Site preparation and setting out
The key to a successful patio or driveway is good drainage, removing surface water from the paving as quickly as possible, you can also get permeable and porous paving systems. However most residential patios or driveways we would use traditional system.
Patios & Driveways:
I specialise in patio and driveway construction big or small projects, the choice of materials is endless, paving slabs come in a wide range of sizes and colours, standard pavers, decorative pavers, imported Indian sandstone, setts, cubes, cobbles and block pavers very popular for driveways to name just a few.
The construction methods for all my patio and driveway projects are as follows, I will carry out a site survey then give you a specification of what your project requires. I am happy to talk you through the process and the benefits of excavating to the right depth, laying and compacting type 1 sub-base and laying slabs on a full bed 3 to 1 sharp sand & cement mix. Please note that I will never use spot bedding, which should be avoided as it does not comply with the code of practice for laying paving slabs.
Decking is a cost effective solution for a basic patio deck area, easy to construct, not much digging or preparation work required in most cases, in the right situation quality decking will compliment your garden, however in the UK climate it will become slippery in wet cold winter conditions. Also requires annual maintenance.
