Stunning Garden Designs Using Porcelain Paving

28 September 2020

Porcelain paving is becoming very popular for garden projects, thanks to its extreme versatility, wide range of styles and effects, and ease of care. At AWBS Landscaping we’ve transformed many gardens and outside spaces by using porcelain paving.

So, why do so many of our customers love porcelain so much?

To start with, porcelain paving is exceptionally versatile, and a great alternative to other materials. There are so many different styles to choose from and amazing replicas of other materials like wood and stone. Digital printing techniques have advanced so much over the last few years that it really is difficult to distinguish a natural wood or stone slab from a porcelain one.

Many of our customers like the rectified edges and consistent thickness of porcelain tiles, particularly when wanting to achieve a uniformed look to their garden. And the seamless transition from inside to outdoors is a big design trend that is easily achievable with porcelain paving.

Porcelain is very dense which makes it extremely resilient to weather, unlike some other materials, and this paving proved to be perfect for one of our customers to replace their rotten timber decking. Using stunning wood-effect porcelain tiles, we transformed their outside space – giving the wonderful authentic look of timber, with the high durability and water absorption that porcelain offers. Our clients were not only delighted with the look of their patio, but the low maintenance required to keep it looking as good as new.

The variety of effects of porcelain tiles and the ease of care were fundamental in another project we worked on for a customer. After building work on their home they were left with a messy and unusable garden. Combining fabulous stone-effect porcelain paving with artificial grass resulted in a highly stylish, durable and contemporary finish.

Using porcelain paving is a great way to instantly refresh a tired looking garden, making your outside areas a place to enjoy, without the hard work that can be involved in looking after real timber or stone. Another of our customers had a beautiful summerhouse at the end of their garden, but the path and gravel leading up to it was worn and unsightly. We offered them a fabulous solution with beautiful stone-effect porcelain tiles, finished off with decorative gravel. The paving was laid in neat, contemporary lines to perfectly complement the summerhouse, giving them a weather proof and textured surface for high-slip resistance in all weathers.
