When it comes to creating a low maintenance garden, it doesn’t get much easier than porcelain paving. With many structural advantages and an easy cleaning regime to go hand in hand, it’s clear to see why our porcelain paving slabs are such a popular choice.
There’s no avoiding the fact that grass requires a lot of maintenance and attention to keep it looking green and healthy year-round. From mowing and watering to controlling weeds and fertilising, maintaining a lawn can be an endless and demanding job.
On the other hand, natural stone paving for gardens can also prove a tedious task when it comes to maintenance.
Most natural stones, including limestone and sandstone, will fade, weather, and stain unless carefully sealed every 3-5 years. Natural stone is also porous, which means that it can absorb water and lead to cracking in the long term.
Porcelain paving is the perfect solution for gardens because it is manufactured to be highly durable and resistant to many of the structural problems that often occur with natural stone.
Our collection of porcelain paving slabs are all manufactured with an R11 anti-slip to combat slips, trips, and falls during the winter months. They are also extremely hard-wearing to withstand cracks, dents, chips, and scratches.
What’s more, porcelain paving tiles are stain-resistant and don’t require sealing. Even the most stubborn substances, including grease and red wine, will not penetrate through the non-porous surface.
However, we still recommend cleaning up any marks or spills at the earliest convenience to avoid long-lasting stains occurring.
Porcelain paving won’t typically get as dirty as a natural stone patio either. Therefore regular pressure washing won’t be necessary to maintain the look of your tiles. Simply fill a bucket with warm water and add a gentle detergent and wipe down a few times a year.
Naturally, over time your porcelain patio will accumulate debris such as sticks and leaves as well as dirt and dust. A soft-bristle sweeping brush is enough for the job and will ensure your porcelain paving tiles don’t scratch during the process.
