Thinking About Adding a Timber Patio?


Timber patios are a way of life in Queensland. You may remember the famous GANGgajang song, Sounds Of Then, that captured the essence of life on a patio so perfectly. As the song goes, ‘Out on the patio we sit / and the humidity we breathe / we’d watch the lightning crack over canefields / laugh and think, this is Australia’. It’s practically in our blood—no wonder we love patios so much!

But timber patios provide much more than just a great view. They’re also the perfect way to extend your living area, create that outdoor entertainment space you’ve always wanted, or compliment a pool.

So if you’re looking for a timber patio to refresh, revive, and revolutionise your current living space, get in touch with us at DeKing Decks. We can design and build the perfect patio deck for you!

Patio design and privacy

When thinking about your patio design, always keep privacy and noise in mind. What’s the use of having a patio if noise from your neighbourhood always disturbs your own private moments?

To help protect your privacy, a patio can include features that provide a boundary between you and your neighbours. These features can include café blinds or pull down roller blinds, fences, plants, rendered walls and privacy screens.
