Landscaping with pavers can add value to your property and allow you to enjoy your home’s outdoor living spaces in new ways. With a variety of customizable options and applications, your patios, walkways, or driveways will be handled with professionalism and care.
Pavers are incredibly flexible and can be used in a variety of hardscapes. Most commonly, they can be seen in patios, walkways, and driveways.
If any of the options above are something you could envision in your outdoor space, pavers are the perfect choice to add a unique look. No more tripping over old, cracked concrete. Pavers are weather-resistant, low-maintenance, and fully customizable.
Pavers are a fantastic material to use because of their variety and strength. Concrete pavers, also known as cement pavers, come in many styles with different shapes, patterns, and colors. You can make a custom, attractive design that complements your home and landscape. Other options also include clay brick pavers or natural cobblestone.
In addition, pavers are strong, able to withstand heavy pressure for a lifetime of integrity. Individual pavers are easy to move and replace, without a noticeable trace. With proper installation and maintenance, a paver driveway can last from 25-50 years, outperforming the poured concrete driveway. And with no waiting period for curing, your paver driveway is ready to use upon installation and provides better traction when wet.
A few considerations should be addressed before committing to pavers. Installing a paver patio, walkway, or driveway requires proper base preparation with a layer of gravel and sand. The space between individual pavers leaves it open to growing weeds. Also, pavers can move or shift from frost heave, growing roots, or settling. Luckily, they can be easily replaced, but they do require storage of extra pavers for replacement. Knowing these issues in advance and with expert installation and maintenance, a paver patio, walkway, or driveway is a great, easy-care choice.
In addition to being a sturdy building material, pavers enable a broad scope of patio, walkway, or driveway design. Concrete pavers can be ordered in many styles to appear as rustic slabs, natural cobblestones, modern slate, or anything else you could imagine. Use different brick shapes, borders, and textures to let your creativity reach new heights. Think outside the box by incorporating curves, flaring to new widths, and adding intricate patterns to include character in your landscape. You can even match the patterns in your patio, walkway, or driveway for a cohesive theme and feel. Don’t forget to incorporate stepping stones, lights, or an irrigation system for increased functionality.
With creative design, it’s important to use professional installation and maintenance to avoid common paver pitfalls. Every few years, your pavers will need a coat of sealer which prevents fading and weathering. Sealer also ensures a compact fit, keeping sand in and dirt, weeds, and ants out. Keep in mind that darker pavers get hotter quickly, which is an important consideration for pool decks. Upon installation, pavers should be established on a solid base, with an extra thick layer for driveways. Also, they should pitch to the side a bit for proper water drainage, while still feeling level. An expert opinion can help you plan which pavers work best for your area.
Utilize pavers for a patio, walkway, or driveway to create an impactful design statement at your home. We are with you every step of the way to plan the perfect outdoor space that transforms your property and allows you to enjoy the yard you’ve always wanted.
