Let Lush Pave the Way
Choosing the right paving material is one of the most important decisions you will make concerning your garden. It must withstand your family’s foot traffic for years to come and more often than not, pavers act as a focal point for your garden oasis. The right paving material can add much needed colour and texture. The pattern itself should complement the natural design of your outdoor living area.
Choose from quarried stone or composite material
The most common paving materials fall under two main categories: composite material or stone. Composite materials are generally brick or concrete pavers that are processed and moulded. Quarried stone – like slate and granite is dug from the earth and then shaped by cutting, crushing or splitting. The amount of choices can be overwhelming so Lush will let you know the advantages and disadvantages of both.

The Advantages of Stone Garden Pavers
Stone is one of the most versatile and durable of garden paving materials. It can come in any shape, size, colour or texture. If you want a unique meandering pathway to your garden oasis or simply want pavers laid down for a formal patio, there is a stone paving material out there for you.
One trick of the trade is to always check out the colour of the stone when its wet – as there can be a drastic change that might not suit your needs. You may also want to choose stones that aren’t rounded or have a polished finish, because these types of pavers can become very slippery during Auckland’s winter weather. It is important to note that this type of material comes at a higher cost than composite materials.
Composite Materials like concrete and brick won’t break the bank
Composite materials are not only easier on the budget, but they offer more flexibility than stone pavers. They are much easier to install because they are molded to specific dimensions. Much like stone, composite materials can come in any size, shape, colour and texture. Poured concrete is one of the most durable paving options out there and can take on any shape. Brick may be one of the oldest types of composite paving materials, but it still has pizazz. Whatever material you choose for your garden, the team at Lush will ensure that it is built to last.
