Paving

Need more entertaining space? No worries! Just add a paved patio area to your back or front garden this weekend! Paving is such a simple addition and in many cases, requires no specialist tools. Unlike concrete, paving is very DIY friendly and far more aesthetically pleasing. Check out this great article about why paving is the Superior Surface Treatment in landscaping.

There are a multitude of paving styles and designs to choose from, be it the colour, texture or laying pattern, all of which can alter the feel of your finished project. A great resource to get your project planning underway is here: What’s Your Paving Style?

Like retaining walls, paving can be a large undertaking and only small areas should be attempted over the course of just one weekend. An area up to 6 metres by 6 metres is achievable depending on the condition of the area you’re starting with.

If your area is level and clear you should be good to go. Plan ahead. Order your gear for earlier in the week and write yourself a checklist. Go through and make sure everything large or heavy like sand, base and the pavers are onsite ready to go. Tools and small accessories can always be picked up over the weekend.

If you’re starting with an existing paved area that will need clearing always allow more time. Perhaps clear the first weekend and pave over the next. Likewise, if there is plenty of ground work to be done in getting level, sorting drainage or reconfiguring the space add an extra weekend to ease the stress.

Once you’re ready to get started, drop into our Landscape Design and Selection Centre to see hundreds of paving options from Brisbane’s best suppliers.
