Patios Neath

Neath Patio Layers (SA10): As soon as the spring appears each year most of you contemplate spending much more time outside and obviously the garden is the most obvious place for that to happen. After a windy and wet winter in Neath, the garden could be a bit too muddy to walk on, so putting down a splendid new patio should be the best solution to this setback. If you've already got a patio but its starting to get wonky and overrun with weeds you could be contemplating having a new one or perhaps just lifting and re-laying the old one if the patio slabs are still in a good state of repair.

Whilst a small patio assignment may well be something you could accomplish yourself if you're confident in that type of work, it is more likely to be the case that you will have to employ a competent Neath patio layer to complete the project on your behalf, particularly for complex patios. It isn't simply the installing of your garden patio you need to look at but the removing and disposal of the waste plus the introduction of new patio materials. It's also wise bear in mind that laying patios can be heavy work, particularly when the existing slabs were fixed with concrete. A large sized patio slab with a lump of concrete on is likely to be rather heavy, therefore at least ask somebody to help you lift these, if you decide to tackle it yourself.

From this portfolio you should be able to get an idea of just what your project will be like when its complete, this will aid you to decide on your preferred materials and design.

Planning The Project: You will need to talk to your patio specialist in relation to certain things that should be decided in the planning stage, for instance: does it need to slope away from the property, what materials are to be used, the measuring the area to be patioed, are there any obstacles to think about such as (trees, drain covers etc), easy access to the patio, does the area need to be levelled, what is the perfect location for your patio, what is the patio area going to be used for along with other factors which your Neath patio contractor will point out.

Preparing the Area: This phase of the patio project will involve the extraction and disposal of surrounding materials and any existing paving waste, extraction of topsoil to get down to the more stable sub-soil, spreading of a sub-base or hardcore and the subsequent pressing down and levelling of this material, covering using a bedding layer like sharp sand.

Laying the Paving: When everything has been got ready your patio contractor will commence putting down the slabs, precisely how this level proceeds depends upon the types of materials you've selected, and should be relatively uncomplicated as long as the area preparation was done properly and the resulting base is stable and flat.

Materials Used for Paving: There is a broad variety of materials which can be used for building a patio, amongst the most widely used are: concrete, sandstone, gravel, slabs, composite blocks, limestone, setts, granite, cobbles, slate, asphalt, bricks and blocks.

Patio Edging Neath: Depending on the layout and style of the patio, you may be able to use a snazzy edging which really finishes a patio off nicely. You can purchase many kinds of edgings for patios, although they will not all be suitable for your specific patio finish, so be sure to choose carefully if you opt to go with an edging. You could pick a contoured stone edging, a coping stone edging, a kerbstone edging, a blockwork/brick edging or a low brick wall edging. Talk to your Neath patio installer about the available options and what they believe will go best with your patio. They could have pictures of patio edgings they've used on past jobs.

Patio Slabs/Paving Slabs Neath: Patio slabs or paving slabs come in all shapes and sizes, the prices can vary widely too. What type of slabs you select for your patio could be dependant upon personal preference, the need to match existing materials, your planned budget and current fashions. The favourite patio slabs laid in Neath gardens nowadays are made of concrete or sandstone and a wide variety of these can be obtained in garden centres and DIY outlets. Prices (in 2018) start from roughly £3 up to £15 though they can be sold in bulk packs of 20 or more. Typical sizes are: 300x300mm, 450x450mm and 600x600mm, the thickness can vary from 22-38mm.

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Neath: A more recent invention which is in the main used for driveways in Neath, but can easily be adapted 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 cold, on-site. The surface is permeable, enabling water to easily pass through it, preventing most of the surface water problems that may occur with paved patios. Resin bound patios are also long lasting, non-slip, available in lots of colours, hardwearing, colour fast, UV stable, weed resistant, relatively maintenance free and attractive, they're furthermore highly adaptable and can readily incorporate customized logos and designs, making them great for commercial as well as private use.

Artificial Grass Neath

Artificial Grass Neath: Something which you may wish to look at instead of a paved patio is artificial grass, which can be similarly low maintenance, long lasting but can be installed a good deal more cheaply than a paved patio and with less mess and disruption. Artificial grass looks similar to real grass, both from afar and close up, but it never needs mowing and doesn't grow. If you are looking for a more economical solution for your precious garden space in Neath, then artificial grass might be just the alternative for you. Large areas stone and concrete can look very drab your garden area, the green colour of artificial grass is easier on the eye and much more calming. The cost of installing artificial grass in Neath is similar to doing it with the cheapest quality paving slabs but less than half the cost of higher end paving slabs.
