Patios Brighton

Brighton Patio Layers (BN1): As the spring appears each year we start thinking about spending more time in the fresh air and of course the garden (for those lucky enough to have one) is the most common place for that to happen. After a wet and dismal winter in Brighton, your garden could be a bit too muddy to walk on, so installing a fabulous new patio could be the obvious solution to make the garden more functional. If you do currently have a patio but it is starting to get out of level and overrun with weeds you may be thinking about having a new one laid down or perhaps getting the existing one taken up and re-laid if the paving slabs are still sound.

Whilst a modest patio project is perhaps something that you could undertake yourself if you are conversant with this kind of undertaking, it is likely that you'll want to get a professional Brighton patio layer to handle the project on your behalf, especially for more substantial patios. It is not only the laying of your garden patio that you should take into account but the removal and disposal of the waste plus the introduction of the required patio materials. You also need to keep in mind that installing patios can be heavy work, particularly if the old slabs were bedded in concrete. A large paving slab with a lump of concrete on it can be pretty heavy, so at least find somebody to help you lift these, if you choose to tackle it yourself.

A seasoned Brighton patio contractor will be able to advise you on exactly what you should and shouldn't have, suggest and supply suitable materials and work out the ideal patio design for you to suit your available space. Request a brochure, most reliable patio contractors will have access to a portfolio of patio jobs they have previously finished in the Brighton area. From this portfolio you should be able to get a good idea of just what your project will look like when it is completed, this enables you to determine your preferred layout and materials.

Planning Your Project: You should consult with your patio layer concerning things that should be decided in the planning stage, such as: what patio materials you are using, are there any obstacles in the way (trees, drains etc), what's the perfect location for your patio, how easy will it be to access the patio, the measuring the area to be patioed, does the area need to be levelled, does it need to slope away from the house, what is the patioed area to be used for and other factors which your Brighton patio specialist will highlight.

Area Preparation: This phase of the patio project will include the removing and disposal of surface debris and unwanted paving waste, removal of the topsoil layer to get down to the firmer sub-soil, putting in of a hardcore or sub-base and the resulting levelling and pressing down of this material, overlaying using a bedding layer such as sharp sand.

Laying the Paving: When everything is prepared your patio specialist will begin putting down the slabs, just how this level proceeds will depend upon the materials you opted for, and might be comparatively straightforward if the surface preparation was executed correctly and the final base is flat and solid.

Patio Edgings Brighton: Depending on the layout and style of the patio, you may possibly be able to put in a snazzy edging which will really finish the job off nicely. There are numerous types of edgings for patios, although they won't all be appropriate for your particular patio finish, so be certain to choose carefully if you decide to go with an edging. You could pick a blockwork/brick edging, a contoured stone edging, a rounded kerbstone edging, a low brick wall edging or a coping stone edging. Ask your Brighton patio installer concerning the options and find out what they think will look best with your patio. They could have pictures of patio edgings they've used on similar projects.

Materials: There's a broad range of materials which you may use for building a patio, among the most popular are: granite, asphalt, limestone, gravel, setts, slabs, composite materials, concrete, cobbles, sandstone, slate, bricks and blocks.

Patio Slabs/Paving Slabs Brighton: Paving or patio slabs are offered in all manner of sizes and shapes, their prices can differ widely too. Which type of slabs you choose for your own patio might be based on whether you need to match pre-existing materials, your allowed budget, personal taste and current fashions. The most favoured patio slabs laid in Brighton these days are made from concrete or sandstone and a wide variety of these can be obtained in garden centres and DIY outlets. Prices (in 2018) start at around £3 up to £15 although they're generally sold in packs or twenty or more. Typical sizes are: 300mm x 300mm, 450mm x 450mm and 600mm x 600mm, the thickness can vary from 22mm to 38mm.

Driveways Brighton: At the same time as you are having a new patio laid you may also decide to replace your driveway too. Many patio builders in Brighton will also be prepared to handle this job for you, and it might be advantageous to get it done at the same time so that you only have one lot of mess and you are able to use one large skip for the waste removal. This of course will be dependent on your budget and whether it will extend to this additional work, however it is definitely worth thinking about.

Hard Landscaping Brighton: Pathways, patios and driveways can all be grouped under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (occasionally called "hardscaping"), which in essence refers to any type of garden architecture and design which uses construction materials, in contrast to plant related materials such as trees, shrubs and grasses, which are generally referred to as "soft landscaping". Sometimes garden furniture may also be termed as "hard landscaping".

High-Pressure Patio Cleaning Brighton

Patio Cleaning Brighton: If you are putting down a complete new patio in Brighton then you will likely not be concerned about patio cleaning, though you'll need to do this on a fairly regular basis so as to keep your new patio looking in the best possible shape. If you're extending or adding onto a pre-existing patio area then you might want to get those previously laid patio slabs cleaned up so that they blend in with the new slabs. Most often patio cleaning is achieved by pressure washing or chemical cleaning and local Brighton patio cleaning contractors will likely provide both of those services. Professional cleaners use extremely high pressure equipment which is far better than the type of jet washer some people have in their garage.

Flagstone Patios Brighton: Of the varied materials that can be used for building a patio, flagstone is arguably among the best. There are numerous reasons why you should consider this option for your patio in Brighton, such as the fact that they have irregular textures and shapes, grasses or plants can be grown in the gaps between the stones to soften the look of the patio, they come in a variety of subtle shades, flagstones are perfect for "free form" patios, giving lots of scope for creativity, they look more natural, flagstones can be laid dry to provide a permeable surface and they are durable and long lasting. This sort of patio has wide appeal largely due to the fact that flagstones are naturally occurring stones which are quarried and fashioned from bluestone, sandstone, travertine, slate and limestone.

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Brighton: A more contemporary invention which is mostly used for creating driveways in Brighton, but can also be used for patios is the resin bound process. A resin bound surface comprises a combination of resin and coloured aggregate stones which can be mixed on-site, cold. The finished surface is permeable, allowing water to pass through it, reducing the flooding issues that often arise with paving slabs. Resin bound patios are also non-slip, long lasting, available in lots of colours, hardwearing, relatively maintenance free, UV stable, weed resistant, colour fast and attractive, they are in addition very adaptive and can incorporate customized logos and designs, making them suitable for business as well as home use.

Patio Furniture Brighton: As soon as you've finished your patio you will be wanting to choose some beautiful patio furniture to complete your newly created outside space. There is a lot to think about when buying patio furniture and you should spend just as much time over this part of the process as you would in shopping for furniture for the interior of your home. In the summer you'll likely spend more of your time relaxing on your patio as you do in the house, so doing it correctly is crucial. You should not just squeeze in as much furniture as you can, you should use the available space intelligently. It is a good approach to continue the colour scheme from the inside to the outside, this helps to preserve the smooth flow of the space. (Tags: Patio Furniture Brighton, Garden Furniture Brighton)
