What are patio slabs?
Patio slabs are used to create outdoor patios and paved areas, as well as edgings and paths. Flags are one of the core building materials in the construction trade that will help you on the journey to your dream garden. They are flat and usually available in rectangle or square shapes. Paving slabs have a wide range of uses from patio paving, paving circles as well as to create pathways and edges around your home and garden.
However, paving slabs are not recommended when you are constructing a driveway. Driveway block paving is designed specifically for this purpose due to its special shape and thickness.
What types of paving slabs do you supply?
Here at LSD, we can meet any of your size, colour, shape and style requirements to create a perfect patio.
In our natural stone collection, for example, we stock exquisite indian stone paving sourced directly from from various regions in India renowned for their high quality stone with beautiful natural veining. With rustic and contemporary colour schemes and riven, smooth or textured profiles, these pavers are a great choice to recreate any mood. Go for that charming cottage garden feel, with riven sandstone, limestone or granite in a range of colours from sagar black to raj green.
If you prefer a more modern and contemporary feel to your outdoor space, then our high quality range of porcelain paving slabs is full of great options.These sleek slabs bring a stunning level of sophistication to any outdoor set-up or entertaining space. Porcelain is also extremely hard-wearing and non-porous which makes them so easy to clean as wiping away water-based stains is a breeze. No need to buy a sealant with this option.
It’s not just your patio that can receive a LSD-inspired spruce up, either. Our popular carpet stones and paving setts, inspired by the cobblestones of old European streets, are perfect for pathways, edgings and any garden feature. Lay a rustic walkway around beautiful flower beds or a practical path to protect your lawn as people walk to the shed.
Which paving slab sizes are available?
Within our paving collection, we offer a huge selection of paving slab sizes that can each dramatically change the look of your patio depending on shape or size.
Our square pavers are a great option for that uniform look to your paved area. This is a neat aesthetic that would look great in contemporary spaces that value uniformity over more rustic variation.
As for our rectangular pavers, these are great for making your garden look bigger with an illusion of more space. It’s a subtle effect but the elongated rectangular shape stretches out a patio, so you really get value for money with these. You can coordinate your driveway accordingly with our StoneMaster block paving range, to ensure uniform colour and texture from front to back.
To create a traditional look you’ll want to use both rectangular and square pavers on your patio – which is super easy with LSD’s handy patio packs. These collections include many different dimensions, combining effortlessly for a classic, lived in finish.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to make a moody and stylish patio statement, our black paving collection brings a bold finish to your outdoor space and will create a beautiful contrast with surrounding plants and foliage. Our distinctive Porcelain Tiles in blue-black, for instance, combines the traits of aged slate with an interesting blue shade to create a dramatic paving tile.
You could even add a splash of warmth with our collection of red and ochre paving. These rich earthy tones coordinate well with wooden benches and tables, whilst bringing a hint of the European for a perfect sun-soaked alfresco area.

Can you lay patio slabs on building sand?
Building sand is not enough to secure paving, wherever you are laying them. Instead, you should use a mixture of sharp sand and cement, so that the flags are secure. In order to ensure your patio lasts, you also need a cement mortar mix to guarantee longevity.
The perfect ratio for a strong mortar bed consists of 4 parts building sand and 1 part cement, which can be easily mixed together in a wheelbarrow or bucket. This ratio should make for the perfect patio once your slabs are laid.

Shapes and sizes
To really get the best from your garden, our range of patio paving comes in loads of different measurements. Since all outdoor spaces are different, it is important to get the right paving shapes to suit the natural flow of your garden.

To keep your garden or patio looking its best for as long as possible, it can be worth thinking about these factors when choosing your garden slabs:
Use/purpose of the space: What is the space you’re creating for? If it’s a heavy-use access path, you might prefer a more resilient material such as limestone or granite as the traffic will lead to quicker wear and tear. It may also be worth considering a product with non-slip qualities. Most of our tiles come with their own slip rating so you can consider safety in the rainy UK.
Location: Where are you laying your garden paving? In some conditions, algae and moss growth can be a problem as well as weeds and varying moisture levels. Minerals in the soil can sometimes permeate natural stone and stain the tiles. Vitrified patio slabs can help reduce organic growth as they are so non-absorbent. For swimming pool areas, consider concrete or natural stone paving and prevent slipping.
Weather: For particularly cold or wet locations, it can be even more important to get the right patio slabs. Non-slip options are certainly advisable in rainy locations. The less water a slab absorbs, the safer it will be in these wet conditions.
