Growing in popularity, Porcelain paving offers a sleek and sophisticated look with a designer edge that you’ll be eager to show off to your friends and family. Porcelain paving ticks all the boxes as it is durable, low-maintenance and aesthetically stunning.
Made from a mix of clay, sand and minerals baked at a high temperature, the resulting paving slabs are non-porous, hard-wearing, and extremely tough with each slab calibrated to 20mm in thickness. Requiring minimal maintenance, it is also stain resistant due to its non-porous surface, meaning spillages remain on the surface and can simply be wiped off and will not be prone to the excessive growth of moss or algae.
Sandstone Natural Stone
Sandstone natural stone paving has been a favourite in many garden projects due to its hard-wearing properties and its versatility. It makes a perfect patio or garden pathway for any property type, contemporary or traditional. Natural stone is an entirely organic product quarried from the earth and therefore will vary in natural tones and colours, ranging from neutral cream or grey tones to earthy browns and greens. Some also come in pink shades and often come decorated by stunning natural bands.
Generally, riven slabs are calibrated to 22mm and sawn/honed are calibrated to 20mm. The slabs are suited to the British climate and will stand the test of time, even in harsh weather, retaining their grip underfoot and offering a robust, long-lasting paving option. Sandstone Natural Stone is a strong, durable stone which has stood the test of time.
Limestone paving is a hard organic material that fairs well under exposure to the elements. It is extremely hardwearing and easy to maintain, making it an excellent candidate for driveways, paths, and patios. It is not as riven as sandstone and has a very smooth texture, sawn edge and surface. This smoother finish gives a sleek and designer feel, but can also give a traditional, natural look.
Limestone does have a limited range of colours, mainly black, blues and yellows, but makes up in its versatility and its elegant natural texture. The slabs are calibrated to 22mm, meaning it is easy to cut and convenient to work with, contributing toward a flawless finished product.
Block paving is commonly used for driveways, but another great way they can be used is for garden patios and outdoor areas. Block paving has long been a favourite for its durability and diverse colour range, varied styles, and timeless appeal. Typically made from concrete or clay, they are incredibly easy to lay on a prepared subbase and sand screed. With a variety of pattern styles to choose from, the herringbone pattern is the most popular way to lay as it offers the strongest bond due to its interlocking design. A great benefit of having block paving is that individual blocks can be lifted and replaced if they are damaged or have become worn.
