Spruce Up Your Garden with Planters

Planters are a great way to use scrap wood-plastic decking, cladding, and fencing. Depending on the leftovers you have, you can make planters as big or as small as you want. Not only will you have planters that blend in perfectly with their surroundings, the plants will also liven up your outdoor space and add a pop of colour. Plus, making your own planters, will cut out the costs of having to buy plant pots.

Create a Stylish Bench

There’s nothing like sipping your coffee or tea in the fresh morning air or reading a good book on a sunny day. A bench made from decking cladding or fencing is the perfect place to sit down, relax, and take in the beautiful surroundings of your garden, terrace or balcony.

Declutter with DIY Storage Spaces

Whether you need to find a space to stock some firewood or are unsure where to keep your garden furniture cushions, these storage boxes made from cladding and decking boards blend in perfectly with their surroundings and provide the perfect space for storage at the fraction of the price.

Create Privacy with Secure Gates

Gates are a great way to keep your privacy. If you’re looking for secure access to your property, we’d recommend creating a larger gate. A shorter gate, on the other hand, will create a welcoming entrance to your home. If you’re afraid that you may not have enough leftover boards, why not create a more intricate design like the gate made of Pioneer decking in stone below.

Create A Bespoke Seating Area

Use your left over composite decking to create a bespoke seating area. This can be a fantastic way to create a unique space perfect for your entertaining needs.
