Create the perfect patio this summer with Kilsaran Paving

With summer here, we'd like to share some tips and ideas on how to make the most of your outdoor space. 

Check out our simple tips from Kilsaran Paving that will help you create the perfect patio.

  • Keep the design simple and don’t over complicate it
  • Observe the sun at various times of the day to determine the best location of your patio
  • Try to use one colour and material for the main space, and then use contrasting colours and materials to create patters and borders.
  • Use raised beds and walling to add height to a flat area and allow for creative planting
  • Remember that the paving materials you choose can help to brighten a dark site

Patio areas don’t have to be attached to the house. Why not create an independent ‘floating island’ within your site. Take some inspiration from the Kilsaran show home gardens in Dunboyne, Co.meath.
