Now is the time of year when you’ll either be enjoying sitting out on your patio or still considering building one. Time is running out though at it will be the end of summer before you know it, so if you want to enjoy what’s left of the summer with a new patio here are some of our top tips on buying reclaimed paving slabs.
While a newly built patio when built well looks an impressive sight, they are actually fairly simple DIY projects to take on as long as you have a good strong back! We currently have all sorts of reclaimed paving slabs to choose from that would look great in any garden and have the strength to last for years to come.
To get the best price for your slabs, ensure you are buying your paving slabs by size rather than weight as reclaimed slabs are likely to be quite heavy and you won’t get many to the tonne. Also beware of slabs that have visible oil stains on them as this can be difficult to remove.
If you are choosing reclaimed slabs for a garden design project, ensure you have enough slabs just in case any break, Just in case there are no others available of a similar shape and size. The bigger the slab, the harder they are to get hold of.
