In recent years, the popularity of decking has
sky-rocketed in the UK – and it’s not hard to see why! Even if hot days may be few and far between, we still all like to spend time in the great outdoors and a decked area can really enhance your own
garden space, no matter how big or small. We here at AGJ wanted to share some of our top benefits of having a decked area with you.
your Living Space
Think of your decking as an extra room added on
to your house, because it is! You can put out furniture to relax on, have areas for the kids to play and even outdoor cooking facilities, turning this into a multi-purpose living space.
On a lovely summer evening, being able to sit
outside with your friends and family is a perfect way to end the day. Have a decked space allows for you all to relax outdoors without the hassle of muddy grass and camping chairs. You’ll have real
furniture to sit on and a real floor underfoot – luxury!

confident in our decking’s durability.
Talking of looking after your decking, it
doesn’t take much. It’s a good idea to use a suitable deck coating and stain to keep the wood looking fresh. Other than that, give it a regular brush and then clean with a suitable decking cleaner
every now and again and you’ll be good to go!
Of course, this depends on the materials you
