Patios Marlow

Marlow Patio Layers (SL7): As the spring appears every year most of us start to think about spending a lot more time outside and obviously the garden is the most obvious place for that to happen. After a wet and dismal winter in Marlow, the garden is likely to be a bit too muddy to do much, so the installation of a nice new patio should be the obvious solution to this issue. If you do already have a patio but it is starting to get out of level and overgrown with weeds you could possibly be considering getting a new one or perhaps just lifting up and relaying the old one if the paving slabs are still sound and in good condition.

Though a modest patio assignment might well be something that you could attempt yourself should you be keen on that type of work, its likely that you'll need to employ a specialist Marlow patio layer to carry out the project on your behalf, especially for complex patios. It is not only the installing of your garden patio that you ought to look at but also the removal and disposal of the waste matter and the introduction of new patio materials. You also need to bear in mind that installing patios is heavy work, especially if the old patio was concreted in place. A big patio slab with a layer of concrete on is going to be rather heavy, therefore you should at the very least find someone to help you lift these, should you decide to do-it-yourself.

Preparing the Area: This step of the patio project will involve the stripping and disposal of surface materials and any unwanted paving waste, extraction of the topsoil layer to get down to the firmer sub-soil, putting in of a hardcore or sub-base and the resulting levelling and tamping of this material, covering with a bedding layer for example sharp sand.

Laying the Paving: When the area has all been got ready your patio specialist will commence putting down the slabs, how this level proceeds depends upon the materials you've chosen, and might be fairly uncomplicated as long as the surface preparation was carried out properly and the base is flat and stable.

Patio Edging Marlow: Dependant upon the style and layout of the patio, you may be able to add a snazzy edging which really finishes a patio off nicely.

Hard Landscaping Marlow: Driveways, pathways and patios are all described by the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (sometimes called "hardscaping"), which simply means any kind of garden architecture and design created using construction materials, rather than plant related materials such as trees, shrubs and grasses, which are known as "soft landscaping". To a certain degree garden furniture could also be described as "hard landscaping". (Tags: Hard Landscaping Marlow)

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Marlow: A more recent innovation that is mainly used for creating driveways in Marlow, but can easily be adapted for patios is the resin bound technique. A resin bound surface is made up of a combination of aggregate stones and resin which can be mixed on-site, cold. The surface is permeable, allowing water to pass easily through it, preventing most of the flooding issues that sometimes arise with paved patios. Resin bound patios are also long lasting, available in lots of colours, easy to maintain, colour fast, UV stable, weed resistant, non-slip, durable and attractive, they're furthermore incredibly adaptable and can incorporate bespoke designs and logos, making them great for business as well as home use.
