What’s hot in the world of paving? Th­ese con­tem­po­rary fin­ishes are turn­ing heads

Gardening Australia - - EXPERT ADVICE -

1. Nat­u­ral tim­ber Rather than seal­ing decks or wooden seat­ing or struc­tures with a stain, hard­wood is be­ing left to go grey, so you re­ally en­joy the nat­u­ral, sil­very fin­ish of age­ing tim­ber.

2. Ash­lar or French-pat­terned paving This dis­tinc­tive style of us­ing dif­fer­ent size pavers can be rus­tic or mod­ern, de­pend­ing on the pavers, and fits well into any lay­out. 3. Crazy paving (left) or flag­ging paving Ir­reg­u­lar-sized pavers are cut and laid in a puz­zle-like for­ma­tion with a vis­i­ble mor­tar join, de­liv­er­ing an in­for­mal look by cel­e­brat­ing the stone in its nat­u­ral state.
