The Planning of Your Project: It's best to check with your patio contractor concerning certain factors that should be decided in the planning stage, such as: what is your patioed area going to be used for, does it need to slope away from the house, what materials are to be used, easy access to the patio, are there any obstacles in the way (drains, trees etc), what's the perfect position for your patio, does the area need to be levelled, the measuring the area to be patioed and also other considerations which your Rotherham patio layer will point out.

Area Preparation: This step of the patio project should include the removing and disposal of surface materials and any existing paving waste, digging up of topsoil to reach the more stable sub-soil, putting in of a hardcore or sub-base and the subsequent pressing down and levelling of this material, covering with a bedding material such as sharp sand.

The Laying of the Paving: Once you have got a firm and level footing laid down, the patio installation specialist will be able to press on with the laying the paving. If the area preparation has been done correctly, this stage of the project should prove to be fairly straightforward and the patio of your dreams will quickly take shape and you should soon be gazing upon a beautiful outdoor feature where you can relax and entertain

Patio Edgings Rotherham: Dependant upon the style and layout of the patio, you might be able to use a snazzy edging which will really finish the job off nicely. You can buy several types of edgings for patios, although they will not all be appropriate for your specific patio finish, so choose carefully if you decide to go with an edging. You could use a coping stone edging, a short brick wall edging, a kerbstone edging, a blockwork/brick edging or a contoured stone edging. Check with your Rotherham patio installer about the available options and what they consider will go best with your patio. They might have images of patio edgings they've used in the past.

Materials for Paving: There's a diverse selection of materials which you may use for building a garden patio, amongst the most popular are: concrete, granite, sandstone, cobbles, composite materials, limestone, slabs, bricks, asphalt, setts, gravel, slate and blocks.

Patio Slabs/Paving Slabs Rotherham: Paving or patio slabs come in all shapes and sizes, their prices can vary widely as well. Which kind of slabs you use for your patio may be influenced by personal taste, your budget, current fashions and whether you need to match pre-existing materials. The favourite patio slabs used in Rotherham gardens nowadays are manufactured from concrete or sandstone and these can be obtained in local DIY outlets and garden centres. Prices (at the time of writing) start from roughly £3 up to £15 each 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 22-38mm.

Hard Landscaping Rotherham: Patios, paths and driveways all come under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping", which quite simply refers to any type of garden architecture and design made of construction materials, as opposed to plant related materials such as grasses, trees and shrubs, which are generally referred to as "soft landscaping". Sometimes garden furniture can also be termed as "hard landscaping". (Tags: Hard Landscaping Rotherham)

Patio Grouting Rotherham: With existing patios one of the chief problems is with crumbling joints or grouting. When this happens your patio area may look untidy and probably have weeds and grass sprouting up between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to alleviate the issue or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is a superb solution to kill weeds without using chemicals. Re-doing the grouting can be a tricky job and the toughest task is to remove the old grout which is most likely a cement and sand mortar. If your patio slabs are loose and moving replacing the joints is pointless since it will not have much effect, and you really need to have the whole thing re-done. If your slabs are secure you can rake out the damaged mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire area a good clean-up once you're finished and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in technique.

Resin Bound Patios and Driveways Rotherham: A more modern innovation that is primarily used for driveways in Rotherham, but can easily be used for patios is the resin bound system. A resin bound surface is made up of a combination of resin and aggregate stones which can be mixed on-site, cold. The finished surface is permeable, enabling rain water to easily pass through it, avoiding most of the flooding issues that often arise with paved patios. Resin bound patios are also attractive, colour fast, non-slip, easy to maintain, durable, long lasting, weed resistant, available in lots of colours and UV stable, they are in addition incredibly adaptive and can easily incorporate customized designs and logos, making them suitable for business as well as home use.

How to Lay a Patio

Driveway and Patio Sealing Rotherham: Sealing is a good way to protect your path, driveway, paved area or patio in Rotherham and is especially effective for areas of block paving where the sand joints can easily be eroded whilst cleaning. Sealing prevents this irksome loss of sand which is a frequent issue when jetting in particular. This isn't the sole benefit of sealing which can also extend the life of your patio or driveway, reduce the risk of future repairs, restrict the growth of moss, weed and grass, make the area easier and quicker to clean, prevent staining and enhance the look of your patio slabs or blocks. Pavement and patio sealers are water resistant and shouldn't peel or blister, various types are available on the market for different finishes including natural stone sealants, imprinted concrete sealers, tarmac restorers and block paving sealants.
