Adding paving to a section of your garden is a fantastic way of demarcating a specific area of your garden for things like entertainment, parking, walking or well, just to create visual interest. Placing paving in the garden is a great way of creating a more structured look, and if you are precious about your grass getting trampled, or touchy about mud being tramped into your home, then putting strategic paving into the garden can save you a lot of trouble!
Here are a couple examples of the ways in which you can use paving design ideas to enhance your garden and home in general!
This is a lovely paving design idea for shaded or damp gardens. Here the paving has been placed around trees and patches of grass creating a solid, stable walk way and entertainment area while still allowing the home owner to enjoy the shade and the greenery. The circular pattern being echoed through the space is especially lovely!
For a small courtyard or private outside garden area, a lovely paving design idea is to demarcate a small patio or sitting area. Use different designs, textures and styles of tile or flag stone for added visual effect. Small border tiles are also a stunning way of delineating edge and space!
Taking traditional paving materials like red brick and playing with the way in which they are placed in the garden, as in this image, to create funky and different patterns and paving styles is a very clever paving design idea! This is especially suited to an eclectic home and garden!
Another fantastic paving design idea for your garden is to play with creating patterns by alternating paving and plant life. A great way to do this is to use alternate areas or patches of paving stone and grass or paving material and ground cover. A lovely touch in this image is the addition of these sculptural features that echo the colour and style of the paving.
