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