Paving Trends to Give Your Home Kerb Appeal

Gardens today are found to be a valuable extension of the home. Instead of just being a space to cook and eat for a few months of the British summer, new concepts and paving designs have allowed us to get more creative with our green spaces.

When looking at the value of your house on the market, the kerb appeal doesn’t just stop with a lick of fresh paint on the front door. More housebuilders find that a well designed block paving driveway or an attractive patio space is increasing both the selling potential and the value of their houses.

Do you want to spruce up the facade of your home and its green spaces for the upcoming New Year? Take a look at Landscape Worlds paving trends for 2019. With a little inspiration, you could pave your way to a more valuable home.

Block paving

The traditional block paving isn’t going anywhere. Buyers still find a huge appeal in an attractive block paving driveway, as it boasts character, warmth and charm. Here at Landscape World, we have natural stone block which has been tumbled to give it a smooth edge. 



Everyone loves the look of a wooden flooring patio, it’s warmth and style is on trend for the next year - however, real wood is not the most practical of flooring to have outside. With unpredictable British weather, wooden flooring can get damaged very quickly.




James Basson’s award-winning garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show last year grabbed everyone in the gardening worlds attention. His arrangement consisted of limestone tiles, which are making a bold return to British gardens this year.

Leading garden designers predict the trend of mixing different colours of limestone tiles together to create a warm and varied palette. Have a browse of our limestone paving in stock and make a big impact for the spring and summer seasons.


Textured Paving

Renowned garden designer Jane Finlay predicts textured paving to be the next big trend. According to her expertise, the irregularities and imperfections bring a natural element to small urban gardens.

We love the charm of the worn texture and smooth feel of reclaimed flagstones of our Stonemarket Vintage Stone Raven, with dark brown to black shades and lighter markings of brown and dusky pink. This paving is a perfect backdrop for traditional landscape schemes.

Trends are always moving forward and we at Landscape World are always keeping up. If you’re thinking about having a change for the new year, consider some new and beautiful paving designs for your garden.
