Everyone wants to have a backyard that is comfortable, open and inviting, that or they don’t want a backyard at all, there’s rarely an in-between! One of the best ways for you to get the backyard you want is to install a beautiful deck area. This adds a classic look to your backyard and can often transform an outdoor area into a homey entertaining space.

At Brisk Landscaping, we provide many Melbourne homes and commercial properties with some of the best decking options for their backyard. Below, you can read more about decks and all the options we can provide you with.

The Purpose of A Deck On Your Property

Decks provide a space for entertainment in backyards while enhancing the visual appeal of a property. They can be used to create a designated space for features like spas or barbecues. You can combine decks with a number of other features in your backyard, for example, lighting, furniture, landscaping and more.

Base Materials For Your Deck

If you’re looking for something natural and classic when it comes to your outdoor aesthetic, we have a number of different timbers you can choose from. We have:

  • Redwood timber
  • Hardwoods
  • Cedar

If you want something a little different, we also provide man-made material options for your decking such as:

  • Composite
  • Aluminium
  • Plastic woods

Depending on the wood or material you choose, it will have a different composition and it will provide you with different benefits. The common trend between all of the woods we use is that they are strong and durable.

Benefits of Wooden Decks

A major benefit of wood decks is that they’re able to adapt easily. When you’re in an area that experiences extreme weather or fluctuations in weather, our wood decks are some of the best ways for you and your family to be secure in your decision to get a deck.

Wooden decks are great for areas that are close to water or that are exposed to a lot of water as the wood will absorb the moisture efficiently. We recommend this wood for individuals who have families because they are non-slip so, if you have children who run around outside a lot, this wood might be suitable for you.

Because they can adapt easily to the weather, they’re extremely low-maintenance. You don’t have to have your deck sealed as often and you don’t need to worry about it rotting.

Each different material has different components, but they all achieve the same goal in which you will have a strong and durable decking option.

Types of Decks

We can provide you with some popular decking styles such as:

  • Freestanding decks
  • Multilevel Decks
  • Italian pergolas

We can also design and create other types of decks for you and your family to enjoy such as additional decks for pools, spas or increased living space. Simply let us know what you have in mind and our landscaping and decking experts can help create the backyard of your dreams.
