Though a small patio assignment is perhaps a job that you could accomplish yourself if you are able in this type of work, it is most likely that you will want to get a skilled Ferndown patio layer to carry out the project for you, particularly for bigger patios. It is not simply the installation of your garden patio that you should take into account but the removal and disposal of the resulting waste matter and the introduction of the new patio supplies. You also need to bear in mind that building patios can be heavy work, particularly if the existing slabs are bedded in concrete. A large sized patio slab with a chunk of concrete on is likely to be rather weighty, so at the very least find somebody to help you lift these, if you decide to do-it-yourself.

A competent Ferndown patio builder should be able to give you advice on exactly what you may and may not have, recommend and order appropriate materials and come up with the best patio design for you to suit your available area. Ask for a sales brochure, most reliable patio layers will have a portfolio of patio projects which they have recently carried out in the Ferndown area. From this brochure you may be able to get a good idea of just what your job will be like when it is done, this will help you to pick your preferred layout and materials.

Patio Builders Ferndown

Before any actual work starts, you need to talk a few things over with the patio builder. This is perceived as the planning phase and it's critical if the finished patio is going to fit the bill. This preparatory discussion might involve such matters as are there drains or manholes in the way, the preferred location, where a skip can be positioned for the removal of waste, does the site need levelling, and what size and type of paving slabs are to be used.

This stage of the patio project will involve the removal and disposal of surrounding materials and any unwanted paving waste, digging up of the topsoil layer to reach the more stable sub-soil, introduction of a hardcore or sub-base and the subsequent compacting and levelling of this material, covering with a bedding material for example sharp sand.

The Final Paving: When all has been prepared the patio layer will start putting down the patio slabs, how this stage proceeds will depend upon the exact materials you've selected, and should be comparatively straightforward if the surface preparation was done correctly and the final base is flat and solid.

Materials for Paving: There's a broad range of materials which may be used for building a patio, amongst the most widely used are: setts, slate, granite, sandstone, slabs, bricks, gravel, composite tiles, asphalt, limestone, concrete, cobbles and blocks.

Paving Slabs/Patio Slabs Ferndown: Patio or paving slabs come in all sizes and shapes, their prices can vary widely as well. Which type of slabs you select for your patio could be dependant upon personal tastes, the need to match existing materials, your planned budget and current trends. The most popular patio slabs laid in Ferndown gardens nowadays are made of sandstone or concrete and these can easily be bought in local garden centres and DIY outlets. Prices (in 2018) range from around £3 up to £15 although they're usually sold in bulk packs of 20 or more. Typical sizes are: 300x300mm, 450x450mm and 600x600mm, the thickness can vary from 22-38mm.

Hard Landscaping Ferndown: Driveways, pathways and patios all come under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (occasionally called "hardscaping"), which simply signifies any kind of garden design and architecture made from construction materials, rather than plant based materials such as grass, trees and shrubs, which are generally known as "soft landscaping". To a degree garden furniture is also described as "hard landscaping". (Tags: Hard Landscaping Ferndown)

Patio Pressure Cleaning Ferndown

Patio Cleaning Ferndown: If you are laying a complete new patio in Ferndown then you'll most likely not be currently concerned with patio cleaning, though you'll need to be doing this fairly regularly so as to keep your new patio looking in the best possible condition. If you happen to be adding onto or extending an existing patio then you might want to get those old patio slabs cleaned up so that they blend in with the new slabs. Most of the time patio cleaning is achieved by high-pressure jet washing or chemical cleaning and local Ferndown patio cleaning companies will likely offer both of those services. Professionals use exceptionally high pressure equipment that is much better than the sort of jet washer that many people have in their garage or shed.

Patio Grouting Ferndown: With old, pre-existing patios one of the chief issues is with crumbling joints or grouting. If this is the case with yours then the patio area may look untidy and have grass and weeds poking up in between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to ease this problem or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is an outstanding non-chemical solution to get rid of weeds. Re-doing the grouting is not simple and the hardest task is to remove the existing grout which is most likely a cement and sand mix. If your slabs are loose and moving there is little point repairing the joints because it won't make much difference, and you really need to get the entire area re-slabbed. If your slabs are secure you can go ahead and rake out the old mortar by utilizing a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the whole area a thorough cleanup once you are done and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry approach. Most specialist patio layers in Ferndown will help you with patio repointing, so get hold of one near you to get an estimate. (Tags: Patio Grouting Ferndown, Patio Re-Grouting Ferndown)

Resin Bound Patios Ferndown: A more modern innovation which is predominately used for driveways in Ferndown, but can equally be adapted for patios is the resin bound technique. A resin bound surface is made up of a combination of coloured aggregate stones and resin which is mixed on-site, cold. The resulting surface is permeable, allowing rain water to pass easily through it, avoiding the surface water problems that can arise with paved patios. Resin bound patios and driveways are also attractive, non-slip, available in a variety of colours, colour fast, relatively maintenance free, long lasting, hardwearing, UV stable and weed resistant, they're in addition incredibly adaptable and can readily incorporate bespoke logos and designs, making them suitable for commercial as well as home use.

Artificial Grass Ferndown

Artificial Lawns Ferndown: Another option that you may want to consider rather than a paved patio is artificial grass, which can be similarly long lasting and low maintenance but can be installed a good deal more cheaply than a stone patio and with less mess. Artificial grass looks the same as real grass, both close up and from a distance, but it doesn't grow and never has to be mowed. If you are on the lookout for a cost effective solution for your precious garden space in Ferndown, then artificial grass might be just the perfect alternative for you. An excessive amount of stone and concrete can look very dull your garden area, the natural green colour of artificial grass is easier on the eye and more soothing. The cost of artificial grass in Ferndown is on a par with when using the cheapest quality paving but less than half the cost of higher end patio slabs.
