2018 : Our 3 favourite landscaping trends of the season

May 12, 2018

As spring approaches, it is time to gather your ideas for your landscaping project. The creation process can at times seem difficult due to the array of possibilities. Are you in search of inspiration and want to know the newest trends in outdoor landscaping? Look no further than our top three trends for the 2018 season to help you design your perfect outdoors.


Big sizes are definitely popular this year. It is now possible to find pavers and slabs of 32 x 32 inches (our Proma Quadra paver and slab) and 32 x 48 inches (our Proma 3XL paver and slab). We also see in this trend smoother textures and cleaner lines.

In 2018, we love bright colors. Rinox’s new silver white color will create a fresh and modern ambiance to your outdoors. For those who want to cut the tone on tone effect, add border inserts or contrasting slabs, or maybe even some wooden accents. With colorful accessories the final look of your project will be spectacular!

You will find our silver white color in both Rinox’s masonry and  landscape collections.

The new silver white color is available in the following Rinox landscaping products : Proma, Proma XL, Proma Quadra, Proma 3XL, and the Ora wall.
*Due to dark tire tracks, the silver white color is not available for driveway pavers and is only available for our backyard slab products.

Polished textures highlight the concrete components. This texture is reminiscent of Terrazzo, a popular floor covering that was heavily installed in the 1980s. We are seeing this trend everywhere these days as it makes a comeback in 2018.

Use the polished texture to create a BBQ island that stands out, or for the bold, opt for a complete project in the polished finish!

Rinox offers many products with the possibility of a polished finish (in both the pavers and slabs collection) such as the Proma XLProma QuadraProma 3XL, Aspen and the Ora retaining wall.
