Does it need to be decking, YF? Decking has to be built above ground level with a step(s) down to the grass. If you use stone slabs then these can be laid level with the grass so that children, guests, chairs etc can overflow from the slabs onto the grass. This means that you can have a smaller 'hard' and more soft space in the garden. The soft space can be a mixture of grass and flower beds.

Welcome'll find plenty of ideas if you look in the GoyPedia at the bottom of the page (the alphabet below). i.e. "D" for decking ideas; "C" for child-friendly gardens or whatever. Hope you get some good ideas. "G" for gravel gardens, "P" for patio ideas......etc.

We are currently developing our back garden too and have had patio slabs lain in December and are waiting for turf to go down next month....then it's on to planting up borders etc.

Good luck with your plans :)
