Before work starts, you will have to talk things over with your patio installer. This would be thought of as the project planning stage and it's vital if your finished patio is going to meet your needs. This planning conversation must include such matters as where can a skip be positioned, are there drains in the way, what kind of paving slabs are to be used, does the site need levelling, and the preferred location.

Correctly preparing the area where the patio is going to be placed is critical if the final result is to be satisfactory. This preparation should include removing any turf and topsoil to a suitable level, shoveling on a 50 to 80mm layer of hardcore, compacting this down with a plate compacter and finally giving it a 25mm covering of sharp sand.

The Laying of the Paving: As soon as you have a level, firm base laid, your patio installer will be able to move on to the laying the paving. So long as the preparation of the ground has been done correctly, this step of the process is likely to be reasonably easy and your patio will rapidly begin to take shape and you will shortly have a marvelous garden space that you can enjoy

Materials: There are numerous different materials from which a garden patio can be crafted and the most popular that you'll come across are composite slabs, cobbles, slabs, limestone, sandstone, slate, setts, granite, gravel, asphalt, bricks, blocks and concrete.

Driveway Installation Dunbar

Driveway Pavers Dunbar (EH42)

Driveways Dunbar: When you're getting a new patio laid you might need to renew your driveway too. The vast majority of Dunbar patio builders will also handle this job, and it is often advantageous to do this at the same time so you only generate one lot of mess and can use the same skip for the removal of waste, thus saving yourself time, money and hassle.

That being said, you'll still need to think about whether your allocated budget will cover this supplemental work.

Hard Landscaping Dunbar

Hard Landscaping Dunbar: Whenever you hear the expression "hard landscaping" (or "hardscaping"), it denotes outside features such as driveways, pathways and patios, together with any sort of garden design and architecture created with construction materials. The term "soft landscaping" refers to features made from plant based materials like grass, trees and shrubs. To a certain degree garden furniture is also described as "hard landscaping".

Deck or Patio - Which is Better?

Decking or Patio Dunbar?

You've identified a place in your garden in Dunbar that's the perfect position for relaxing outdoors, and you would like to install a patio or deck. But, which suits your purposes best?

If it's down to initial expense, then decking wins hands down. Like for like, decking is quicker to install and cheaper than a similar sized patio. Over the years the maintenance costs for wooden decking can be more expensive, however much of this can be reduced with the help of rot resistant, composite materials. There will be routine annual maintenance on both decks and patios; painting or staining, sealing surfaces etc, which is essential to keep them in tip-top condition.

If you prefer a hard wearing and durable area, that is where patios come out ahead. Such hard surfaces should last a lifetime, and even if a stone cracks or breaks, it's not going to impact on the overall structure of the patio and can quickly be repaired or exchanged. This is not the case for a damaged deck plank, which will create a weakened area in the decking causing a risk and will have to be replaced straight away. When push comes to shove, either solution will offer you many years of outside enjoyment for the whole family. (Tags: Patio vs Decking Dunbar, Patio or Deck Dunbar, Patio vs Deck Dunbar).

Patio Problems Dunbar

Problems With Dunbar Patios: Throughout this site we have discussed a few of the issues that can affect an old patio, but to review, here are the primary issues which are liable to arise with a patio: infestation by weeds, stained patio slabs, dirty patio slabs, loose or unstable patio slabs, trip hazards due to uneven slabs, slabs that have sunk or moved, cracked or damaged patio slabs, slabs covered in lichen and moss, collapsed patio edgings, standing water.

Artificial Grass Dunbar

Artificial Lawns Dunbar (EH42)

Artificial Lawns Dunbar: Another option which you may want to look at rather than a patio is artificial grass, which is equally low maintenance, long lasting but can be installed considerably more cheaply than a stone patio and with less mess and disruption. Artificial grass looks like genuine grass, both from a distance and close up, but it never has to be mowed and doesn't grow. If you are on the lookout for a more cost effective solution for your outside space in Dunbar, then artificial grass could just be the alternative for you. An excessive amount of stone and concrete can look very drab your garden, the green colour of artificial grass is more soothing and easy on the eye. The cost of installing artificial grass in Dunbar is roughly the same as when using the cheapest quality paving but less than half the price of higher end patio slabs.

Patio Cleaning Dunbar

Patio Jet Washing Dunbar

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Dunbar: You will probably not be thinking about patio cleaning if you are only now in the process of installing a brand new garden patio, however, as time passes, if you wish to keep your patio in good shape, you will need to be cleaning it on a regular basis. Many people in Dunbar soon discover that their existing patios aren't as large as they would like and choose to extend them. If you find yourself in this situation, then you'll need to clean and rejuvenate the pre-existing patio slabs so that they match up with the newly laid ones. Normally the cleaning of patios is achieved by chemical cleaning or jet washing and local Dunbar patio cleaning specialists will quite possibly offer both of these services. Professional cleaners use very high pressure equipment that is much better than the type of jet washer many people have in their garden shed or garage.

Flagstone Patios Dunbar

Flagstone Patios Dunbar: Of the varied materials which you can use for building a patio, flagstone is one of the best. There are plenty of reasons why you should consider this option for your new patio in Dunbar, and these include the fact that flagstones have distinctive textures and shapes, flagstones are long lasting and durable, flagstones can be laid dry to give a permeable surface, they come in a variety of subtle shades, they look more organic and natural, plants or grasses can be grown between the stones to soften the look of the patio and flagstones are perfect for "free form" patios, providing lots of scope for creativity. This kind of patio has wide appeal primarily due to the fact that flagstones are natural quarried stones fashioned from slate, bluestone, sandstone, limestone and travertine.

Dunbar Skip Hire Services

Standard household wheelie bins are perfect when it comes to general waste disposal, but for projects like patio installation in Dunbar, and other garden and home makeovers, they are just not suitable (or big enough) for the waste and rubbish that is created. The local authorities in your area might also insist that any garden or construction materials must be disposed of in a regulated and environmentally safe way, in keeping with their legislation. This may mean you are obligated to get rid of it in a recognised disposal and recycling centre. To sidestep the bother of carting waste materials to your nearby Household Recycling Centre, it would be a worthwhile idea to start looking for Dunbar skip hire.

Local Skip Hire Dunbar

With a reliable skip hire contractor in Dunbar, it is guaranteed that your waste will go through the safe and proper disposal procedures at a council authorised site. Subject to what waste is likely to be generated by your patio project, you can have a chat with your building works contractor and the skip hire provider if this is okay. It might mean that the skip hire service will have to split harmful waste into a separate disposal system, especially if asbestos might be concerned.

The guidelines which cover the disposal of hazardous waste are really rigid, and consequently this is a process that's best left to the experts. To ensure compliance with all the guidelines and rules, the skip hire provider and your contractor will work in conjunction.

If your driveway or garden has a space where a skip can be sited, then you should have no issues or problems. If this is unfortunately not the case, and you park your car on the public highway and do not have a suitable garden space, you could try asking next door neighbours if they're happy to leave you a space close to your patio area. For any skips that are placed on private land, driveways or unadopted streets, permits won't be needed, but on a public highway in Dunbar a local council permit will be necessary, enquire whether you need one. This ensures that no issues will occur because of the placement of the skip.

With anything from skip bags and mini-skips up to builders skips and huge roll-on roll-off monstrosities, there are a whole host of skip sizes offered for rent in the Dunbar area. CLICK HERE to get a skip hire quote in Dunbar.
