Patios

Knot Only Wood have vast experience with designing, laying and maintaining patios of all shapes and sizes. Whether your project is a small patio or pathway, or a large commercial forecourt, we have all the knowledge and expertise to ensure that it looks beautiful for many years to come.

We know that patios can be hard to get right: from sinking stones to crumbling edges, we've all seen patios that have lost their 'pizazz'.  All too often the problem is down to crumbling mortar or poor quality pointing.

Knot Only Wood have been laying patios the 'right' way for many years and we know that the most crucial aspect of a patio is preparation.  A step often glossed over by fly-by-nighters, the base of your patio, and the bed of mortar it is laid on, is crucial to the longevity of the surface.  So, as you'd expect, we are uncompromising in this area.  We don't dot-and-dab, and we don't lay stones on sand.  Our patios all have a solid hardcore base, and are laid over with at least 20mm of a good quality, strong mix of mortar.  Our pointing will stand up not only to years of weathering but to pressure-washers too.

Above are a few examples of our work.  As you can see we're experienced with a wide variety of paving, from engineered slabs to sandstone and limestone.
