Getting Down to the Ground Rules of Outdoor Flooring

Rob Byrne - Friday, December 28, 2012

Summer is on its way and it’s time to think about sprucing up the garden. Amongst the rose trellises and border plants, it’s worth thinking about your garden flooring too. Something can always be done to improve what’s already there, or you could even go the whole nine yards and invest in something gloriously stylish and durable like Indian sandstone paving or natural timber decking.

What Material?

Durability is a huge part of choosing the best flooring for the garden, especially in areas that see very heavy foot traffic like paths and decks. If you’re on a budget, investing in the most expensive hardwood decking across the whole outdoor space could be out of the question, but there are plenty of cheaper alternatives that blend textures, looks and budgets. Our planners love to use slate chippings around the border to add texture and creative style without blowing the budget.

Compatible Materials

Every material used in the garden should look great when viewed as a final project; after all, few folks choose a single feature, e.g. decking, and ignore the rest of the garden. Request samples from us so you can see which materials sit best with your current garden layout or proposed plan.
