Different Patio Materials

The decision you make when choosing the materials for your new patio are going to have the biggest impact on the finished install as well as the price, so it tends to be the most time spent area for clients.

There are so many different options now from concrete paving through to Resin Bound systems, imported sandstones and Porcelain that its quite understandable that clients can get overwhelmed with the choice.

The links below will give you some examples of materials but we certainly suggest that you take some time to visit different paving suppliers websites such as – Bradstone, Marshalls, Natural Paving, Brett and Stonemarket to get some ideas and start to at least eliminate what you don’t want.

We have good relationships with many of the local material suppliers many of which have display areas and we also have over 70 different Resin Bound blends on display at our Peterborough showroom.

Patio Shapes and Styles

Use and Size

This may initially sound a daft question to ask but you would be surprised how many clients have got carried away thinking about materials and have forgotten to really think about what they will be using their patio area for and as a consequence what their ideal size would be.

Is the area simply going to be used by a couple of people to chill of an evening, or is it going to be used as a dinning area or entertaining area for a large family or parties?

Usually a 3m x 3m patio area will comfortably sit a table of 4 or even 6 but beware of enclosing the area with a dwarf wall or raised beds should you have more guests and need to spill out onto the garden.


The most convenient place to have a patio is usually right next to the house. This makes things like transporting food and drink when entertaining a lot more easier than having to walk down the garden, but this isn’t always going to be the best option.

It may well be that the area that receives the most sunlight is at the rear of the garden or that you want to enjoy the aesthetics of your garden in which case a patio designed away from the house incorporating a pathway might be the answer.


The shape of your patio will ultimately be down to personal preference and practicality but we recommend utising curves if your install location allows and more rectangular shapes if you need to make full use of the available space.
