Top 5 Paving Trends in 2020

Building the perfect paving for your home can make a huge difference to your property. With a new decade well underway it’s the perfect time to spruce up your garden patio and banish those winter blues.

We have summarised some of the biggest and best paving trends that are set to be popular in 2020, all of which are guaranteed to add value to your home.


1) Block Paving

Traditional block paving is expected to be hugely popular for many buyers when designing their driveway. It boasts character and is easy to maintain, which is perfect for those looking to make a great impression. Here at Landscape World, we have a selection of natural stone blocks which have been tumbled to give it a smooth edge. See our beautiful blend of warming Silver Birch natural stone paving.


2) Permeable Paving

With the threat of flooding on the rise, people are becoming more and more conscious about protecting their homes from the devastating effects of heavy rainfall. Understandably, in the UK permeable paving is growing in popularity and set to be the main focus in 2020.

Permeable driveways, in particular, are the perfect solution if you’re looking for a sustainable and cost-effective driveway. Our range of permeable driveways will create a reliable drainage system to help you effectively manage rainfall and minimise flooding.  

3) Porcelain Paving

Porcelain paving is set to be big this year! As well as looking great, this particular type of paving requires very little maintenance and can be enjoyed all year round. Formed by baking a mixture of sand, clay and other minerals at a high temperature, the material produced is highly durable and easy-to-use.

What’s more, because of its highly resistant nature, the paving is unlikely to stain or scratch. This means your patio can look great for longer! With that said, it is expected that this trend will be hugely popular for those who use their garden frequently, and those who move their garden furniture regularly.

Here at Landscape World, we offer a range of porcelain paving slabs, including the which are beautifully sleek and stylish. Available in four shades, there is an option for everyone’s outdoor space.

Other options include the Bradstone Aspero which is equally stunning. It is available in a patio pack, which features three different sized pavers for a more natural appearance. It is the perfect paving product to add that extra modern touch to your garden.


4) Textured Paving

There is no disputing that mixing and matching up textures will continue to generate a lot of interest throughout 2020. As well as looking good, this particular type of design adds a natural feel to your garden’s paving.

We particularly love the rustic charm of the contrasting worn and smooth textures of our Antique Natural Stone Paving pack, with dark brown and black shades with lighter markings of brown and dusky pink. The paving is a perfect backdrop for traditional landscape schemes.


 5) Limestone Paving

Limestone is a natural stone paving that not only looks stylish but also creates a durable, hardwearing and long-lasting surface. This makes it extremely popular with families and for withstanding the unpredictable British weather. Limestone paving stone dries quickly when it is wet and still remains slip resistant because of its textured surface.

At Landscape World we stock a wide collection limestone paving which is perfect for making your garden stand out from the crowd.
