surface to use. Your grass does not have to suffer just because you have a small garden. Keep it looking good by using composite decking.
A good alternative to patios, ground-level decking can look good. It’s easier to keep clean than patios and it’s available in a range of colours. This means you won’t have to put up with a patio that looks dull and grey, you have a range of choices. In addition to this, you can also choose the pattern of your ground-level decking. The decks don’t have to run in a straight line, they can run diagonally if you want to add a bit of texture.
Many small gardens already have patios so why not consider replacing yours with something much nicer? You could potentially cover the whole of your garden should you wish to.
Ground-Level decking is ideal for your shed as it provides a stable surface and it can support the weight of your shed. Your small garden can look modern and clean when you use composite decking.
When it comes to multi-level decking, if you have a small garden you’ll need to be wise. Having too many levels can make walking in your garden hard. Consider how much room you need to move around your garden. Think about what you want to use the multi-levels for.
Perhaps you plan to sit your BBQ on the decking at the top of a few steps. The area surrounding the BBQ could be ground level. In the corner of your garden you could have a few steps up to your shed. Just make sure you have plenty of room to walk from your BBQ to your shed and the rest of your garden. Having to walk up and down steps all the time won’t be much fun.
Raised decking can be used by your back door so you have something nice to stand on when you enter the garden. It can be a nice area to place some potted plants and sit out when the sun’s shining.
Raised decking can help to make a small garden seem even bigger. It will give you more height and a larger area to use. This is especially the case if there are a few levels adding to your raised decking.
As you can see, you can use composite decking in a small garden. Just make sure you have enough space to walk around your garden and do what you love to do. Enjoy barbecues, have somewhere stable to place a shed or storage box. Build somewhere nice to sit out and enjoy the sun. It doesn’t matter if your garden is small you can use composite decking should you wish to.FOLLOW US
