If you feel your garden is lacking an area for rest and relaxation, the ideal solution would be to design and build a patio, and with that in mind, here are a few tips to ensure that you make all the right decisions.
- Think About Available Space – The first step is to look at the available space and decide how big your terrace will be. As a guide, it should be at least 10 x 5 metres and if you have a large garden, you can go much bigger than that. Most terraces are rectangular in shape, although you could choose a semi-circle or kidney shaped patio, which adds a unique aspect to the look.
- Costing the Project – Once you have the dimensions, you can crunch the numbers and with the pavers cost in Dorking being very reasonable, your new patio should not break the bank. If you are a DIY enthusiast, this would be a challenging project, otherwise you should contact a local patio specialist to quote for the project and take your design ideas into account.
- Essential Shading – Of course, it is important that you have some shading over the terraced area and this can be achieved in a number of ways. You could make the investment and have a fully retractable roof installed, which would give you the ultimate shading solution and it would also add to the value of the property.
If you find a good patio company, they can take care of every aspect of the project and you will be more than happy with the outcome.
