Decorative landscaping refers to elements in a garden or outdoor space like pathways, walkways, and driveways. A key component to these is aggregates, such as gravel, that are used to create decorative landscaping elements.
Decorative landscaping is vital in the planning of outdoor spaces and gardens as they create order and ensure all appropriate areas are accessible. They also act as a guide for how you would like users to navigate the space and can be used to great effect in order to segment certain areas and seamlessly link the outdoors with the indoors.
The advantages of decorative landscaping
Decorative landscaping goes a long way to help you create accessible, usable outdoor spaces. Incorporating these elements into your project design is essential to creating inviting spaces that are navigable and user-friendly, as well as inviting and aesthetically pleasing.
This can be achieved with walkways, 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 and NatraTex
Comprised of a synthetically fully bound aggregate, NatraTex can be used 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, and playgrounds.
Decorative landscaping is often used to transform outdoor areas, creating attractive outdoor spaces that combine several different landscaping elements. Walkways, paths and patios can be effectively used to divide up areas and encourage natural ‘flow’ through an area.
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, dynamic environment that is inviting and safe for users.
