OUR TOP 10 DESIGN TIPS

1. What's the objectives?

Always have your goal in mind, you’ll be able to stay on track and keep a tighter rein on your budget.

2. Choose the right place

Think about where the sun is at different times of the day in your garden and whether there’s any view you want to be able to enjoy.

3. Size matters

It’s worth checking whether the furniture you want fits the area with plenty of room to walk around.

4. Have you considered zonal spaces?

Split levels with stepped areas can create separate zones for you to experiment with planting or use for different activities.

5. Suit your style

Choose something which works for you, and your home. Contemporary paving will probably suit modern homes better than period properties.

6. Stick to your budget

Set a limit of what you want to spend and stick to it. Remember to factor in the cost of a professional installer if you’re going to use one – as well as new planting or furniture.

7. Think about design

Check out the latest design trends online or in magazines. Porcelain is the ‘in’ material and concrete is now widely used to give some rugged industrial chic.

8. Drainage and access

If you’re installing everything yourself, consider access to your property, trees and drainage. A professional installer will ensure all groundwork and building regulations are covered.

9. Plan your paving

Even if you just put together a basic drawing of what you’re hoping to create, that will help. There’s a page at the back of this brochure for your ideas and where you can sketch out your plans.

10. Choosing materials

The question is concrete, natural stone or porcelain? Each one will help create a completely different look, so get to know the advantages they each have.
