Here is a high level decking that we built in Edinburgh for a client near the Pleasance. She only had a small courtyard that had very little light as it was bounded by a wall that came up to her bedroom window, just visible middle right. So we built the deck to the wall height. If you look at the windows of the flats you can get a feel for the height. We had to build a staircase up to the deck, 14 steps I think. the deck itself is hardwood, yellow balau.
The balustrade was made from stainless steel wire and tubular steel handrail. We paved the courtyard and fitted a water feature and put some specimen planting in like the bamboo visible to bottom right of deck.
Here is a picture of a split level softwood deck . The upper area is cut on a radius and the balustrade is formed from timber uprights with a hemp rope baluster. Note the inset lighting to the right of decking step.
This decking Edinburgh design is formed from tanalised redwood pine deck boards.
The boards are 145mm wide and 37mm thick with a 5mm spacing and are secured with 75mm long screws.
The boards sit on the underbuild which consists of 150mm x 50mm joists @ 500mm centres.
this was a particularily large deck approx. 90 sq. m. and can actually be viewed on google satellite maps!!
There was also associated Edinburgh landscaping to the right where we formed steps from hardwood timber sleepers and laid a lawn. chevron fence panels were fitted to the rear of the deck to give privacy.
Here are two types of balustrade for a timber deck from Garden Construction Co. The top one for a low level deck doubles as informal seating and is nicely understated to complement the modern style of the deck.
The lower picture shows decking Edinburgh and a standard balustrade specified to building standard being 1100mm high with 100mm spacings to balusters. At 1.8 m high it is essential that the decking balustrade conforms to these standards.

Here is a soft wood deck that we built for Rachel who lives in Edinburgh at the back of Arthurs Seat. We had to manually excavate the decking area as there was no access for a digger. The ground level was the height of the wall before we dug it out. So once we had excavated the area, we built the retaining wall , concrete block cement rendered. Then we installed the deck and finished off with timber sleeper steps with stone paving inlays to upper terrace.
Here is a gorgeous deck by Garden Construction Co in Edinburgh for a client in the Polwarth area of Edinburgh . This is a hardwood deck hence the darker colour from standard pine. We also installed a pond for the customer with a waterfall as complementary landscaping to the whole scheme resulting in another happy customer.
Here,s another deck that the Garden Construction Co have just completed in Edinburgh. This one is a raised deck 1.8m high constructed from softwood pine that has been treated ( tanalised) to prevent rot.
the balustrade is fitted at 1100mm high which conforms to building control standard. The spacing to balusters is 100mm , this prevents children getting their heads stuck in between the rails!Hope you enjoy thereally exciting video of the timber decking .
