Patios can be any shape or size, due to demand for new and more interesting products there are plenty of textures and materials to choose from. The most popular options are sandstone or limestone
Sandstone is the most commonly used material. Quarried in India and shipped all over the world. It is a beautiful and very cost effective choice. Left with a riven pattern for a more traditional look or sawn and sandblasted for a slick modern feel.
Limestone has a smoother finish, offers outstanding visual appeal, dramatic shades and distinctive natural veining plus it offers superb strength and durability.
For a very traditional well established garden a reclaimed material can be used such as York stone, brick or clay pavers.
