Planning The Project: It is best to confer with your patio layer concerning certain things which should be decided during the planning stage, for instance: does the area need to be levelled, are there any obstacles in the way that you need to consider such as (drains, trees etc), what patio materials are to be used, does it need to slope away from the property, easy access to the patio, what is the patioed area going to be used for, the accurate measuring of the area to be patioed, what is the perfect location for your patio and also other concerns that your Barnet patio expert will point out.

This step of the patio project should include the extraction and disposal of surrounding debris and existing paving waste, removal of topsoil to reach the more stable sub-soil, spreading of a sub-base or hardcore material and the resulting levelling and tamping of this material, overlaying with a bedding layer for example sharp sand.

The Final Paving: Once you have got a flat, robust base laid down, your patio installation specialist can move on to the laying the paving slabs. Provided that the preparation of the area has been done properly, this step of the project should prove to be fairly simple and the patio you have dreamed about will quickly begin to take shape and you will shortly have a fantastic outdoor feature that you can take pleasure in

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

Hard Landscaping Barnet: Patios, driveways and paths all come under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (or "hardscaping"), which effectively signifies any sort of garden design and architecture which uses construction materials, as opposed to plant related materials such as grasses, shrubs and trees, which are called "soft landscaping". In many instances garden furniture can also be termed as "hard landscaping". (Tags: Hard Landscaping Barnet)

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Barnet: If you're putting in a complete new patio in Barnet then you will likely not immediately be too concerned about patio cleaning, though you'll need to be doing this regularly in order to keep your new patio looking in tip top shape. If you happen to be adding onto or extending an existing patio area then you might want to have the old patio slabs cleaned so that they match as closely as possible with the new patio slabs which are being laid. Most often the cleaning of patios is achieved by chemical cleaning or high-pressure water jetting and local Barnet patio cleaning companies will likely provide both of those services. Professional cleaners use exceptionally high pressure equipment that is much better than the type of jet washer that some people have in their garden shed or garage.

Flagstone Patios Barnet: Of all the materials that you can use for constructing a patio, flagstone is considered among the best. There are numerous reasons why you ought to think about this material for your patio in Barnet, such as the fact that flagstone patios can be laid dry to give a permeable surface, flagstones have distinctive, irregular shapes and textured surfaces, flagstones come in rich colours with innate variations, they are perfect for "free form" patios, flagstone patios are durable and last for many years, flagstone patios look more natural and grasses or plants can be grown between the stones to soften the look. This type of patio has wide appeal largely due to the fact that flagstones are natural quarried stones cut from limestone, sandstone, bluestone, travertine and slate.

Resin Bound Patios and Driveways Barnet: A more modern innovation which is in the main used for creating driveways in Barnet, but can easily be used for patios is the resin bound technique.
