Types of decking we install

Composite decking

Composite decking, blending wood particles with plastic, offers a water-resistant and anti-slip outdoor feature. This low-maintenance option requires only occasional jet washing to maintain its new appearance, free from issues like mould, fungi, and rot. With no need for oiling or staining, it’s a hassle-free choice.

Uncapped composite decking

Our range of uncapped composite decking blends aesthetics with durability, offering a natural look with minimal maintenance requirements.

Capped composite decking

For the ultimate in durability and weather resistance, our capped composite decking is a premium choice, featuring an extra layer of protection against the elements.

Wooden decking

Timber decking brings a natural charm to outdoor spaces and is easily maintained, lasting up to 30 years with proper care. If you’re budget-conscious, consider softwood decking boards, a more affordable yet durable option.

Decking frames

All of our decking frames a sturdy and built to last. We line the ground with weed resistant membrane and gravel to ensure weeds can’t get through. We offer 2 types of decking frame; pressure treated wood and plastic lumber.

Pressure treated timber frame

Our standard decking bases are crafted from pressure-treated timber, ensuring durability and longevity. This treatment protects the wood from decay, insects, and weather, providing a sturdy and reliable foundation for your decking.

Plastic lumber decking frame

For enhanced longevity and minimal maintenance, consider our plastic lumber bases. Made from durable, eco-friendly materials, these bases resist rot, mold, and moisture, offering a strong, long-lasting foundation for your decking.

Enhance the ambiance of your decking area with our range of inlaid lighting options. We offer both solar and wired-in lighting solutions, each designed to complement your decking and extend its usability into the evening hours.

Solar Lighting

This eco-friendly option harnesses sunlight to provide illumination as the day turns to night. Solar lights are easy to install, require minimal maintenance, and are perfect for creating a warm, inviting glow without the need for electrical wiring.

Wired-In Lighting 

For a more consistent and powerful lighting solution, our wired-in lights are an excellent choice. These are connected to your home’s electrical system, offering brighter and more reliable lighting. Wired-in lights can be strategically placed to highlight key features of your decking, enhance safety by illuminating steps or edges, and create a specific mood or atmosphere in your garden.

Acorn have recently redesigned our rear garden installing a new patio and also re turfing. In addition, they removed a concrete wall along the side of the house which has made such a difference to the look and feel of the area. We are so happy with the results and can’t praise Acorn Landscaping enough. Ian and the team worked so hard in all weathers and did an amazing job! We really love our new garden. Many thanks to all at Acorn Landscaping.

Our lawn was transformed from an area of grass, paving slabs and an invasion of Mares Tail weeds, into a glorious array of coloured Indian Stone paving slabs. Absolutely stunning. Grateful thanks to Ian and his team of professional dedicated workers. Highly recommended. Mrs. Jp. Fishwick and family.

Just had 2 patio areas completed by this amazing team of guys. Turned up as expected and worked professionally and dilligently each day, even in pretty adverse weather. A pleasure to deal with right from the quotation stage and the attention to detail by Ian, Zak and Graham throughout the project was second to none. We will definately use this company again for any future garden work, and can highly reccomend them
