Patio laid

Building prices for patio laid

Laying a patio involves a lot of hard work. First the surface must be levelled out and dug down to a depth that will allow the base sand to be spread onto it. Then the patio slabs themselves must be positioned spaced apart to give a neat pattern. Finally the gaps between the slabs must be filled with a sand, dry mix or wet mix filler. All in all be prepared for a lot of lifting and bending, so watch out for that bad back when laying a patio!
