With the right materials, tools and guidance, building garden decking can be a great DIY task. A brand new timber deck makes a great addition to larger gardens, bringing versatility to your space.

At Bradfords, we have plenty of decking materials to choose from such as our Yellow Balau decking. This hardwood timber is one of the most popular choices for decking in UK and is naturally resistant to decay, fungal and insect attacks.

For even more of a helping hand, our Wooden Patio Deck Kit comes with all the timber supplies you’ll need to create a complete corner decking.

Installing fencing in your garden provides extra security and privacy, as well as a feature for showcasing various plants and flowers on a trellis.

There are plenty of wooden fencing options that can be DIY-friendly, including Our Treated Featheredge Fence Panel. We also offer a number of timber supplies to compliment your fence, such as fence posts and post caps, fence capping and treated timber gravel boards which help protect your fence from damage.

Our treated featheredge fence panels are dip treated and can be finished to suit any style garden. Take a look at our advice pages for more information on treating your fence.

Maybe you have your sights set on a romantic summerhouse where you can enjoy the sunshine? Our Blockley Wooden Summerhouse is a traditional style summerhouse, perfect for enjoying the long summer nights. If you’re limited on space, arbour garden seating might do the trick. The Cadiz Arbour loveseat is a perfect fit for two, or you can stretch out with a good summer read. 

Lawn borders and flower beds

A great way to really showcase your plant life and greenery is by creating lawn boarders or raised flower beds. There are numerous timber supplies suitable for use both indoors and out, such as our Treated Sawn Timber blocks.

For a little more character and personality, we recommend using railway sleepers in your garden. For flower beds and borders in particular, reclaimed timber railway sleepers will give your garden a rustic, shabby chic feel.

For a cleaner look, our softwood railway sleepers help you create more modern and traditional structures. These pressure treated timbers are more durable than their reclaimed counterparts. They are also suitable to making simple garden structures like benches or picnic tables.
