Paving Stones In The Garden
Working in your garden can be a really great way to relax. There is just something soothing about working on something that is only for your benefit. Many people find just being out in nature, surrounded by the smells of the flowers and freshly turned earth really relaxing. There are plenty of things that you can put into your garden and incorporate into the landscaping. One of those things is pavers. Here are a few ideas on where to use pavers.
You might have a set of garden furniture under a favourite tree or something like that. However, you do not want to have people traipsing all over your lawn to get to the seating. This is where making a pathway from paving stones can really make the difference. People seem to automatically walk on pathways if they are there. Ladies in high heels will definitely appreciate not having to try to tiptoe over the grass to avoid sinking into the earth. This kind of pathway is also easy to maintain as all you have to do is cut the grass that will be inclined to grow up between the paving stones. There is no gravel to replace or any concern about weeds causing problems with the layout of paving bricks.
In garden beds
Some people like to create patterns and borders in their flower beds. It can be really pretty to have pavers which have interesting patterns or shapes in your flower beds. It is something a bit different and a cheap way to introduce something different to your garden. You will only have to wash them down every now and again to make sure that they do not get covered with earth as you garden. This is not much and does not take much time.
Around ponds and water features
The one problem that water features have is that they tend to splash. Your flowers and lawn do not always appreciate having this much water and will suffer from the constant wetting. You can avoid this problem by using paving stones or steppingstones as a border around your water feature. The stones will not mind being constantly wet and they will stop the water from destroying your plants. The stones also look very neat and if you manage to use the right colours then you will have a great looking barrier between your wonderful water feature and your delicate plants.
These are just a few of the ways that you can use pavers and steppingstones in your garden. I am certain that you will be bale to come up with a few more quite easily if you just stop for a while and think about your garden and how you would like it to look. You should also get more info about driveway paving. There are no hard and fast rules that dictate how you are supposed to use paving stones. It is only convention that dictates that you use them in your garden as a pathway. Use your imagination and really make your garden your own and use paving stones however you feel suits you.
