10 ways to use Kwila Decking in your Backyard

Kwila is a beautiful wood to use! Just because it is usually cut as decking, does not mean it can’t be used in different ways.


1. Fences and Gates

2. Privacy Screen

Similar to the fence you can create a beautiful privacy screen for any outdoor entertainment areas facing the street. Try growing an evergreen climber up the side for a contrast to the wood.

3. Deck for a Pool

Use Kwila to build a deck surrounding your pool. The colour of the wood contrasts well with the bright blue of the pool.

4. A Pergola or Cabana

Need some shade next to your pool? Try using Kwila to create a resort like feel, by building a pergola or cabana to offer a cooler place to lounge around. This would also be perfect or a covered BBQ area for the kiwi summer!

5. A Boxed Garden

Do you have animals that terrorize your garden? A raised or boxed garden will keep your plants safe, while also making a feature of the wooden sides and edges.

6. A Boardwalk or Path

If you’re working with a larger garden, try using Kwila to create a path leading visitors to a covered BBQ area or pond. You could also sink Kwila into grass to create an eye-catching path to your front door.
