Natural brick used in gardens and patios won’t fade, but there are other disadvantages. Like concrete, brick has no natural give. It’s prone to cracking, and oils and other stains can ruin the look. Because of the way bricks are installed, removing one because of a crack or chip is difficult and can mar look of the entire area.
The look of slate can’t be beat when you’re dealing with any number of projects, in all different settings, whether rustic, or modern, there is a cut or color of slate to be found that will make the project look great. The subtle changes in the color throughout the stone, and the different look you can get from a different angle looking at the same piece make the possibilities endless when you use slate in your project.
Concrete garden paving slabs are one of the least expensive options, but they do tend to crack over time. Cracking and concrete’s natural tendency to stain are two of the biggest disadvantages of using concrete. If one slab needs to be replaced, it’s also very difficult to do so without leaving marks and scars around the area.
Flagstone is a popular choice and can give your pathway or edging a very natural look. Flagstones are thin, flat stones that are irregularly shaped. They’re ideal for an earthy, natural look in your garden. The biggest drawbacks of using flagstones as garden paving slabs are that they’re prone to chipping and staining, and usually much more expensive than man-made materials.
