Great Ideas for Terrace/Courtyard Paving

Natural stone paving provides you with a stylish yet functional way to transform an ordinary deck or patio into a fashionably elegant terrace or courtyard. Whether you prefer a traditional or contemporary style, a broad selection of colours, designs and patterns ensures that you find the ideal choice. Here are some of the latest and greatest ideas for paving that are drawing attention from discriminating home-owners.


Bordered with Style


For a small terrace or courtyard, an artful border gives the space a cosy and comfortable feeling that invites family and friends to relax and unwind. Stone paving borders in a contrasting colour or size put the focus on the paving slabs in the central design. Just as an attractive area rug sets the tone of an indoor room, an interesting border helps define the style of your courtyard or terrace.


Living Mortar


Combining paved areas with planters and flower beds has been fashionable for some time now, but forward-thinking landscape designers are testing the limits of this ongoing trend. Modern terraces may include asymmetrical paving patterns that incorporate patches of lawn or that transition seamlessly into a water feature. Large paving slabs may be placed wide apart, with ground covers used as a kind of living mortar.


Unified Design


Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor areas with paving designs is another popular trend. Consider choosing paving slabs for your terrace or courtyard that reflect the colours, floor pattern and architectural style of your homes interior. This makes it easy to extend your indoor living spaces into the great outdoors.
