TLC incorporating Neish Contracts

Garden Design & Landscaping...

Once a budget has been agreed we can work closely with you to create a design that suits you best. You may want a theme to your garden i.e. Japanese, natural, traditional, modern, country etc. Or you may also want your garden to be unique with new ideas. Working together with us, deciding on ideas, materials and plants we can create exactly what you want at the price you can afford.

No job too big or too small.

About Pattern Imprinted Concrete (PIC)
The finished surface is 25% stronger than normal concrete so the patterns are permanent.
The colouring used is UV resistant so there is no fading.
Very low maintenance.
The surface is sealed to repel dirt and stains so they wash off easily.
Weeds and algae cannot grow on the surface.


The Phases of Installation
Site visit to measure the area and provide a price for the job.
Choose colours and patterns
Agree a date to start work
Detailed survey of the site to ensure all elements are documented - e.g. fall levels are properly assessed so water will run away from the house and / or into drains.
Excavation of the area and laying of the sub-base.
The concrete is poured, levelled and coloured.
A second colouring is applied to the area which gives depth to the main colour and protects / maintains the print when the mats are lifted.
The area is washed off and the final colour and print are revealed.
Contraction joints are cut into the paved area.
Dressing of manholes and other final cosmetic work is done.
The paved area is sealed and cleaned.
