Creative use of space will help you make the most of your garden
- and for the latest in hard-wearing perfection, it has to be porcelain
ooking for inspiration for your
garden this spring? Then Global
Stone may have the answer. A

the company has developed the market
in a way ﬁt for 21st century living.
As a nation, people are becoming
increasingly more discerning, travelling
further aﬁeld and experiencing different
cultures which is driving a desire for
new and improved lifestyles.
In 2016, Global Stone saw a major
shift in how gardens are used and the
products being bought, which led to
into increased demand for higherquality, easy to maintain products.
No matter what the size of your outside
space, whether it is a terrace, courtyard
or country estate, creative use of paving
can work wonders.
Creating zones or outdoor rooms will
help make the best of your space. Try
using large format porcelain paving to
create a patio for an outside kitchen or
barbecue area, where low-maintenance
properties, not to mention being
impervious to water, make it easy to
clean and resistant to salts, oils and
Clay pavers - just
right for restful
chemicals. Alternatively, try this style
around a pool or pond area. Its stylish,
slip-resistant, lightly textured surfaces
make it a perfect choice.
Indoors and out
circle and setts for
Smoke is ideal
for creating the
illusion of length
If you are looking to use your outdoor
space as an extension of your home,
both porcelain paving, with its matching
internal options, and natural slate
are ideal solutions, whether you desire
the contemporary or traditional look.
Finally, if your garden is small you
can use paving to make it seem a lot
longer by creating straight lines and
a focal point.
It may seem odd, but large paving
can create the illusion of space and is
ideal for the contemporary setting
- or you can use the more traditional
natural stone setts, pavers or circles
to create a restful seating area.
