As the holiday season approaches, it’s the perfect time to spruce up your outdoor living space and get it ready for entertaining guests, relaxing with family, and enjoying the beautiful weather.
An easy and cost-effective way to transform your outdoor space and elevate your life outdoors is to install a timber deck. Not only does it look stunning, but it also increases your home’s value and provides a durable and long-lasting oasis for entertaining all year round.
In this blog post, we’ll provide you with five easy steps to get your outdoor space ready for the holiday season with timber decking.
Plan Your Design
The first thing you need to do is get some ideas of how a timber deck would work in your home. You should consider how you use your spaces and how you like to entertain. The team at Life Outdoors would love to help you create a design that will fit perfectly with your outdoor space and complement the style of your home. We can create a 3D rendering of your design, so you can see exactly what your deck will look like before we start construction.
Choose Your Timber
Once you have your design in mind, it’s time to choose the right material for your deck. The most popular choices we're finding at the moment are Merbau hardwood timber or eco-friendly composite decking products.
Each type of timber has its unique characteristics, so we’ll help you choose the one that is best suited to your project based on your budget, the area where the deck is being built and the style of your home. Our team will also provide you with advice on how to maintain your timber decking to ensure it stays in top condition for years to come.
Prepare Your Site
Before we start construction, we can work with you to prepare your site by removing any old decking, levelling the ground, and ensuring the area is suitably drained. This will ensure your new deck is stable and long-lasting. If you require council approval, we can work with you to ensure any necessary permits are obtained before we begin.
Build Your Deck
Now it’s time to make the magic happen! Our team of experts (no subcontractors!) will use their expertise and quality materials to construct your deck, ensuring it meets all Australian standards and can withstand anything Mother Nature throws at it for years to come.
Enjoy Your New Outdoor Living Space
Once your timber deck is complete, it’s time to enjoy your new outdoor living space with family and friends. You can personalise your outdoor entertaining area by adding some furniture, planters, and that all-important mood lighting. With proper maintenance, your new timber deck will continue to enhance your outdoor lifestyle for many years to come.
