Mosaic in the garden - unlimited possibilities of paving stones

Artistic compositions made from bits of stone, glass and ceramics, laid like a puzzles, have compelled admiration for centuries. The perfectly symmetrical Moroccan mosaics, the glimmering Portuguese azulejo, monumental Arabic ornaments - although complicated and elaborate at times, are an inspiration for artists all around the world. The art of putting mosaics together is also used by manufacturers, among others, of paving stone.

Inclusion of the mosaics in the space around the house will surely turn out to be a good decision - both in the aesthetical and practical sense. The mosaics motif is not only a method of decoration of furniture in the garden, but also to compose the garden pavement. By using the richness of shapes, textures and colors of the paving stone, we can create any shape: floral, geometrical, abstract - such that can spur our imagination, is durable and functional.

Debris full of magic

The mosaic is a domain of handicraft, thus anyone can try to do it on their own. Using grout and ceramic tile glue, as well as multi-colored pieces of tiles and glass, we can decorate a table top, window niche, a well, stone flowerpots or garden benches. In the creation of mosaics patience is almost as important as a good idea. It is worth devoting more time to finding unique pieces of tiles with similar thickness, so that later on we can enjoy an ideally smooth and magically colorful surface.

Ideal mosaic

Irregular cracks, different coloring and thickness - we should remember that tile and glass debris do not guarantee precision and symmetry identical to that of Morocco's fountains. So if we put more emphasis on regularity of shapes and textures rather than eclecticism, we should create the garden mosaic using paving stone. It is a durable and functional material, which works well in arrangements of i.a. very vast spaces. When planning the mosaic in the garden and outside the house, it is worth to take into account such architectural elements as the color of the roof and the facade, as well as shape of the fencing. “If there are already pronounced details and ornaments in the surroundings of the house, it is worth to select delicate and bright coloring to create the mosaic - beiges, grays and shades of graphite will work well. In the opposite case, where the finish of the house is toned down, we can use a composition of shades of red and brown in the mosaic. We will obtain extremely stylish and interesting effects with the use of stone of antiqued or washed texture,” recommends Wojciech Średniawa, chief designer of Polbruk brand.

Garden kaleidoscope

Creating a paving stone mosaic might bear a resemblance to building blocks. Each element of a collection has the same thickness and the edges of individual stones show a perfect harmony. Various types of stones - square, rectangular, trapezoidal, irregular - allow precise imaging of any motif. In creating colorful driveways, paths or terraces, stones with rounded edges will prove best, such as Polbruk Nostalite Prima – a new version of the old paving stone that has been used by Poles for many years. However, we can really give vent to our fantasy by designing multicolored, extensive surfaces, abundant with circles and arcs around our house. Trapezoidal stones can be used for that purpose (e.g. Avanti and Carmino). On the other hand, the irregularity of a natural mosaic can be reflected by using Polbruk Petra, a characteristic stone referred to as the “heart” of an Arabic kingdom.
