The Versatility of Pavers
When it comes to outdoor hardscapes, pavers are an extremely versatile option that can be used for just about any project. Pavers are durable, weather-resistant, cost-effective, and virtually maintenance-free. In addition, pavers come in a wide variety of colors and shapes, and can be installed to create unique, eye-catching patterns. Intrigued? Check out these popular paver projects and see if one (or more) is right for your outdoor space. Patios One of the most common uses of pavers is to build patios. Paver patios are great for small and large spaces alike. They are easier to maintain than wood decks and are more durable than cement slabs. In addition to covering the ground of a patio, pavers can also be used to build pillars, sitting walls, and an outdoor kitchen or bar. Patios made of pavers are also a smart financial choice, as they have a high return on investment. Walkways Pavers are also a top choice for homeowners who want to add walkways to their yard. Paver walkways create an attractive and clear path to lead visitors from one area of the yard to another. Since pavers are naturally slip-resistant they are an ideal choice for a walkway. Keep in mind when installing a walkway that the pavers should be proportionate to the width of the path. For example, if you have a five-foot-wide walkway, the pavers should be about five inches wide.
Firepits Firepits have been growing in popularity over the past several years and are a great way to use pavers in your yard. Firepits made of pavers are safe and beautiful and can be built-in to a patio or installed in an area of their own. Firepits can be used year-round and increase your home’s value as well. Driveways You can also give your home a distinct look by installing a driveway made of pavers. By matching the colors of your driveway pavers to your house or your landscaping, you can tie your entire outdoor space together, giving your house extra curb appeal. As opposed to driveways made of concrete or asphalt, which require patchwork repairs that often look mismatched, repairs needed for driveways made of pavers are easy to perform and match the existing driveway perfectly. Pavers are a great choice for your next outdoor project, no matter what it is! To learn more about Dreamscape Designer’s options in pavers and our installation process, contact us at (757) 412-1265
