Paving

Hard landscaping is the backbone of your garden - the architecture which sets off the rest of your design. Using one or at most two styles of paving throughout your design pulls it together and makes the garden work as a whole, so choose carefully from the selection in our garden centre in Cornamagh.

Paving slabs: you'll find both pre-cast concrete or natural stone in our garden centre. Match slabs with the sandstone, limestone or granite of your local area so your garden blends into the wider landscape.

Cobbles and setts give a timeless, fabulously textural surface. Use them to break up expanses of smoother paving or create a cobble mosaic in different colours for a spectacular centrepiece.

Brick is a great choice for city gardens, echoing the buildings around it and linking your garden to the house. Lay across a path to make your garden look wider, or along it for the illusion of length.

Gravel is easy to lay and very versatile. It's also permeable, allowing excess rainwater to run through - use in ribbons between other paving materials to drain surface water away.

Please ask the staff in our garden centre in Cornamagh for more information and advice about using paving in the garden.
