are you joking that would be one small decking

You can get 1.8. Or 2.4 meter decking from most suppliers. 2.4 meters are most popular but 1.8. Are sold everywhere. Just look before you post

Isn't that about 5m2?

each board is 0.171sqm so 30 is 5.13sqm

£11.69 per sqm, not much better than the standard B&Q crap boards £4 for 2.4m 120mm x 25mm (£13.89sqm)

local builders merchants does 4.8m lengths 150mm x 38mm for about £10, thats under £14 per SQM for something that will last 20 years

how many of these would i need to cover 14 square meters? iv searched high n low on net trying to work it out , any help please

82 allowing for zero waste

better off with 4.8 meter boards delivered from a local merchant, a much faster way of doing it, will only take 20 boards

This would be alright for knocking up a couple of planters to sit on existing decking but a bit small for decking a large area.

Nothing to stop you doing two purchases a few hours apart, or indeed two seperate purchases between you and a partner/friend!

If you needed more, could you not just buy 30, load up your car, then go back in and buy another 30?

I'd guess they are just trying to stop jobbing builders going in and buy pallet loads at once.

Best to keep them outside for as long as possible before cutting up if using as vertical boards for the side of a planter. I left mine in the garage (for some time) before measuring up and cutting, built the planter and it looked fine. A few weeks of being outside, the width of the decking shrunk leaving vertical gaps of a few millimeters. Not too serious but if you're using a fair number, this may add up.

The stuff I got was from B&Q and was double-sided with small curved ridges on ones side and standard on the other.

how much are they usually? does anyone know? thanks. :-)

I don't think they usually sell 1.8m. Wickes had some green ones for around £1.80 recently, but all their 1.8m boards have vanished off their website now.

If you want a big deck this isn't a good deal. I have a 1.8 by 0.6 veranda to cover in front of my little girl's playhouse to cover so this is ideal. Just need to figure out if it will fit in the car!

Go in with friends if it's 30 max per customer

Hmmmm. 60 for 5sqm.. need 9sqm... so almost double. Plus joists, spindles, rails...

might as well buy a ready made set from ebay

ebay.co.uk/itm…944

Got thrown out of B&Q yesterday guy at checkout asked me if I wanted decking so I got the first punch in

Just went and got 60 planks. Perfect for the decking i want to do, and has cost so much less thanks!

Am 6 boards short does anyone know where I can pick up this size deck board

OK so if you can get these everywhere how come I need 20 more and can't find them ANYWHERE?? Even 3.6m boards are a different thickness/width. HELP!!!!!!!
