Do you have a paving design in your mind? Hard landscaping is the backbone of your garden - the architecture which sets off the rest of your design. When it comes to laying a patio or paved area in the garden, you might have in mind a regular grid of square or rectangular slabs, all the same size and colour. But a paved space is much more than a functional choice. Using one or at most two styles of paving throughout your design pulls it together and makes the garden work as a whole, so choose carefully from the selection in our garden centre in Trowbridge-Wiltshire. Please see below for more details on our product ranges. If you have any questions about our product range, then please contact us.

- Paving slabs: you'll find both pre-cast concrete or natural stone in our garden centre. Match slabs with the sandstone, limestone or granite of your local area so your garden blends into the wider landscape.
- Cobbles and setts give a timeless, fabulously textural surface. Use them to break up expanses of smoother paving or create a cobble mosaic in different colours for a spectacular centrepiece.
- Brick is a great choice for city gardens, echoing the buildings around it and linking your garden to the house. Lay across a path to make your garden look wider, or along it for the illusion of length.
- Gravel is easy to lay and very versatile. It's also permeable, allowing excess rainwater to run through - use in ribbons between other paving materials to drain surface water away.
When it comes to laying a paved area in the garden, you might have in mind a regular grid of square or rectangular slabs, all the same size and colour. But a paved space is much more than a functional choice. By playing with different colours, textures and laying patterns you can create interest and atmosphere. Add colourful gravels, planting and subtle lighting to create a space that feels alive and blends the boundaries between indoors and outdoors. It’s surprisingly easy to devise a practical space that’s in-keeping with your home and garden but also makes a beautiful statement. The staff from Trowbridge Garden Centre would love to share some simple ideas with you, that will help to elevate your patio designs, so you can plan an outdoor space to be proud of.
