Patios Bletchley

Bletchley Patio Layers (MK3): The moment the spring appears each year most of us dream of spending a lot more time outdoors and of course the garden is the most common place to achieve this. After a wet and windy winter in Bletchley, your garden might be a bit too muddy to do much, therefore the installation of a nice new patio should be the easiest solution to this issue. If you've already got a patio but it has become out of level and overgrown with weeds you might be wondering about having a new one laid or perhaps getting the existing one re-laid if the slabs are still in a decent condition.

While a modest patio assignment might be a job that you could accomplish yourself if you are able in that type of undertaking, it is likely that you will want to hire a skilled Bletchley patio layer to manage the job for you, especially for larger and more complicated patios. It is not only the laying of your garden patio that you have to look at but also the removal and disposal of the waste matter and the introduction of the new patio supplies.

A professional Bletchley patio builder will be able to give you advice on what you may and may not have, suggest and order the right materials and come up with a superb patio design for you to sit nicely in your available space. Ask for a sales brochure, any good patio builder will be pleased to let you see a portfolio of assignments that they've recently carried out in the Bletchley area. From this portfolio you should be able to get an idea of precisely what your patio project will look like when it is completed, this should help you to settle on your design and materials.

Project Planning: You should speak to your chosen patio layer concerning specific factors which must be decided in the planning stage, for example: how easy will it be to access the patio, what is your patio area to be used for, the measuring the area to be patioed, what patio materials you are using, does the area need levelling, do you require a gradient away from the house, are there any obstacles to think about such as (drain covers, trees etc), what's the perfect position for your patio along with other considerations which your Bletchley patio expert will highlight.

Getting the Area Ready: This phase of the patio project should include the removing and disposal of surrounding materials and any unwanted paving waste, digging up of the topsoil layer to get down to the firmer sub-soil, introduction of a sub-base or hardcore material and the subsequent levelling and tamping of this material, covering with a bedding layer for instance sharp sand.

The Final Paving: When the area has all been prepared the patio builder will commence installing the patio slabs, exactly how this stage proceeds will depend upon the types of materials you have picked, and might be fairly straightforward so long as the surface preparation was done correctly and the base is level and stable.

Patio Edging Bletchley: Dependant upon the layout and style of your patio, you might be able to use a smart edging which will really give your patio a nice finish. There are many kinds of patio edgings, although they'll not all be suitable for your particular patio finish, so choose carefully if you opt to go with an edging. You could use a short brick wall edging, a contoured stone edging, a blockwork/brick edging, a kerbstone edging or a coping stone edging. Ask your Bletchley patio layer about the available options and what they consider will go best with your style of patio. They may have photos of patio edgings they've used in the past.

Materials for Paving: There are a diverse array of materials that may be used for building a garden patio, among the most popular are: slate, setts, concrete, cobbles, granite, slabs, sandstone, gravel, asphalt, composite materials, limestone, bricks and blocks.

Driveways Bletchley: When you're having a new patio laid you might need to replace your driveway too. Some patio builders in Bletchley will also be prepared to deal with this task for you, and it could be better to get it done simultaneously so that you only generate one lot of mess and can use the same skip for your removal of waste. This of course will be dependent on your budget and whether it will extend to this additional work, however it is certainly worth thinking about.

Hard Landscaping Bletchley: Pathways, patios and driveways can all be grouped under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (sometimes called "hardscaping"), which essentially signifies any kind of garden design and architecture created using construction materials, rather than plant based materials such as grasses, trees and shrubs, which are normally referred to as "soft landscaping". In many instances garden furniture may also be described as "hard landscaping". (Tags: Hard Landscaping Bletchley)

Patio Grouting Bletchley: With existing patios one of the key problems is with cracked and crumbling grouting or joints. When this occurs your patio area may look messy and doubtless have weeds and grass sprouting up between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to ease the annoying problem or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is a very good technique to kill weeds without using chemicals. Repairing the grout can be a big job and the toughest task is to rake out the old grout which is most likely to be a cement and sand mix. If the patio slabs are loose and rocking repairing the joints is pointless because it is unlikely to make much difference, and you really need to have the whole area re-done. If your slabs are reasonably secure you can go ahead and rake out the old mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire patio a really good clean-up when you're finished and re-grout the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in technique and others are applied using the wet slurry approach. (Tags: Patio Grouting Bletchley, Patio Re-Grouting Bletchley)

Resin Bound Patios and Driveways Bletchley: A more modern innovation which is predominately used for creating driveways in Bletchley, but can easily be adapted for patios is the resin bound technique. A resin bound surface is made up of a combination of coloured aggregate stones and resin which is mixed cold, on-site. The finished surface is permeable, permitting rain water to pass easily through it, reducing the surface water issues that occasionally occur with paved areas. Resin bound patios are also available in lots of colours, colour fast, UV stable, hardwearing, relatively maintenance free, attractive, long lasting, slip resistant and weed resistant, they're in addition highly adaptive and can incorporate bespoke logos and designs, making them perfect for commercial as well as residential use.

Problems With Bletchley Patios: All through this website we have discussed many of the issues that can affect an old patio, but to summarize, here are the main problems that are likely to arise with a patio: slabs that have moved or sunk, weed growth in the joints, slabs covered in moss and lichen, poor drainage for rainwater, unstable or loose slabs, the staining of patio slabs, dirty patio slabs, trip hazards due to uneven slabs, damaged or cracked slabs, leaning edges.

Patio Furniture Bletchley: Once you have finished your patio you'll have to purchase the patio furniture to complete your newly created outdoor space. There's plenty to consider when picking patio furniture and you should spend as much time over this part of the process as you would shopping for furniture for the interior of your home. In the summer you'll likely spend more time relaxing on your patio area than you do indoors, so taking your time is important. You should not simply squeeze in as much furniture as you can, you need to use the available space intelligently. It's a neat approach to continue the colour scheme through from the interior to the exterior of the house, this helps to preserve the smooth flow of the space.

Artificial Grass Bletchley: Another option that you might want to consider instead of a paved patio is artificial grass, which is equally low maintenance, long lasting and can be installed more cheaply than a patio and with less disruption and mess. Artificial grass looks like real grass, both close up and from afar, but it never needs mowing and never grows. If you are looking for a more affordable solution for your precious garden space in Bletchley, then artificial grass could just be the perfect alternative for you. Large areas concrete and stone can look very stark in your garden, the green colour of artificial grass is more soothing and easy on the eye. The cost of artificial grass in Bletchley is similar to cheap quality paving but less than half the cost of higher end patio slabs. (Tags: Artificial Grass Bletchley, Artificial Lawns Bletchley)
