We all cherish our gardens. They’re spaces filled with both memories from the past and opportunities for the future but maintaining them can be a bit of a pain. Constantly trimming the grass, raking up the leaves, and treating areas of grass that just won’t grow can be tiresome and frustrating, leading you to leave your garden spaces to become unloved and fall into disarray. You aren’t alone in doing so – we’ve all been there at one time or another – but it’s never too late to breathe new life into your garden! Find out how you can revitalise your outdoor areas with inventive paving solutions by reading on below.
When it comes to the garden, every inch matters; space is at a premium, so you want to do as much as you can with your limited square footage. To do this, you have to look for ways that you can optimise the space that you have available so that you can make the most of the space at your disposal. Paved walkways can help you to split your garden into elegant sections; this allows you to create defined, yet seamless areas that make your home the perfect place to entertain on those gorgeous summer afternoons. Whether it’s a weaving path from your door to the base of your garden, or straight walkways to connect each zone of your garden, there are options to suit everyone’s ideas.
As mentioned above, an entire grass garden can be a real task to care for, with so much time and effort needed to keep it looking in tip-top shape all year round. Brett Landscaping offers stylish, modern solutions that offer you the most convenient solutions available, with the low maintenance stone surface taking mere minutes to clean and care for – a simple jet wash with soap should be enough to rid your paving of any dirt, dust, or mud that might have collected! We’re not saying you need to completely forget about lawned areas, though – a soft grass section can be the perfect place to relax with a picnic, play with your children, or just unwind whilst sunbathing – it’s all about finding the perfect balance in the groundwork that you choose to lay.
Grass wears out over time. It’s a simple fact of nature that grass will begin to tire and die out if the conditions aren’t correct; lawns need the right amount of water, light, and fertiliser needed to ensure that they grow evenly and healthily. Paved alternatives, and in particular Porcelain Paving, are a fantastic option for those who are looking for durability in their landscaping. Porcelain Paving not only requires fewer resources to care for, it’s non-porous too; this keeps the upkeep at a minimum and lifespan at a maximum!
In the modern world, every step we can take to preserve the environment helps, so opting for a resource like Porous Paving, which is more sustainable thanks to it’s permeable nature, can be a great long-term step to take for any household. On top of all of these enticing features, paving can also be one of the most decorative features that you can add to your garden. Unifying pathways can give a sculptured effect to any space, or a path lining the outer bounds of the garden can create a botanical garden-like setting when lined with towering trees and foliage – this is an incredibly picturesque way to finish any landscaping project. No matter whether you’re looking for an easy, yet creative way to combine spaces or a comprehensive system that makes the most of your home’s natural landscape, paved garden spaces can be the ideal way to achieve the outdoor aesthetic that you’ve dreamed of.
