Decal Scotland provide landscaping services to the Killearn area.
One of the most popular things we are asked for in landscaping a is for the creation of a patio. We all love patios – practical yet smart, they are a great feature for any garden and come in so many styles. There’s also lots of materials to choose from so how do you get the right one?
If you are looking for the most cost effective option, then concrete could be the way to go. It can be formed into any number of shapes or styles and imitates other materials. It can be mixed with stain-resistant properties as well to prevent it from staining.
Natural stone paving includes things like granite, limestone and sandstone and can be a mid-priced option. Limestone has lots of texture and colour that mellow over time while slate patio slabs work in any garden design. Granite is very tough and makes for a smooth surface.
Porcelain is a well-known material but using it for patios is a relatively new addition. They look like stone but are very durable and resistant to frost and algae. There are lots of colours and styles and can imitate other materials, without fading or changing colour over time.
Finally, block paving remains one of the most popular patio materials and is ideal if you don’t have a massive area to cover. It also works well for unusual shapes or odd contours in the garden.
