Why you should consider a Pergola in your garden


Have you thought about having a pergola in your garden? What purpose does it hold and what benefits can it bring to your garden and lifestyle?


Pergolas are an outdoor garden feature that forms a shaded passageway or sitting area constructed by vertical posts. Pergolas can be built in a range of shapes, sizes and styles to meet the individuals needs and preferences extending your living space.


Pergolas are both stylish and functional adding a vocal point to your garden and can act as a support for climbing plants that grow from the ground up such as grapes and vines. They can create a beautiful natural ceiling and garden in the air as they intertwine themselves.


Pergolas create a defined outdoor space whether you choose to use it to relax and unwind or entertain your friends and family. 


Pergolas allow a breeze whilst protecting from direct sunlight, adding drapes can create privacy. 


Lastly pergolas can really add value, experts believe a home with an attractive garden can add up to 20% of your homes value.


MST Home Improvements install pergolas to customers throughout South Wales and are made to measure to the customers preferred style, size and shape.

Composite Decking – A Growing Trend?

Composite decking seems to be a growing trend with home owners, it can transform an outdoor space and really give your garden the wow factor. 


Composite decking can create a very stylish and contemporary space and though  a pricey alternative to timber decking it has many pro’s.


So why are homeowners choosing composite over decking?


Composite decking is very hardwearing and is a low maintenance solution. The product is engineered to be highly impermeable to water and there is no need to stain, sand or seal this product to keep it looking great!


Composite decking is resistant to stains, mould and cracking as well as less slippery then timber decking with the added bonus – its splinter free.


With the environment a hot topic at present this alternative is actually good for the environment – how? Manufacturers use both pre and post consumer waste plastic that would otherwise end up in landfill as well as recycled wood waste so no new trees are required to be felled. 


Composite decking comes in a wide variety of nature inspired colours including greys, browns and earth tones as well as a range of finishes to suit individual preferences.


MST Home Improvements provide landscaping services in the Vale of Glamorgan, Cardiff and surrounding areas including installation of composite decking.


Whether you are looking to book a free quotation for composite decking or want to know more please contact us.
