Composite Decking vs Wooden Decking

Composite decking is fast becoming a popular staple across the UK, and it’s easy to see why. Sturdy, practical yet beautiful – composite decking seemingly has it all. However, many people still covet traditional wooden boards for their decking. Which is better? Here, we weigh up the pros and cons to help you make your decision.

Wooden Decking

There is no denying real wood decking looks beautiful and it will certainly give you the authentic appearance you want. Certain types of wooden decking will be more durable than others, for example, cedar or redwood. However, wood decking can be a lot of hard work in the long run. It will require maintenance in order to keep it looking good as wood can be susceptible to damage over time.

Composite Decking

Composite decking might not be solid wood, but it can still give you that same natural appearance. When bought from a trustworthy supplier, composite decking will be very well made and can accurately recreate the subtle nuances of real wood. If you want low-maintenance decking the will last, composite decking is the ideal choice. What’s more, it’s much more eco-friendly than real wood.

As you can see, composite decking has all the benefits of wooden decking, and more. For people wanting the appearance of real wood, composite decking can more than deliver. It is the convenient, modern choice for your decking.

There are many different finishes and shades available, from ashy carbonised effect decking to rustic weathered oak boards made from reclaimed timber.

Fresh turf


The biggest problem with turf is managing to transplant it from the field to your garden and keep it in perfect condition.

During the winter months this is easy and the turf will last three or four days no problem at all. However, during late spring and summer the shelf life can be as little as 36 Hours.
