3 garden pavement ideas to try right now

Are you tired of your dull garden? Know that you can make small improvements that can totally change the aspect of your house. When talking about the garden pavement, you have plenty of options to choose from, and you can find inspiration anywhere on the internet. So, here are the three best ways to design your garden pavement. 

Decorative stone

Decorative stones are not only beautiful, but they’re also beneficial. There’s a huge selection of them, from texture-enhancing cobblestone to round river rocks. Here are some great options for decorative stones:

  • Brick chips. They add a brighter tone contrasting other areas in your garden and are water and insect-resistant.
  • Cobblestone. They are mostly used for landscaping (surrounding footpaths and driveways) and ground cover (adds a different look to the garden).
  • Marble. Usually used as base rock for water fountains, garden containers and as landscape stone.
  • River rock. Beautifully shaped from the running river water, they’re perfect for preventing rain puddles and a clogged-up garden, but it’s best to avoid using them on sloped surfaces.

Another great improvement for your garden would be storgatestein that can even be installed on stairs and walls and are affordable. Granite slabs are especially great for stairs, entrances and terraces, as they’re not too smooth to become slippery. 

Quarry shale design  

If you’re looking for a more rustic vibe for your garden, you should try the quarry shale design. The irregular stones are easy to adapt to all kinds of garden projects. Plus, they’re timeless, and you won’t have to worry about maintenance too much. This design goes well with a garden full of plants and trees to contrast the messy look.

Installing bruddskifer is easy, and you can even shape the stones as you like. Outdoor paving and facades are the best places where you’d best use quarry shale stones. The natural elements of quartz and mica go well with small plants (especially alpines).

You can also make this project by having a crevice garden, where you can preserve water by having plants that thrive in hotter climates. 

Larvikite stones

These small, black stones will make your garden look exquisite. You can use them as curbstones and even for garden and foundation walls. Larvikite is considered to be the most environmentally friendly, and it can even be used as jewelry.

These stones can also come as brick blocks if you want to use them to make a solid wall around your garden. Larvikitt can be used in contrast with a green wall made from interlocking planting trays filled with voluminous plants. Creating a complete design wouldn’t be the same without lighting, and it would be best to use solar-powered garden lighting to avoid dangerous trailing wires.  

Finally, don’t forget about the decorations. In such an elegant landscape, you need to find the perfect furniture that would match the final look of the garden. Look for special textures for pillows and blankets, and don’t be afraid to try some bold colors for the decorations.
