What is the best Paving choice?

Updated: Apr 20


Paving and the choice of paving is very subjective. There are so many choices, from brick and concrete paving to natural stone and more. Beyond the paving choice there are patterns, what will match your property and your needs for the paved area you will have. Branching Out Landscape and Design has a gallery filled with images of our projects and we have many more available for you to view offline.

Common Areas for Paving:

  • Pool Surrounds

  • Pathways

  • Driveways

  • Patio

  • Entryway

  • Seating area etc.

Travertine paving

Above you can see a job we completed with brick paving, sandstone retaining wall and timber deck at the rear of a property. The brick paving has been installed in a herringbone pattern which is very common when laying brick paving. It is a very practical style and perfect for pathways, driveways and more.

The benefits of brick paving:

  • Very durable

  • Long Lasting

  • Non Slip

  • Easy to clean

  • Maintains colour and look

Why use a professional to lay your pavers

You may think that you can complete paving yourself - depending on your skill set this may be possible but it is important to remember that it is far more than just placing your paving onto a flat surface.

A landscape professional has been trained to ensure that your surface:

  • Will drain properly

  • Will last a very long time

  • Will not sink or become uneven over time

  • Will remain looking as you expect it to

  • Will be easy to maintain

The benefits of natural stone paving

Natural Stone Paving is beautiful and incredibly durable. It will stand the test of time and it can be more expensive than a simple concrete paver. When you take into consideration the value it will add to your property plus the beauty that is retained over time, it is not that much more expensive.

  • It adds value to your property

  • Naturally beautiful

  • Sustainable and renewable

  • Will retain colour over time

  • Durable and low maintenance

  • Generally non slip

  • Generally front resistant

  • Incredibly versatile

Natural Stone Paving

You may have a clear idea of what you would like for your property or you may be unsure.

Either way - speak to a professional.
