There are so many different companies selling natural stone paving that actually choosing the right stone for your paving project can be a daunting prospect. We thought we would show a few different photos of stone projects that we had completed to give you some ideas for your garden paving. Generally there are a few different styles which people choose when designing an outdoor space. Firstly there is the traditional style of garden. Generally when people are designing a traditional garden they opt for sandstone paving, tumbled paving or even reclaimed Yorkstone paving. This is because these products are more rustic in their style and blend in well with traditional styles. People usually opt for random sized paving. The following picture is of reclaimed Yorkstone paving laid at the London Stone showroom.
The second style we see is the contemporary design which is very popular for smaller gardens in London. Designers create minimal gardens with clean straight lines and bold contrasting colours. Sawn paving is particularly popular in these types of designs and is usually laid with single sized slabs in uniform patterns. The following picture is of Beige sawn sandstone paving laid using 600x400 size slabs in a stretcher bond style. Beige is one of the most popular products in our sawn sandstone paving range because it looks so good in contemporary designs
The final style that we see used is the classical style. This style is often used when trying to create a garden on a period property. Material like Slate & Travertine paving are used for their bold, stark colours which complement the bold features of period properties. The following is a picture of Travertine paving installed at a property in Bucks
