You questions on how to create stunning patios
The patio is a welcome addition in any garden but, some people are still unsure about how to create the perfect garden platform for them.
Here, we answer some of the most commonly asked questions about patios, how to create them and how to get the best from them.
My garden is fairly small. Will a patio fit the space or will it be too small?
Not every property is gifted with acres of landscaped, manicured garden and this is why it is even more important to make the best of the garden space that you have. However, patios need to be in scale and proportion with the garden in which they sit.
So, opting for one that is too big can swallow too much of the garden, and vice versa but, at the end of the day, it is your patio so you can in effect, do what you think is right for you. For example, will you use the garden more if you have a patio that forms the majority of it?
Is it a DIY project?
This very much depends on your skill set, tools available and the amount of time you have. It also depends on the size of patio you intend building, and the current condition of the garden too.
For example, gardens are rarely flat with no undulations in the earth and so on. It can be back breaking work simply digging the plot for the patio to sit on, as well as meaning you could be exhausted before you start building the patio itself.
The drainage and foundation work also needs to be top quality, otherwise patios at Uddingston properties can move, slip or slide. At least when you contract a local specialist company to build it, you know it will be quality workmanship throughout – and finished in good time too!
Will it add value to my property?
Patios at Uddingston properties add value in the sense that they add appeal to a garden, making it not only look a lot nicer but also the versatility of use around a patio will also mean that your home, when it is for sale, will hold an additional appeal that those other properties in the same price bracket as yours.
