In most landscaping designs, there will be walkways so that those who own the garden and those who use it, such as their family, have a clear and safe means of traversing it. Within many landscape designs, the walkways will be some form of paving rather than decking, for example. Where space allows, paved patios are also an extremely sought-after landscaping feature.
Thankfully, there is no shortage of options when it comes to paving choices. Intreeg Landscapes in Sydney advise both the type of paving materials and the patterns that can be created within walkways and patios. Anyone considering walkways or a patio for their garden should seek advice from their landscapers. Still, we have outlined some of the more popular paving options below to get you started.
Your options for paving types will be influenced by several things such as your budget, the available space, what the paving is to be used for, and the aesthetic goals you have for the appearance of your garden. Here are some of the most popular paving types:
- Stone: If you use stone for paving, you are guaranteed that the sizes and shapes of those stones will be unique. There will also be variations in textures and colours too. However, if you prefer uniformity then you can request cut stones whereby the sizes and shapes should be alike.
- Bricks: For a simple and inexpensive option for patios and walkways, few paving options fit the bill more than bricks. You can even source second-hand bricks if you want to save even more money. Bricks can be coloured to suit your needs, and the laying pattern can fit in with your garden’s aesthetics.
