You may have considered paving your garden, but have you considered all the benefits and drawbacks of concrete? Here are just a few:

Choosing natural stone for your paving will enhance the look of your garden, while providing a low maintenance option. This type of hardscape should last for many decades if properly cared for. Natural stone slabs look elegant and complement most garden design schemes. Limestone and granite slabs will look particularly good in contemporary gardens. If you’re unsure about which type of paving is best for your garden, seek advice from a landscape contractor.

If you plan to redevelop your garden in the future, consider the various options for paving. A paved garden is easier to organise, customise, and maintain than a garden covered in grass. You can also choose the type and colour of paving you want. Moreover, modern paving is extremely durable and can last for two decades or more, providing that the paving is correctly installed. Of course, paving requires regular cleaning, but it’s a good long-term solution for your garden.

A concrete garden requires constant upkeep. While natural stone requires relatively little care, concrete requires ongoing maintenance. Concrete becomes exposed after several years of heavy traffic, leaving it susceptible to cracks. Similarly, natural stone is frost resistant and durable. Moreover, you can even use recycled materials to create a paving for your garden. This choice is a great option for those who want to have a beautiful garden.

Keeping some grass is of course good for wildlife, aesthetics and to soak up surface runoff. If you need Mountfield Parts to keep your mower is top condition, go to www.diyspareparts.com/parts/mountfield/

When paving your garden, you can choose between a paved driveway and a paved patio. Pavers can be laid with or without borders, runner or soldier-style, and you can even have them installed without any boundaries. Once installed, you can choose the colour of the pavers, which can match your home and other natural elements. You can change the colour of your pavers as often as you want to.

Besides being low-maintenance, patios are also easy to clean. They are resistant to stains, frost, and moss. You can easily clean them with hot soap and water. Just remember to keep loose debris and dirt off your pavers to avoid damage. However, it is also important to remember that paving tiles can be cracked or broken. If you have a small lawn, you may want to consider other options.
