Deck Bases / Concrete Bases

Our deck base system offers a quick, simple and environmentally friendly foundation solution for your garden office, studio, log cabin or summerhouse. A deck base is also an ideal solution for areas where there are access difficulties, ground-level problems or where concrete is inappropriate.

Should you wish to move your garden building, for example, when moving house, or to another location within the garden, a decking base is much easier than concrete to disassemble and even re-use or recycle.

A deck base can be installed at any point from the time of order up to 24hrs prior to assembly and takes away the hassle of finding reliable/available trades to construct a suitable base. All installations are carried out by Garden Affairs own skilled team and not subcontractors.

What is a Garden Affairs deck base?

Our deck base is a pressure treated, heavy-duty timber subframe, supported by either screw pile foundations, rot proof recycled plastic posts concreted into the ground or a combination of the two.

Your base will be constructed to the size of your garden building. Should you require extended decking, steps or balustrades, we are happy to provide a quotation.

What our customers say...

“I just wanted to write to say thank you for all your help I love my garage/ shed. A huge thank you again – I would recommend you to anyone”

Mrs O'Connor, Hampshire

“ You recently installed a garden building for us in Wells. It is now fully up and running as a workshop and my husband has spent many happy hours there already on various DIY projects. On your recommendation we used Thorndown Paint which was excellent - beautiful colours (Sedge Green), easy to apply and a lovely finish. You will see from the photos that this building looks as though it was meant to be here, nestled under the shade of a silver birch…”

Mr & Mrs Shoobridge - Wells

“Great team, great workers and a great product. Many thanks This is just a quick thank you note to let you know again just how delighted we are with the summerhouse. It has been a great pleasure to deal with you and your team throughout the whole project, and I have special praise for the crew that we had on-site during the few days it took to put the building together. Great team, great workers and a great product. Many thanks”

Mr R, Chesham, Buckinghamshire

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the erection team .... for such a positive and professional experience. Our whole experience with Garden Affairs has been excellent and we rate you very highly. The studio itself is gorgeous!! Thanks again.”

Mr & Mrs Mathieson - Bridport

“Thank you again for everything. We really are thrilled From the first visit to the office for tentative discussions to the moment the construction team left our garden, Garden Affairs could not have been more professional, friendly, knowledgeable, agreeable and flexible to deal with, and the result is a studio with separate 'garden/bike shed' space that somehow fitted into our tiny garden and raises the spirits every time we look at it, let alone spend time in it. We are so grateful to the whole team…”

Mrs Gahlin, Bath

“I was so very pleased with all my dealings with you and the professional but friendly help received and the level of excellence from the building itself to the erecting of it From one very satisfied customer - with very best wishes and thanks for a job well done”

Mrs B, Ipswich
