Ideas For Paving And Landscaping Adelaide Gardens.
Front garden and backyard renovations are common place across Adelaide, with many home owners looking at adding value to their home with outdoor living areas they can enjoy more often throughout the year.
With such a huge variety of pavers to choose from catering to all budgets, including paving and landscaping together when updating front gardens and backyards is very popular.
Take a look at the premium paving and landscaping Adelaide residents have requested, completed by paving contractors from Visual Landscape Gardening using local Adelaide pavers.
Paving Driveways Ideas
Clay pavers are very strong driveway pavers and ideal for when heavy vehicles will be driving over them. Classic red brick contrasts well with white, tying in with homes that also have red roofs.
When paving and landscaping Adelaide new homes, more modern looking larger format pavers can be used.
A good coat of sealer immediately after they have been laid will help protect your pavers from staining, especially if there are trees that drop their leaves close by.
Paving Paths Ideas
When paving Adelaide gardens, paving contractors from Visual Landscape Gardening always look for ways to integrate attractive paving ideas that are low maintenance.
Paving Around Pools Ideas
Hewnstone make a range of large format pool pavers with matching coping, ideal for paving around a pool. When paving and landscaping a back garden with a pool, the pavers chosen should have some texture to them, or coated with a non-slip treatment so they don’t become slippery when wet.
Having a landscape design in place, complete with a colour scheme will help when choosing pavers around the pool. Natural colours are popular and put the focus on the swimming pool.
If you have pool water features, such as a Water Blade starting in a dark slate wall before entering the pool, a light coloured pool paver contrasts beautifully.
For a modern look, large format grey pavers will do the trick, especially with aluminium privacy screens and grey furniture. Chlorine can mark and stain your pavers, so sealing your pavers after they’ve been laid is highly recommended to keep them looking great for years to come.
Paving Under A Verandah
Paving and landscaping a back garden and under a verandah looks clean and tidy plus more spacious when the same paver is used throughout. Under the verandah, pavers of different sizes add interest and strength. To keep your pavers looking like new for years to come, especially if outdoor kitchens or BBQ’s are near, seal your pavers as soon as they have been laid.
Contrasting with the stone retaining wall, red and white pebbles and Pink Flax make a stunning garden design that is very low maintenance.
The garden bed was planted out with plants chosen to give a sensory delight, as well as requiring little water.
Light coloured, large format pavers under a verandah increases the feeling of space. A dark grey retaining wall with grey pavers provides a strong contrast, especially against the artificial grass.
Paving And Landscaping Tips:
With spiralling water costs and our hectic lifestyle, adding low maintenance landscaping elements is an important consideration with any new landscape design.
Size, shape and colour all need to be considered, or let Alby and the team of licensed paving contractors from Visual Landscape Gardening offer their paving ideas if you’re looking at paving and landscaping your Adelaide garden.
Budget is always important. You can still have a great looking design at a cheaper price by selecting cheaper pavers. Concrete pavers, available in different colours can be used with contrasting colours like artificial grass, or complementary colours like you see in the Good Neighbour Fence to create a very appealing area.
Paver maintenance can be kept to a minimum if your pavers are sealed with a quality commercial grade sealer as soon as possible.
Cleaning pavers is not that hard if accidents do happen. Sealing your pavers will make maintaining them a breeze and keep them looking great for many years, before you’ll need to re-seal them.
