What is it about decking

As Australians we spend a great deal of time outdoors. Our homes are designed to be open, light and easy to move through. Which is great as we also like to entertain a lot and that’s why decking is so important. It extends your home from inside into the outdoors. In essence it becomes another room. One without walls and a ceiling. It’s a room with a constantly changing function as well. It’s a space where lunch time meals can be cooked on the BBQ, alfresco breakfasts eaten in the cool mornings, evening sundowners enjoyed with friends, a place to gather around the pool or somewhere to simply to sit and commune with nature. Whatever function it’s serving, timber decks are great places to be alone, be with friends, unwind and relax.

Why Use Richard Robertson Landscapes for Garden Decking in the Mornington Peninsula

Richard Robertson Landscapes specialise in building timber decking that will transform any outdoor entertainment area. The 2018 /2019 summer season has been a very busy one with us installing glass pool fencing and decking pool surrounds across the Peninsula. One of the reasons for that is Richard Robertson Landscapes is currently the only licenced landscaper with Victorian Building Authority for structural landscaping who is also a member of the Professional Industry body ‘Landscaping Victoria’, and a Master Builder’s Master Tradesman on the Mornington Peninsula. We are the perfect choice as timber deck builders.

Different Wood Decking Choices, Cost and Approval

Timber decking can be a single or multi-level. You need wood that will survive the harsh sun as well as rain. Merbu, Australian hardwood, iron bark or treated pine sleepers are some of the best timber decking materials available. The cost depends on accessibility to the site, the type of timber used, the size of the deck, the finish required as well as structural requirements, permits and approvals. Our team of deck builders at Richard Robertson Landscapes will guide you through all of these requirements to get an accurate quote for your new deck.

As with all building, a deck or outdoor entertainment area often needs council permission. We will handle the hassle for you and deal with all the regulatory bodies on your behalf. This way approval will be a prompt and streamlined process for you. We go out of our way to ensure that building your new deck, or even refurbishing an old one will be an enjoyable process for you, leaving you with nothing to do except relax and enjoy the final result.
