Patios Plymouth

Plymouth Patio Layers (PL1): As springtime appears every year most of you start to think about spending a lot more time out in the fresh air and of course the garden is the most common place to achieve this. After a wet and windy winter in Plymouth, the garden might be a bit of a quagmire, therefore laying an attractive new patio could be the easiest solution to this setback. If you've already got a patio but it is wonky and overrun with weeds you might possibly be thinking about having a new one laid or perhaps getting the existing one re-laid if the slabs are still fit for purpose.

Whilst a limited patio assignment might well be something that you could do yourself if you are able in this type of undertaking, its likely that you'll need to employ a skilled Plymouth patio layer to manage the project for you, particularly for more complicated patios. It isn't only the installing of your garden patio that you ought to think about but also the removing and disposal of the waste matter and the introduction of the required patio products.

A qualified Plymouth patio layer should be able to advise you on exactly what you should and shouldn't have, suggest and supply the right materials and produce the best patio design for you to compliment your available area. Always ask for a brochure, any decent patio contractor will have a portfolio of patio work they have previously accomplished in the Plymouth area. By using this brochure you may be able to get a good idea of precisely what your job will look like when its completed, this will assist you to determine your materials and layout.

Project Planning: You'll want to confer with your chosen patio specialist with regards to specific factors which must be decided in the planning stage, for instance: what is the patio area going to be used for, how easy will it be to access the patio, what's the perfect location for your patio, do you need it to slope away from the house, does the area need to be levelled, are there any obstacles in the way (trees, drain covers etc), the accurate measuring of the area to be patioed, what materials you are using along with other matters which your Plymouth patio specialist will point out.

Area Preparation: This stage of the patio project should include the extraction and disposal of surrounding debris and any old paving waste, removal of the topsoil layer to get down to the more stable sub-soil, spreading of a hardcore or sub-base and the resulting tamping and levelling of this material, overlaying with a bedding material for instance sharp sand.

Paving the Area: When everything is got ready the patio builder will start laying the patio slabs, precisely how this level proceeds depends upon the exact materials you opted for, and will be quite straightforward if the ground preparation was executed properly and the final base is stable and flat.

Patio Edging Plymouth: Dependant upon the layout and style of the patio, you might possibly be able to put in a smart edging which really gives a patio that professional finish. There are numerous types of patio edging, although they will not all be appropriate for your particular patio finish, so choose carefully if you opt to go with an edging. You could have a kerbstone edging, a coping stone edging, a blockwork/brick edging, a contoured stone edging or a low brick wall edging. Talk to your Plymouth patio installer regarding the available options and find out what they consider will look best with your patio. They may have pictures of patio edgings they have used on other projects.

Materials: You will find a wide array of materials which you may use for building a patio, amongst the most popular are: granite, slabs, concrete, gravel, composite blocks, slate, cobbles, setts, limestone, bricks, sandstone, asphalt and blocks.

Patio Grouting Plymouth: With existing patios one of the chief issues is with crumbling grouting or joints. If this occurs the patio area may look messy and have weeds and grass growing up between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to ease this annoying problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is an excellent solution to eradicate weeds without chemicals. Re-doing the grout can be challenging and the toughest job is to remove the old grout which is probably going to be a cement and sand mix. If your paving slabs are loose and moving it is pointless re-doing the joints as it is unlikely to make much difference, and you actually need to get the whole patio re-done. If the slabs are pretty firm and stable you can go ahead and rake out the damaged mortar with a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire patio a thorough clean-up once you are done and re-grout the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry process. Most specialist patio layers in Plymouth will happily help you with patio repointing, so contact one near you for a quote.

Resin Bound Patios and Driveways Plymouth: A relatively recent invention which is predominately used for creating driveways in Plymouth, but can also be adapted for patios is the resin bound process. A resin bound surface is made up of a combination of coloured aggregate stones and resin which is mixed cold, on-site. The finished surface is permeable, permitting rain water to easily pass through it, preventing the flooding problems that can occur with paved areas. Resin bound patios are also slip resistant, long lasting, easy to maintain, attractive, available in different colours, colour fast, UV stable, weed resistant and hardwearing, they are furthermore extremely versatile and can readily incorporate customized logos and designs, making them suitable for commercial as well as home use.

Patio Sealing Plymouth: Applying sealant is a good way to preserve your paved area, patio, driveway or path in Plymouth and is especially effective for block paved areas where the sand can easily be eroded from the joints whilst cleaning. Sealing helps prevent this frustrating sand loss which can be a regular issue when water jetting in particular. This isn't the sole benefit of sealing which will also restrict the growth of moss, grass and weed, make the area quicker and easier to clean, enhance the look of your paving blocks or slabs, reduce the need for repairs in the future, prevent unsightly staining and extend the life of your patio or driveway. Patio and pavement sealers are waterproof and do not peel or blister, various products can be purchased for different purposes including imprinted concrete sealers, natural stone sealants, tarmac restorers and block paving sealants.

Artificial Grass Plymouth

Artificial Lawns Plymouth: Something which you may wish to consider instead of a patio is artificial grass, which is equally low maintenance, long lasting but can be installed considerably more cheaply than a patio and with less mess and disruption. Artificial grass looks the same as genuine grass, both from a distance and close up, but it never grows and never needs mowing. If you're looking for a more cost effective solution for your outside space in Plymouth, then artificial grass might be just the perfect alternative for you. Excessive concrete and stone can look very stark in your garden, the green colour of artificial grass is more soothing and easier on the eye.
