Exponents of DIY in Thatcham will probably be eager to have a go at doing this themselves, though putting in a top quality patio isn't as simple as you would think. Smaller patio projects will likely be well within the range of ability of most do-it-yourselfers, though larger more complex patios are better left to the experts. You must also keep in mind that its not just the job of preparing a base and putting down the patio slabs that is necessary, it's also removing and disposing of a significant quantity of soil and rubble and perhaps old patio materials in the case of a replacement. This is going to be awkward and physically demanding and will require the use of a skip, at the very least.

Always ask for a brochure, most reliable patio builders will carry a portfolio of projects they have recently carried out in the Thatcham area. By seeing this brochure you may be able to get a good idea of just what your project will be like when it is complete, this will help you to settle on your design and materials.

Planning Your Project: You might want to check with your chosen patio specialist with regards to specific factors which should be decided during the planning stage, for instance: are there any obstacles to consider such as (trees, manholes etc), easy access to the patio, what patio materials you are using, do you need a gradient away from buildings, what's the perfect position for your patio, what is the patioed area to be used for, does the area need levelling, the accurate measuring of the area to be patioed along with other considerations that your Thatcham patio layer will explain.

Area Preparation: This step of the patio project includes the extraction and disposal of surrounding materials and any old paving waste, extraction of the topsoil layer to get down to the firmer sub-soil, spreading of a sub-base or hardcore and the subsequent tamping and levelling of this material, covering using a bedding material such as sharp sand.

Laying the Paving: Once you've got a robust, flat foundation laid, your patio installer can proceed with the laying the paving. If the preparation of the ground has been done correctly, this step of the process will likely be relatively easy and your dream patio will rapidly start to take shape and shortly you will be gazing upon an awesome outside feature that you can enjoy

Paving Materials: There's a wide selection of materials which may be used for building patios and terraces, among the most widely used are: setts, sandstone, limestone, bricks, slabs, gravel, cobbles, composite blocks, slate, concrete, asphalt, granite and blocks.

Hard Landscaping Thatcham: Patios, driveways and paths are all described by the umbrella term of "hard landscaping", which effectively means any kind of garden design and architecture created using construction materials, rather than plant based materials like trees, shrubs and grass, which are called "soft landscaping". Sometimes garden furniture could also be termed as "hard landscaping". (Tags: Hard Landscaping Thatcham)

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Thatcham: A more modern invention that is predominately used for driveways in Thatcham, but can effectively be used for patios is the resin bound technique. A resin bound surface is made up of a combination of resin and coloured aggregate stones which is mixed on-site, cold. The resulting surface is permeable, allowing rain water to pass easily through it, preventing some of the flooding issues that can sometimes arise with paving slabs. Resin bound patios and driveways are also relatively maintenance free, available in lots of colours, long lasting, colour fast, slip resistant, attractive, UV stable, hardwearing and weed resistant, they're additionally highly versatile and can incorporate customized designs and logos, making them great for commercial as well as private use.

How to Lay a Patio

Patio Sealing Thatcham: Applying sealer is a great way to protect your driveway, paved area, path or patio in Thatcham and is especially beneficial for block paved areas where the sand joints can be eroded whilst cleaning. Sealing prevents this irksome loss of sand which is a typical problem when jetting in particular. This is by no means the only benefit of sealing which can also make the paved area easier and quicker to clean, enhance the colour of your paving slabs or blocks, reduce the necessity for repairs, lengthen the lifespan of your patio or driveway, avert unsightly staining and restrict grass, weed and moss growth. Patio and driveway sealers are water resistant and shouldn't peel or blister, various types are available for different purposes including block paving sealers, tarmac sealers, imprinted concrete sealers and natural stone sealants.

Artificial Lawns Thatcham

Artificial Grass Thatcham: Something that you may want to consider rather than a patio is artificial grass, which is similarly long lasting and low maintenance and can be installed a good deal more cheaply than a paved patio and with less mess. Artificial grass looks similar to real grass, both from afar and close up, but it never has to be mowed and never grows. If you're in need of a cost effective solution for your outside space in Thatcham, then artificial grass could easily be the answer for you. Excessive stone and concrete can give a very drab appearance to your garden area, the natural green colour of artificial grass is easier on the eye and more soothing. The cost of putting in artificial grass in Thatcham is on a par with cheap quality paving slabs but less than half the price of high end patio slabs.
