A behind the scenes look at a landscaping project in Hove carried out using our Ipe Decking Boards and ArchiDeck Hidden Fastenings.
Whilst we don't fit the hardwood decking boards we offer, we do have a number of contractors we are happy to recommend. One of our favourites in the Brighton region is Langlea Garden Design, who regularly fit our Balau and Ipe decking boards.
Langlea, headed up by designer Lea Sideris, have a reputation for creative and fun landscaping, so we jumped at the opportunity to film them on a job fitting our Ipe Decking Boards to create a sun-trap deck in a South facing garden.
In order to display the Ipe boards to their full potential, fitting was carried out using ArchiDeck Hidden Fastenings. By clipping into the side of decking boards, ArchiDecks cut out the need for unsightly face screws, making them the logical choice of fastener if you have invested in a high-end decking timber.
As ArchiDecks require a rebate to be cut into the side of the decking board, fitting times can be increased. Our unique pre-grooving service, however, eliminates the need to biscuit joint on site as we are able to cut a slot down the entire length of a board in our mill before despatch. This service is available for just 50p a linear metre plus VAT.
The benefits of ArchiDecks are obvious, as can be seen on this video. Langlea finished this job to a high specification, using complementary slate tiling and lights that are controlled solely via iPads.
