When it comes to designing a commercial or residential outdoor space, the possibilities are endless. The choice of materials, patterns, textures and colours open up a world of opportunity to create a space that is unique, stylish and meets the necessary requirements.
Whether you have a brief to adhere to, or you are looking for inspiration, block paving has proven to be an outstanding choice for commercial projects time and time again. As a paving installer, architect or developer you are no doubt looking for something of great quality and aesthetics, as well as ease of installation. Brett Landscaping takes a look at the benefits of block paving and how it can used.
An overview of block paving
Block paving is functional and practical, but it can also add style to an outdoor environment. It can be a particularly great choice for commercial spaces, such as retail space, distribution centres, local authorities and for house developers. As such, block paving is just as well suited to residential projects.
You will find a huge choice of colours and styles, from rustic and aged to clean and contemporary. Depending on the project at hand, you can choose from single size packs or mixed sizes to help you create a unique finished look.
Block paving for trafficking requirements
Block paving is often the favoured choice for high traffic areas, as it is incredibly durable. Block paving can withstand wear and tear, and the harsh elements of the changing seasons such as rain, snow and heat. It is perfectly suited to standing up to the pressure of vehicles passing over it, from family cars to commercial vehicles.
Whether you’re looking to improve a commercial area or you need the right material for a commercial traffic area, block paving can provide the right balance of functionality and stylish aesthetics.
Block paving for patios and walkways
Creating an outdoor space for a commercial area or for a home takes careful consideration and design planning. The patio area or walkways can make a huge difference to the layout of the space and set the style of the area, so it’s important to get it right.
Block paving is available in a great variety of styles, with colours ranging from natural hues of autumn gold and charcoal to contemporary shades of dark basalt and silver granite. You also have the chance to mix and match block paving to create a unique appearance, which can help to create distinctive walkways and separate zones.
You will also find that block paving can offer a sustainable solution for your outdoor space. Permeable concrete paving is available, that will allow surface water to drain away in order to avoid pooling water or flooding.
Block paving can also be used for the finishing touches such as steps and kerbs, helping you to achieve a multi-level design for an eye-catching environment. There are many matching kerbs to choose from in block paving collections, allowing you to create a seamless space with added detail.
Depending on your needs, block paving is available in high kerbs to create steps which can help to distinguish between walkways and entrances.
