Patios Borehamwood

Borehamwood Patio Layers (WD6): The minute springtime arrives each year many of us dream of spending more time out of the house and obviously the garden (for those lucky enough to have one) is the most natural place to begin. After a dismal and wet winter in Borehamwood, your garden may be a bit too muddy to do much, so installing a nice new patio would be the answer to this problem. If you currently have a patio but it is overgrown with weeds and uneven you might be wondering about getting a new one built or perhaps taking up and re-laying the old one if the slabs are still in good condition.

Whilst a smaller patio assignment is perhaps something you could complete yourself if you are conversant with this kind of undertaking, it is most likely that you will want to search for a skilled Borehamwood patio layer to handle the project on your behalf, particularly for complicated patios. It is not merely the installation of your garden patio you must think about but the removing and disposal of the waste materials and the introduction of the required patio products.

Area Preparation: This phase of the patio project includes the extraction and disposal of surrounding materials and any unwanted paving waste, removal of the topsoil layer to get down to the firmer sub-soil, introduction of a sub-base or hardcore material and the subsequent pressing down and levelling of this material, covering using a bedding material like sharp sand.

Paving the Area: When the area has all been got ready the patio layer will start laying the patio slabs, exactly how this stage proceeds will depend upon the types of materials you have picked, and will be comparatively uncomplicated if the ground preparation was carried out correctly and the final base is stable and flat.

Paving Materials: There's a wide array of materials which you can use for building a garden patio, amongst the most widely used are: cobbles, gravel, granite, sandstone, composite materials, concrete, setts, slabs, bricks, slate, limestone, asphalt and blocks.

Patio Edging Borehamwood: Dependant upon the layout and style of your patio, you may possibly be able to incorporate an attractive edging which really gives a patio that professional finish. There are numerous kinds of edgings for patios, although they'll not all be appropriate for your specific patio finish, so be certain to choose carefully if you want to go for an edging. You could have a low brick wall edging, a wavy stone edging, a blockwork/brick edging, a coping stone edging or a rounded kerbstone edging. Check with your Borehamwood patio layer concerning the available options and what they believe will look best with your patio. They may have pictures of patio edgings they have used on other jobs.

Patio Design Ideas BorehamwoodPatio Ideas Borehamwood: The number of layout and design ideas that can be used in a patio are endless and unless you are skilled at designing things you should seek advice from a local Borehamwood landscaper or patio design specialist if you are planning something extravagant. You might opt to keep it simple and go with a simple square or rectangular shape on one level or you could go wild and incorporate split levels and different shapes to give your patio more character or look better on an inclined garden for instance. Custom patios can be costly so be alert to your budget requirements regularly and if you are leaning towards a cheap patio, keep the design simple. Specific aspects of your patio are likely to be dependent on the space that is available and the shape of your garden, if you have not much space your choices will be somewhat restricted. Your local Borehamwood patio specialist will be able to advise you on the best way to proceed. Several patio ideas which may get you thinking include: a stone patio, a poured concrete patio, a mosaic patio, a free form patio, a block paved patio, a split-level patio or a circular patio..

Hard Landscaping Borehamwood: Driveways, pathways and patios are all described by the umbrella term of "hard landscaping", which effectively refers to any type of garden architecture and design made from construction materials, rather than plant based materials such as shrubs, grass and trees, which are generally known as "soft landscaping". In some instances garden furniture can also be described as "hard landscaping".

Flagstone Patios Borehamwood: Of the varied materials which can be used for constructing a patio, flagstone is considered among the best. There are numerous reasons why you should think about this material for your new patio in Borehamwood, and these include the fact that flagstones come in a variety of subtle shades, flagstone patios can be laid dry to provide a permeable surface, they have distinctive textures and shapes, flagstone patios look more natural, flagstones are perfect for "free form" patios, providing plenty of scope for creativity, they are long lasting and durable and plants or grasses can be grown in the gaps between the stones to soften the look of the patio. This type of patio has huge appeal largely because flagstones are natural stones which are quarried and fashioned from travertine, sandstone, bluestone, limestone and slate.

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Borehamwood: A more contemporary innovation which is mainly used for driveways in Borehamwood, but can equally be used for patios is the resin bound system. A resin bound surface is made up of a combination of resin and aggregate stones which can be mixed cold, on-site. The resulting surface is permeable, permitting rain water to pass easily through it, preventing some of the surface water problems that often occur with paved patios. Resin bound patios and driveways are also relatively maintenance free, colour fast, attractive, available in lots of colours, non-slip, long lasting, weed resistant, durable and UV stable, they're in addition extremely adaptive and can readily incorporate customized designs and logos, making them ideal for business as well as private use.

Issues With Borehamwood Patios: All through this site I have discussed several of the issues that can occur with an old patio, but to review, here are the primary problems which are likely to occur with a patio: infestation by weeds, slabs covered in moss, algae and lichen, sunken patio slabs, patio slabs which have become unstable or loose, stained patio slabs, poor drainage for rainwater, trip hazards due to uneven slabs, leaning edges, cracked or damaged slabs, dirty patio slabs.

Patio Furniture Borehamwood: Once you've finished your patio you'll need to choose some patio furniture to complement your new outdoor space. There is plenty to think about when purchasing patio furniture and you need to spend the same amount of time time over this part of the process as you would in buying furniture for the interior of your home. In the summer you will probably spend more time lounging on your patio than you do indoors, so doing this right is vital. Don't just cram in as much furniture as you can, you should utilize the available space carefully. It is often a good idea to continue the colour scheme through from the interior to the exterior of the house, this helps to preserve the flow of the space.

Artificial Lawns Borehamwood

Artificial Grass Borehamwood: Another option that you may wish to look at rather than a patio is artificial grass, which is similarly long lasting and low maintenance and can be installed considerably more cheaply than a patio and with less disruption and mess. Artificial grass looks the same as real grass, both close up and from afar, but it never has to be mowed and never grows. If you are on the lookout for a cost effective solution for your garden space in Borehamwood, then artificial grass may just be the alternative for you. An excessive amount of stone and concrete can look very dull your garden, the green colour of artificial grass is more calming and easier on the eye. The cost of artificial grass in Borehamwood is roughly the same as when using cheap quality paving slabs but less than half the cost of high end paving slabs.
