Planning The Project: Make sure you speak with your patio layer with regards to certain considerations that must be decided in the planning stage, such as: does it need to slope away from the house, the measuring the area to be patioed, does the area need to be levelled, what is the patioed area to be used for, are there any obstacles to think about such as (drain covers, trees etc), how easy will it be to access the patio, where is the perfect position for your patio, what materials are you using along with other matters which your Bradford-on-Avon patio layer will point out.

Properly preparing the area where your patio is going to be located is extremely important if the completed patio is to be satisfactory. This phase will comprise excavating the topsoil to an appropriate level, spreading on a layer of hardcore, compacting this using a vibrating plate and finally applying a 25mm covering of sharp sand.

Paving the Area: When everything is got ready the patio specialist will begin putting down the patio slabs, just how this process proceeds will depend upon the materials you have picked, and should be relatively straightforward so long as the surface preparation was done correctly and the resulting base is stable and flat.

Materials for Paving: There are many different materials from which a patio or path can be crafted and the most common that you will find are slabs, granite, concrete, composite materials, asphalt, limestone, blocks, setts, slate, bricks, cobbles, sandstone and gravel.

Driveway Installation Bradford-on-Avon: When you're getting a nice new patio laid you may also decide to freshen up your driveway too. Most Bradford-on-Avon patio installers will gladly handle this job, and it might be better to get it done simultaneously so you only generate one lot of mess and can use one large skip for the removal of waste, therefore saving yourself both time and money. Your budget will of course determine whether you are able to do this or not, but that is definitely worth doing if at all possible.

Hard Landscaping Bradford-on-Avon: Pathways, patios and driveways are all described by the umbrella term of "hard landscaping", which quite simply signifies any type of garden design and architecture which utilizes construction materials, in contrast to plant related materials such as trees, shrubs and grasses, which are normally referred to as "soft landscaping". I guess, at a pinch, you could even consider garden furniture as being hard landscaping. (Tags: Hard Landscaping Bradford-on-Avon)

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Bradford-on-Avon: If you are currently installing a patio in your garden, then patio cleaning isn't going to be an issue that you're thinking about at this moment, however once your patio is put down frequent cleaning is essential to keep it looking great. It is going to be a slightly different scenario if you're adding to or extending a patio which is already in-situ. In this case you will more than likely need to scrub up the old slabs so they match as closely as possible with the new patio slabs which are being laid, or else the whole thing will look ridiculous. In general chemical cleaning or high-pressure water jetting is the most efficient way of cleaning a patio and you'll find that the majority of patio cleaning contractors in Bradford-on-Avon will offer both of those services, to get your patio clean. Professional cleaners use very high pressure equipment that is far better than the sort of jet washer many people have in their garden shed or garage.

Patio Grouting Bradford-on-Avon: Grouted joints that are eroding or cracked is the major problem you will come across with older patios. When you are facing this predicament, you will more than likely have grass and weeds establishing themselves in between the slabs and the entire area will look very messy. You can use weedkiller to ease this issue or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a great way to destroy weeds without using chemicals. It is usually a tricky job to restore the grout, and the hardest job of all is the removal of the old, eroding grout. At the end of the day there is no point re-doing the joints if your slabs are loose and rocking, since it will not make much difference, and having the whole patio re-done is the only possible solution. If you decide that the slabs of your patio are sufficiently stable, the next step will be to scrape out the damaged mortar using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. You can carry out the re-grouting procedure with a polymeric or resin grout, once the area has been meticulously washed and cleaned. Some of these forms of grouts are employed using the wet slurry procedure, while others use the dry brush-in process. Most specialist patio layers in Bradford-on-Avon will do patio repointing, so get in touch with one near you for a quotation.
