Design Patterns for Garden Paving Projects

Design Patterns for Garden Paving Projects

When it comes to garden and patio paving designs there are a huge variety to choose from. They range from the purely basic, such as a stack bond, to the more adventurous multi-sized flag design such as a repeatable random. A simple guide to patio laying patterns is; the greater the number of flags sizes available, the greater the number of patterns and designs layouts that can be created. However, even with just a single flag size, it's possible to create different layouts or patterns.

For inspiration and garden paving design ideas, the Marshalls library of patio paving laying patterns is a great place to start. All Marshalls laying patterns are categorised into 4 groups, as defined by the filters below. These include random course, stretcher bond, repeatable random and other, which includes circles and octants.

Random course garden paving designs use different sizes of flags laid at random. However, it is important to avoid cross joints which can draw the eye to a specific point in the design. An example of a Marshalls product that works well with this type of paving design is Fairstone sawn sandstone.

Stretcher bond is the simplest offset paving pattern and is also known as a running bond or half bond. The joints are offset by exactly half the width of the paving flag. Marshalls Fairstone Kingsize garden paving is ideally suited to this type of design.

Repeatable random paving designs utilise multiple flag sizes placed in a motif which is repeated to create laying pattern.
