Our team installed a raised timber decking under a client’s new sun canopy

This beautiful garden in Oxford was the perfect setting to embark on our most recent decking project. The homeowners had just installed a large sun canopy at the rear of the property, leaving plenty of space underneath for decking. For the cherry on the cake, they also wanted a raised flower bed to be incorporated into the decking area.

Our installation team began by wrapping rugs around the canopy posts to guard against any damage. We then laid an extensive series of decking joists to provide a solid frame for the main decking surface. The homeowners had chosen softwood treated decking with a classic grooved finish; we laid 26 square metres of it across the entire length of the decking. Lastly, we formed a raised flower bed at one end of the decking, filled with AWBS topsoil.

Now the homeowners have a magnificent space under the canopy to spend many happy afternoons relaxing in the garden. There’s now plenty of scope for outdoor dining, as well as a catering area for BBQs and summer parties. We look forward to the invite!
