Our company history involves several decades of working with various timbers that finally led to the formation of the UK Hardwood Decking website that you see before you today. Our founder, Russell Bowlby, spent several decades restoring listed buildings in the UK, during which time he built a Tudor Cottage themed playhouse for his four sons in the late 80s / early 90s. The playhouse received much adoration from friends and visiting parents that many years later Russell decided to stop the renovation work and transition into bespoke play equipment creation as a full-time business. The new business venture is called Flights of Fantasy Creative Play and specialises in the creation of wooden play equipment, pushing the boundaries of creativity that boasts everything from outdoor play areas and pirate ships to play castles and replica farm machinery.
Due to the success of Flights of Fantasy, we soon began receiving requests for other wooden structures, leading to the formation of The Wild Deck Company. At The Wild Deck Company we specialise in the creation of bespoke timber structures in natural settings and have created many bird hides, boardwalks, animal carvings, and visitor centres to name but a few projects. Our demand for a reliable source of hardwood, specifically oak and sweet chestnut, grew so much that we decided to open our own hardwood sawmill so that we could control the volume and quality of our timber supply. Our sawmill, Quercast Sawmilling, now cuts green oak and other UK-grown hardwoods to order.
Due to the nature of Quercast Sawmilling and The Wild Deck Company, hardwood boardwalks are one of our main outputs and we have become specialists in the production of hardwood decking which led to the formation of this website, UK Hardwood Decking. On UK Hardwood Decking we want to provide you with a clean and clear website that allows you to easily generate a quote for your hardwood decking needs. We have been working with timber for many decades and their are very few who can match our knowledge and expertise, so please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions about your upcoming project.
