The decking Man, October 5, 2017
Decks are a perfect addition to your natural surroundings. They can be integrated into the existing landscape, or become the foundation for a completely new garden. We’ve seen plants placed on top of, around or even within decking areas to create beautiful yet practical works of art. Plants around your deck also help create privacy, provide natural shading and bring colour to your space.
If you are nature inclined, think about:
Planter boxes: a beautiful and efficient way to house your favourite flowers in an organised manner. It also makes watering and tending to your favourite herbs, vegetables or flowers quicker and easier.
Pot plants: Pot plants give you the versatility of swapping and changing for whatever reason or season. Placement can also create entirely different environments – eg a pot plant on each corner of your deck can create dividers for an outdoor dining area, or a row of grown pot plants can create a lush wall of privacy.
Shrubs and grasses: Placing them around your decking area or letting grass from your backyard extend to the edges helps blend your deck with the outdoors to create a seamless environment.
Nestling: While decks are traditionally found near properties, one of the most beautiful projects we have seen is when Brite Composites are laid down WITHIN an existing garden or landscape and away from walls. Thinking outside the box and finding a space within your garden lets you create a private oasis in your very own backyard.
And remember – Brite composites are made from an extruded blend of wood and polymers, so spillage from watering your plants won’t cause excess warping like traditional timber decks.
