Patios Yateley

Yateley Patio Layers (GU46): When springtime appears every year most of you start to think about spending more time outside and of course the garden (for those who have one) is the most common place for that to occur. After a gloomy and wet winter in Yateley, your garden might be a bit too muddy to do much, therefore installing an attractive new patio is the best answer to make the garden more functional. If you've already got a patio but it has become overrun with weeds and out of level you may be contemplating having a new one built or perhaps taking up and re-laying the existing one if the patio slabs are still sound and in good condition.

Whilst a limited patio project might be something you could attempt on your own if you are conversant with this sort of undertaking, it is more likely to be the case that you may need to locate a competent Yateley patio layer to complete the job on your behalf, especially for more substantial patios. It is not simply the installation of your garden patio that you have to take into account but the removing and disposal of the resulting waste plus the introduction of the required patio products. You should also bear in mind that installing patios is fairly heavy work, particularly if the existing patio was concreted in position. A big paving slab with a lump of concrete on is going to be rather weighty, therefore you should at the very least get someone to assist you in lifting these, should you decide to do-it-yourself.

A skilled Yateley patio builder will give you advice on what you may and may not have, suggest and order correct materials and produce an effective patio design for you to compliment your available area.

From this brochure you should be able to get a good idea of exactly what your project will look like when it is finished, this enables you to pick out your preferred layout and materials.

Planning The Project: You need to check with your patio expert with regards to things that have to be decided during the planning stage, for example: easy access to the patio, the measuring the area to be patioed, does it need to slope away from buildings, what is the patioed area to be used for, does the area need levelling, where is the perfect location for your patio, are there any obstacles to consider such as (trees, drain covers etc), what patio materials are you planning to use as well as other issues which your Yateley patio specialist will point out.

Preparation of the Area: This phase of the patio project will involve the extraction and disposal of surrounding materials and old paving waste, removal of topsoil to get down to the firmer sub-soil, putting in of a sub-base or hardcore and the subsequent levelling and tamping of this material, overlaying with a bedding layer like sharp sand.

Paving the Area: When everything has been got ready the patio contractor will begin putting down the slabs, precisely how this level proceeds depends upon the types of materials you have picked, and should be reasonably uncomplicated if the surface preparation was carried out correctly and the base is sound and level.

Materials for Paving: There is a vast range of materials that you can use for building patios and terraces, among the most popular are: asphalt, bricks, slate, slabs, setts, sandstone, gravel, composite materials, cobbles, concrete, granite, limestone and blocks.

Patio Edging Yateley: Although it will depend on the style and layout of the patio, you may be able to include a smart edging which will really finish the job off nicely. You can buy numerous types of patio edgings, although they will not all be suitable for your particular patio finish, so be certain to choose carefully if you opt to go for an edging. You could pick a blockwork/brick edging, a coping stone edging, a wavy stone edging, a low brick wall edging or a rounded kerbstone edging. Ask your Yateley patio installer about the options and find out what they believe will best go with your patio. They will probably have photos of patio edgings they have used on previous projects.

Patio Pressure Cleaning Yateley

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Yateley: If you're building a complete new patio in Yateley then you'll likely not immediately be thinking about patio cleaning, although you will need to do this on a fairly regular basis so as to keep your new patio looking in the best possible condition.

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Yateley: A relatively recent innovation that is in the main used for driveways in Yateley, but can easily be adapted for patios is the resin bound process. A resin bound surface is made up of a mixture of resin and aggregate stones which can be mixed cold, on-site. The resulting surface is permeable, allowing rain water to easily pass through it, reducing most of the flooding issues that can sometimes occur with paved areas. Resin bound patios and driveways are also easy to maintain, durable, weed resistant, long lasting, non-slip, attractive, available in lots of colours, colour fast and UV stable, they are furthermore incredibly versatile and can readily incorporate custom logos and designs, making them ideal for business as well as home use.

Problems With Yateley Patios: All through this site we have covered many of the problems that can affect an old patio, but to review, here are the main problems which are likely to occur with a patio: dirty patio slabs, the staining of patio slabs, loose or unstable patio slabs, patio edgings collapsing, damaged or cracked slabs, standing water due to poor drainage, sunken patio slabs, weed growth in the joints, slabs covered in lichen, algae and moss, trip hazards due to uneven slabs.

Artificial Lawns Yateley

Artificial Lawns Yateley: Another option that you might want to consider rather than a paved patio is artificial grass, which can be equally long lasting and low maintenance but can be installed a good deal more cheaply than a patio and with less disruption and mess. Artificial grass looks the same as real grass, both close up and from a distance, but it doesn't grow and never has to be mowed. If you're in need of a more economical solution for your garden space in Yateley, then artificial grass might be just the perfect alternative for you. A lot of stone and concrete can give a very drab appearance to your garden, the natural green colour of artificial grass is easier on the eye and much more calming. The cost of putting in artificial grass in Yateley is similar to doing it with cheap quality paving but less than half the price of higher end patio slabs.
