Patios Aberdeen

Aberdeen Patio Layers (AB10): As springtime arrives every year most of us start thinking about spending much more time out of the house and of course the garden (for those who have one) is the most obvious place to begin. After a windy and wet winter in Aberdeen, the garden could be a bit too muddy to walk on, therefore the installation of a brand new patio is the best solution to get the garden looking great again. If you do already have a patio but it is wonky and overgrown with weeds you will be wondering about getting a new one put in or perhaps taking up and re-laying the old one if the paving slabs are still in good condition.

Although a modest patio project might be something you could attempt on your own if you're used to that type of undertaking, its likely that you'll want to hire a skilled Aberdeen patio layer to do the project on your behalf, especially for more complex patios. It isn't just the laying of your garden patio you need to consider but the removal and disposal of the waste matter plus the introduction of the required patio supplies. You also need to keep in mind that laying patios can be quite back-breaking work, especially when the existing patio was fixed with concrete. A big patio slab with a lump of concrete on is going to be rather weighty, so you should at least ask somebody to assist you in lifting these, if you elect to do-it-yourself.

Project Planning: You should without fail check with your chosen patio expert concerning certain matters which should be decided during the planning stage, for instance: easy access to the patio, does the area need levelling, what's the perfect position for your patio, does it need to slope away from the property, what patio materials are you planning to use, what is your patio area to be used for, the accurate measuring of the area to be patioed, are there any obstacles to consider such as (trees, drains etc) along with other considerations that your Aberdeen patio contractor will highlight.

Area Preparation: This stage of the patio project will include the removing and disposal of surrounding materials and old paving waste, removal of topsoil to reach the firmer sub-soil, putting in of a sub-base or hardcore material and the subsequent levelling and tamping of this material, overlaying using a bedding material such as sharp sand.

Paving the Area: When all has been prepared your patio builder will start putting down the patio slabs, exactly how this process proceeds depends upon the materials you've chosen, and might be quite uncomplicated if the surface preparation was executed correctly and the final base is level and sound.

Patio Edging Aberdeen: Although it will depend on the layout and style of the patio, you may possibly be able to incorporate a snazzy edging which really finishes a patio off nicely. There are numerous kinds of edgings for patios, although they'll not all be appropriate for your particular patio finish, so be certain to choose carefully if you want to go with an edging. You could use a short brick wall edging, a contoured stone edging, a kerbstone edging, a brick/blockwork edging or a coping stone edging. Ask your Aberdeen patio layer about the available options and what they think will best go with your patio. They will probably have images of patio edgings they have used on other projects.

Paving Materials: You can find a broad array of materials that you can use for building patios and terraces, amongst the most popular are: limestone, slate, asphalt, concrete, composite blocks, setts, bricks, cobbles, slabs, gravel, granite, sandstone and blocks.

Hard Landscaping Aberdeen: Patios, driveways and paths all come under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (or occasionally "hardscaping"), which effectively means any kind of garden architecture and design made from construction materials, rather than plant related materials such as shrubs, trees and grasses, which are normally known as "soft landscaping". In some instances garden furniture could also be described as "hard landscaping".

Flagstone Patios Aberdeen: Of the many materials which you can use for building a patio, flagstone is considered one of the best. There are numerous reasons why you must consider this option for your new patio in Aberdeen, such as the fact that they are long lasting and durable, they have irregular textures and shapes, they come in rich colours with natural variations, grasses or plants can be grown in the gaps between the stones to soften the look of the patio, they are just the thing for "free form" patios, they can be laid dry to give a permeable surface and flagstones look more natural and organic. This kind of patio has much appeal primarily due to the fact that flagstones are natural stones which are quarried and fashioned from limestone, sandstone, travertine, bluestone and slate.

Resin Bound Patios Aberdeen: A more modern invention that is predominately used for creating driveways in Aberdeen, but can also be used for patios is the resin bound technique. A resin bound surface comprises a mixture of coloured aggregate stones and resin which can be mixed on-site, cold. The surface is permeable, enabling rain water to pass easily through it, avoiding most of the surface water problems that can occur with paved areas. Resin bound patios are also attractive, UV stable, colour fast, long lasting, available in lots of colours, non-slip, weed resistant, durable and relatively maintenance free, they are furthermore extremely versatile and can easily incorporate customized logos and designs, making them great for business as well as private use.

Patio Furniture Aberdeen: When you've finished work on your patio you will need to buy the patio furniture to complement your newly created outside space. There is plenty to consider when purchasing patio furniture and you should spend the same amount of time time over this process as you would obtaining furniture for the interior of your house. In the summer season you are likely to spend more time relaxing on your patio than you do inside, so doing it correctly is important.
