Porcelain paving: The Benefits

The latest trend in garden paving, porcelain paving, has quickly become a popular choice amongst homeowners who prefer its modern look over the dated appearance of traditional stone. And this is a service that Aspects Landscaping now provide.

Below we will go into detail on some of the benefits.

Aesthetics

Porcelain paving all about aesthetics. Its sleek, polished surface looks great in any to any outdoor setting. The diverse range of colours, patterns and textures available ensures that there’s a porcelain style to suit every taste. Whether you’re dreaming of a Mediterranean courtyard or a minimalist urban garden, porcelain works

Beauty and Strength

One of the best qualities of porcelain paving lies in its ability to look good whilst being incredibly sturdy. This material is crafted under intense heat, creating a dense and durable surface that can withstand the rigours of the great outdoors.

Reduced maintenance

We regularly meet people who request a ‘maintenance-free’ garden design. While it is not possible to completely eliminate maintenance, we can significantly reduce the burden.

Porcelain paving offers just that – a seamless integration of looks and practicality. Its non-porous surface is resistant to stains, making accidental spills easy to clean. A simple sweep or hose down is all it takes to keep your outdoor haven looking immaculate.

Durability

If you decide to have your garden redesigned, it is likely going to cost a fair amount of money. So, it’s important to ensure that your chosen design will last. Our Bristol landscape gardeners highly recommend porcelain because unlike natural stone, it is manmade and has been engineered with durability in mind. So, although porcelain is a little more expensive in the short-term, the durability pays off.

Frost and slip resistant

Porcelain is suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation. It can be used in kitchens and bathrooms as well as in your outdoor paving. The advantage of porcelain is that it can withstand cold, wet or hot conditions, particularly at the height of winter when it is frosty outside.

Porcelain is frost resistant, so even on the coldest of days, you can enjoy your garden. It doesn’t absorb much water into the paving, unlike natural stone so it also is more resistant to freezing and cracking.

Colour

Natural stone paving, will discolour as time passes, through being exposes to the elements, making it look tired over time.

If you would like a patio that will not fade, then porcelain is the right choice. It does not discolour and is resistant to chemical spills too. Part of the manufacture means that they are less affected by the sun’s rays.

Our landscape gardeners in Bristol have completed a range of porcelain projects and always with a happy customer at the end.
