Choosing the right plants for growing around patios
Adding a vibrant element to your patio area through plants, flowers, shrubs and grasses is a great idea. Not only do plants add colour and texture; they make the space feel alive. But how do you decide what to grow? First, you’ll need to choose patio plants that suit the conditions in your garden. Some require full sun while others tolerate shade. But you’ll also want to select plants that fit with your design goals. Whether you’re planning a traditional terrace or a contemporary space, here’s how to design a planting scheme for your patio.
I’ve been around paving & patios all my life. Primethorpe Paving as a company has existed since 1999, and I’ve only existed since 1994, so for the majority of my life I’ve been either around or involved with this industry! Since 2015 I’ve worked full time as Primethorpe Paving’s product strategist so have in-depth knowledge of all things paving as well as any complementary products. More recently I joined the content creation team to begin publishing information on how to get the most out of your patios – new & old!
