Case Study – Project  Slab patio – Mersham, Ashford.

Work carried out for Private client – Early 2022

The private client wanted works to install a slab patio with a new drainage system underground and small brick walls built up to increase the height of the patio that would tie into the existing outdoor bbq area as shown on the left hand side of the photos.

  • Dig out area approximately 120sqm, using digger and dumper to remove muck away.
  • Plans to tap into existing drainage and replace new pipes with junction boxes to allow for new runs. Pipes are to be laid on a shingle/membrane bed.
  • Once new pipes had been installed, MOT type 1 was imported and compacted on a membrane base, in preparation for the concrete bed.
  • Bricks to be laid five high on concrete foundations, style as per customer request.
  • Import and lay concrete slabs on a concrete bed, making sure to stick to the correct levels.
  • Pave in patio with a grey jointex mortar, brushing off any excess.
