Introducing a patio to your garden provides a place to entertain or space to simply sit back and relax. Gardens Galore create all types of patio using a vast choice of materials ranging from natural sandstone, slate, resin bound gravel to a large collection of concrete products.
Your patio can be built to any shape or size to suit both your lifestyle and your garden space.
- Make the most of small spaces by creating a compact patio area with a small table and chairs.
- Split level patio areas are great for defining different areas in your garden.
- Blend stone with aggregates to bring a mix of textures and colours.
- Choose materials to compliment your property or create contrast for impact.
Where edgings are required to provide restraint for materials, there are a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colours to add the finishing touch and complement the style of the patio.
There are many choices of materials for your patio including natural stone, porcelain, concrete or resin bound gravel. The final choice will depend on how you wish to use the area and the style of the space you wish to create.
Paving is available in a variety of sizes and the laying pattern can alter the feel of the space. A random mix of sizes will provide a more casual feel whereas single sizes or straight lines will create a more contemporary look.
Matching steps and copes where required can create a co-ordinated feel for the surrounding space.
Paving Preparation Specification
Preparation is key to a long lasting patio and that is why all our paving is laid to exact specification.
All of our paving is laid on geo-textile membrane, a layer of sub base that is made up of compacted type 1 scalpings, then laid on a bed of mortar or a sand and cement mix. The depths of the base vary according to the soil type that it is laid upon, however all cases the minimum depth will be no less than 100 mm.
"We are delighted with the vibrant, contemporary sandstone pathway and patio that have been installed by the team from Gardens Galore. Light and colourful the choice of sandstone used complements the house stone. From our initial enquiries through planning to completion of the project the team dealt with our questions and advised us professionally. The grounds team were punctual and courteous and the few snagging issues were resolved promptly. Thanks to all."
