Before selecting your material consider what qualities you are looking for. Do you want something eco-friendly? Are you looking for the most affordable option? Do you need a slip-resistant surface for safety around a pool? What look are you attracted to? Will freezing weather be a concern? Once you’ve answered these sort of questions you will be able to make an educated decision on what material is best for your patio. This will ensure that your investment will hold up for years to come. Patio paving is often the biggest expense when landscaping a yard. If you enjoy the high-end look of stone, but don’t enjoy its price tag, there are other options. You can opt for decorative concrete that mimics stone or brick. Another idea is to use a more affordable material for the majority of the work and use the stone as an accent border or design. If you plan to landscape your yard in stages, paving your patio should be the first stage.

Job process from start to finish

Clearing the site.
The builder had left materials on site after the extension went up so our first job was to clear it out so we could get on with the job at hand.
Sleeper assembly
Once the site was clear our next task was to build the framework for the patio.
Retaining walls and steps
The garden was on different levels so we had to provide retaining walls to at every level change. In this instance we used sleepers. They also formed the risers for the steps on to the patio.
Wooden planters
Sleeper planters can create a space which is easily maintained. The client wanted them to surround the patio so they could plant trees and shrubs to decorate the space.
Indian Sandstone
We started laying the patio using a sawn and honed sandstone which has sharp and straight edges. This type of stone is machine cut at source giving it a polished and clean look. There are all types of sandstone and they come in a variety of colours and sizes. This is a patio pack which is formed from 4 different sized slabs arranged in certain patterns.
The sleepers and patio are laid
Jointing compound
The joints should be left deep enough to allow the compound to work properly. Joints that are too shallow will not be as strong and are likely to fail later on. The compound is swept in using a soft broom and reacts with water so the use of an outside tap is essential at this stage. At this point our job was complete. The client decided they would line the planters with a membrane and fill them with their chosen soil.
Steep brick steps to the back door laid with a similar house brick to the existing and using treads the same as the patio
