Patio Ideas BridportPatio Design Ideas Bridport: The variety of design and layout ideas that can be used for a patio are limitless and unless you're quite good at designing stuff you might choose to seek advice from a local Bridport patio design specialist or landscaper if you're planning something elaborate. You might go for the daring option and incorporate various shapes on split levels to give your patio more character or look better on a sloped garden for example, or you might decide to keep it safe with a basic rectangular or square shape on one level. On the grounds that professionally designed patios are inclined to be quite expensive, it would be advisable to keep it fairly basic if you want a cheap patio. The shape of the garden and the space that you have available will have an affect on particular design features of the patio, and the options are going to be to some degree restricted if you don't have a lot of space to play around with. Your local Bridport patio specialist will advise you on the best way to proceed. To get you motivated, potential options could be a mosaic patio, a circular patio, a stone patio, a textured concrete patio, a free form patio, a split-level patio or a brick patio.

Patio Slabs/Paving Slabs Bridport: Patio slabs of course don't simply come in one size or thickness, there are a wide range of styles and sizes with equally varying price tags. Which kind of slabs you choose for your patio may be determined by current fashions, personal tastes, your planned budget and the need to match pre-existing materials. As of late, most people in Bridport favour concrete or sandstone paving slabs, since these are readily available in nearby DIY merchants and garden centres, and can be easily delivered.

Patio Grouting Bridport

Patio Grouting Bridport: Cracked or eroding grouting or joints is one of the main problems with existing patios. Whenever you're confronted by this predicament, you'll more than likely have grass and weeds growing up between your slabs and the entire area will look messy. To tackle this, you could saturate the weeds with boiling water which is an effective non-chemical technique to eradicate weeds, or alternatively you could use an effective weedkiller. Repairing the grout is not simple and the toughest task is to rake out the existing grout which will probably be a sand and cement mix. When all is said and done repairing the joints is pointless if the paving slabs are loose and rocking, because it is unlikely to have much effect, and having the whole patio re-slabbed is the only real answer. If you verify that the slabs on your patio area are properly stable and secure, the next step will be to chip out the damaged cement mortar with a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole patio a thorough clean-up when you're done and re-grout the slabs with a resin or polymeric grout. Some use a dry brush-in technique and others are applied using the wet slurry process. (Tags: Patio Grouting Bridport, Patio Re-Grouting Bridport, Grouting Patios Bridport)
