Enthusiasts of DIY in Woking will probably be anxious to handle this, however putting in a quality patio is not as simple as you'd think. Tiny patio projects will likely covered by range of expertise of most do-it-yourselfers, though larger more extensive patios are better left to professional patio layers. Also keep in mind that it is not simply preparing a level base and laying the patio slabs that's involved, it is also the excavation and disposing of a large amount of earth and rubble and maybe even previously laid patio materials if the project is a replacement. Work like this can be heavy and hard going and will almost certainly require the use of a skip.

Preparing the Area: This stage of the patio project includes the removal and disposal of surface materials and old paving waste, removal of topsoil to get down to the more stable sub-soil, putting in of a sub-base or hardcore material and the subsequent levelling and tamping of this material, overlaying with a bedding layer like sharp sand.

The Laying of the Paving: When the area has all been prepared your patio layer will commence installing the slabs, how this stage proceeds will depend upon the types of materials you've selected, and should be reasonably straightforward as long as the area preparation was carried out properly and the final base is solid and flat.

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

Resin Patios Woking

Resin Bound Patios Woking: A more recent innovation which is in the main used for driveways in Woking, but can easily be adapted for patios is the resin bound process.

The finished surface is permeable, enabling rain water to easily pass through it, preventing most of the surface water problems that can sometimes occur with paving slabs. Resin bound patios and driveways are also UV stable, weed resistant, relatively maintenance free, colour fast, long lasting, available in a variety of colours, slip resistant, attractive and hardwearing, they're in addition incredibly versatile and can easily incorporate customized designs and logos, making them great for business as well as home use.

Decking vs Patio - Which is Best?

Decking or Patio Woking?

Just about any garden or even a tiny backyard in Woking can be transformed by the installation of a patio or deck. But, which of these options best matches your requirements?

If it's down to initial expense, then decking takes first place. Decking is less expensive and often quicker to install than a similarly sized stone patio. If you're anxious about the long-term maintenance of a timber deck then you could go for composite decking which need far less maintenance and have a longer life. Naturally there's always some routine yearly maintenance to consider, but this is the case for patios too.

If you have a preference for a durable and hard-wearing area, this is where a patio comes out on top. Even when a patio slab cracks it does not normally affect the everyday use, and it can be quickly exchanged by an expert. Conversely, a split deck board or plank, must be changed immediately, because otherwise it will create a dangerous trip area on even a low-level deck. Both patios and decks are fantastic alternatives that will provide you with an outside space for the entire family to enjoy for many years to come.
