Not that happy.
We recently bought this product as our first bit of decking we are doing to our garden, the pictures looked great and the price was ok so we was looking forward to put it up but when we started we realised from the instructions that they tell you to use the decking planks that go on top to use as the decking joists aswell.
We have been advised since then not to use planks that thin as joists if you want your decking to last and we have now bought 2*6 timber to use as the joists instead. So long story short we dont advise this decking kit due to the insignificant joists provided and just wanted to warn furture buyers.

Hello, I was about to purchase one of these pergola kits but rhen read the reveiw from Reeko and decided that I need to be sure that the deck will be strong enou,gh for its intended use. The review su,ggests that té deck joists seem to be inadequate.
I am presuming that the joists would be somewhat substantial and so would not need to be replaced with 10x6 joists.
Any advice would be most welcome.
Over the past 3 years Forest has sold over 1,000 Deck Kits using the deck boards (28mm x 120mm or 1" x 4.75") as the joist. I have not any further comments since 2012 refering to this issue.

I need a similar deck module to this one, however the area is smaller than this one, can I combine the modules to create a deck of 4.2 x 2.1 metres.
he area in quuestion has a slight slope of approx 100mm over the 4..2 metres.
Ideally I would like to have a pergola and balustrades also.
The Deck Kit is adjustable by cutting the deckboards, joists, handrails to the required length as long as your are a reasonably competent DIY'er. In terms of the slope the deck does need to be laid on a level surface hence either you will have to dig out or raise the one end.

Can the pergola go either way right and or left hand
Yes, the pergola can be sited on the left or right of the deck.
