If you’re wondering how to highlight your outdoor living spaces? Pavers are the ideal flooring that can be used on:
Pavers are durable and long lasting, thus are most suitable to withstand outdoor elements like dust, water, snow, rain, mud and other particles.
Homeowners with sizeable backyards can use pavers to accentuate certain areas of their yards. Pavers aren’t easily damaged and come in different designs to suit your preference.
There are so many ways to work with different paver designs for garden steps and walkways. They do not have to be straight and plain. You can have the pavers cut into irregular shapes to create absolutely stunning patterns or use curvy designs for a more free flowing form.
Pavers can also be placed in the middle of a garden as a footpath or to create a sitting area. Pavered footpaths keep people from stepping on the grass and serve as an alternative route to other parts of the garden or house. Also, pave the edges of your garden to protect it during windy and rainy seasons.
Setting stone pavers in a circular fashion produces the look of a courtyard. You can use it to highlight a garden or lawn feature such as a mini waterfall or fountain.
If you’re laying the pavers yourself, make sure the foudation stones that are found at the very bottom are level to avoid uneven paving. If some foundation stones are higher than others, pound them with a rubber mallet to level them.
Use accent stones in between paver bricks to highlight geometric patterns. Accent stones take the place of grass that usually grow in these spaces. So you don’t have to worry about maintaining the grass or pulling them out every now and then.
If your house is more linear and geometric in design, using round pavers will break the monotony. You can have them stained or colored to contrast with the surrounding plants and other outdoor décor.
