Timber Decking in Leicestershire

We travel across Leicestershire and the Midlands, fitting timber decking and giving a new lease of life to gardens. Essentially, timber decking is a type of outdoor flooring that is usually raised off the ground and provides an alternative to concrete or grass. 

Timber Decking and Garden Structures

Whether for domestic or commercial properties, wooden decking is an attractive way of opening up your garden for yourself and visitors, whilst protecting your lawn and flower beds. Many people choose to use the decking as a seating area with tables and chairs, as well as decorating it with plant pots and other ornaments. Timber decking can also be used to surround garden ponds and swimming pools. 

Whatever you want to use your timber decking for, we can turn it into a reality so contact us today for a free quote. 

Garden Structures in Leicestershire

There are a host of different garden structures that we can provide in Leicestershire and beyond. Here are some examples.


Arbours feature an area for seating beneath an arch. They provide a separate space away from the main part of the garden and you can even add climbing plants to offer more seclusion. 


A gazebo is a covered area that makes a perfect place to enjoy the garden, even if the weather isn’t particularly good. Some of the sides are open and some are latticed. You can either create built-in seating or move your current patio furniture underneath. 


A pavillion is like a gazebo, but without the walls. This garden structure makes a great, airy space for entertaining, eating outside in summer and as a shaded retreat when you need to cool down from being out in the sun. 


A pergola roofs a walkway or larger area. It doesn’t offer protection from the elements, but rather features slat that lay across the top at intervals. Many people allow these to become covered in climbing plants that help section it off from the rest of the garden. 

Wooden Arch

A wooden arch in your garden often separates two different areas of the space. They break up the open nature of the garden and you can decorate them with plants that grow up into an arch shape on the trellis or lattice structure.

Summer House | Leicestershire

10 Completely Different Uses for a Summer House in Leicestershire

As people look to make more of their properties instead of moving to a new home, the idea of building a summer house in their garden is becoming more popular. Summer houses add that extra space you might crave, but also have a wide range of potential uses. From the sensible to the sensational, whatever reason you have for building a summer house in Leicestershire, we can turn it into a reality. 

To help kickstart your imagination, here are some ideas. You might fancy one of these ten uses for summer houses, or you might have another to add to the mix. The beauty of this additional room for your property is that it is so versatile! 

The Ideal Party Venue

The problem with hosting a party in your main house is that you then have to tidy up afterwards so it can function as a family home again. With a summer house, you can shut the door on the chaos until you feel up to sorting it out. 

It separates your potentially raucous guests from your valuable and delicate items, meaning you don’t have to worry about anyone breaking something of sentimental or monetary value. Simply make sure you keep those items away from your summerhouse. 

Garden parties are great fun, but we don’t always have the best weather round here. With this in mind, a summer house in Leicestershire is the perfect halfway house. You get access to the garden, but with a great place to shelter that still offers glorious views. Even through the pouring rain! 

Summer House | Leicestershire

A Peaceful Home Office

More and more people are cutting out the commute to cities like Leicester and opting to work from home. The problem with trying to complete your daily tasks from the kitchen table is that there are too many distractions. 

Situating your home office in the summer house gives you that separation from the kids, the other half, the postman and everyone else, but you can still nip back in for a cup of tea at any time. Swapping 45 minutes in a car for a ten second dash across the garden is a much more pleasant commute too. 

A Fantastic Place to Relax

The idea of lazing on the veranda at night is idyllic if you live in the south of France or Barbados. However, Leicestershire evenings can turn a little chilly, even in summer. Having a summer house in your garden means that you can fill it with comfy chairs and tall windows through which you can gaze up at the stars, but you can also whack up the heating to make it feel more comfortable. 

It could be a place you go to get away from the hubbub of the home, the blare of the telly or the washing-up. A place to enjoy a glass of wine in quiet contemplation. 

The Ultimate Games Room

Have you ever dreamt of owning your own full-size snooker table, a pinball machine or a host of arcade games? They might be too bulky or too noisy to live in your house, but a summer house gives them a special home. 

What could be better than heading off after a busy day at work to help Pac Man find some edible ghosts or to work on achieving that 147 break?  

Relax in a Sauna

The closest you might currently come to the Swedish lifestyle if you reside in the Midlands is taking a trip down to IKEA in Coventry. However, with a summer house at your Leicestershire home, you could install a sauna to help you relax and unwind like a true Swede. 

Nothing would melt those workday stresses away on a Friday evening like the relaxing heat of your very own sauna in your back garden. There’s no need to visit fancy spas for your treatments, you can build your own. Why not add in a hot tub or plunge pool too? 

Build a Gardening Hub

If you love pottering in the garden, your summer house could become the hub of your green-fingered activity. It would provide secure storage for your tools and other implements, a place for you to wash your hands when you’ve been digging about and your go-to destination for a cup of tea to help you refuel for the next tasks. 

In addition, you could add in some recliners so you can rest, recuperate and take in the fruits of your labours. 

You could keep your gardening boots in the summer house and change back into your normal footwear before you head back to home, making sure your house doesn’t end up full of muddy footprints. 

The Artist’s Creative Studio

Do you love to paint, model or photograph things? All of these artistic hobbies require a good deal of equipment that might not fit into any of your current rooms. A summer house would make an excellent artist’s studio, with plenty of space for paints, materials and even a room for developing prints. 

You might even draw inspiration from the views onto your garden, which could then feature in your work. 

Simply Use it For Extra Storage

There must be a scientific rule that states that a family must have more stuff than easily fits in the available space. It always happens. This is why a summer house is an ideal solution. It provides another room, into which you can move those items that no longer fit in the house. 

It is secure, waterproof, looks much nicer than a large crate in your garden that you might otherwise use, and is more convenient than putting items into paid storage elsewhere. Plus, you can section the summer house so that there is still plenty of room available for another use. 

A Workshop Away From the Home

Do you work with machinery for a job or even as a hobby? You might tinker with engines, create items from wood or indulge in metal work. Whatever you do, the summer house is a great place to launch into your work without fear of causing too much noise or dust in the family home

A Retreat For or From the Kids

If you have teenage children, you know that there are times when everybody needs a little space from each other. That might not always be possible in your family home, but a summer house can help. It can be a retreat away from the rest of the family to allow people to cool off, or simply as a place to watch a TV show that no one else enjoys!
