Patios are a great addition to any garden and offer function and aesthetic value, no matter the size of your space in Pulborough, Billingshurst, Horsham, Worthing, Burgess Hill, Brighton or Hove. As experienced patio designers, we are specialists in porcelain and natural stones, and create patios in a range of materials and styles to suit your tastes and requirements. No matter your needs, we find the ideal solution.

When designing new patios, Dominic and the team consider different factors to meet your individual needs. All our landscaping services include a consultation and ongoing communication to make sure you’re completely happy throughout the project.

To create effective patios,
we take into account:

Purpose & Size

Although it may seem obvious, it’s important to think about how you plan to use your patio so the end result meets your needs. We construct patios of all shapes and sizes so, whether you require a cosy space for a couple of people or a large outdoor entertainment area, Dominic Richards Landscaping & Design Ltd finds the ideal solution.

To make sure patios are big enough, we also consider outdoor furniture requirements. Paved spaces need to be the right size to accommodate the table and chairs you want, or for other furniture such as outdoor sofas and chimineas.


The most popular position for patios in Billingshurst, Pulborough, Horsham, Worthing, Burgess Hill, Brighton, Hove and Sussex is next to the house. If you want to transport food and drink between your house and patio, this is often the most convenient placement because it offers easy access to indoor facilities.

However, depending on how you plan to use the space, this may not be the most suitable option. Our patio designers work with you to determine the ideal position of patios. If you require a private space for relaxing, a small patio away from the house may be a better option.

Similarly, other areas of your garden may get more sun than the space directly next to your house. If you wish to spend long afternoons or evenings in the garden, it is favourable to build patios where they will enjoy the most sunlight.

Materials, Shape & Form

To provide perfect hard landscaping solutions, we offer a range of materials in different colours and finishes to suit your tastes. Our patio designers and landscapers supply high-quality Cheshire Stone products, including porcelain paving, to build patios in any number of shapes and styles.

Rest assured, Dominic and the team make sure your patio complements the overall design of your garden in Sussex. From soft, flowing curves to straight edges softened by carefully selected plants, we have the ideal solution for every space.

Additional Features

Having been working as professional patio designers and landscapers for many years, we know how to make the most of every garden. As part of patio designs, we can include a range of features which optimise your outdoor space. This includes pergolas, external lighting and garden walls.

For complete peace of mind, all our patios also come with a 1-year guarantee.

Dom and his team were simply fantastic. We started off with Phase 1 being faced with a patch of mud in our new build at Bolnore Village and he prepared and laid a Brazilian Black Slate patio with a temporary grass lawn. Then Phase 2 was to complete our vision of raised beds with artificial lawn and a water feature with lights and a remote control. The final work was exactly how I imagined BRILLIANT. Can’t recommend Dom enough. Thank You.

Our garden was a complete tip and Dominic designed and landscaped it to something which could feature in a magazine, it gorgeous and fitted our brief exactly. The team were professional, very tidy and always smiling which was lovely. The quality of the work was outstanding. Highly recommend.

Redesign Of garden
Customer In Pulborough

The project involved taking a sloping garden and creating something that was aesthetically pleasing but practical. We had some ideas, which Dom combined with his creative flair to create our ideal garden space using a beach theme. The computer visual provided was a useful starting point. The work involved a great deal of ground preparation and we are now left with a gorgeous space with an attractive patio/decking area bordered by stones, lollipop trees, artificial lawn, combined with a water feature and sensational lighting. I would recommend Dom and his team without hesitation: Fantastic!

Customer in Brighton

Dominic originally came to look at our garden and advised us of the best way to get what we wanted. We have a small unusual shaped garden and Dominic was clear in telling us that there would be wastage with the artificial grass. Dominic was prompt in giving us a price, and arranged a start date that was suitable and quick for us. Darren and the team of employees that arrived were very friendly, efficient and precise. They were hardworking, quick to come up with solutions if problems occurred and kept us informed each step of the way. We love our new outdoor space and recommend highly!

Customer in Crawley

From the first meeting Dominic was helpful, friendly and gave me good advice. His team were all really lovely and polite and worked hard to make sure the garden I envisaged became a reality. The work came in under the estimate and although Dominic could have charged me as quoted, he did not. That is a real credit to his honesty and integrity. I had a vast amount of patio laid and it could easily have been very bland but the careful choices of grout, fencing, mixed size slabs, pebbles, brickwork and sensitive planting lifts it to a fresh and contemporary outdoor space. It is perfect for us!

Customer in Hassocks

Dominic and the guys demolished the old timber decking, provided temporary access, obtained, a structural design for the new decking and proceeded with the build to completion. All materials were delivered on time and various trades were employed and managed without issue. We are delighted with the end product and love the aesthetics of the revised/enhanced deck.
