When doing some landscaping, it’s natural that you may have some scrap offcuts. If you want to avoid waste as much as we do, why not use these leftover deck boards and cladding pieces to create something practical and beautiful for your outdoor space like some of the things below.


Spruce Up Your Garden with Planters

Planters are a great way to use scrap wood-plastic decking, cladding, and fencing. Depending on the leftovers you have, you can make planters as big or as small as you want. Not only will you have planters that blend in perfectly with their surroundings, the plants will also liven up your outdoor space and add a pop of colour. Plus, making your own planters, will cut out the costs of having to buy plant pots.

Comfortably Take in Your Surroundings with Stylish Benches

There’s nothing like sipping your coffee or tea in the fresh morning air or reading a good book on a sunny day. A bench made from decking cladding or fencing is the perfect place to sit down, relax, and take in the beautiful surroundings of your garden, terrace or balcony.

Create Privacy with Secure Gates

Gates are a great way to keep your privacy. If you’re looking for secure access to your property, we’d recommend creating a larger gate. A shorter gate, on the other hand, will create a welcoming entrance to your home. If you’re afraid that you may not have enough leftover boards, why not create a more intricate design like the gate made of Pioneer decking in stone below.
