Though a smaller patio assignment might well be something you could do yourself if you are confident in this sort of undertaking, it is most likely that you will have to hire a competent Nairn patio layer to do the job for you, particularly for bigger patios. It is not only the installing of your garden patio that you need to think about but the removal and disposal of the resulting waste and the introduction of new patio products. You need to keep in mind that building patios can be back-breaking work, particularly if the existing patio was bedded in concrete. A large paving slab with a layer of concrete on is going to be rather heavy, so you should at the very least ask somebody to help you lift these, should you choose to go it alone.

Preparation of the Area: This step of the patio project should include the removing and disposal of surrounding materials and unwanted paving waste, extraction of the topsoil layer to get down to the more stable sub-soil, spreading of a sub-base or hardcore and the resulting levelling and tamping of this material, covering with a bedding layer like sharp sand.

Decking vs Patio - Which is Best?

Decking or Patio Nairn?

Decks or patios can provide a great space in even the tiniest of gardens or backyards in Nairn, for sitting back and relaxing. But, how should you choose which is the best option?

For those who are on a budget and concerned about the expense then decking takes the biscuit. Decking is cheaper and in most cases easier to lay than a same size stone patio. If you are worried about the long-term maintenance of a wooden deck then you could opt for composite decking which have a longer life and require far less maintenance. Naturally there is always some routine yearly maintenance to think about, but this is the case for patios too.

Patios will probably be your preferred choice if you are looking for a long lasting, durable area which can endure heavy usage and all types of weather conditions in Nairn. The hard surfaces should last a lifetime, and even if a slab cracks or breaks, it will not impact on the overall structure of the patio and can be quickly repaired or replaced. A cracked deck plank can quickly become dangerous and will need to be replaced immediately, which may not match up with the weathered deck planks already in place. When everything is taken into consideration, both options will give you many years of outside enjoyment for the whole family.

Flagstone Patios Nairn

Flagstone Patios Nairn: Of the varied materials you can use for building a patio, flagstone is certainly one of the best. There are numerous reasons why you should think about this material for your patio in Nairn, and these include the fact that flagstones are long lasting and durable, they come in subtle shades with natural variations, they can be laid dry to provide a permeable surface therefore avoiding standing water, plants can be grown in the gaps between the stones to soften the look, flagstones have distinctive, irregular textures and shapes, they are perfect for "free form" patios and flagstones look more natural and organic. These kinds of patio have huge appeal primarily because flagstones are natural quarried stones cut from bluestone, slate, sandstone, travertine and limestone.

Hard Landscaping Nairn

Hard Landscaping Nairn: Patios, paths and driveways can all be grouped under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (or "hardscaping"), which basically signifies any sort of garden design and architecture which utilizes construction materials, rather than plant related materials like grass, shrubs and trees, which are generally called "soft landscaping". I suppose, at a pinch, you could even consider garden furniture as being "hard" landscaping. (Tags: Hard Landscaping Nairn, Garden Hard Landscaping Nairn, Hard Landscaping Ideas Nairn)

Patio Cleaning Nairn

Patio Grouting Nairn

Patio Re-Grouting Nairn (Dialling code	01667)

Patio Grouting Nairn: Grouted joints that are crumbling or cracked is the chief issue that you will encounter with older patios. If this kind of thing is occurring with your patio, you will have to do something, because before long your patio will begin to look awful with weeds and grass growing up between the joints. You can alleviate this problem by the use of a decent weedkiller or alternatively by dowsing the weeds with boiling water which is a very good, but mostly unrecognised, solution to get rid of weeds without chemicals in cases like this. It is usually a challenging job to replace the grout, and the hardest task of them all is the removing of the old, eroded grouting. On the whole re-doing the joints is pointless if your patio slabs are loose and rocking, because it will not solve the problem, and having the whole paved area re-done is the only possible resolution. If you decide that the slabs on your patio are properly firm, the next step will be to chip out the old cement mortar by using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole area a really good cleanup when you're done and re-grout the slabs with a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these sorts of grouts are applied using the wet slurry solution, while others use the dry brush-in approach.

Nairn Skip Hire

Standard household rubbish bins are just the ticket in regards to general waste disposal, but for projects like patio laying in Nairn, and other home and garden makeovers, they are simply not suitable for the rubbish and waste that is generated. The authorities in your local region might also insist that any garden or construction materials must be disposed of in an eco-friendly and regulated way, in line with their guidelines. So, hauling your rubbish to a recognised disposal and recycling centre, is the only way that you can observe such legislation. To sidestep the aggravation of lugging your waste back and forth to your nearby council site, it might be a good idea to start searching for local skip hire.

The skip hire company will need to split hazardous waste (such as asbestos containing materials) into a totally separate disposal system for safe and secure processing.

Hazardous waste disposal comes under rigid legislation, and managing it's best left for the pros. To ensure all guidelines and rules are addressed correctly, both your contractor and the skip hire provider will work in tandem.

If your garden or driveway has a space where a skip can be positioned, then you should have no problems. If however you've only got parking on the street or no suitable garden area you could speak to your next door neighbours and ask whether they might be able to leave a suitable space as close to the patio area as possible. If your skip is going to be placed on a main road in Nairn a temporary licence or permit may be required from your local authority, and the skip will need to be signposted and lit. Get in touch with you local council offices to find out if you need one. You can then rest assured that there won't be any problems with the siting of the skip.
