Top Garden Decking related questions

What are the uses of garden decking?

Garden decking creates cosy outdoor spaces for relaxation, al fresco dining, and summer BBQs. The types of decking range from pure timber to composite decks. Decking provides versatile designs to suit any purpose. What’s more, decking complements plant life and provides a more natural aesthetic than stone paving.

Do I need planning permission for garden decking?

Planning requirements vary from case to case. For example, you’ll need to get planning permission if your deck will be higher than 300 mm (~1 ft) from the ground. Also, planning permission applies to decks within 20 metres of a highway or situated in a conservation area. You may also need permission if your deck will affect the amenity value or privacy of neighbouring properties. For updated planning guidelines, you may contact your local authority.

Does a garden deck builder need a license?

It depends on the situation. The type of licence depends on the deck's size and height, local council regulations, and state licensing authorities. Simple deck installations may not need a licensed deck builder. On the other hand, you’ll need a licensed deck builder to install a deck that requires planning approval.

How long does it take to install garden decking?

Garden deck installation can take as little as 1 to 2 days. This timeframe applies to small gardens (e.g. 15 square metres). But labour time may vary depending on the size of your garden, decking material, and the number of tradesmen building the deck. Taskers can give you a customised estimate once you put up a task for your garden decking needs.

Is decking cheaper than paving?

Garden decking is usually cheaper and easier to install than paving. However, paving slabs lasts longer than decking. Paving is not only pricier than decking, but the former takes more time to install. Decking and paving each have their trade-offs, and your choice boils down to budget and style preference. Both decking and paving services are available on our platform. And we can help you find specialists within your budget.

Can my Tasker also rat-proof my garden deck?

Yes, some Taskers may be able to offer rat-proofing services along with garden deck installation. One way to rat-proof a deck is to install strong chicken wire under the deck. Chicken wire can prevent rats from getting through. Simply include rat-proofing in your garden decking request to avail of this service. We’ll then connect you with tradesmen who can do the job.

What do garden decking services include?

Taskers offer all sorts of garden decking services, including deck installation and deck maintenance. Your Tasker can even handle the trip to the home improvement store. This way, you can stay in the comfort of your home while your Tasker picks up and transports your decking materials to your location. 

 

The main types of garden decking include softwood, hardwood, and composite material. Here’s an overview of the different types of decking services you can request on our platform.

 

Timber decking 

Turn your unused space into a liveable area for relaxing and socialising. Timber decking comes in many forms, such as garden decks, terraces, and rooftop spaces. You can hire a Tasker to build any structure of your choosing, be it a small garden deck or swimming pool deck. To achieve the ultimate cosy space, you can also ask your Tasker to line your deck with pretty garden lights. 

 

On top of your decking installation, why not hire a gardener to build you some garden beds or trim your hedges? Or have a Tasker come over to do a general garden clean-up or take away your discarded shrubs and excess soil. 

 

Softwood decking 

Softwood comes from fast-growing trees like pine. As a result, softwood is one of the cheapest decking materials in the market. Not to mention, softwood decking is easy to install. While softwood is weaker than hardwood and composite decks, softwood can last up to 25 years with regular cleaning and oil treatments.

 

(If you prefer low-maintenance decking, artificial grass or AstroTurf are some good alternatives.) Once your softwood deck is ready, a furniture assembler can come over to set up your outdoor dining table or playground. 

 

Hardwood decking

Hardwood may be one of the most expensive decking materials out there, but it can be worth the investment. This material has a beautiful and high-end appearance. Furthermore, hardwood can last for more than 50 years and requires less maintenance than softwood. Hardwood decking comes from Oak and other slow-growing trees.

 

For this reason, hardwood is rarer and more expensive than other decking materials. It may be harder to work with hardwood, but an experienced deck specialist can guide you through the planning and building process. Our platform can also connect you with garden shed builders if you need a space to store your tools and bikes. 

 

Composite decking

Composite decking combines the benefits of wood and plastic. Like wood, composite decks are aesthetically pleasing. Also, composite decks come in a wide range of colours and textures that look like real wood. At the same time, composite decking provides features you don’t get from pure wood. For example, composite decks are waterproof and require little maintenance. 

 

In fact, composite material is less prone to mould and algae growth. Composite decking can also last for over 50 years. We can help you minimise costs by connecting you with quality composite decking builders within your budget.

Hi Airtaskers, I’m wanting to have a corner deck built in the backyard. See attached pics of location. Size would be 2.6m x 2.6m single level. I am open to suggestions, but thinking Merabu would be good decking material choice. One small challenge is that there is a Storm Water access point that must be somehow accessible if required i.e. easily removable or hinged section etc. I am on a budget, but wanting good quality & appearance. So putting the challenge out there and interested to see quotes (I know it’s going to be more than $5 BTW). Flexible with completion date, but around end of June would be good. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards Paul
