After an unusually cold winter, Phoenicians are embracing 70˚ temps by going out and engaging in outdoor activities; attending spring training games included. Spending time outside is rejuvenating and good for optimal health. At home, people often spend time working in the garden, lounging by the pool (it’s still too cold for swimming) or entertaining guests on their patio. This is also prime time for landscape projects.
A popular landscape supply that is beautiful, functional and durable are concrete pavers. This material is available in variety of shape, size, pattern, and color options. It is also one of the most versatile materials, meaning it can be used in a wide range of landscape projects such as patios, driveways, walkways/pathways, raised garden beds, and many more. Here are the top 4 uses for pavers.
Homeowners are increasingly choosing concrete pavers when building or remodeling their patios. Square footage, shape/design, and color should all be considered before going out and purchasing materials. This will help you narrow your options. Some popular material types for patios include Forza Stone, Holland Pavers, and Circle Pavers. You can install an amazing inlay using the latter type as well.
Concrete paver driveways put plain pavement to shame. They are amazingly durable, stain resistant, and virtually maintenance free. This project type begins with a solid base – usually sand, gravel or other landscape supplies – which interlocking pavers are then set into. Although concrete pavers are available in a variety of shapes, patterns and colors, be sure to consider your home’s architectural design.
Walkways are a great way to create natural movement throughout your yard. Pavers can be set solo or with other compatible landscape supplies, like pea gravel, or sod or artificial turf. For garden walkways, you might want to incorporate a seating wall or bench, or other inviting hardscapes. To give the illusion of width, consider laying pavers in diagonal or horizontal rows, rather than in a straight line.
The versatility of pavers can enable homeowners to create a circular design around a fire pit, or a L-shaped design for an outdoor kitchen, for the ideal entertaining venue. They can also be used to create fun backyard game spaces (e.g., horseshoe pits, oversized chess boards, hopscotch, etc.). Pro tip: Choose materials in contrasting colors and patterns for a truly random feel.
