Garden Decking Ideas

Classic al fresco dining
For a classic look, surround decking with raised beds to create an al fresco dining area — wooden boards are a more garden-friendly option than stone or concrete because they allow water to run through to the soil. Emphasise the length of your garden with narrow boards running end to end.

Soften the hard edges of your decking with an abundance of pretty flowers and herbs that creep right up to the door. Floating steps made out of the same material create continuity between the two levels and add a note of fun by bridging the water feature below.

Painted decking
Use your decking as way of introducing another colour element into your garden scheme. There are plenty of products that can be used to stain wood, such as Ultra Tough Decking Stain from Cuprinol, shown here. Think about how the colour you choose will work with the rest of your garden — here, the stain is echoed in the fencing, wall and furniture, to tie the whole look together.

Deck planning and design
Make a visual feature out of decking as well as a practical one and mix boards of varying widths and styles to create a unique design. Learn how to install your own at one of B&Q’s DIY classes; you can gain hands-on practice together with advice on planning and design.

Decking tiles
Add interest to a decked area by replacing classic wooden boards with attractive tiles such as these bamboo ones, which give the impression of a blanket spread next to the greenery. Planting begins right next to the edge of the decking to create a relaxed, open look.

Professional decking design
A combination of painted decking, slatted trellising and poured concrete creates an interesting textural effect in this town garden, that is unified by the use of the same pale paint throughout and a table that echoes its surroundings. To replicate the look, be sure to work with a professional designer from the outset.

Freestanding deck
Decking does not necessarily have to be attached to the house. Buy a freestanding kit such as this one, and create a secluded, multi-functional area at the bottom of your garden. The inclusion of a pergola will give your garden structure and another focal point, while providing practical support for climbing plants and an attractive canopy to sit under when the plants are in flower.

Borgo La Stella by Victoria Maria Interior Design:
The house is called Borgo la Stella, it’s has successively been a postal relay, a monastery, a bed & breakfast and finally was bought by the actual owners to make it a family house.
Through the years the La Stella has been renovated in a quite contemporary way, which, at a first glance, does not fit the style of the house, but which makes it somehow interesting…
The owners, wanted it to be classical and antique, whereas I had this deep feeling that the house needed something more. Something else, than what you would it expect to be!
My biggest fear was to fall in the trap of “country-side cosyness”, with rattan furniture and red Vichy napkins! Not that I don’t like it, but the spirit of the house wasn’t that. So, the tricky part of the work was to conciliate the classical views of the owners and my more avant-garde desires.
The result is very interesting because it confirms that total look is not necessary (and not nice), and that, if done wisely, style and time mixing can be very pretty and timeless!!
In the living room, we have a antique desk, contemporary art, a vintage suitcase, Italian design sofa’s, Indian fabrics, bright colors and Swedish design chairs, all living together.
