How landscape gardeners can help

Planning out the area carefully or getting the job done by landscape gardeners can create the most spectacular feature in your garden. Good use of existing and new planting enhances the value of outdoor seating areas tremendously, so you benefit from a beautiful and relaxing space outdoors, no matter what the size of your garden. Just some of the popular products used for patios include patio pavers, sandstone paving, or even resin bonded gravel.

Do I need planning permission for a new patio or deck?

You won’t need planning permission for adding a hard-surfaced patio or deck to your garden, unless it’s a listed property. But, it’s always a good idea to think about water drainage, particularly if you’re in a location prone to floods. That’s one of the top reasons to use local professionals with in-depth knowledge of all the different available paving, slabbing, and permeable products on the market. You’ll find that landscaping the area around your new patio is an exciting project, allowing you free rein to create the lush garden you long for.
