Using paving slabs to add a statement edge to your gardens, patios and walkways

The right kind of paving tiles for your outdoor areas is an important consideration, especially since you have to choose the right material. Whether you are an avid gardener, love entertaining in your garden, or simply like to sip a peaceful cup of tea in your backyard every morning, the right ambience is vital for you to enjoy our outdoor areas.

When picking paving blocks, think about durability, colour, texture and finish, and pick the one that seems most suitable to you. We offer an extensive range of patio stones for you to choose from, based on their characteristics and your style.

Natural vs Man-Made: Which paving slabs are best for outdoor areas?

Natural stone paving slabs are often the most preferred, since they’re extremely hard-wearing and can last for years without damage. Natural stones have been around for centuries, and are considered immensely valuable for the natural production process, and unique colours and patterns.

All our slabs are sourced ethically and eco-consciously, from dedicated quarries at specific locations across the world. Every piece goes through a round of finishing and polishing, while retaining the natural hues, patterns and veins. Since the stones are all formed within the Earth, every individual piece is unique and unrivalled.

We stock different types of natural stones all through the year:

  • Limestone paving
  • Indian sandstone paving
  • Slate paving
  • Granite paving
  • Quartzite paving

All of these are extremely popular for use in exterior paving, and are available in varied textures and colours.

Outdoor porcelain paving slabs are standardised man-made stones that are created through an intricate process that involves putting clay through immense heat to create beautiful porcelain stones that are almost identical to natural stones. Man-made stones are rife with benefits - they are durable, easy to maintain and scratch-resistant. Our porcelain slabs for paving are made by hand, by experienced stonesmiths.

Size range - Small and large garden slabs for luxurious outdoor living

Depending on the area that needs to be paved, use a paving slab calculator to determine the right size of the slab you need. Try out the calculator on our website to ensure you make the right decision. Our products are available in sizes of 900 x 600 and 600 x 600 paving slabs in thicknesses of 20mm and 22mm.

How to lay outdoor slabs - A quick guide to installing patio slabs

Installing paving tiles can be relatively easy if you are hands-on with small home projects. You will need to be precise and patient, since you are looking for tiles that last for the long term. For beginners, here are 4 easy steps for laying paving slabs.

  1. Prepare a foundation - First, mark out the area you want to cover with slabs and dig out all soil and vegetation upto a depth of about 150mm. Layer in a sub-base mix to about 100mm and flatten it till it’s firm and flat. If you are using 900 x 600 paving slabs, you will need a bigger foundation.
  2. Create a concrete mix - Prepare a clay-like mix of concrete and sand in 1:3 ratio. Layer the mix up to a 40mm depth to prep the base.
  3. Lay your slabs - Before you go about laying your slabs, dampen them so they don’t dry out too quickly and give you some time to make adjustments. Lay the slabs one by one in the paving area and hammer them down lightly. Leave a gap of about 10mm between the tiles. Then let it set for about 24 hours.
  4. Fill the gaps - Fill in the gaps between the garden paving slabs with a jointing mix to create a smooth even surface.
