Projects: Decking the garden 4

We are finished! The deck is completely laid, sealed and operational. We christened it last night with a bottle of rose that my partner brought back from his brother’s wine-tasting stag do. The deck is in just the right spot to catch the evening sunlight – the wine ran out before the sunshine.

It took us three days in all to put the deck together. Days one and two were much taken up with smashing concrete to sink metposts, but day three – securing and treating all the boards just flew by in a fit of productivity.
Finished deck

So now the deck is in place we have to think about moving on to the next phases of garden awesomeness:

– More gravel

– A pond

– Plants in pots

– A chiminea/BBQ

– More garden chairs

Given that the enormous deck and the warm evenings naturally lead to being social I think that the BBQ and garden furniture are going to be the next priority. With decking so awesome I think the general scruffiness of the back half of the garden can be forgiven – for a while.
