    Millboard: Decking subframes build to last

    Millboard explores which is the best subframe to avoid decking being damaged or becoming structurally dangerous. If you’re looking to build a decking project that is going to stand the test of time, the subframe of a decking area is one of the most important parts. Whilst the subframe is generally hidden, it is crucial for the deck’s longevity. A poor subframe choice or install can lead to the decking being damaged or can even lead to the decking becoming structurally dangerous and eventually failure. With so many different subframes to choose from, which one is best and what should…

    Side vs Rear Discharge Deck – Which is Right for You?

    Up and down the lawns and green spaces of the UK, there is one topic of conversation that splits opinion: what’s better, a side or rear discharge deck? Traditionalists will argue that a side discharge deck offers greater flexibility and quality, and now that it can be fitted or retrofitted to accommodate mulching, you needn’t look elsewhere. However, rear discharge deck disciples would argue that not only can a rear discharge deck make light work of a lawn, it’ll distribute trimmings more evenly and, as trimmings exit behind the mower, allay safety concerns. Whichever side of the fence you sit…
