Tiles for the garden: what can you do with patio tiles?

outdoor tiles

When you design a garden, you can make many different choices. Are you going for a lot of greenery, or do you opt for a beautifully tiled terrace? A stylish outdoor patio is a beautiful addition to any garden. Tiles are very atmospheric for this. Today there are many outdoor tiles and patio tiles available, but where do you start?


Laying tiles in the garden

Laying tiles in the garden is not an easy job. That is why it is nice to outsource this to professionals, so that you only have to pick out tiles and then you can raise your legs! Prefer to lay your own garden tiles? Dig the soil about 15-20 deep and apply fill sand. Make sure that the ground is neatly smooth and even and press down firmly. Set the edge lock. These locking bands must fit together properly. This is important for the preservation of your pavement. You can compact the sand bed by tamping. Then you can pull the excess sand towards you with a straight wooden board. Lay the patio tiles on the flat sand bed. Use a rubber mallet to tap the garden tiles.

Green tiles? Cleaning patio tiles

Outdoor tiles are a very nice addition to your garden, but it is important to maintain them well. Do you suffer from green deposits? A shame, but luckily there is another solution to make your tiles look as good as new again. Make sure that you rinse the tiles well with water after using these remedies, especially if you have pets. For example, put some cleaning vinegar in a spray bottle and spray it over the tiles with green deposits. Rinse with water and scrub with a stiff broom. You can also do this: Dissolve 5 tablespoons of soda and 5 tablespoons of green soap in a full bucket of water (about 10 liters), pour this over the tiles and let it soak for an hour. Then rinse well with water and scrub with a broom.
