Ideas For Using Porcelain Cladding For Garden Walls

05/03/2024 - Case Studies and Inspiration

Have you ever considered using porcelain cladding for garden walls? Several of our customers have had great success with the material and we’d love it if their ideas could inspire you to do something similar.

What Is Porcelain Cladding?

Porcelain cladding is simply a lighter more slimline version of the porcelain pavers you would use on a patio. The tiles are a mere 5mm thick which means that they are more suitable for vertical use.

Why Use Porcelain Cladding?

It’s a quick, easy and very stylish way to upgrade the look and feel of a garden wall. When doing a garden makeover, walls can be built with basic materials and then transformed by applying porcelain cladding. 

The cladding itself is weather proof, durable, stain resistant and washable, meaning that it is an incredibly versatile design feature. In addition, you can use porcelain cladding for garden walls and for interior walls giving you the opportunity to create a cohesive look for your indoor-outdoor living area.

Is Porcelain Cladding Available In Different Colours?

At Arbour Landscape Solutions we have 17 different colour ways in our standard range of XTech porcelain cladding. We also offer a bespoke sourcing service where we do the legwork to find the exact colour and pattern that you need for your garden design.

Without further ado, let's take a look at some ideas for using porcelain cladding for garden walls.
