Patios Morley

Morley Patio Layers (LS27): The minute the spring appears each year most people have thoughts about spending much more time out of the house and obviously the garden is the most obvious place to achieve this. After a gloomy and wet winter in Morley, the garden will likely be a bit too muddy to do much, so laying down a brand new patio could be the obvious solution to this issue. If you've already got a patio but it is covered with weeds and out of level you could be thinking about having a new one laid down or perhaps just lifting and re-laying the old one if the slabs are still sound and fit for purpose.

Whilst a small patio assignment might be a task that you could undertake by yourself if you are confident in this kind of undertaking, it is likely that you will have to search for a specialist Morley patio layer to do the project on your behalf, particularly for more complicated patios.

Which slabs you choose for your patio may be dependant upon whether you need to match existing materials, current fashions, your budget and personal tastes. The most favoured patio slabs laid in Morley gardens today are made from sandstone or concrete and a variety of these can easily be bought in DIY merchants and garden centres. Prices (in 2018) start at about £3 up to £15 though they can be sold in bulk packs. Typical sizes are: 300mm x 300mm, 450mm x 450mm and 600mm x 600mm, the thickness can vary from 22mm to 38mm.

Hard Landscaping Morley: Patios, paths and driveways all come under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping", which in a nut-shell signifies any kind of garden architecture and design which uses construction materials, rather than plant based materials such as grasses, shrubs and trees, which are known as "soft landscaping". In many instances garden furniture is also termed as "hard landscaping".

Resin Bound Patios Morley: A relatively recent invention that is predominately used for driveways in Morley, but can easily be used for patios is the resin bound system. A resin bound surface is made up of a mixture of resin and coloured aggregate stones which is mixed on-site, cold. The resulting surface is permeable, permitting rain water to easily pass through it, reducing most of the flooding problems that may arise with paving slabs. Resin bound patios are also long lasting, colour fast, weed resistant, available in lots of colours, relatively maintenance free, hardwearing, slip resistant, attractive and UV stable, they are in addition incredibly adaptive and can readily incorporate custom designs and logos, making them suitable for commercial as well as private use.
