Planning Your Project: You may want to talk to your patio expert with regards to things that should be decided during the planning stage, for instance: what patio materials you are using, what is the patio area going to be used for, what's the perfect position for your patio, the measuring the area to be patioed, are there any obstacles to consider such as (trees, drain covers etc), easy access to the patio, does the area need to be levelled, does it need to slope away from the house along with other matters that your Bushey patio contractor will highlight.

Patio Grouting Bushey

Patio Grouting Bushey: With old, pre-existing patios one of the key issues is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. If this occurs your patio can look awful and probably have weeds and grass growing up between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to alleviate this problem or dowse the weeds with boiling water which is a fantastic way to eliminate weeds without using chemicals. Replacing the grout is not simple and the toughest job is to rake out the old grout which is most likely a cement and sand mortar. If the patio slabs are rocking and loose re-doing the joints is pointless because it won't solve the issue, and you actually need to get the whole thing re-done. If the slabs are reasonably stable and secure you can go ahead and rake out the old mortar by using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire area a really good cleanup once you're finished and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in technique and others are applied using the wet slurry approach. Most specialist patio layers in Bushey will happily do patio repointing, so speak to one near you for a quotation.

Flagstone Patios Bushey: Of the many materials which can be used for creating a patio, flagstone is one of the best. There are many reasons why you must consider this material for your new patio in Bushey, such as the fact that they come in a variety of subtle shades, flagstone patios are durable and last for many years, plants or grasses can be grown between the stones to soften the look of the patio, flagstones look more natural and organic, they have distinctive, irregular shapes and textured surfaces, flagstone patios can be laid dry to provide a permeable surface and flagstones are perfect for "free form" patios, giving plenty of scope for creativity. This type of patio has wide appeal mostly due to the fact that flagstones are natural quarried stones cut from limestone, travertine, sandstone, slate and bluestone.

Resin Bound Patios Bushey: A more recent innovation that is in the main used for creating driveways in Bushey, but can effectively be used for patios is the resin bound system. A resin bound surface comprises a mixture of resin and coloured aggregate stones which is mixed on-site, cold. The finished surface is permeable, allowing water to pass easily through it, avoiding most of the surface water issues that sometimes arise with paved patios. Resin bound patios and driveways are also attractive, hardwearing, slip resistant, weed resistant, relatively maintenance free, long lasting, UV stable, available in a variety of colours and colour fast, they are furthermore very adaptable and can incorporate bespoke designs and logos, making them great for business as well as home use.

Bushey Patios - Issues: All through this site I have dealt with a few of the issues that can affect an old patio, but to reiterate, here are the main problems that are liable to occur with a patio: weeds growing in the joints, loose or unstable slabs, trip hazards due to uneven slabs, standing water due to poor drainage, the staining of patio slabs, dirty patio slabs, patio edgings collapsing, slabs covered in lichen and moss, patio slabs that have sunk or moved, damaged or cracked slabs.

Artificial Grass Bushey

Artificial Grass Bushey: Something that you may wish to look at rather than a patio is artificial grass, which can be 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 real grass, both close up and from afar, but it never needs mowing and never grows. If you're in need of a more cost effective solution for your garden space in Bushey, then artificial grass could just be the answer for you. Too much stone and concrete can look very dull your garden, the green colour of artificial grass is easier on the eye and much more soothing.
