Over the past 27 years we have seen changes in the style and the way in which patios and decking have been used in landscape garden projects. However, one core principle remains true today as it did in the 1980’s: decking and patios have to be properly built to continue to give years of enjoyment to their users.
Today, many customers choose to build patios from natural materials, including:
- Sandstone (both riven and polished)
- Limestone (finished and unfinished)
- Slate and granite – sets, slabs or blocks
The Reeves Landscaping Company has experience in delivering a range of traditional and contemporary garden patio styles, using a range of natural materials that include:
- Large slabs
- Small slabs
- Block paving
- Combination - a range of sizes and materials for a unique patio look
We have an experienced team of landscapers that fully understand the techniques to ensure these materials stay at their best in your garden patio for many years to come.
There are 3 key factors that we take into account when pricing and designing your patio.
When considering having a new patio laid in your garden, the first element to consider is the ground beneath. Any garden patio must sit on a firm and unyielding base.
This involves calculating the required depth to dig-out for the patio area. Afterwards a crushed material (called type 1 MOT) must be used to fill the void. This material is compressed and this is the base upon which a patio can now be built.
In the UK, year after year we experience a considerable amount of rainfall. We will ensure that your patio is complete with the proper drainage to avoid and eradicate flooding.
The design and fit of your patio needs to work in harmony with the rest of your garden. Many of us now like to have open aspects from our kitchens offering a seamless vista to our garden, often with the patio and the kitchen-diner linked. This inside/outside approach takes planning and experience to prevent damp and other potential damaging effects on the home.
The Reeves Landscape Company have designed and built patios, both large and small, on different levels and incorporating a large range of materials. Please take a little time to look at the examples we have on our website.
