There's nothing quite like the natural look and feel of wood whether in the garden as decking or a fence, or in the home as a door, floor or window. Find out more below about the various fantastic uses of wood; in and out of the home.
Our gardens are not just places to grow flowers and vegetables. They are where we relax, where we entertain, where we express our personality. So it's hardly surprising that more and more people are creating living spaces in their gardens. Where once we made do with some fencing and a shed, we now indulge in decking and pergolas, garden rooms and dovecots, conservatories and gazebos, stables and log cabins.
For all these structures, wood is naturally at home in your garden. It's environmentally friendly, and won't look out of place.
But using wood outdoors means you need to make sure your structure has been made from a softwood that has been treated properly. Visit the Wood Protection Association website for all you need to know about treating timber, or you can use a naturally durable hardwood.

Decking - Decking is increasingly popular in the garden. Click here to learn more about what to look for, or visit the Timber Decking Association website.
Conservatories - A timber conservatory can both look better and be more environmentally friendly than plastic or aluminium. High quality manufactured windows, doors and patio frames are commonly used in the assembly of conservatories, with planed treated joinery sections allowing windows to be fitted together to form continuous glazed sections. Ready-made components are also available for assembly into conservatories.
