Wood, woodworking—the whole thing can seem difficult and and overwhelming, but as long as you've got some DIY spirit, you'll manage. 

Timber decking can be used in a number of ways: as part of garden landscaping, to extend living areas of houses, and as an alternative to stone-based features such as patios. And since you work so hard during the week, we understand that you’d like some time off on weekends to relax.

Thus, see herewith 7 small decks that you can easily build in a weekend – maybe even less!

1. A simple (yet stylish) little patio with built-in potter – easy peasy!

2. Doesn’t this timber-clad space seem so relaxing?

3. Ever thought of adding some decking to a garden balcony?
