Looking for an addition to your landscape that can combine both beauty and function? Pavers are versatile materials that allow for a variety of options when installing an outdoor feature such as a walkway, driveway, or patio. They are available in a wide array of styles and colors, so you can customize your perfect look to coordinate with your home. Today we’re sharing some ideas to help complete your outdoor space using pavers.
Pavers are an excellent alternative to poured concrete for use in driveways. Most driveways occupy a large chunk of street-side real estate, so the increase in aesthetic value stands to greatly boost the curb appeal of your home.
It is also a great value for the area it covers, providing a high degree of durability and resilience for the cost. The high strength of the product can hold more pounds per square inch than concrete or asphalt, making it perfect for long-term durability. Unlike concrete, it won't crack during repeated cycles of freezing and thawing and it weathers well over time.
By using pavers, it is easy to turn your yard into a complete outdoor living area with the addition of a patio. Installing a stylish paver patio makes it easy to arrange outdoor furniture and other fixtures, and it encourages your family and guests to spend time outside. Patios offer a great way to take full advantage of your outdoor space from spring through fall.
Like patios, pool decks can increase the usability of your outdoor areas, and it also serves to secure the ground around your pool or other water feature, preventing seepage, erosion, and soil instability that could negatively affect the rest of your landscape. Installing non-slip paving stones in these spaces also keeps you and your family safer by decreasing the risk of slipping or tripping when the surface gets wet.
Whether you are looking for a simple and modern surface to lead straight to your front door, or you are trying to create a whimsical pathway through a lush garden, paving stones can build your solution.
Thinking outside the box when it comes to choosing the materials for your walkway can make a strong visual statement and lend your path a lot more character without much extra effort. An occasional accent stone in a contrasting color to the rest of the surface adds a bit of flair. Use larger pieces with filler space in between for a more casual, meandering feel.
Pavers are an easy way to mark the borders between your flowerbeds from the rest of the lawn while adding a bit of charm. Choose colors and styles of pavers that complement your landscape to really make them stand out and add a sense of composition to your lawn. They can also serve as a way to keep the rich soil for your flowers where you need it to be. However, if you are looking to redesign your landscape, they are easy to remove and reposition, so you can always end up with the look you want.
