Fans of DIY in Fleet will likely be impatient to have a go at doing this themselves, although putting in a decent quality patio isn't as straightforward as you'd think. Little patios will probably fall within the skillset of most do-it-yourselfers, though the larger more complex patios are best left to the pros. You should also bear in mind that its not only a case of preparing a base and laying the slabs that is involved, it is also removing and disposing of significant quantities of earth and perhaps previously used patio waste if the project is a replacement. This kind of work is liable to be awkward and hard going and will almost certainly require the use of a skip.

By seeing this brochure you ought to be able to get an idea of precisely what your patio project will be like when its done, this will aid you to decide on your materials and layout.

Planning Your Project: You have to confer with your chosen patio specialist with regards to certain factors that must be decided during the planning stage, for instance: easy access to the patio, what is the patio area to be used for, what's the perfect location for your patio, do you need it to slope away from buildings, the accurate measuring of the area to be patioed, does the area need levelling out, are there any obstacles to consider such as (trees, drains etc), what materials are to be used and also other concerns that your Fleet patio contractor will point out.

This phase of the patio project will involve the removal and disposal of surrounding materials and unwanted paving waste, removal of topsoil to reach the firmer sub-soil, spreading of a sub-base or hardcore and the subsequent pressing down and levelling of this material, covering with a bedding material like sharp sand.

The Laying of the Paving: After you've got a stable, level foundation laid down, your patio contractor is able to move on to the laying the paving slabs. If the area preparation has been correctly done, this next phase of the project ought to be quite trouble-free and your patio will rapidly begin to take shape and soon you should have a marvelous garden feature that you can take pleasure in

Patio Slabs/Paving Slabs Fleet: Paving slabs or patio slabs come in all manner of shapes and sizes, the prices can vary widely too. Which sort of slabs you select for your patio might be determined by current trends, your allowed budget, personal taste and whether you need to match existing materials. The most favoured patio slabs laid in Fleet today are manufactured from concrete or sandstone and these are readily available in garden centres and DIY stores. Prices (at the time of writing) start at about £3 up to £15 though they're usually sold in bulk packs of twenty or more. Typical sizes are: 300mm x 300mm, 450mm x 450mm and 600mm x 600mm, the thickness can vary from 22mm to 38mm.

Driveway Installation Fleet: When you are getting a new patio laid you may also need to replace your driveway too. Some patio builders in Fleet will be happy to handle this job for you, and it might be better to do this at the same time so you only generate one lot of mess and can use the same skip for the removal of waste.

Patio Cleaning Fleet

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Fleet: If you're installing a complete new patio in Fleet then you'll probably not be currently worried about patio cleaning, although you'll need to be doing this on a regular basis in order to keep your new patio in the best possible shape. If you happen to be adding to or extending an existing patio then you might want to have the old patio slabs properly cleaned so that they match as closely as possible with the new patio slabs that are being laid. Generally the cleaning of patios is achieved by chemical cleaning or high-pressure water jetting and most local Fleet patio cleaning companies will likely provide both services. Professionals use very high pressure equipment which is superior to the type of jet washer that many people have in their shed or garage. (Tags: Patio Cleaning Fleet, Jet Washing Patios Fleet)

Resin Bound Patios Fleet: A more contemporary innovation that is mainly used for creating driveways in Fleet, but can also be adapted for patios is the resin bound technique. A resin bound surface comprises a combination of coloured aggregate stones and resin which can be mixed on-site, cold. The finished surface is permeable, enabling water to pass easily through it, preventing most of the surface water issues that often occur with paved areas. Resin bound patios and driveways are also non-slip, relatively maintenance free, available in different colours, weed resistant, hardwearing, colour fast, long lasting, UV stable and attractive, they are furthermore extremely adaptive and can readily incorporate customized logos and designs, making them ideal for business as well as home use.

Issues With Fleet Patios: Throughout this website I have addressed many of the issues that can occur with an old patio, but to reiterate, here are the chief issues that are liable to occur with a patio: trip hazards due to uneven slabs, stained patio slabs, slabs covered in moss, lichen and algae, sunken slabs, slabs which have become loose or unstable, dirty patio slabs, cracked or damaged slabs, weed growth in the joints, poor drainage, patio edgings collapsing.

Patio Furniture Fleet: As soon as you've finished your patio you'll have to buy some comfortable patio furniture to complement your newly created outdoor space. There is a lot to consider when picking patio furniture and you ought to put as much thought into this process as you would acquiring furniture for the inside of your house.

It might be a neat approach to continue your colour scheme from the inside to the outside, this helps to maintain the natural flow of the space.
