Homeowners can easily personalize their landscape with a paver patio, walkway, or driveway. Pavers are durable, easy to care for, and available in a multitude of colors and styles, which make them a great alternative to concrete and masonry hardscapes.
Pavers are high-density pieces of concrete that can be molded into many different looks, including cobblestone, brick, and slate. Because of their versatility, pavers are used for a number of hardscapes, including driveways, walkways, pool decks, and patio surfaces. While they have many advantages over concrete and masonry, pavers are a premium product and could be more expensive than other standard options.
To start the paver installation process, the layout is designed and excavated, and then a stone foundation is laid. Afterward, the pavers can be placed in a number of designs and patterns, including classic designs, historical designs, and herringbone and basket weave patterns. Once the pavers are firmly tapped into place, the installer uses either polymeric sand or regular sand to fill the joints between the pavers. Polymeric sand binds together and becomes a permanent adhesive when sprayed with water, making it more expensive than regular sand.
A beautifully designed paver patio, driveway, walkway, or pool deck is a great asset to any landscape—adding value and increasing your home’s curb appeal.
