Our porcelain tiles are great for the back garden, but that doesn't mean that you can’t dream a little bigger for them. We’re great admirers of beautiful landscapes, and we’re thrilled by the prospect of our porcelain tiles being used by a landscape architect.
Landscape architecture is the art of designing outdoor spaces for public consumption. This includes parks, playgrounds, urban spaces, forecourts, and all kinds of other spaces. And while we don’t want to toot our own horn, we think that our porcelain paving would be pretty perfect for any of these environments!
A paved area can lend depth and appeal to almost any area. Imagine a verdant green park with a porcelain-paved path running through it, or a bustling, metropolitan forecourt in front of a grand, towering hotel.
We are more than happy to work alongside landscape architects to make these creations a reality. If you work in the landscaping business, get in touch today to discuss your requirements – call 029 2037 1584 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a chat with one of our friendly porcelain experts. We can’t wait to see the amazing designs you’ve come up with!

In an ideal world, every garden would look just as good as the home it's attached to. There are several reasons why this can't be the case, but the big one - the real kicker - is the weather. Interior design doesn't have to cope with the nasty conditions that exterior design does, and where a lounge or a bedroom can concentrate on looking pretty, a garden needs to be geared toward durability and weatherproofing.
The good news is that, in spite of the complications your outdoor space has to overcome, it can still look every bit as lovely as the rooms on the other side of the back door. Our porcelain paving is a superior breed of outdoor flooring; its beauty surpasses that of most indoor flooring products, and it's moisture-resistant enough to deal with everything the elements have to offer.

Sandstone paving is a fabulous outdoor flooring option, to be sure. It creates an indescribable atmosphere in the garden, and that unvarnished, authentic look lends itself to all kinds of different outdoor designs. Sandstone paving slabs give your family a smooth, stylish surface to enjoy, and no matter what you do in your outdoor space - dining, sunbathing, gardening - the sandstone tiles will work wonderfully well for you.
But sandstone's conspicuous charms do come with a downside. Since sandstone is a natural stone product, your slabs will have a very high porosity. Porous paving might not sound like a catastrophe waiting to happen, but remember, a high porosity makes it easy for moisture to seep into the stone and ruin that flawless natural look. This can be prevented with regular sealing, but be warned: some sealants can cause stone to become weathered and worn.
Besides, sealing your sandstone is just another tedious job to do, and it's one that you don't necessarily need to bother with. Porcelain paving - particularly our Sandstone range - can be just as organically beautiful as sandstone, and porcelain's relatively low porosity means that moisture damage shouldn't be a problem. The paving slabs will stay pretty for years, and you won't have to lift a finger!

Our OUT 2.0 porcelain paving slabs may be beautiful on the outside, but they’re tough as nails underneath. At 2cm thick, these slabs are sturdy enough to bear heavy loads and a great deal of stress, so your outdoor porcelain will stay looking superb for years to come.
If you’re concerned that the perfect porcelain veneer won’t last long in your busy garden, think again. The occasional wash is all that the OUT 2.0 porcelain tiles require; we believe that gardens should be enjoyed, not maintained, and our outdoor porcelain is as low-maintenance as outdoor flooring comes.
Most homeowners don’t think of their garden as a room of their house. Sure, it’s a living space that serves a particular purpose, but it’s not a room in the same sense as the lounge or the dining room – it’s just a patch of land out the back that would be a great place to sunbathe if Britain ever saw any sunshine.
But that’s not the kind of attitude we care to embrace. The garden is another room, and just because it doesn’t have a roof doesn’t mean that you can’t spruce it up a little. You’ve kitted out your kitchen with gleaming worktops; you’ve spent hundreds of pounds on making your bedroom and bathroom look beautiful; why let your garden go to waste?
One of the best things about our porcelain paving is the fact that it can be used both indoors and out. Our In.Out Porcelain Tiles are specifically designed to be laid in both the home and the garden, and this versatility allows you to have a floor in your garden that looks exactly the same as the floor inside. Pretty porcelain tiles are perfect if you want to make your garden feel like part of the house; simply lay the pavers in the room that opens out onto your back garden, as well as in the garden itself. This will make your outdoor space look like a continuation of your indoor space, and a rather stylish continuation at that!
We believe in making the most of every inch of your home, and that most certainly includes the back garden. If you’ve made an outcast out of your outdoor space, now is the time to make amends and reconnect with your garden using our beautiful porcelain tiles!
