Georgina Read, director at Paving Superstore said: “If you’ve been inspired by the European gardens mentioned in our research, why not recreate your favourite European gardens in your own home! Clever choices on which flowers, plants, and topiary to include, as well as mimicking layouts and landscaping from your favourite garden, are a great place to start.

“For Parisian look, keep a perfectly maintained lawn lined with colourful flowers, or opt for native flora, such as iris flowers or lilies, for a more muted palette. Choosing the right garden paving can also the perfect way to transform your outdoor space – mainly used to guide guests around the gardens to specific focal points or spots of interest, paving can also be used as another design feature in your own garden.”
