Small decking job in Chalfont St. Peter

Small decking job in Chalfont St. Peter

A small garden in Chalfont St Peter with no usable terrace was in need of a space for outside dining. Overlooked by a commercial office and with a broken fence there was a little landscaping required too.

The decking design

In order to fill the space and preserve the exiting planting the decking had to be designed as a simple “L” shape. Mindful of the shed and existing path with consideration for a new fence the space was utilised to the full.

Even though the decking was rather small, all considerations for BS5268-7.1 were observed. The post supports and beams are in accordance with regulations as too for the joists. With no timber touching the floor and a weed membrane to cover the ground, we’ve built a structure to last.

The first and most important element of the design is the Before… This is what a designer must see through with a clear vision to enable the client to understand exactly what is being proposed.
