Porcelain Patio, Hertfordshire

15/09/2016 - Case Studies and Inspiration

The client was delighted by this patio transformation from Richard and his team.   We recommended porcelain for this patio refurbishment project in Elstree and ensured that it was installed by a team of skilled landscapers.

Why use porcelain paving

  • Durable
  • Naturally repels stain – no need for sealants
  • Frost resistant
  • Inhospitable to growth of algae and moss
  • Easy to clean (but rarely needs it!)
  • Colour is stable and will not fade

The challenges

The existing patio was outdated, stained, small and uninviting. The level of the lawn had dropped over time meaning that mowing close to the patio was virtually impossible.

The Arbour Landscape Solutions Team were surprised at the engineering involved in this project with drainage schemes and soakaways cleverly hidden beneath the patio. However, these challenges are all in a day’s work for us.

It didn’t take long to exchange this tired patio into a contemporary, stylish and practical all-weather surface. No other landscaping works were carried out yet the whole garden was transformed by the installation of a perfect porcelain patio.

What the customer said

“We chose Arbour Landscape Solutions for their professionalism, perfectionism & eye for detail. Our patio was a complicated project given a number of soakaways and an irrigation system that required moving. In addition, we had to route electrics from the house to provide power for a spa.
Richard and his team managed by Liviu completely project managed and coordinated their team for the duration of the project. They were completely trustworthy having access to my garage and back garden and were exceptionally tidy. We were kept informed of progress through WhatsApp whilst we were away and on holiday and were continually provided with photos and texts as the work was progressing. They took a very consultative approach. Always asking for our opinion before any decisions were made.”

“We are thrilled with the finished product. It looks stunning. Everything was left immaculate and the team couldn’t have worked harder. “

Before work began. Stone is discoloured and there is moss growing in the jointing.

After - a brand spanking new patio breathes new life into the garden.
