Paving plays a crucial role in enhancing the visual appeal of any outdoor space and 2023 is seeing some exciting new trends in the world of paving. Let’s take a look at three that are gaining popularity right now.
Natural stone is all the rage when it comes to paving in 2023. Thanks to its timeless beauty, durability, and functionality, it has become immensely popular with homeowners. Whether it’s a traditional limestone or an exotic granite, natural stone allows you to create a unique and elegant look for your outdoor space.
Standard square or rectangular patio pavers have been making way for geometric patterns this year. Eye-catching hexagons, diamonds, are seeing increasing demand, as are intricate mosaics that can lend a touch of creativity and personality to your outdoor area.
As eco-consciousness continues to grow as a factor in purchasing decisions, sustainable materials are becoming more ever popular for paving. Alternative paving materials such as recycled concrete, rubber pavers, and permeable paving not only contribute to a greener environment but will also add a modern and chic touch to your outdoor space.
Creating a beautiful and functional domestic garden is a top priority for many homeowners, with three trends to the fore right now in terms of what customers are asking for and looking at.
Limited garden space means vertical gardening is becoming a popular choice for urban dwellers. Whether it’s a living wall covered in lush foliage or vertical planters hanging from balconies, this trend makes great use of even the smallest spaces and adds a wow factor to any garden.
There is a growing emphasis on creating gardens that support local biodiversity, so native and pollinator-friendly plants are increasing in popularity. Native plants usually require less maintenance and will also provide food and shelter for local pollinators, birds, and insects.
Incorporating these plants into your garden will not only make it aesthetically pleasing but also benefit the ecosystem of yout garden and the local natural environment.
Already popular in up-and-coming towns like Todmorden, more and more people are incorporating edible plants into their domestic gardens. Not only do you get joy of growing your own food, but edible landscaping also adds texture, colour, and vibrancy to your outdoor space. Imagine a mix of fruit trees, vegetable beds, and herb gardens, creating a feast for the eyes and the taste buds. You might never run out of mint again!
Patios are outdoor living spaces that offer a perfect blend of comfort and style and can bridge the gap between your indoor and outdoor spaces. Here are some of the top patio ideas for 2023:
Patios are no longer just a place for dining as homeowners transform their patios into cozy outdoor lounge areas. Comfy cushions and warm lighting can create a space that is just perfect for relaxation and socialising. With the right furniture and décor selections, your patio can be an extension of your living room.
Fire pits and fireplaces are among the features that are increasingly popular patio additions this year. They create a warm and inviting atmosphere and enable you to enjoy your outdoor space even on chilly summer and autumn evenings. Few things can be better that gathering around a fire with friends and family, creating lasting memories.
Take your patio to the next level by incorporating an outdoor kitchen and you can grill your favourite foods while enjoying the fresh air, garden scents, and scenic views. Whether it’s a built-in BBQ, a pizza oven or an outdoor food and drinks bar, there are endless possibilities to create a functional and stylish outdoor cooking area.
These trends are gaining momentum and inspiring homeowners to transform their outdoor spaces. Remember, landscaping is a creative process, so feel free to mix and match ideas to create a space that reflects your personal style and brings you closer to nature.
