Creating a paved area in your garden as a patio is a great place to spend time relaxing outdoors or for a space where you can entertain guests on sunny days and warm nights. There are lots of fantastic styles of patio – from wooden decking, to tiles, to concrete patios, and what you choose depends on many things.
A patio is low maintenance and can be decorated with potted plants and hanging baskets, as well as garden ornaments. You can even install patio heating so you can enjoy it in the cooler times of the year too!
If you want to cover a larger area and want a budget friendly option, concrete is a great choice. It is versatile and can be painted to create your own unique look too. Contact a company like this concrete Gloucester based company www.monstermixconcrete.co.uk to get your concrete patio ready for the summer months.
You can also use paving slabs, which rather than being one solid patio, are put together to create a paved area. They can be laid in many different ways to create the look that you want and can also be used to create paths to blend the garden together.
Decking is a wooden material that works well in a garden too and has become much more popular in recent years. It is fairly easy and cheaper to lay it yourself and there are lots of guides online that show you how you can do this.
