Here at Valley Sawmills we are constantly on the look-out for new innovative products that can enhance your garden, making it a safer and a more attractive place to spend time in. Our range of timber decking has always been a popular line with our customer base as we only use top grade timber that will last for years and provide an attractive and safe area to sit and enjoy your garden space.

However once laid all decking can become somewhat similar in appearance and with the cold and wet winters can become unsightly, so we’ve been looking at how other more exotic timbers can add value and longevity to outdoor decking and have come up with two fantastic woods that will not only look good but last a lifetime!

Firstly, Cumaru – a very similar timber to the very expensive Ipe - is a dense heavy exotic timber from South America. It is sometimes called Brazilian Teak and is one of the hardest timbers in the world. It is harder than Ebony and Ironwood and more than twice the hardness of White Oak. It is also very durable and resistant to decay with an expected life span of at least 50 years or more.

Cumaru decking - £8.45 per metre

Secondly, Yellow Balau is a hard dense and moderately course hardwood from South East Asia and is one of the most common hardwoods used for decking in the UK. Colour can vary from light brown to golden colour and it has good resistance to decay and insect attack. Whilst not an unusual timber we now have access to stocks of well coloured Yellow Balau in a range of sizes.

Yellow Balau decking - £6.45per metre


As always we have a great selection of Oak and softwood sleepers, air dried English hardwoods boards, fencing, gates and panels as well as our full range of furniture, sheds and garden timber items

May is also the perfect time to replace any broken or rotten sections of fencing before the warmer weather hopefully arrives. We have a great selection to choose from - including our new range of quality panels and fencing and some great discounts on some Jagram products............. we also have a great selection of containers and planters, pergolas and a wide range of timber structures for the garden!

For those of you with timber garden furniture and structures in your garden, as well as gates, fencing and panels – its good idea to give them a spirit based treatment to protect them. We stock a wide range of brand leading products including all the accessories needed for effective application, as well as a range of fixings for gates and sheds should they need replacing.
