Everyone has that one home improvement project that they’ve been putting off. From that big bathroom refit to installing double glazing, there’s always something that just seems like it’s going to be too much of a hassle to take on right now. Well, the spring is in full swing and summer is on the way, and if putting in a garden deck is the one thing on your home improvement list that you just haven’t found time for yet, we’re here to tell you that there is no time like the present.
Unlike those big interior renovations, a garden deck can be a quick easy install and with the right supplier, you could be out in the fresh air enjoying it in no time. Here are three reasons why now is a great time to commit.
A Deck Is A Great Versatile Space To Socialise
Let’s start with an obvious one right off the bat: there’s nothing like a deck when it comes to a beautiful outdoor space for you to spend time together with your friends and loved ones. As we look ahead to brighter days in 2021 and an end to lockdown restrictions as vaccinations continue to roll out, we are going to want to be able to welcome people into our home to enjoy some time together.
A garden deck gives you the space to do that, and whether it’s putting out some sun loungers, getting the barbeque out or just getting everyone around a dinner table in the evening, it’s practical and comfortable for finally seeing those special people in person again.
A Deck Is Easy To Maintain
If you’re thinking that a garden deck is going to be just another thing in your home that you’re constantly going to have to be looking after, you would be wrong. Composite decking materials are not only environmentally responsible (they’re partly made from recycled materials), but they are weather-proof and hold up to punishment a lot better than traditional wood decking.
Composite decking is the perfect choice if you know that your friends and family are going to be out there a lot (plus we all know how unpredictable the summer weather can be!). UK decking suppliers Ecoscape have broken down the composite versus timber comparison and we think you’ll agree that composite is the future.

A Deck Adds Value To Your Home
Now, most people don’t do home improvement jobs because they’re thinking of moving, but it’s worth bearing in mind that a beautiful garden deck is one of those things that will catch people’s eye should you decide to sell. We have all spent a lot of time sitting inside our homes over the past twelve months so it’s only natural that a lot of us are starting to get itchy feet and are looking for somewhere new.
Putting in a garden deck now will not only help you to enjoy the summer in style and comfort, but it will also be a big boost later on if you decide that you need a fresh start.
