Patio Kits, Patio Packs or Project Packs - What Do They Mean?

Your new patio area will offer you a space where you can relax and entertain the whole year round. With so many types of slabs to choose from, you can get a little overwhelmed with all the options and variations. The laying pattern is one of the things you would ordinarily need to sit and work out, which would be quite a tricky job. But that's where patio kits come in - they are packs of paving slabs that have been pre-picked and packed in a well-balanced mix of sizes to provide a decorative pattern without you having to work it out.

What Is A Patio Kit? Is It The Same As a Patio Pack?

A patio kit is really simple. It’s a ready-to-assemble patio, in kit form. The patio paving in the pack comes made to measure and they are cut to size too. All you need to do is put it together. Our patio paving packs are hugely popular with DIYers and creative homeowners that want to design a stunning patio area that is as unique as they are.

Sometimes these are referred to as Patio Packs or Project Packs. These are the same thing and simply refer to the pre-picked makeup of slabs that make your new patio that bit easier to install.

What Do You Need To Know About Patio Kits?

Our paving kits create a unique and stunning arrangement of patios and walkways. With our natural stone paving slabs in different sizes, you can be sure that no two patio areas will ever look the same. There is a wide selection of colours, patterns, materials and sizes of patio packs available to ensure that you can create the perfect paved area in your garden.

Perhaps the best thing about our patio paving sets is that they are completely versatile. You can lay our patio slab packs as an individual feature and focal point in the garden. Alternatively, our patio paving packs can be used as part of a larger, original design with the splash of something special.

Paving kits are incredibly durable. Unlike a wooden decked area (see our decking vs paving guide), once installed your paving slabs of different sizes will need very little maintenance at all. Each of our patio packs vary in size and coverage to suit each individual space. Make sure you check the product description of the patio paving set you like to ensure you order the right amount.
