When it comes to decking wood, timber decking boards are a prime choice because they are durable, robust, and tactile. Not only can they withstand a lot of foot traffic but they also achieve a timeless aesthetic that will never go out of style; their inherent warmth can easily complement any outdoor space.

Each softwood timber decking board we stock is meticulously milled to a classic profile and undergoes an extensive pressure-treating process to enhance durability and longevity. This treatment provides robust protection against decay, pests, and adverse weather conditions, ensuring that the decking maintains its integrity and appearance over time.
