After a long and rainy winter in Chester, your garden could be a bit too muddy to walk on, so laying a nice new patio would be the obvious solution to this problem. If you do currently have a patio but it is overrun with weeds and wonky you may very well be wondering about having a new one laid down or perhaps getting the old one taken up and re-laid if the slabs are still sound.

Hard Landscaping Chester: Driveways, pathways and patios can all be grouped under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (or sometimes "hardscaping"), which in a nut-shell means any sort of garden architecture and design made from construction materials, rather than plant based materials such as shrubs, trees and grass, which are normally called "soft landscaping". In some instances garden furniture could also be termed as "hard landscaping". (Tags: Hard Landscaping Chester)

Patio Cleaning Chester

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Chester: If you are installing a whole new patio in Chester then you'll most likely not immediately be too concerned about patio cleaning, although you'll need to be doing this on a regular basis so as to keep your new patio in tip top shape. If you're extending or adding onto a pre-existing patio area then you may want to get those previously laid patio slabs properly cleaned so that they match the newly laid slabs as closely as possible. Most often the cleaning of patios is done by chemical cleaning or high-pressure jet washing and most local Chester patio cleaning contractors will quite possibly provide both of these services. Professionals use very high pressure equipment which is a lot better than the type of jet washer that you might have in your shed or garage.
