1. Concrete is sturdy
If your garden sees its fair share of the elements, you’ll want a material which won’t crack under pressure. Unlike wood, porcelain and clay, concrete doesn’t rot or weaken in wet weather and it also withstands pressure more easily.
Other construction materials may only be purchased in specific dimensions, whereas concrete can be made suitable for all designs. Different colours and textures are available, as well as pre-set, standardised shapes.
Not keen on a modern, minimalist look? Not to worry. Concrete patios can be made to imitate a variety of other materials, such as brick, slate or tile - at a fraction of the price given the relatively easier installation.
