Patio Installation & Construction

Did you know that the word patio is derived from the Spanish ‘patu’ or ‘pati’ meaning pasture or the land at the back of the house? Over time it developed to be an outside living area, before reaching its modern day incarnation as an area adjacent to the house.

Today it doubles as a barbecue area, outdoor play room and seating area, providing a low maintenance, all weather surface that should main intact for years to come.

At Fost & Co we work with only the finest materials to bring you the perfect patio. Read on to find out more about a selection of surfaces.

Patio Landscaping

Once the summer months roll in, there is nothing nicer than a spot of al fresco dining or open-air entertaining on a smooth and even patio.

At Fost & Co we offer a range of patio styles designed to enhance your outdoor experience. We can build it to complement existing paths and driveways or create a stunning stone terrace that forms the standout feature of the garden.

Whatever your patio preference, the landscaping experts at Fost & Co are at your service.

Concrete Patio

One of the simplest methods of laying a patio is to use poured concrete - this provides a seamless finish to any backyard patio area that is hard-wearing and durable. While not as visually appealing as patio stones, blocks or bricks, a concrete patio can be installed quickly and with a minimum of fuss, though it may require extra time to fully cure and harden.

Italian Porcelain Patio

Italy is the porcelain capital of the world and, as such, produces the best backyard patio paving. Available in a vast range of colours and textures, it has a number of benefits, such as:

  • Water resistance
  • Easy maintenance
  • Frost proof
  • Long lasting
  • Fade resistant
  • Slip resistant

As an engineered product, Italian Porcelain Paving is also easier to work with as the sizing of each slab is more consistent and provides a seamless join.

Above all, Italian Porcelain Paving offers a selection of beautiful contemporary finishes that can even mimic the look of timber or tile.

Although one of the most expensive paving options on the market, its benefits and longevity offer remarkable value.

Sawn Sandstone Patio

At Fost & Co we work extensively with porcelain sawn sandstone – one of the most popular, contemporary patio materials.

Indian sandstone is available in two forms – riven (which means the stone is naturally split along its fault line) and sawn (the stone is sawed straight off the block in large slabs that are then cut down to the required paving size). The surface can be honed, sandblasted, brushed or flamed, which gives it its natural warm hues.

Its super-smooth surface brings a touch a class to any backyard patio area and can be used to great effect with contrasting pebble borders or shrubberies.

Brazilian Stone

Offering a range of subtle tones and shades, this style of riven patio blocks complements a range of properties and garden styles.

It too has a range of positive aspects, including:

  • Durability
  • Weather resistance
  • Long-lasting sleek appearance
  • Naturally flat

At Fost & Co we work only with a range of trusted suppliers to guarantee the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of your Brazilian stone patio bricks.

Granite Paving

Well known for its exceptionally hardwearing consistency, granite paving is one of the most popular type of patio stones on the market.

Suitable for areas where there is particularly high footfall, granite paving is a natural, tough, scratch-resistant surface that needs little care and attention throughout the year. Available in a range of shades and tones, this durable option makes the perfect choice for most types of property.
