Striving for Paving Perfection
Paving in minimalist gardens needs to be simple and straightforward, yet highly engineered. The materials used need to be immaculate in finish — limestone or pale sandstone are favorites used by designers, though polished concrete also fits the bill.
Though any minimalist garden should be as maintenance free as possible, any hardscaping must be kept pristine to acheive the look.
Maintenance tip: Pressure washing should help keep more absorbent stone, such as limestone and sandstone, free from algae and dirt stains.
