What to Consider When you are Planning a Patio

A patio is a great thing to have in the garden. It provides you a space to place furniture, a barbeque and to sit in the sunshine on the days when we are lucky enough to have it!

If you are planning to build one, here are some of the things to consider…

Budget – Firstly you need to consider your budget. As well as the cost of the materials, there is also the cost of the labour required to install the patio, so make sure that you take all costs into account.

Get an idea of all of the costs before you start on the job, to ensure that you are able to cover it fully.

Materials – Think about the materials that you want to use for the patio, and factor in the appearance as well as how to maintain them and look after them to keep your patio looking its best. To get an idea about the various materials that you need, it is worth ringing around and finding suppliers like this concrete Swindon based company https://www.monstermixconcrete.co.uk/concrete-swindon/ for example.

Size – The size of the patio is also something to think about. This will depend on how much space you have in the garden, how much of the garden you want it to take up and of course what you want to use it for. If you want a small patio for a couple to sit outside, you are not going to need it to be as large as a patio that is designed to entertain lots of people.
