The trick to laying a perfect patio is planning and preparation! Remember, slabs are much more difficult to cut & shape than decking, so keep to a fairly basic design unless you are competent using a disc cutter. Allow plenty of time to plan your dream patio as you never know what difficulties you may uncover.

Paving Design Ideas

There are many different types of patios, from traditional, rustic sandstone to contemporary white or grey slate slabs. It is down to personal preference and practicality. If you have children you may way to choose slabs with a smoother finish to avoid grazed knees and hands; if you have or are thinking about artificial grass then the lighter, softer sandstone looks brilliant.

Whether you’re installing the paving from scratch or replacing an existing setup, contact CPM today for advice and a free quote.

A mosaic style patio is the most traditional and looks brilliant on a large area, slightly harder to lay as it’s a bit of a jigsaw puzzle!

Pavers

A patio can be made from many materials, but it is hard to beat one made from purely pavers. The initial cost is usually higher due to the extra labour and materials needed, but you will save money and time in the long run as repairs are much easier.

Lighting

Once your new patio is complete, carefully chosen and positioned lighting can increase not only security but also create the perfect ambience for relaxing with friends and family in the evenings. If you were to also get a pergola built, these are brilliant for downlighting and fairy lights, as well as for a climber to cover the patio and create some shade. Consider plants such as Clematis or Wisteria, which bud beautiful flowers.
