Hard Landscaping Rushden: Patios, driveways and paths are all described by the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (occasionally called "hardscaping"), which fundamentally means any sort of garden design and architecture made of construction materials, rather than plant based materials like trees, grasses and shrubs, which are called "soft landscaping". To a certain degree garden furniture is also termed as "hard landscaping".

Flagstone Patios Rushden: Of all the materials that you can use for creating a patio, flagstone is certainly one of the best. There are numerous reasons why you should think about this option for your patio in Rushden, and these include the fact that flagstones come in subtle shades with natural variations, flagstones have distinctive shapes and textured surfaces, plants can be grown between the stones to soften the look, flagstone patios are durable and last for many years, flagstones can be laid dry to provide a permeable surface, flagstones are ideal for "free form" patios and flagstone patios look more organic and natural.

Resin Bound Patios Rushden: A more contemporary innovation which is primarily used for driveways in Rushden, but can also be adapted for patios is the resin bound technique. A resin bound surface comprises a combination of coloured aggregate stones and resin which is mixed on-site, cold. The surface is permeable, allowing water to easily pass through it, reducing the surface water problems that occasionally occur with paving slabs. Resin bound patios and driveways are also colour fast, long lasting, weed resistant, relatively maintenance free, available in different colours, attractive, durable, UV stable and non-slip, they are additionally highly versatile and can easily incorporate custom designs and logos, making them great for business as well as residential use.

How to Lay a Patio

Driveway and Patio Sealing Rushden: Applying sealer is the ideal way to protect your path, paved area, patio or driveway in Rushden and can be extremely effective for block paved areas where the sand joints can easily be eroded whilst cleaning. Sealing stops this loss of sand which can be a regular issue when jetting in particular. This is by no means the only benefit of sealing which can also make the paved area quicker and easier to clean, restrict the growth of moss, grass and weed, extend the life of your driveway or patio, reduce the need for future repairs, avert unsightly staining and improve the colour and look of your paving slabs or blocks. Patio and driveway sealants are water resistant and shouldn't blister or peel, various types are available on the market for different finishes including block paving sealers, natural stone sealers, tarmac sealers and imprinted concrete sealants.
