For most new home projects today, the outdoor living area is just as important as the interior design. In fact, it is such an integral part of the design that architects and designers will specify landscaping products right from the outset.

When this Eden Homes house was designed, a semi-formal Italian look was required. The paving, which is a key feature of the landscaping, needed to complement the plaster exterior of the house and the formal parterre, with its clipped box hedging and classical water feature.

The designer specified Akarana pavers and coping stones with a smooth finish, from Jagas Paving's Platinum range. The pavers, which were laid four years ago, have retained their good looks and proven their durability over the seasons.

Robert Sweet of Jagas Paving says the 12mm topping mix and the colour-fast oxides ensure the pavers have the appearance, weathering properties and colour variation of natural stone. But, as Jagas pavers are handmade, they can take on virtually any shape and texture, while being as strong and durable as concrete.
