paver-patio




As part of your landscape design, paver-patio and paver walkways create a pleasing look and feel to the entry to your home, and to your outdoor living space.


Many people want a change from the plain old concrete look. With pavers you update and modernize a drab outdated approach. Pavers are not set in the ground with grout, but lay side by side in a dry type "lay".

If you have sinking areas, pavers can be lifted one at a time, and then soil added and compacted to level the surface, without having to take out the entire walkway.

As an example, we had a water leak which caused the water to search out places to drain to. The natural route to follow was the drain system or sewer lines to the road which went under the sidewalk. This leakage ultimately carved out a hole the size of at least 6 basketballs under the sidewalk. The only way this could be dealt with was to remove the brand new cement sidewalk (a length of over 10 feet)) and fill the hole with compacted soil and rock and then pour new cement walkway.

Had we used pavers, we would have only had to remove a 4-5 foot area of pavers and then instead of having to buy new pavers, we could have reused the same pavers to finish off the walkway. This would have saved us hundreds of dollars in the process of fixing the problem.

Pavers have a look which is pleasing and inviting to come out and relax in your lounge chair after a hard days work.

patio pavers around a firepit Some people put in firepits surrounded by paver patio bricks which make sitting around the firepit in patio chairs an easy thing to do.

build a firepit Our firepit is sur- rounded by grass, making it necessary to remove the chairs before mowing the lawn. If we had used pavers there would be no need to deal with the chairs at mowing time. We live up north, and this pix was taken in the winter, but you can get the idea.

backyard This pix shows you the backyard with the firepit surrounded with grass. It's taken at a bit of a distance when compared with the pix just above, but again it shows the grass and supports the idea of, in this case, not having a paver-patio around a firepit.
