Patios

Patios are increasingly popular. They provide an outside area for relaxing in or entertaining family and friends. They are also seen as a way of keeping the garden to a more minimal maintenance for the landscape. Patios can be created and built using a variety of materials, colours, shapes and sizes. There are many advantages that a patio can offer a homeowner, all of which contribute both to the quality of the home as well as the quality of life.

Paths

The primary purpose of walkways is to give a sturdy surface to high traffic areas. Without a walkway surface, foot traffic would erode the ground and eventually leave a path of dirt or mud.

Materials for Pathways

For your back garden, you could choose from a wide range of materials. Block paving is a common material which is chosen as it provides a long lasting and sturdy pathway.

Gravel is also common as it offers a decorative and attractive atmosphere and look to your garden.

One common advantage of having a patio is that it is a place to unwind; allowing one to enjoy the fresh air in the spring or summer.

Another added advantage of installing a patio to your home is that it offers an excellent place to entertain family and friends, especially if the house is a little small so the patio opens up the garden as an extra base.

Depending upon the present value of your home, adding a patio can considerably boost the valuation of your property.
