Traditional & Cottage Garden Paving Ideas
Whether you are looking to create an English cottage garden or a traditional garden setting, we hope that the ideas below will give you some inspiration for the type of paving you wish for your garden.
Antique Style Paving
Antique style paving is formed from a natural stone material that has been 'tumbled' to give an attractive, aged appearance to the stone. This process rounds the edges of the stone and softens the ridges to create a time-worn appearance, especially suited to older style properties where a modern material would look out of place.

Cobble & Courtyard Paving
Cobble setts look great in a courtyard garden or make an interesting effect when interspersed within a large area of paving flags. Cobble setts are often made from natural sandstone, slate and limestone and more recently, clay has become a popular material as a result of its rich, earthy tones. Cobble sett paving creates a heavily textured look which suits the busy and colourful design concepts associated with a traditional cottage garden.

Natural limestone paving has a gently riven and textured surface and comes in three predominant shades of dark grey to black, mid blue grey and creamy buttermilk tones. Its surface is flatter than sandstone so is often favoured when a less ridges finish is required. Limestone paving offers good value and comes in both a standard natural finish or an antique, tumbled finish to suit.

Natural limestone with its dusty buff yellow, grey tones is an ideal paving material to create a tuscan feel within your garden. The mellow buttermilk, soft dove grey and occasional ochre colourings are reminiscent of old French farmhouses, introducing a rustic charm to your garden. Limestone is available in both traditional and antique, tumbled finishes.
Natural Riven Sandstone Paving
Natural riven sandstone is available in a wealth of colour variations to suit all styles of garden and the good news is that the price of natural sandstone is often better value than its concrete counterpart. Natural sandstone colours vary from light silver grey and buff through to rich terracotta, lilac and dark mocha brown and grey shades offering a colour palette to suit any garden. As it weathers, it often appears similar to traditional yorkstone paving, but with a much more reasonable price tag.
