After a dismal and wet winter in Scarborough, the garden could be a bit too muddy to walk on, therefore laying down a fabulous new patio would be the best answer to make the garden usable. If you've already got a patio but it is overgrown with weeds and uneven you may very well be contemplating having a new one built or perhaps just lifting up and relaying the existing one if the patio slabs are still in good condition.

Before any actual work begins, you will need to talk things over with the patio builder. This is perceived as the project planning period and it is crucial if your final patio is going to look like you envisioned. This planning conversation may involve such factors as what kind of slabs are to be used, is there a need for site levelling, the preferred location for your patio, where a skip can be positioned for the removal of waste, and are there any drains or trees in the way.

This step of the patio project should include the extraction and disposal of surface materials and any unwanted paving waste, digging up of topsoil to reach the firmer sub-soil, spreading of a sub-base or hardcore and the subsequent compacting and levelling of this material, overlaying with a bedding material for example sharp sand.

Paving the Area: As soon as you have got a flat and solid footing laid down, the patio installation specialist will be able to get on with the laying of the slabs. Provided the area preparation has been correctly done, this phase of the process will be comparatively straightforward and the patio you envisioned will rapidly take shape and you will soon have a superb garden feature that you can enjoy

Hard Landscaping Scarborough: Patios, driveways and paths can all be grouped under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (or occasionally "hardscaping"), which basically means any kind of garden design and architecture fashioned from construction materials, rather than plant related materials such as trees, shrubs and grass, which are called "soft landscaping". To a degree garden furniture may also be described as "hard landscaping".

Patio Re-Grouting Scarborough

Patio Grouting Scarborough: With existing patios one of the main issues is with crumbling grouting or joints. If this occurs your patio can look untidy and no doubt have weeds and grass growing up in between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to ease this issue or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a good non-chemical technique to get rid of weeds. Repairing the grouting can be challenging and the toughest task is to rake out the existing grout which is most likely to be a sand and cement mortar. If your slabs are rocking and loose there is little point replacing the joints as it will not make much difference, and you really need to get the entire thing re-slabbed. If the slabs are reasonably secure and stable you can go ahead and rake out the damaged mortar by using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire patio a thorough cleanup once you're done and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry process while others use a dry brush-in system.

Resin Bound Patios Scarborough: A relatively recent invention that is in the main used for creating driveways in Scarborough, but can equally be used for patios is the resin bound process. A resin bound surface is made up of a combination of resin and aggregate stones which is mixed cold, on-site. The resulting surface is permeable, permitting rain water to pass through it, avoiding most of the flooding issues that can sometimes occur with paved patios. Resin bound patios and driveways are also weed resistant, attractive, non-slip, easy to maintain, available in a variety of colours, UV stable, durable, long lasting and colour fast, they are furthermore extremely adaptable and can incorporate custom designs and logos, making them perfect for commercial as well as residential use.
