Fiberon decking is one of the top choices for homeowners who want to build a beautiful deck in their yards that will stand up to the test of time. Yet, like most homeowners, you may have ordered too much decking lumber for the project because you wanted to ensure to have the extra material in case there were any measuring and cutting mistakes. Now, you don’t know what to do with it. Here at Bayou City Lumber, we have a number of suggestions on what you can do with extra decking lumber that will complement the beauty of your yard and increase the curb appeal of your home.
Bench seating is a great way of using up the extra boards from your deck project. They will match the look of your deck if you are using the benches as seating areas in outdoor living spaces, under porticos or around a garden. There are numerous ideas for bench shapes that you can use depending on where it will be based, such as L-shaped and U-shaped benches to provide extra sitting places when hosting outdoor dinner parties.
For those small scrapes of wood that can’t be used for bigger projects, consider making them into planters. Planters made from Fiberon decking will withstand the outdoor elements better as they can be sat on the deck, hung along the railing, or fastened to fencing. Select the right flowers and you will instantly add a touch of color to your outdoor space.
Garden sheds allow you to store all your tools, fertilizers and extra outdoor products in a covered structure that is safe from the weather and secure from thieves. You may want to select fire resistant lumber for your garden shed when you are storing anything flammable inside the shed such as lawn mowers, paints or fuel containers.
