Some patio builders in Haslingden will also handle this task for you, and it is often advantageous to get it done simultaneously so that you only generate one lot of mess and you will be able to use just one skip for the waste removal.

Hard Landscaping Haslingden: What is often called "hard landscaping" is the introduction of solid shapes which give your garden form and structure. Fountains, fences and pergolas are looked upon as "hard" landscaping, as are drives, patios and pathways, which are all made out of "hard" construction materials. Elements made from plant related materials are classified as "soft landscaping", which covers lawns, trees, shrubs and mulch. At a push, I guess you could even think of garden furniture as being "hard" landscaping.

Patio Grouting Haslingden: Grout and joints that are crumbling or cracked is the main problem that you will come across with older, pre-existing patios. When this occurs the patio may look awful and no doubt have grass and weeds poking up between the slabs. To tackle this, you could pour boiling water on the weeds which is a good solution to destroy weeds without chemicals, or alternatively you could employ an effective weedkiller. Replacing the grout is not simple and the toughest task is to get rid of the old grout which is most likely to be a sand and cement mortar. Having the whole patio re-done is the only real solution if your paving slabs are loose and unstable, as correcting the joints alone will not solve the issue. Clearing away the damaged mortar by utilizing a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade, is going to be the next measure if your slabs are pretty secure. You'll be able to carry out the re-grouting with a resin or polymeric grout, as soon as the joints have been diligently cleaned. Some of these types of grout are applied using the wet slurry procedure, while others use the dry brush-in approach. Most specialist Haslingden patio layers will tackle patio repointing, so get hold of one near you for an estimate.
