Our favourite alternative uses

Not only is Millboard decking one of the most realistic wood-look decking boards available on the market today, landscapers and gardeners have long been utilising its versatility and durability to create striking designs. As Millboard decking can be mitred and glued using PU wood adhesive, it makes it very easy to create a seamless masterpiece.

Coming up roses

Create raised beds, zone your garden or simply use up any offcuts you may have from your project with planters. They offer an attractive alternative to timber or other composite decking solutions that would be affected by the moisture of the soil and frequent watering.

Colour-wise, complement or contrast with your flooring and fill with beautiful grasses, flowers or bulbs to inject some greenery and colour into gardens small or large.

Just add water

Thanks to the waterproof qualities of the boards, a water feature made from Millboard products creates a beautifully modern centrepiece that would not normally be viable with traditional timber. Pictured is the example from our London showroom, which you can visit here.

Table talk

Take a seat at the table with the tops made from decking boards. The non-porous surface makes it much easier to clean small spills, and the Lastane finish is more resistant to scratches compared to harder products.

Also used in commercial environments, spot them at outside dining areas such as Costa Coffee, Pret-A-Manger and KFC to name but a few.

Gate crasher

Millboard’s good-looks aren’t just inspired by wood, installation is too. This makes it straightforward to create items that would normally be made from timber without the associated drawbacks, such as gates, fencing and screening.

In the swim

Many timber decking options are usually a no-no around a pool, as the slippiness of timber when wet is not worth the risk. The hazard of splinters under foot is also important to consider, making regular sanding a must.

You needn’t compromise on the looks of timber though, as Millboard decking is an ideal alternative. The boards reduce the risk of slipping and will resist fading better than timber. Being completely wood-free, there are no risk of splinters either.

Off the wall

Explore the biophilia trend that is currently booming – it’s been said it can even help with improving your wellbeing – with a living wall made from Millboard decking boards. Purchase low-maintenance preserved moss panels (low maintenance as it does not grow, so doesn’t require trimming or watering!) or alternatively simply use the boards as a backdrop to create a rustic, homespun style.
