The term “decorative landscaping” refers to elements in a garden or outdoor space like pathways, walkways and driveways. A key component to these features is aggregates, such as gravel, used to create decorative landscaping elements.
In the planning of outdoor spaces and gardens, decorative landscaping creates order and it ensures all appropriate areas are accessible. It also acts as a guide for how you would like users to navigate through the space and it can be used to great effect in order to segment certain areas and seamlessly link the outdoor space with the indoors.
What Are The Advantages Of Decorative Landscaping?
Decorative landscaping goes a long way in helping you to create accessible and usable outdoor spaces. Incorporating these elements into your project design is essential to creating outdoor spaces, which are navigable and user-friendly, as well as inviting and aesthetically pleasing.
This can be achieved with footpaths, driveways, playground areas, MUGA surfacing and more. A key consideration when choosing decorative landscaping elements is ensuring the materials used to create these features is low maintenance and durable. This is particularly true when choosing colourful and vibrant decorative landscaping elements, which need to be resilient and durable while retaining the desired aesthetic.
Decorative Landscaping From NatraTex
Decorative landscaping is often used to transform outdoor areas, creating attractive outdoor spaces that combine several different landscaping elements. Paving such as walkways, paths and patios can be effectively used to divide up areas and encourage natural ‘flow’ through an area.
Composed of a synthetically fully bound aggregate, NatraTex can be used in domestic and commercial outdoor spaces as a key design element in decorative landscaping. Available in a range of warm tones, it is used to great effect as surfacing for walkways, driveways, playgrounds and more.
NatraTex is available in a wide range of earthy, natural tones that are sympathetic to the surrounding landscape. However, they can also be used in more vibrant hues for an eye-catching finish. This is particularly effective in school playgrounds or community centres, where decorative landscaping can be used to create a welcoming and dynamic environment, which feels inviting and safe for users.
