Natural Decking Boards: Contemporary Outdoor Flooring Solution

If you’re looking for an outdoor flooring solution for all your alfresco dining, relaxation, and social occasions, a functional yet attractive surface on which to spend precious time in the garden or on your terrace, then the various natural timber and composite decking options can be the right choice for you.

Let’s explore some of the different decking choices available on the market and see how their unique characteristics can provide an easy-to-clean, durable, and visually impressive product.

Composite Decking

Made of wood fibres and recycled plastic, composite decking is relatively robust and designed to be resistant to the varied weather conditions while being incredibly easy to maintain and upkeep. Available in a range of colours and finishes, it is a great solution for people who are looking for a low-maintenance deck. 

Despite latest advancements in production processes, however, and the substantial range of composite decking products on the market, timber remains one of the most popular options when it comes to decking. Timber offers a more natural look and warmth that is difficult to match by plastic or metal alternatives and it is also often the most budget-friendly option.

When it is sourced responsibly, timber is the most sustainable building material and is an ideal choice as people become increasingly concerned about waste and end-of-life recycling for the old deck.

When thinking about decking, many people picture the traditional grooved appearance, but nowadays, timber decking comes in variety of styles and finishes to offer everything from stylish looks to incredible functionality and durability.

Here are some of the options available:

Natural Timber Decking - Linax

Linax timber is another excellent low-maintenance decking choice. Made using a boiled linseed oil process, which is done with colour pigments under a vacuum to reduce moisture, this is a wonderfully stable board with superb resistance to rot.

With a 12-year product warranty and longer maintenance intervals, Linax natural timber decking offers peace of mind when it comes to durability and hard-wearing qualities. To create the natural aesthetic in your garden space, it’s available in brown, grey and natural finishes.
