Patios & Pathways

Hard landscaping such as patios, pathways and walls can be used to create an outdoor room or direct visitors on a defined route through a garden.

Paying careful attention to simplicity and harmony is often a good approach. Choosing a restricted palette of compatible materials and textures, rather than using too many elements, may produce a far more attractive result.


We can lay patios using a variety of materials. They fall into two main categories, man-made products and natural products.

Companies such as Stone-market, Marshalls, Top Pave and Brett Pave supply concrete slabs. For links to these companies websites, see our links page.

Natural stone slabs have some important advantages compared to their concrete counterparts. They are more durable, do not fade or discolour, have unique details and can easily be shaped to suit most needs. We use environmentally and ethically sourced stone from local suppliers.


Paths can be made from many different materials, including patio slabs (man-made or natural), block paving, tarmac or gravel. Stepping-stones can be very effective when laid into a lawn.

Natural stone paving

Natural stone is highly durable and exceeds the lifespan of man-made concrete paving. A variety of distinctive layouts can be achieved, choosing from a huge selection of authentic stone varieties, making it possible to create a unique design statement that introduces natural beauty, colours and textures to your garden. We use environmentally and ethically sourced stone from local suppliers.

Man-made paving

A wide range of premium and budget lines are available.
