Lanterns Can Light the Way for Your Decking in Shropshire

Decking in Shropshire isn’t complete without some light, and luckily here at Weston Sawmill we also provide a variety of styles of lanterns that can fit any style of decking.

Although the temperatures are quite chilly right now, there’s nothing you stopping you planning and visualising those nights out on the garden decking once the warm weather comes around again.

Our lanterns will also save you money on your electric bills, as you can use candles or battery powered fairy tea lights (both of which don’t require a fixed electrical source) to spread light across your garden. This will also give your decking a unique look and certainly get your neighbours talking.

The Choice of Modern or Vintage Lanterns for Decking in Shropshire

Weston Sawmill’s range of lanterns offers the best of both worlds! Whether you are looking to complement a contemporary or vintage look we have a style of the lantern that will fit right in.
Our range of storm lanterns can be used on an outdoor table on your decking in Shropshire. Lining them along the length of the table adds a subtle light for cosy nights outside during the summer for a modernised design.

Another use for our range of lanterns in your garden. There is a growing trend which we’re right behind of hanging them from your trees close to your decking. As it is with the tables this brings warmth and creates a cosy atmosphere which blurs the lines between your indoor living areas and outdoor decking.

Our range of small metal lanterns is sturdy so you can also use them to light a pathway to your shed or pond, without the fear of them falling over and breaking. With their intricate patterns, they will also display the candle lights in an innovative way! For more of a vintage look.

Getting your Fire Burning with Weston Sawmill

Have you moved invested in a new property perhaps moved into a new home over Christmas that has a log fire and you’re unsure how to use it? Well, we’ve got you covered.

You may not know but Weston Sawmill offers logs and coal for fires, guaranteed to keep you toasty during the last few months of Winter. Log fires are the perfect setting for a romantic night, an evening relaxing with friends or on your own with a book or a catch up of television. They set the mood for peace and harmony.

Your Guide to Lighting a Log Fire

There are two methods of lighting a log fire; either top down or bottom up lighting. Quite simply the former meaning you light from the top and the latter lighting from the bottom. Our team here at Weston Sawmill would recommend top-down lighting, as it produces less soot and ashes. Ensuring better air supply as well as your first set of wood last longer.

Here are a few steps to lighting your log fire –

  • Ensure all vents in the fireplace are open and put the logs on the bottom of the fireplace.
  • Make sure your wood is cleft and dry and have your logs thick as a fist or thicker.
  • Add a layer of small logs, then two layers of kindling (also available from Weston Sawmill).
  • Put a couple of fire firefighters on the top layer of the kindling wood, or alternatively some newspaper. Beware though as newspaper creates excess amounts of ashes and contributes to more soot.
  • Now you can light your log fire and close the door, depending if your chimney creates a good draught you may need to open the door to the wood stove, until the fire really gets going. If your home or cabin is ‘too’ insulated, you may also need to open a window in this case.

We hope you found this guide to lighting a log fire useful and remember if you need logs, kindling, smokeless or regular coal; you can purchase all these items from Weston Sawmill.

Decking in Shropshire

Dream of summer with decking in Shropshire

Planning for decking in Shropshire for the summer is a great way to beat those post-Christmas blues.
Keeping your mind focussed and setting attainable goals is what January is all about and we thought we’d share some great ideas for decking in Shropshire to get your creative juices flowing.

Get creative with decking in Shropshire

You may not know, but you can have square or rounded decking in Shropshire, so let’s have a look at the benefits of both –
• Square decking – Using our expert team of designers and installers here at Weston Sawmill this can look spectacular and work to any budget. Typically square decking also works well with some form of railing or balustrade
• Rounded decking – For those with a bigger budget and more space in their garden, rounded decking is ideal for those looking to construct around a pond

Deciding on levels for your decking in Shropshire

There are three different levels you can have your decking installed at; with each suiting a unique design aesthetic as well as differing budgets.

Ground level decking is the most popular type as it’s the most straightforward to install as well as being a great alternative to a patio.

Raised decking often appeals to families with a sloped or split landscape as it can give you spectacular views of your garden.

Multi-level decking is a premium option we offer at Weston Sawmill, as it can completely change the look of your garden and transform it into an entertainment or hosting area in the summer. Because of the multi-levels you can choose to have a seating area in one level and then perhaps a barbeque or hot tub in another; the choice is yours!

Here at Weston Sawmill we only use the finest materials to construct our decking in Shropshire, to make sure our products can bring your ideas to life.
