Natural Sandstone Paving
Coming in a variety of different tones such as sandy yellow, beige and brown, natural sandstone paving is one of the most popular paving choices when it comes to patios and pathways – mainly due to the fact it suits both contemporary and traditional designs.
Natural Slate Paving
Available in a range of darker tones, the natural slate paving provides a more contemporary look than the other lighter tones. Slate is extremely versatile, being easy to shape and manipulate, making it easy to suit your style.
Slate is also vulnerable to moisture damage, so it is important to seal your slate paving to prevent any damage.
Granite paving is impressively hard-wearing as well as looking great on patios and paths, particularly on driveways. The textured finish of granite gives it more grip when the surface is wet, compared to other materials. Also available in a wide range of tones, granite can give your garden the contemporary finish you may be after.
It’s important to keep in mind that granite is extremely heavy, so we recommend that you have a professional to lay the paving.
If you want a natural stone look, with the consistency of manufactured stone, limestone is the paving option for you. It’s easy to shape and manipulate to suit your design, but the colour range is very limited.
Limestone is vulnerable to acid rain, so it is important to seal your limestone paving to prevent any damage.
