For Your Decking

What’s any back or front yard without somewhere to hang out, have a few drinks and chat with your friends and family? Timber decking makes a great addition to any yard.


A Timber Decking Pathway

This is the perfect idea for those who’ve got big backyards. Use timber decking or flooring to create a winding walkway through your garden. You could even frame it on either side with a fence, to really reinforce that style and class.


Patios or Pergolas

Patios and pergolas are great ideas if you’re into outdoor entertaining. They provide shade, shelter and an awesome space to just hang out. The kids will love them too!


For Fencing

Is your fence in need of an upgrade? Installing some new fencing in your home is a great way to inject some life into your back or front yard. If you get creative with it, you could plant some vines or other clinging plants to create a jungle wonderland theme for your fence.


A Veggie Garden

Do you have a green thumb? Do you like to grow your own fresh produce? We don’t blame you. There’s nothing quite like harvesting your own crop and eating it, fresh out of the ground. Just give it a wash first!

You can use timber to create a little pocket of produce paradise. All you need to do is section off some of your yard using LVL beams. Use the space you’ve created, and get to planting!


Planter Boxes

You don’t have to eat everything you grow in your garden! Maybe you just love the look of freshly blooming flowers, swaying in the breeze. Create a space for your plant friends to grow and flourish using some timber. You could section off many different planter boxes. One idea is to frame your yard using planters. You could have your lawn in the middle, surrounded by flowers and plants.
