No matter how large or small a garden is it can be enhanced with just the right paving design. S&N Granite offers natural paving stones for gardens in limestone, granite, cobble and sandstone. The paving stones can be custom made to go perfectly with the colours, textures, sizes, shapes and location of any garden. S&N paving materials are shaped by expert and experienced stone masons.
While all of the paving stones are beautiful, they have unique characteristics that make them ideal for natural paving for the garden. Granite is tough and durable and can withstand traffic. Limestone can come in blue, black or brown and can make quite a contrast to the colour of foliage and flowers in a garden. Sandstone is also available in different colours and resists weathering. It’s tough enough for driveways, as well. Cobbles add texture and are good for infilling joints. Cobbles also help the visitor in the garden get a better grip during wet or icy days.
There are many ways to design with these paving stones. For example, a long and narrow garden with a seating area might benefit from slabs of pale granite interspersed the brick or cobbles to contrast with the hues of herbaceous plants. A small, walled in garden filled with roses might benefit from an area of random granite pavers where ground covers are allowed to flourish in the jointing. A town garden that’s hidden behind the house might benefit from natural paving. This can take the form of a circular design of gray Kandela sandstone around a pool with pink flowered rushes or water lilies. The area can be further beautified by arrangements of potted plants that can be brought in during the winter. A property can also have interconnecting paved paths through the grass that link different areas of the garden.
