I don’t know why as a nation we don’t try to create more inspiring shapes with our patios than just rectangles bolted to the back of our houses. We should embrace paving and use more interesting shapes such as Paisley teardrops, diamonds, circles and ovals. You can make some phenomenal shapes just by cutting the tiles or by edging the paving with aggregate. Bradstone have a fabulous range of decorative stones which can go a long way to adding personality and character to your patio design.
You see, patios are not just about function; they are a feature too. You might even have space for more than one patio so you can catch both the morning and the evening sun. Use this to play with more than one design in the garden.
