Patios for rest and relaxation

The patio is a must in the garden and a place that brings peace to both weekdays and weekends. A patio can be designed in many different ways and it is important to put your own stamp on the outdoor space. The patio is a gathering place for family, friends, dinners and parties. But also an area where one's own time must of course be spent and where the greenery of the garden helps to find peace.

We go through different materials and stone floors to see how you can succeed with your stone patio.

- Various stone materials for the patio -

So much more than just stone

A stone patio provides an easy-to-maintain surface that only gets more beautiful over time. When it comes to the different materials, taste plays a big role. But also of course the maintenance. Some materials are more maintenance-free than others. Natural stone is a wonderful material that is perfect for the patio and you can choose from many different stone materials in different shades and textures. Natural stone and granite ceramics, for example, acquire a natural patina over time and are easier to maintain than concrete slabs. Paving is very popular today as a patio, and stone provides a solid surface that radiates that little something extra. There are many different elements that play into one's choice of stone. How the patio should be used, the design of the garden, the shape and style of the house, but also of course the wallet and one's budget.
It is important to take the various parts into account and find a solution and go your own way. Because the most important thing in the whole process is that you are satisfied with your end result.

The load on the surface to be laid is of great importance, but for a patio, a thicker paving stone rarely needs to be chosen. 50mm is the most common thickness of flagstone and a popular choice for both driveways and patios.

Marksten Visby also comes with a surface structure, which gives an extra lift to the garden.

Regardless of the choice of flagstone, your paving should be framed with a curbstone. Extra nice compared to paving stone in concrete is to break it off a little and let granite curbstone frame the surface and give it its stability.
