“This plan for the back garden is 20 years a growing. At this stage I suppose I want something that’s easy to maintain.”
The Dooley Family Patio:
The Dooley family chose Cambridge paving flagstones by Kilsaran in colour Ivory for their main patio area to perfectly recreate the look and feel of classic limestone slabs. To complement this, they also used Lismore kerbing as a step riser and Slane paving blocks in colour Charcoal as a lawnmower edge. The Dooley’s opted for a traditional look that will never go out of fashion and the products they chose come with the added benefit of being hard-wearing and durable in all kinds of weather.
The Dooley’s then added some potted plants/planting to give the garden an extra splash of colour and patio furniture from Woodies to finish off the garden and make it into a beautiful outdoor living space that they can use for entertaining or simply to enjoy as a family.
Top Tips for Any Paving Patio/Project:
If you’re planning to revamp your own garden this Summer, remember to keep your ground plan as simple as possible, choose one main material for paving preferably if it’s a small space and consider that your choice of paving materials can help to brighten a dark site or reflect light into your home.
“We have a Woodie’s store down the road so I go down and have a look and walk around. The staff are very friendly and they give us any advice on plants and that so it’s great to have that on your doorstep.”
“John enjoys DIY which really in our house is ‘destroy it yourself. I like art and design so I suppose I have the strength in the design and concepts.”
It takes 20 years sometimes to do it (…) It’s another room to live in, to enjoy, to relax in, to share with family and friends.”
