We lay patios for our customers around Penistone & Barnsley, providing a quality area to entertain in summer within their garden environment
A properly laid patio should always involve careful preparation of the ground area with hardcore stone 'crusher run', which is leveled and compacted using an industrial standard whacker (vibrating) plate (below).

You are then ready to apply your choice of finished patio slab. There are lots of choices on the market, from many patio slab manufacturers. We tend to recommend the Indian sandstone variety, which has plenty of subtle colour/shade variants, and it provides a quality natural stone finish, that lends itself well to most garden environments.

Our work has incorporated curved patios, standard rectangular patios, patio circles adjoining rectangle patios and patio circles... these can add excellent little areas within the garden - an oasis of calm for afternoon tea or quiet secluded reading corner, which we often use successfully in conjunction with a curved raised beds using dry stone walling, flowing around the curve of the circle.

Certain situations require a more traditional finish, where we have used natural slabs of York stone, which provide a very natural and rustic aged appearance to the patio, and provide a very traditionally 'English' feel to the garden.

Bedded on solid mortar our patios are features that are very long lasting, permanent features to watch your garden develop around, a good investment for your garden... and unlike decking... it doesn't rot, or need painting once a year, we do generally say to customers that as with any outdoor feature it will need maintaining at times due to the rigours of winter, pointing does require occasional maintenance by the customer to maintain the high standards we leave a job in.

Whatever your choice, Dream Garden Design will create a feature from which you can enjoy the panorama of your garden and the summer months for a long time to come.
