Hard Landscaping Walton-on-Thames: Pathways, patios and driveways are all described by the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (occasionally called "hardscaping"), which in a nut-shell means any kind of garden architecture and design created using construction materials, in contrast to plant related materials such as trees, shrubs and grasses, which are normally referred to as "soft landscaping".

Patio Re-Grouting Walton-on-Thames

Patio Grouting Walton-on-Thames: With existing patios one of the main problems is with cracked and crumbling joints or grouting. When this occurs the patio may look very messy and probably have weeds and grass sprouting up in between the slabs. You could constantly use weedkiller to relieve this problem or dowse the weeds with boiling water which is a very good solution to kill weeds without using chemicals. Repairing the grout isn't easy and the hardest job is to rake out the existing grout which will probably be a sand and cement mix. If your slabs are loose and unstable there is little point repairing the joints since it won't have much effect, and you actually need to get the entire patio re-done. If your slabs are relatively stable and firm you can press on and hook out the old mortar by utilizing a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire area a thorough clean-up once you're finished and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry method.
