An outdoor deck is easily one of the best ‘wow’ factors you can add to your garden. It’s a luxurious upgrade to a lawn, especially if you loathe mowing grass. If you have a large area to work with, you can use a deck as an extension of your home, creating an entertainment space for summer (and winter if you add heaters!). However, the idea of building one yourself can be more than a little intimidating if you’re not experienced in DIY.
We wanted to offer you a fix for that.
We offer decking kits in all shapes and sizes that make it incredibly simple to build your own deck. If you can deal with flat-pack furniture, you can probably handle a decking kit.
What’s more is, they’re affordable and building it yourself will save you a considerable amount in labour costs. Did you know you can get decking kits for less than £100 at eDecks?
You can even get a decking kit cut to size, so don’t worry about a premade product not fitting well.
With all that in mind, here’s a blog to showcase the different types of decking kits you can choose from for your garden this summer!
Cut to size and easy decking kits
The easiest kits to build are the no-frills, standard decking kits. You can have these cut to size to fit your space perfectly. They come in several different colours, designs and materials – from composite decking to anti-slip, hardwood and softwood, you’re bound to find one that suits your taste.
These are your basic deck coverings and can be built on both pavement or flat ground.

Decking kits with handrails
If your garden is on an incline or you prefer the look, getting a decking kit doesn’t mean compromising on getting handrails. Your decking kit won’t limit you to what you can add to it. Just like a professionally built deck, you can add any handrail system you choose to any of our decking kits. Glass, metal, wood or rope – any will fit onto your new decking kit!
What’s more, you can even buy some of our decking kits complete with premeasured handrails. Here are our decking kits with rope handrails, starting from just under £300.
Decking kits with pergolas
If you fancy something more elaborate than a simple deck floor, a decking kit may still be a good option. Pergolas and handrails can make your new deck look outstanding, whether you want to create a small, serene place for vining flowers to cover, or full outdoor entertainment space with space to hang lighting and heat lamps.
We have over THIRTY different decking kits with pergolas that come with many different combinations of pergola sizes and handrail style and placement. We particularly like “The Queen Anne”, a standalone deck with stairs and handrails that can add some serious wow factor to any garden.
And all in one ready-to-build kit!
Remember, if there’s a combination you have your heart set on that you don’t see on our site, get in touch and we will try our best to help you get the deck you’re looking for!
Composite decking kits
Just because you want the very best composite for your decking, doesn’t mean you can’t build it yourself. Composite is a great decking material, offering longevity and very low maintenance and is pretty easy to work with too.
You can check out our composite decking kits right here.
[Pro tip: If you do want to take the plunge and build your composite deck from scratch, we also have a handy guide on how to figure out the components you’ll need for your deck here.]
Hot tub decking kits
Not many of us will be jet setting on holiday this year, so you might be considering bringing a bit of relaxation to your home with your very own hot tub. We have a full set of decking kits designed with that need in mind and, thankfully, they don’t have to cost as much as the hot tub did!
Starting at just £322.40, you can build your own deck for your new hot tub easily with one of these specially created decking kits.
Don’t panic if you’re not on flat ground
If you live on an incline, it doesn’t mean you can’t build your deck yourself. We don’t just offer decking kits, but also kits for making decking steps. If you want more help to figure out what kind of steps you may need, don’t hesitate to get in touch – we’re happy to help.
What’s in a decking kit?
All decking kits come with all the fixtures and fittings you’ll need along with all of the pre-cut boards and installation instructions you’ll need.
