Create a beautiful, decked area in the garden with Shedstore's pressure treated garden decking boards from Forest Garden. With a ridged surface design and a natural timber finish, our FSC®-certified timber boards for sale are available in 2.4m lengths and 120mm widths. Supplied with a fifteen year anti-rot guarantee, these decking boards can be bought in packs of 5, 10, 20 or 50.
Composite decking boards are an entirely man-made building product. They are made from a mixture of wood fibres, plastics, and a smaller amount of bonding agents. This mixture is then heated and formed into lengths of composite decking boards, which are gradually cooled.
The composite decking boards for sale on Shedstore have an amazing 25 year guarantee and are made from recycled high-density polyethylene and beech hardwood fibres. Made from 90%+ recycled materials, these decking boards have the “look and feel” of natural wood at a much lower price.
Available in brown or grey, these decking boards are dual-sided and are virtually maintenance-free. Slip-resistant, they will not flake, split, stain, or warp. Overall, these composite decking boards are a great buy and are highly recommended.
Apart from using it as a decking area, there are many other uses for wooden decking. With varying degrees of carpentry skill, wooden decking could be used to make compost bins, hot tub surrounds, landscaping features, pathways, planters, raised beds, swimming pool surrounds, water feature surrounds and for other purposes too.
Which is better, will largely depend on your priorities, we summarise each below.
Softwood decking is a readily available material, which is cut from coniferous trees (such as pine and spruce). These species are very fast-growing (especially when compared to hardwoods) and are therefore more economical to produce. This results in softwood decking being available at a much lower price. For most homeowners, provided softwood decking is pressure treated it represents great value for money. The pressure treatment process ensures the softwood decking is built to last and is considered "good enough" for use by most homeowners.
Hardwood decking again is readily available and is cut from hardwood trees (such as ash, beech, and oak). These species are much slower growing and as such are more expensive to produce. Therefore, hardwood decking has a higher cost price. Once again, this decking would need pressure treatment. The final hardwood decking is of a generally higher quality than softwood decking but costs much more. The question for most homeowners is, "Should I pay extra for hardwood decking, or will softwood decking be good enough to meet my needs?"
All the garden decking materials for sale at Shedstore are softwood decking, which we believe gives great value for money. Our entire range of FSC®-certified timber is pressure treated and will therefore not require annual retreatment with a top-quality wood preservative.
