Paving: Small Spaces

How many times do you look  at your outdoor space and think that if you just extended your paving by a little it would improve the liveability of the space? And how many times do you discount the idea because you just do not know who to even ask to do a neat and professional paving extension for you? Well, no matter how small your renovation is, it can be done and there are companies who offer wonderful paving  renovation solutions for large or small gardens.

A prime reason for paving extensions would be when a patio overhang casts too much shade for the lawn to grow any longer. Instead of having bare patches of ground in your garden, why not consider extending your paving.

A few practical points about paving extensions to consider before taking the leap are:

1. Can the size and colour of your existing paving stone or paving cobbles be matched?

2. Are there any important services under the proposed paving area that need to be moved before laying the paving such as electrical conduits or water main pipes or even irrigation pipes?

3. What are the rules that your Estate or Body Corporate has about paving extensions?

The advantage of using an experienced company to do your paving renovation is that they make sure that the base preparation is thick enough and firmly compacted  for the kind of usage your paving needs. The base preparation for a driveway always needs to be thicker and more compact than a paved patio or paved pedestrian walk way. Your paving installer will know the minimum specifications for each paving type.
