A bloke in B&Q asked me if I wanted decking the other day, luckily I got the first punch in.

25mm x 95mm x 1800mm

Treated for exterior use

Greenish normally, or could be faded if stored outside, or even grey if really old

Anything else you want someone else to look up for you....

Nope... That's quite sufficient for my needs, thankyou (unless you could look up this weeks forthcoming lottery results?)

Did he leave you a tip?

These things are getting smaller each year and are nasty cheap fragile boards that will look embarrasing in your garden. Junk.

hooray henry

Agree to an extent, although smaller the price is somewhat decreased also from what they were a few years ago.

lol. I bought these 2 years ago and treated them straight away with creocote and oil then left for a fortnight. and they are still very good. they haven't warped and still true. nice even gap between the boards and also good to walk on. if treated they're OK for a cheaper decking. just saying. my mate laughed at the creocote but it worked well. doesent walk off on your shoes elsewhere. good treatment. but you have to examine the boards. some are better than others. and you really must treat them when they're down.

also ideal for building plant boxes and pots for the price

thought decking went out of fashion a few years ago !

Thats what i do with them. Looks good, when finished and painted.

Thanks OP, just hope I can pick some up.

Also good to make fairly cheap raised beds on the allotment

i'm converting my loft into storage space so could i use this as an alternative to chipboard loft panels?
new wood beams will be installed as i dont fancy using the loft legs on the original loft beams.

Wouldn't use on the floor as actual decking which will see any decent traffic, but hot for the price for making planters & such like !

thank you, need to make few planters.

Two decking/fighting jokes within the first 15 comments! Impressive!

I prefer "stramash" myself.

Thanks made me laugh out loud

may consider these now after they bumped the 5-pack of 144mm wide planks I was looking at from £25 to £35!

That actually made me laugh and after a morning of putting up coving that's quite an achievement.

It's been a while since I bought chipboard but it should be cheaper and lighter than these.

Also, I'm pretty sure you can get tongue and groove flooring much cheaper too.

Almost as bad as "now is the winter of our discount tents" in every tent thread

These will be ideal to add a front to my decking project!!!

I find b&q always supply timbers in stupidly short lengths, I guess it's easier to fit it in the car but a pain in the bottom if you need the lengths long.

but for people who like short lengths, I'm sure it's fine

Don't fit these outdoors, nobody ever cleans them, they get mossy and end up like ice when they get remotely damp. Like, super duper slippery. It's bloody hazardous trying to walk on them

If you buy these I would suggest picking them out yourself, I was in B&Q a week ago looking at these and it seemed that every 4th or 5th board was unuseable due to warping or cracking - pick out the good-uns and you should be ok.

These are good for making into cheap raised beds.

I can recommend a good gym if you can't.

These are cheap but you get what you pay for, I browsed the selection of decking boards in B&Q recently and then my local Timber merchants and found the Timber merchant to have much thicker, higher quality boards for not much more money.

I built a patio table top using these, looks great

Already on sale at my local B&Q in Southend...just bought 20 planks!
