CREATIVE AND INSPIRING PATIOS & PAVING
There are various types of paving available including Slate, Limestone, Granite, Yorkstone and the very popular Indian Sandstone along with a large variety of different concrete products.
The different types of paving all vary in appearance, colour, finish, quality and cost. We can discuss the various attributes of each choice but in general the laying technique and quality remains constant for each type of paving.
The best method for paving your garden
There are many methods for laying paving and not all of them are recommended. At Garden Creations we believe that we have found the best method to ensure maximum quality and longevity.
Excavation and installation of a compacted sub base over a membrane to a depth of between 100-150mm with slabs individually laid on a full mortar bed and pointed with a wet mix of sand and cement. The different styles and patterns of laying different types of paving will all be discussed with you.
If you want a new patio or paved area but need it completed as cheaply as possible there is a range of flat concrete paving which is good quality but cheaper than the rest.
We are also able to lay paving using a thinner sub base or no sub base at all using just a full bed of mortar in order to save costs. We would always recommend the use of a sub base as the correct way to lay all paving but in certain situations you may decide to go for the cheaper option. We are happy to provide technical advice to help you decide.
