PGH Bricks & Pavers
Gardens play a crucial role welcoming us home and inviting us to spend time in our precious private spaces. This garden explores the pleasure of having a beautiful, green, living, sensory space for recreation but also highlights the careful blending of traditional, timeless materials such as classic brick and Australian Bluestone to create a garden that ages gracefully - just getting better over time.
Highlights of foliage colour have been chosen to tone in with the both the bricks and the bluestone in the hardscape. The sunken garden paved element creates invitation encouraging you to stop and rest; the elegance of slimline brick paving chosen speciﬁcally for warmth, texture and to create the illusion of increased space. The paving ‘folds’ up the wall to further the sense of immersion and integration. The slimline bricks are used in the vertical plane in the garden retaining walls also for a cohesive approach, just as the Bluestone paving is used as stepping stones, steps and random paving throughout the design.
