Hard Landscaping Whittlesey: Patios, driveways and paths can all be grouped under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping", which effectively means any type of garden architecture and design fashioned from construction materials, as opposed to plant related materials such as grasses, shrubs and trees, which are normally referred to as "soft landscaping".

Flagstone Patios Whittlesey: Of all the materials which you can use for constructing a patio, flagstone is considered among the best.

Patio and driveway sealers are waterproof and do not peel or blister, various types are available for different materials including imprinted concrete sealants, block paving sealers, tarmac restorers and natural stone sealants.
