At the Waterwheel Inn, Mark and Francesca have transformed a wild and overgrown garden into a fantastic outdoor space. They have created a tranquil and safe environment for the guests of the B&B and restaurant to enjoy. The garden has decked walkways leading around ponds and a waterfall feature, surrounded by tropical plants and tree ferns. There is also a large five-by-eighteen-metre decked terrace for guests to use.
Gripsure Classic was the decking board profile of choice for this project, ensuring safe use for guests all year round and in all weather conditions. Decked ramps have also been added around the building and garden to improve disabled access to the Inn. As the Garden sits in a shaded valley, Mark and Francesca initially thought timber decking was out of the question until they discovered Gripsure.
"Because traditional timber decking can be dangerously slippery, we never imagined we would be able to use timber to achieve such a spectacular result".
Gripsure decking also made an impression on some of the guests at the Waterwheel Inn as Mark and Francesca said "We have had lots of positive feedback from guests – one even took a sample of the decking away with him!"
