Timber decking is a relatively new ‘lifestyle’ concept for South Africa – and has become a widespread alternative to traditional hard terraces and patios. One of the strongest themes in contemporary landscaping is that of the ‘new garden’; whereby the exterior is to be treated as an ‘outside room’. In this context, timber decking is an excellent way of extending the living space of a building. Why Timbermax Decking?
