Set Up Your Space with Decking

There's nothing quite like a brand new deck to turn your backyard into an outdoor living room or a great party venue. It's an easy and affordable way to extend your living space that will last for years and, with a little know-how, you can build yourself. There are a number of decking material options available. As well as the traditional timber decking of Blackbutt, jarrah, merbau and treated pine, there are environmentally friendly alternative. Composite decking can be made out of recycled plastic, which is long lasting, easy to install and maintain and is rot and termite resistant.

Build it up with Sleepers

You can shape any size backyard and give it a natural, earthy look with treated pine sleepers. Treated pine sleepers are resistant to decay, fungi and termites, making them one of the most versatile, easy-to-use and hard-wearing landscaping materials on the market. They can be used to build a retaining wall, a raised vegie garden, flowerbed or as a border along your garden beds.

Make Space with Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are a great way to create levels of interest in your backyard. You can use them to create a raised garden to surround your entertaining space or make a quiet corner to relax. Retaining walls are also a good way to flatten out areas of a sloping block and add extra space for the kids to play or for you to entertain. Depending on the look you want, retaining walls can be built from logs or treated pine sleepers. You can also use purpose-built materials for retaining walls that are interlocking, long lasting and come in a range of colours.

Add Colour and Texture with Pebbles

Pebbles are an easy way to bring different colours and textures to your backyard. You can use them to fill up empty spaces in your garden beds or as ground cover to compliment a paved or decking area. For a clean, decorative look you can use pebbles to create a border or landscape a path. There are a range of colours and styles to choose from including white, blue, orange, red, green, lime, silver and gold. By using the same colour pebble you can keep it simple or mix the colours to create a more vibrant look.
