Selecting The Right Pavers For Your Outdoor Project

Your Professional Landscaping Company Offers Useful Design Guidelines

When you are looking to add an attractive entryway to your property, a paved walkway could be a unique feature in your front yard. If increasing your home’s curb appeal is on your mind, a paved driveway may be just the right solution for you. If you want to demarcate a space for grilling, chilling and entertaining in your backyard, a paver patio will do the job perfectly. 

There are numerous hardscaping ideas that can help in enhancing the look of your property, as well as making it more functional. No matter which part you wish to tackle, the hardscaping material that you lay underfoot, truly sets the tone for your overall project. If you and your family members are splitting hairs over paver selection, read on to know more about the available options and how they perform in and contribute to your outdoor spaces.

Aspects to Consider while Selecting Paver Materials

Whether you are adding a new exterior space, or redesigning an existing one, the paver type, design and colors largely depends on the size and nature of your project.

  • Paver Types: Concrete is the most versatile, affordable and durable paver option for driveways, walkways, as well as patios. Not only is it available in varying styles and colors, but it is simple and easy-to-install, due to its interlocking grid mechanism. If you wish to go for an earthy aesthetic, then you have the option of natural stone pavers. However, this is a slightly more expensive solution and not ideal for high traffic zones. Another paving material that you may want to consider is brick. While bricks are strong and stain-resistant, they may require high maintenance, especially if fitted in areas that are cold, damp or shady.
  • Size: Large-sized paver blocks tend to make a space look diminutive and also reduce your design flexibility. Although they may be ideal for adding hardscaping features to your backyard or patio, when it comes to the driveway or front porch, consider the small paver blocks. These are better for high traffic areas, especially when your vehicles are parked, or pulling in and out of the driveway. 
  • Patterns and Colors: Patterns and colors are critical factors in uplifting your paver projects and helping you achieve your preferred design and aesthetics. 
  • For a natural, rustic look, select multiple paver colors and block sizes. 
  • For a more contemporary look, keep the design simple and opt for colors that accentuate the rest of your home. 
  • To create a sense of space, pick lighter colors. 
  • If you are going for a relaxed feel, use natural grey tones. 

Lend a Professional Touch to Your Driveways, Walkways and Patios 

A well-designed and meticulously executed hardscaping project will go a long way in beautifying your property and adding to the curb appeal. Although a DIY approach may help you save while building or enhancing your driveway, walkway or patio, the material or labor cost is not the only thing that you need to account for. Proper paver installation requires additional tools and equipment, as well as the necessary experience to achieve flawless results.
