There are so many possibilities when it comes to making your garden seem like a whole new space in time for the better weather. Don’t limit your imagination – let us work with you to create an incredible outdoor space.

1) Have a world-class deck professionally installed



The difference a well-designed deck can make to your outdoor space is phenomenal. No matter the size or terrain of your garden, decking can really help you make the most out of a space. Whether you’re interested in al fresco dining or simply taking in your slice of the great outdoors, we have the ability to create a bespoke design to turn your garden into a memorable outdoor area.

For uneven gardens decking is the ideal leveller, allowing you to enjoy the space you have. High, off-the-ground decks can also add a whole new level of garden to be explored (as well as creating a wonderful viewing point). We’ll work with you to incorporate exactly what you want into your dream design, whether that’s a specific colour or unusual motif. When it comes to decking, the world really is your oyster! You can view our full range of styles here.

2) Consider the benefits of great outdoor lighting


For the perfect deck, clever lighting must also be considered to ensure you really work your new space to its maximum potential. Aside from the practical element, outdoor lighting creates instant sophistication as well as a cosy glow that will make you want to spend hours in the garden on a summer’s evening. At James Grace Decking we understand the importance of lighting and the difference it can make better than anyone. Take a look here to see the incredible range of lighting we can install into your deck.

3) Use glass to your advantage



When done right, adding glass to your decking space can make a real style statement.  Not only does it have a sleek and modern appearance, due to its nature, it also lets in plenty of natural light. One of our most popular styles is the stainless steel and glass panel combination pictured above. It’s a subtle, ultramodern look that lets in maximum light with minimum blockage to the view in front. To view our full range of balustrades and see what could work best in your space click here.

4) Light up the barbecue


Everyone loves a barbecue. Freshly grilled food, a beautiful summer’s day and great company is an undeniable winning combination.
The atmosphere this simple piece of kit can bring into your outdoor space is quite incredible. Whether it’s a large-scale family gathering or just a more adventurous dinner for two, you’ll find plenty of barbecue options out there to suit your needs. You can even find portable barbecues that can be brought inside during the colder months (ideal for the unpredictable UK weather too!). Above all, a barbecue will let you maximise on all that extra space decking brings to your garden.
And since we are the UK’s only nationwide installer of Trex composite decking with stain-proof properties, you won’t have to worry about the mess either! Find out more about the benefits of our world-class decking here.

5) Purchase some stylish garden furniture

Nothing can make a garden more inviting more quickly than some stylish garden furniture. Whether you want to inject some luxury with large, plush sofa-style loungers or you prefer to keep it simple with a timeless set of bistro-style table and chairs, garden furniture makes your deck truly liveable. However, you may want to consider the best sun or shade spots in your garden before you buy to make sure you get the most out of any purchase.

Summer will be here before we know it, so don’t wait any longer to arrange your free design visit with your local James Grace Decking designer. Your designer will visit at a time that’s convenient for you and will show you just what’s possible in your outdoor space.
