Patio Layers Burgess Hill

Burgess Hill Patio Layers (RH15): As soon as the spring appears each year most of you plan to spend more time outside and of course the garden is the most obvious place to achieve this. After a wet and windy winter in Burgess Hill, your garden is likely to be just a muddy mess, so putting down a splendid new patio could be the obvious solution to this problem. If you already have a patio but it's starting to get covered with weeds and out of level you may very well be considering having a new one or perhaps just lifting up and relaying the old one if the slabs are still in a good state of repair.

Whilst a modest patio project might be something you could carry out by yourself should you be keen on that sort of undertaking, it is most likely that you will want to hire the services of a professional Burgess Hill patio layer to manage the project for you, particularly for bigger and more complicated patios. It is not just the laying of your garden patio you have to think about but the removal and disposal of the resulting waste matter and the introduction of the required patio supplies. You also need to keep in mind that laying patios is fairly back-breaking work, particularly when the old slabs are fixed with concrete. A large patio slab with a lump of concrete on is going to be rather weighty, therefore you should at the very least ask someone to assist you in lifting these, should you opt to do-it-yourself.

Patio Ideas Burgess HillPatio Design Ideas Burgess Hill: The assortment of design and layout ideas that can be applied to your patio are endless and if you aren't good at designing things you may choose to confer with a local Burgess Hill landscaper or patio design specialist if you're planning something complicated. You might opt to keep it simple and go with a plain rectangular or square shape on a single level or you could go wild and merge different shapes on split levels to give your patio more character or to fit in with an inclined garden for instance. If you're hoping to get a cheap patio, you should keep it as basic as possible, because bespoke patios can be quite expensive.

Any self-respecting patio specialist in Burgess Hill will be able to advise you about the best way to proceed with the installation. For starters you might look at a circular patio, a block paved patio, a split-level patio, a patterned concrete patio, a mosaic patio, a stone patio or a free form patio.

Patio Slabs/Paving Slabs Burgess Hill: As you would expect, patio slabs come in all sorts of different sizes and at varying prices. Things like personal taste, your budget, current fashions and the need to match pre-existing materials will have an impact on the sort of slabs you decide to use. In recent times, the majority of home owners in Burgess Hill favour concrete or sandstone patio slabs, because these are readily available in nearby garden centres and DIY outlets, and can be conveniently delivered. Prices (at the time of writing) range from approximately three to fifteen pounds each though they're commonly available in bulk packs of twenty or more. Typical sizes are: 300x300mm, 450x450mm and 600x600mm, the thickness varies from 22mm to 38mm.

Patio Grouting Burgess Hill: With old, pre-existing patios one of the main problems is with cracked and crumbling grouting or joints. If this is the case with yours then the patio will look messy and will doubtless have grass and weeds establishing themselves between the slabs. You can minimize this problem by the application of a good weedkiller or perhaps by dowsing the weeds with boiling water which is a superb, but largely unknown, non-chemical solution to kill weeds in cases like this. It is often a tricky job to repair the grout, and the toughest job of all is the removing of the old, eroding grout. Having the whole thing re-done is the only real solution if the paving slabs are loose and unstable, seeing that replacing the joints won't solve the issue. If the slabs are reasonably stable and firm you can press on and rake out the old mortar by utilizing a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. When you're done, give the entire patio a good cleaning and undertake the re-grouting with a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in system.

Resin Bound Patios Burgess Hill: A more contemporary innovation which is mainly used for driveways in Burgess Hill, but can equally be adapted for patios is the resin bound process. A resin bound surface comprises a mixture of resin and aggregate stones which is mixed cold, on-site. The finished surface is permeable, enabling rain water to pass through it, avoiding the flooding issues that can occur with paved areas. Resin bound patios are also weed resistant, easy to maintain, colour fast, attractive, available in lots of colours, non-slip, long lasting, hardwearing and UV stable, they are in addition extremely adaptable and can readily incorporate customized logos and designs, making them great for commercial as well as private use.

Artificial Lawns Burgess Hill

Artificial Lawns Burgess Hill: Something that you may want to look at instead of a patio is artificial grass, which is equally low maintenance, long lasting and can be done a good deal more cheaply than a paved patio and with less mess and disruption. Artificial grass looks like genuine grass, both close up and from afar, but it doesn't grow and never has to be mowed. If you're on the lookout for a more economical solution for your precious garden space in Burgess Hill, then artificial grass might be just the alternative for you. A lot of concrete and stone can look very drab your garden area, the green colour of artificial grass is more calming and easy on the eye. The cost of installing artificial grass in Burgess Hill is about the same as doing it with cheap quality paving but less than half the cost of higher end paving slabs.
