Garden Decks – Way To Extend Your Indoor Living Areas

Garden Decks – Way To Extend Your Indoor Living Areas

Decks form an extremely inexpensive way to extend your indoor living space out into the backyard. If you want to spend a perfectly comfortable day sitting outside, or want to entertain your friend’s outdoors, then there is nothing more convenient than the garden deck. Make most of your garden by adding a classic garden deck.

As extensions of indoor living areas, patios and decks form the ideal spot for reading, relaxing or lazing in the warm afternoon sun. This beautiful outdoor experience will urge your family to spend more time outdoors together. Decks are very suitable for kid’s use – especially if balustrades/railings are utilized as part of the scheme. They literally open and extend your home outdoors, providing a wider space for entertaining or dining your friends.

A Natural Alternative To Fencing

A Natural Alternative To Fencing

The idea of using trees and shrubs as enclosures or to mark off space is not a new one. Hedges were used in 16th century Italian gardens to make avenues for travel within the garden, and hedgerows, which are simply lines of bushes or trees of the same species planted close enough for their limbs to intertwine, have been in use in England for more than seven hundred years.

Hedges used as an alternative to fencing fulfill many more purposes than simply serving as a property line. They can keep wind and erosion to a minimum, cut out noise from traffic, and helps keep the neighborhood children from running through your newly laid grass.
