Garden Decking Railings


Break up the decking from the garden and add railings to the design. The railings will help to keep people off the grass and kids where you can see them. Give it a delicate touch with spindle railings to contrast nicely with the wooden decking panels. See Metal Decking Spindle Railmetal decking spindle rail


5 Garden Edging Ideas

Garden edging can help to spruce up your garden and give it an all year round neat look. Garden edging can be made from almost any materials, with the most common being concrete, brick or stone, however why not be more adventurous with your garden edging ideas and go for something a little more unusual. We have 5 garden edging ideas which will help you to make more of your garden design.

Cobbled Paving Garden Edging

Paving doesn’t just have to be lying flat on the garden path. Why not use a cobbled paving to neaten up the edging around your flower beds or lawn.

Border Pebble Strip Garden Edging

If you have the space for something flat and wide in your garden edging then why not go for a flat pebble style edging. This is perfect for around flower beds, around ponds and water features and around a patio edging to give it an extra feature. What we love about these is that if you have any left over you can use it for the bathroom – perfect combined with that rain shower you have always wanted!

Bamboo Garden Edging

Bamboo garden edging looks fantastic, is long lasting and keeps the garden looking light. Perfect if you are going for a slightly oriental look in your garden. Looks great around taller beds. Make sure you get one that is taller than you need so that you can place a good proportion of the edging in to the ground. Take a look at the life expectancy on any you buy and aim for something that has around ten years.
