A client in Abingdon had a patio area at the end of their garden, which lead to a much-loved summer house. But the paving was cracked and the surrounding gravel was tired and dowdy and it was time to change things up. They called in our landscaping team to spruce up their outdoor space and reclaim the secret courtyard garden tranquillity it once had – with a contemporary twist.

Armed with a brief to replace their patio area with modern paving and contrasting decorative gravel, we suggested lovely light Gigante stone effect porcelain paving by Digby as a crowd-pleasing starting point. Our landscaping experts knew that this excellent porcelain paving – fringed with a burnished-apricot marbled ember granite sett and finished with Bubbenhall quartz, offering a sophisticated palette of pink through to brown – would produce that fresh fairy-tale look with a “happily ever after” elegance. 

The AWBS landscaping team removed the old paving and gravel from site and installed the base for the new patio in front of the summer house and the path leading to the house. We then laid 20m2 of porcelain paving and pathway in a t-shape, edged these with ember granite setts and added a sprinkle of Bubbenhall decorative gravel magic to the surrounding areas.

Offering an ultra-modern look, outstanding durability, a weather-proof nature and a flat textured surface for grip under-foot in all conditions, Digby’s Gigante porcelain slabs were the ideal choice. Not only that, the cool neutral paving laid in neat contemporary lines framed by warm-toned tumbled granite produced the style statement they were after to complement their small space and adored summer house. The new paving solution not only looks fantastic but is also easy for the Oxfordshire family to maintain and keep in tip-top condition.
