Bring the Country to You

‘Country living’ is a recurring theme sought after by new home buyers, self-builders and those making home improvements. And it’s no surprise that the warmth and charm associated with ‘country-chic’ is so commonly aspired to – this theme offers timeless style and character. Many people that live in urban areas believe this style is unattainable for properties in a town setting, but that is not the case. With the landscape design possibilities available nowadays, you don’t even have to live in the country to get a sense of country living!

For smaller spaces, a cottage garden can provide a cosy sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding town and the stresses of everyday life. The addition of bench seating with floral cushions and space-saving shelves for potted plants can be used to add personality and function.

For larger spaces, a courtyard garden offers a multi-purpose area for secluded relaxation, hosting parties and provides a safe space for children to roam. Features such as shabby-chic style table and chairs for alfresco dining, wooden archways and the creation of paths are ideal for creating the courtyard look.

Rustic, warm toned paving adds a sense of softness and traditional styling to a home, check out Tobermore’s range of red toned paving and buff & golden coloured paving and bricks.

Tobermore offer some beautiful paving products such as Tegula, Retro and Historic Flags that evoke rustic style. These products are ideal for creating a traditional outdoor space – so Tobermore can help bring the country to you, no matter where your home is located!
