Fall in love with your urban space again; innovate and enjoy the benefits of porcelain slabs, stone and gravel mulches and bringing the outdoors in to your home.

Ecolife defines urban gardening as “The process of growing plants of all types and varieties in an urban environment.” The design is up to you.

Urban gardening can be container based, ideal for yards and modest spaces or across a wider swathe of land which can feature patios, paths, play areas, entertaining and dining spaces. The flexibility to create vertical designs, use roof spaces, and to introduce containers from expensive terracotta pots to a window-box to buckets and rinsed out food tins means that anyone on any size budget can achieve an exceptional design within their exterior space.

We adore porcelain paving in urban gardens

Porcelain slabs are perfect for many contemporary design schemes and are wonderfully affordable. Porcelain is a lighter solution than stone and gravel, so it lends itself to roof and balcony installations.

As your local leading porcelain slabs and gravel suppliers we understand that you may have a space as small as a metre squared, a few window boxes and a path to the door or a balcony that is your own private Kew Gardens. Porcelain and gravel compliment and contrast well with each other and offer an exceptional textural appeal alongside outstanding functionality. Gravel delivers excellent drainage whilst porcelain paving is non-porous so even the dampest spot can be landscaped with confidence.

Porcelain paving is robust and maintains performance longer than timber and stone alternatives.Porcelain slabs are comprised of clay, feldspar, quartz and minerals, are fired at high temperatures and expertly crafted in a range of colours and polished, textured and wood effect finishes.

There is a porcelain solution for everyone. Porcelain slabs can be bought singly and are frost, slip, fade, stain and watermark resistant and demand minimal or no maintenance. Your urban garden needn’t take up your valuable time. It will look astonishing in all weathers.

Two favourites:

Multicolour polished porcelain paving:

  • 600mm x 600mm Brera porcelain in rich brown, red earthy tones.
  • 20mm thickness; crisp cut.
  • No sealing required.
  • Zero maintenance.
  • Create continuity by using indoors and outside.

Anthracite porcelain:

  • Enchanting textured finish; high quality mottled black-grey appearance.
  • 600mm X 600mm slabs. (800mm X 800mm/ 800mm X 400mm options to order.)
  • Interior-exterior continuity capabilities.
  • Easy to install.
  • Minimal maintenance.

Get creative…we’re here to help!

Consider the interplay, even in a confined space, between a vanilla wood effect porcelain and a contrasting rich green stone and gravel product like Green Basalt; or Ice Blue Gravel set against Mustang Black porcelain slabs. Pink gravel set in pots as a mulch over an anthracite porcelain paving product is truly appealing and Moonstone Gravel’s black, white, grey and brown would create the wow factor when used with the stone blend golden porcelain slabs.
