Decking vs Patio

Decking or Patio Great Dunmow?

You have identified an area in your garden in Great Dunmow that's the perfect position for relaxing outdoors, and you intend to install a patio or deck. But, how should you choose which is the better option?

If the initial outlay is the primary concern, then decking gets the vote. If you look at the material and installation costs for decking over a patio of a comparable size, decking is much cheaper. Over time maintenance costs can be more expensive for wooden decking, however much of this can be avoided by using composite, rot-proof materials. Of course there is invariably some routine yearly maintenance to do, but this is true for patios as well.

If you want it to be a more durable and hard-wearing area, that's where a patio comes out on top. These hard surfaces will last a lifetime, and even if a stone breaks or cracks, it's not going to affect the overall structure and can very easily be replaced. A damaged deck plank can be dangerous and will need immediate replacement, which may not match the weathered deck planks already in position. Both decking and patios are ideal alternatives which will provide an area of outdoor space for the whole family to enjoy and take pleasure in. Therefore, if you were wondering about which is better for you - deck or patio - we hope this short article has helped you.

If you're in need of a more cost effective solution for your precious garden space in Great Dunmow, then artificial grass might be just the alternative for you. A lot of concrete and stone can look very dull your garden, the natural green colour of artificial grass is more soothing and easy on the eye.
