Hard Landscaping Bedlington: Patios, pathways and driveways are all described by the umbrella term of "hard landscaping", which simply means any sort of garden architecture and design fashioned from construction materials, as opposed to plant related materials like trees, shrubs and grass, which are known as "soft landscaping". To a degree garden furniture might also be described as "hard landscaping".

Patio Grouting Bedlington: With old patios one of the chief issues is with crumbling joints or grouting. When this happens the patio area can look messy and likely have grass and weeds poking up between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to alleviate this problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a very good way to eliminate weeds without using chemicals. Re-doing the grout isn't easy and the toughest thing is to rake out the existing grout which is most likely a cement and sand mix. If your patio slabs are loose and rocking it is pointless replacing the joints as it is unlikely to solve the issue, and you really need to get the entire area re-done. If the slabs are secure you can hook out the old mortar using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire patio a good cleanup when you're done and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry process.

Flagstone Patios Bedlington: Of all the materials which can be used for constructing a patio, flagstone is considered one of the best.

This type of patio has huge appeal mostly due to the fact that flagstones are natural quarried stones cut from bluestone, limestone, sandstone, slate and travertine.

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Bedlington: A more recent innovation which is mostly used for driveways in Bedlington, but can easily be used for patios is the resin bound technique. A resin bound surface is made up of a mixture of resin and coloured aggregate stones which is mixed on-site, cold. The surface is permeable, enabling rain water to pass easily through it, reducing some of the flooding issues that may occur with paved patios. Resin bound patios are also long lasting, durable, colour fast, slip resistant, UV stable, attractive, easy to maintain, available in different colours and weed resistant, they are in addition very adaptive and can easily incorporate bespoke designs and logos, making them great for business as well as home use.

Patio Furniture Bedlington: Once you've finished your patio you will need to buy some beautiful patio furniture to complement your newly created outside space. There's a lot to think about when buying patio furniture and you should spend just as much time over this process as you would shopping for furniture for the inside of your house. During the summertime you'll probably spend more time relaxing on your patio as you do inside, so doing it correctly is important. Don't just squeeze in as much furniture as you can, you should use the space wisely. It is often a good concept to continue your colour scheme from the inside to the outside of the house, this helps to preserve the flow of the space.

Artificial Grass Bedlington

Artificial Grass Bedlington: Another option which you may want to look at instead of a patio is artificial grass, which can be equally long lasting and low maintenance but can be done considerably more cheaply than a paved patio and with less disruption and mess. Artificial grass looks similar to real grass, both from a distance and close up, but it never has to be mowed and doesn't grow. If you are looking for a more affordable solution for your garden space in Bedlington, then artificial grass could just be the alternative for you. Too much stone and concrete can give a very stark appearance to your garden area, the green colour of artificial grass is easier on the eye and much more soothing.
