Now that summer is finally here, it is time to think about having a patio installed so you can (finally) sit in the garden and enjoy those sunny afternoons and evenings.  When considering a patio many people think about using traditional paving slabs either in one size or mixed. However, for a modern, contemporary take on your patio area, why not think about using block paving?

Patio_Mont01The patio shown has been created using Marshall’s® traditional tumbled paving in Autumn Gold with a soldier course in standard block paving. The use of railway sleepers as a border adds a fresh contemporary feel to the garden area. This has been continued with the use of block paving within railway sleepers to build a step area.

Three sizes of tumbled paving have been laid randomly. The end result giving a modern, elegant feel making an  ideal area for entertaining friends or for relaxing with the newspaper and a cold drink on a sunny afternoon.
