As a supplier, Howarth has a responsibility to our customers to support them from the moment they order online or in store, to the moment they bring the products home and start their landscaping project, whether it be decking, paving, or otherwise. We work alongside the customer to create their ideal outdoor space, all while using a trusted blend of high-quality products and expertise that you can rely on.

As a result, in this article, we'll look at a recent landscaping job that Howarth provided materials for, showcasing how easy it can be to build the perfect deck.

The Plan

When the customer contacted Howarth, their aim was to fill an unused space in their garden with something that would not only be beneficial for during the hot summer months but would also be an eye-catching addition to their overall garden space. They also noted that this empty space provided the best sunlight, which is especially essential during the summer when the sun is at its hottest.

The staff at the Wakefield branch went above and beyond to assist them with their product selection as they were initially torn between timber and composite decking. However, the branch staff took pride in advising them of the advantages and disadvantages of both, ultimately leaving the decision entirely up to the customer and what they felt was best.

This is something we at Howarth take pride in: our employees are not only really welcoming and friendly, but also extremely knowledgeable when it comes to providing helpful advice.

And as a result, the team at the Wakefield branch embarked on a plan to create a beautiful garden deck for this customer, so that their landscaping dreams can finally come true.

The Project

As a result, a plan was put together to have the deck delivered and built in time for the start of summer. The Howarth team delivered all the materials, and the customer noted how thorough the delivery process was, as well as how well the driver could deliver everything safely in such a narrow and often difficult-to-access area of their garden. Once the materials, decking frame and joists were delivered, it was time to begin building the deck.

Throughout the assembly phase, the client commented on how she liked the appearance of the screws being concealed within the decking base, which was due to the builder's use of the CAMO tool to fit the decking boards together. The CAMO tool is a Howarth classic and is quite popular for decking installation, particularly if you want a clean and smooth appearance. If you're interested in learning more about the CAMO decking tool, you can read more about it here.

And during the project's completion, the customer was highly delighted with the general efficiency and organisation of the project.
