Paved patios are a staple within most landscape designs - and we will run through some of the most important things to know when considering a paved patio in your Dream Landscape:


First things first - What is a Paved Patio?

Patios are typically stone or brick spaces in the landscape that are used as a solid foundation for outdoor activities.



The primary purpose of paved patios is to maximise the functionality (or functional capacity) of your landscape. Patios can be used as a gathering space for social events, as a lounging area, a dining area, a fire-pit or leisure area, and are often connected to a BBQ/alfresco under a pergola.


(the most common substitute for decking is paved patios - although, these two approaches can work in harmony together for the same landscape)


Patio types:

There are so many ways to form a patio:

  • you can use brick, marble, porcelain, limestone etc.

  • you can use big pavers, small pavers, rectangular, square, or round pavers.

  • you can lay pavers in many patterns - straight, stepping, crazy, french pattern etc.

  • you can choose from many different colour varieties - warm, cold, decorative etc.


Creative Patio Paving

As a staple element, patio designs are often mundane or generic. We are massive believers in taking design to the next level and here are a few simple ways to explode the aesthetics and functionality of your patio design.

  • Layout - consider how you will use the space on a day2day basis to best determine how the patio should be structured - understanding where you need ample space for seating or standing or walking etc. is a great starting point.

  • Shapes - forget squares and rectangles - if it suits your home, look for angles, curves or cutouts. Bring life to your patio so it stands out from the rest.

  • Lighting - one of the simplest tactics to elevate the experience of a space. Adding strip lights or spotlights around the patio offer functional benefits, but more importantly, offer a warm and inviting ambience to make your patio attractive for activities all hours of the day.

  • Features - a secret to an epic patio space is a feature tree built into the paving. There are many features that can be made, but the tree in the patio always captures attention.
