Enhancing an outdoor living area with high quality decking

Slate Grey offers professional design and installation of decking areas for gardens in Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas. Garden decking is a great way to enhance your garden and provide an additional seating and entertaining area for family and friends. Wooden decking offers a warm and organic feel and creates a good contrast to harder stone surfaces.

All our decks are built to last and to the highest standards using quality fixings. We are committed to using sustainably sourced (FSC) timber for all of our projects and have an array of samples available to demonstrate the wealth of different timber finishes that are available today.

Once installed, all hardwood decks are finished with a high quality oil to enrich the colour, protect from UV damage and create a safe, anti-slip finish.

We keep up-to-date with the latest planning regulations and if required can carry out any necessary planning applications for our clients.

For larger or more complex decking areas Slate Grey also offers a complimentary deck design service.

As well as decking construction, we can also design and build timber pergolas, arches, arbours & other wooden garden structures to enhance your garden.

To help get the most from your deck, we can also install subtle low voltage lighting systems, which create a warm mood to the finished deck during the evening and helps prolong the time you can enjoy sitting outside. Our lighting systems can be controlled by conventional wall switch, by remote, or even your smartphone. Read more about our Garden Lighting Service.
