Larger than the Mercia Bar, but equally as amazing, the Forest Bar is made from larger timbers but follows the same structural flow as the Mercia. What sets this bar aside and makes it really special though, is the bar overhang that is ideal for stools, so potential punters can pull up a chair whilst you serve the drinks. Our Forest Bar stands at 2120mm tall, so you will have plenty of room for drinks and decorations and, if you want to paint or stain your bar to match your garden, timber is ideal for customising.

Utopia Deluxe Timber Garden Bar (1800mm x 1200mm)

What really makes this bar stand out from the crowd is the rear optics support, so you can hang your bottle collection for all to see… If they last long enough to be put on display. All our bars are sent flat packed and made from high quality, treated timber meaning you will be able to enjoy it all year round, in all weather conditions.

New garden designs for you to try in 2022

It’s the start of a new year, which means you can get started on those resolutions! Was yours to give your garden a complete revamp? If yes, you’re in the right place, here at eDecks we carry a wide range of goods to transform your garden. Including decking of all shapes and colours, pergolas and bars to suit your style!

Open up your garden with dividers

Adding dividers in your garden can make areas feel closed off but not if you make it work to your advantage. A decking kit with rope handrails creates a separate environment in your garden that can be designated for seating and relaxation, which is particularly useful in busy gardens like those used by children and animals. Using planters as a separator can also add much-needed greenery in a perhaps smaller garden and makes the division flow naturally.

Dedicated hot tub area

Love the spa but can’t afford to get there every day? Why not build a zen hot tub area and make your garden the ultimate relaxation zone? We offer a wide range of hot tub gazebos that sit perfectly on both paving and decking and can be made to fit hot tubs of any size. Not only that but our brand new hot tub steps match our gazebos to a T, so your garden can be a matching haven!

Pergola and decking seating area

Pergolas and decking go together in perfect harmony, which is why we sell them together! No matter what size your garden is, adding a sheltered seating area is always a good idea. Our customer Mia has matched her furniture to her pergola and decking to create a relaxing and private area, which can be hard to find in new build homes. By placing a pergola at the end of your garden beside panelling it offers protection from all sides!

Build a children’s play area

Once you’ve built the perfect zen area for yourself to relax in, you’ve got to remember to keep the kids busy! This custom playhouse made by our customer, Jake with our red cedar shingles on our softwood decking is a beautiful way to make your garden child-friendly without disrupting the aesthetics you have worked hard to create there.

Revamp your fencing

Fencing is the frame of your garden, so if your garden is looking a little bit dull switching out the fencing might be a great way to bring it to life! We recently launched some new contemporary fencing which you can read about here so we have an even wider range to match your style. Whether you’re in a new build home or an old Victorian terraced house, new fencing goes a long way.

Upgrade your garden with these easy DIYs

Around this time of year, it can be easy to forget about your garden. Here at eDecks, we think they need love all year round. So, roll up your sleeves and get those tools out, it’s time for some quick and effective garden DIY!

Shelf planters

It can be difficult to find space on small balconies but these shelf planters allow more green in a tight space, making it feel more open. Plants can be especially important in cities where there isn’t as much greenery. Here at eDecks, we have a wide range of reject decking, so these shelves can be made at a low cost and without any environmental impact. All you need are some wood screws, a drill and a saw to cut the pieces to your desired size. This simple DIY will only take a few hours but it will leave you with a beautiful addition to any garden space – big or small!

Floating containers

This garden DIY is, again, perfect for gardens of any size and make your fencing kinder to the eye. If you have ever grown strawberries you will know how they love to grow as far as they can and take over shared planters but with these small containers, they will stay a manageable size. Similarly, with the shelf planters, these boxes can be made from our wide selection of cheap reject wood and follow the same instructions: get some screws, a drill and a saw to cut the pieces to your desired size – and if you don’t want to use screws, waterproof glue works just as well!

Decorative gravel area

Creating a zen area is important for gardens of any space, and it may not even require any building! At eDecks, we have a wide range of gravel and aggregates of many colours and textures. All you need for this simple DIY is two different colour gravels, some low maintenance plants and, optionally, some hardwood decking or fencing to bring the area together. Everyone’s idea of zen is completely different, so if minimalist isn’t your idea of perfect – don’t worry, our next DIY will be right up your street!

Raised vegetable bed

Raised planter beds can be expensive, so making them yourself seems like the smartest option. We carry a range of discount sleepers, that are easy to cut and nail together and have a beautiful rustic look that looks fantastic in any garden, but this oak can be painted any colour! We recommend special sleeper nails for this wood since it is so thick, but the results will be worth it.

DIY jobs can seem intimidating but they are worth having a go! And with such low prices here at eDecks, the costs just make sense, creating things for yourself is much more rewarding.

Make the right decision for your garden grass

It’s time to discuss the age-old question: which grass looks best in my garden?

In this blog post, we are going to explore artificial grass, with so many variations, it can be very difficult to decide which is best for your garden. This product has become popular in recent years thanks to its durability in all weather conditions, lack of maintenance and all-around fantastic look.

Which grass looks better?

It isn’t uncommon for people to say that artificial grass looks fake and unnatural in the garden, but many people have only seen it on a football pitch! Don’t be fooled – it comes in a large variety of colours and textures to fit your home – so whether you have a small space you want to open up or want less to maintain in a large outdoor area, it might be perfect for you.

There is such a wide range of grass products here at eDecks, we even have installation videos to make the DIY even easier!

The range of artificial grass we offer here at eDecks!

Artificial grass offers:

  • No maintenance

You might think that real grass feels softer, but with the wide range of artificial grass, you can actually find softer thread types and to make it even bouncier – you can get a luxurious underlay! Not only is it less maintenance but if you suffer from hayfever it means you won’t react, so you can enjoy your time outside.

Composite Decking Area: How To Work Out The Components Needed

Here at eDecks, we are the Kings of Decking, with more and more decking styles and varieties appearing on our website, as we always strive to better ourselves and keep our customers happy. Therefore we have put together a guide on how to work out the components needed to create your perfect composite decking area.

evergrain composite

Fixing Clips: You will need 23 clips per square metre.

Formula: Square meterage x recommended amount

For example, if you have 45 square metres x 23 = 1,035 fixing clips.

Or, you can also work it out as roughly 12 clips per board.

fixing clip

Starter Clips: You will need 12 starter clips to run on the first board.

If you have over 50 decking boards, we recommend doubling the amount of starter clips and so on.

starter clip

Angle Brackets: If you are using composite joists, please see below.

To find out the amount of brackets you require you will simply need to have double the amount of joists you have.

Each angle bracket requires 4 screws.

If you are using timber joists you will not need the brackets.

real groove

Joists: Because composite deck boards are heavy, the joists will need to be laid every 300mm.

If you have an area of 3.6m x 3.6m, the total area would be 12.96 square metres.

To work out the joists for this, you would calculate it as 3600 ÷ 300mm = 12.

You will also need to add on an extra 4 joists to go on the outskirts of the frame to complete the area.

deck joist

Decking Boards: No matter what size decking you use you will need to add on 5mm to the width of the decking to factor in the recommended gap.

For example, if the width is 145mm (Real Groove), you will need to do the calculation as 151mm in width.

Formula:
1000 ÷ by the width of the board (plus the 5mm gap)

1000 ÷ 151 Times this by your square meterage and then divide by the length of the board you are using.

If you have an area of 12.96 square metres and are using the Real Groove decking, please see below.

1000 ÷ 151 x 12.96 ÷ 3.6m = 26 boards at 3.6m lengths.
