Planning Your Project: It is advisable to speak with your chosen patio layer concerning certain things that must be decided during the planning stage, for example: does the area need to be levelled, do you require it to slope away from the house, how easy will it be to access the patio, what materials are to be used, where is the perfect location for your patio, are there any obstacles in the way that you need to consider such as (drain covers, trees etc), the measuring the area to be patioed, what is your patio area to be used for and also other factors which your Sedgley patio layer will point out.

This stage of the patio project includes the removal and disposal of surrounding debris and any old paving waste, digging up of topsoil to reach the more stable sub-soil, spreading of a sub-base or hardcore material and the resulting levelling and tamping of this material, overlaying with a bedding layer for example sharp sand.

The Laying of the Paving: Once you've got a robust, flat foundation laid, your patio installer can press on with the laying the paving slabs. As long as the area preparation has been done properly, this next phase of the procedure should prove to be pretty painless and the patio you envisioned will quickly take shape and you should soon have a beautiful outside feature that you can enjoy and appreciate

Patio Edging Sedgley: Although it will depend on the planned layout and style of the patio, you may be able to incorporate a snazzy edging which really finishes a patio off nicely. You can purchase several types of patio edging, although they won't all be appropriate for your specific patio finish, so choose carefully if you want to go for an edging. You could use a blockwork/brick edging, a rounded kerbstone edging, a coping stone edging, a wavy stone edging or a short brick wall edging. Check with your Sedgley patio layer about the available options and find out what they believe will look best with your style of patio. They might have pictures of patio edgings they've used on previous projects.

Materials Used for Paving: There's a vast range of materials which can be used for building patios and terraces, amongst the most popular are: granite, concrete, asphalt, slate, limestone, cobbles, composite materials, setts, gravel, bricks, slabs, sandstone and blocks.

Driveways Sedgley: While you are getting a new patio laid you may need to replace your driveway as well. Some patio builders in Sedgley will also be prepared to tackle this job for you, and it is often better to do this simultaneously so that you only generate one lot of mess and you will be able to use just one skip for the removal of waste. This of course will be dependent on your budget and whether it will stretch to this extra work, but it is certainly worth looking into.

Hard Landscaping Sedgley: Patios, driveways and paths all come under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping", which quite simply means any type of garden architecture and design which uses construction materials, in contrast to plant related materials such as shrubs, trees and grasses, which are generally called "soft landscaping". In some instances garden furniture may also be termed as "hard landscaping".

Patio Pressure Cleaning Sedgley

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Sedgley: If you are building a complete new patio in Sedgley then you will likely not be thinking about patio cleaning, though you'll need to do this on a regular basis so as to keep your new patio in the best possible shape. If you are extending or adding to an existing patio then it might be a good idea to have those previously laid patio slabs cleaned so that they blend in with the new slabs. Normally the cleaning of patios is done by or chemical cleaning and local Sedgley patio cleaning companies will likely offer both services. Professionals use exceptionally high pressure equipment which is far better than the type of jet washer many people have in their garage.

Patio Grouting Sedgley: With old patios one of the main issues is with crumbling and cracked joints or grouting. When this occurs your patio can look awful and probably have grass and weeds poking up between the slabs. You could continually use weedkiller to ease this annoying problem or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is an effective way to eradicate weeds without using chemicals. Replacing the grouting can be a big job and the toughest thing is to rake out the old grout which is probably going to be a sand and cement mix. If the patio slabs are loose and moving there is little point re-doing the joints as it won't solve the problem, and you actually need to have the entire thing re-slabbed. If the slabs are pretty firm and stable you can go ahead and rake out the damaged mortar by utilizing a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole patio a really good clean-up when you're done and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry method while others use a dry brush-in technique.

Flagstone Patios Sedgley: Of the many materials that can be used for creating a patio, flagstone is considered among the best. There are a number of reasons why you need to think about this option for your patio in Sedgley, and these include the fact that flagstones are long lasting and durable, grasses or plants can be grown between the stones to soften the look of the patio, they come in rich colours with innate variations, flagstone patios can be laid dry to provide a permeable surface therefore avoiding standing water, they are perfect for "free form" patios, they have distinctive, irregular shapes and textures and flagstones look more natural. These types of patio have much appeal mostly because flagstones are naturally sourced stones which are quarried and cut from limestone, bluestone, travertine, slate and sandstone.

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Sedgley: A relatively recent invention which is primarily used for driveways in Sedgley, but can equally be adapted for patios is the resin bound system. A resin bound surface is made up of a combination of aggregate stones and resin which is mixed on-site, cold. The surface is permeable, enabling water to pass easily through it, reducing the flooding issues that can occur with paved patios. Resin bound patios are also durable, UV stable, non-slip, long lasting, attractive, available in a variety of colours, easy to maintain, weed resistant and colour fast, they are in addition extremely adaptable and can readily incorporate customized designs and logos, making them great for commercial as well as private use.

Artificial Grass Sedgley

Artificial grass looks like genuine grass, both close up and from a distance, but it never has to be mowed and never grows. If you are searching for a more economical solution for your outside space in Sedgley, then artificial grass could just be the answer for you. Large areas concrete and stone can give a very stark appearance to your garden, the natural green colour of artificial grass is more soothing and easy on the eye.
