GreenBird Gardening Ltd, based in Portishead, North Somerset, was commissioned to design an entirely fresh outdoor scheme for this seaside property. Alongside their planting scheme, GreenBird’s proposed hard landscaping features included an expansive deck where the owners could relax and enjoy alfresco dining. The new garden creates a wonderfully relaxed feel and, thanks to subtle lighting, is as enjoyable after dark as during the daytime. As a Millboard Approved Installer, GreenBird Gardening knew Millboard’s Weathered Oak in Driftwood shade would be the ideal complement to the rest of their design, with its characterful grain supplying the instant impression of age. The decking’s superb looks are matched by its performance. Unlike wood, Millboard decking will not rot, warp or split, and it needs no special maintenance. Food and drink spills can just be wiped away without leaving stains. Weathered Oak’s excellent slip-resistance also means that even after rain, the deck can be safely enjoyed.
