Designed and laid in the right way, exposed aggregate concrete paving can make a small front yard look larger, lighter and welcoming, creating a sense of space.
Here are some creative ideas for smaller yards and entrances that we have installed, using a combination of exposed aggregate concrete and paving titles to create stylish and attractive designs, transforming smaller areas of your home into welcoming pathways and entrances.
Exposed aggregate in clean, minimalist lines
For this smaller semi-detached home, we opted for a combined exposed aggregate pathway and driveway with clean, minimalist lines, framing the entrance with plants.
Curved pathways add interest to the landscaping
Curves work well in small front yards. This striking exposed aggregate concrete pathway curved around the home and was accentuated with plants and a large pot.
Clever landscaping creating both colour and tranquillity in a small space
This small front yard combines a water feature with a lighter exposed aggregate concrete for the pathway. The narrow area came to life with the tranquil sounds of water movement and a small, colourful garden.
Earth stone and water came together to create a natural mini sanctuary.
Making an entrance three dimensional
For this small entrance, we used exposed aggregate concrete stepping stones with a mixture of small pebbles between the concrete paving for contrast.
A combination of tiles and exposed aggregate
This innovative design for the entrance to this home combines exposed aggregate concrete sections, framed with tiles and separated with small plants – bringing a distinctive style to a small front yard.
Cut-out feature in concrete paving entrance
We added a cut out feature to this exposed aggregate concrete entrance that we filled with small contrasting stones.
Being on the darker side of the house, we used a lighter aggregate with dark pebbles to create a sense of space.
