A natural stone pathway in your garden can add an elegant touch.
Imagine a romantic stroll down a cobblestone, flower-lined path into a country garden, or a brick patio with the pleasant aroma of a barbeque wafting over the summer breeze. Remember that the key to success in painting your home lies in the planning and preparation.
Travertine, brick, cobblestone, glass, granite, grass turf – the list is endless. Deciding which choice is right for your yard comes down to personal preference, and the purpose you have in mind. Some materials, such as clay bricks, stand out as a better choice for a specific purpose. Known to withstand heavy weight, bricks are more highly recommended for driveways than, say, glass or cobblestone. Flagstone pavers, on the other hand, are one of the most popular types for homeowners because of their versatility.
Basic flat stones, flagstone pavers come in a variety of colors and work well in pathways, patios, or as stepping stones. Concrete pavers are another popular choice because of their flexibility and durability. There are even antique pavers, for that Victorian garden of long ago. Rubber pavers are another unique product. Strong, durable, and attractive, they are the choice for play areas because of their slip resistance and shock absorption. Additionally, rubber pavers are made out of recycled products and are eco-friendly.
Pavers are designed with different features as well. Some are interlocking to create a smooth appearance, while others are made for edging pools, planters, garden beds, or driveways. Some include special finishes to reduce slippage, while others incorporate soothing colors to add to your visual appeal.
Pavers are a wonderful way to dress up your home’s landscape. Utilizing natural materials, they can be used to create pathways, borders, planter beds, patios, fountains, even an attractive alternative to a paved driveway. Pavers add design and definition, as well as a clean groundcover. Contact one of our certified design and planning contractors today for a free estimate for your project.
