3 Benefits Of Using Pavers For Your New Patio

Posted on Posted in Landscape Designs


Spring is the best time to reclaim and revitalize your outdoor living space with a new patio to fully enjoy your backyard and garden in the upcoming summer months. When planning a patio construction, it is very important to consider the size, shape, layout and materials to use to create a fully functional and beautiful custom patio design.

When choosing the materials to use for your new patio, it is important to consider durability, affordability, and aesthetics. Flagstone, bluestone, cut stone,  concrete, brick and pavers are common options to consider when looking for materials to use for your outdoor living design & construction.

When it comes to patio construction, pavers are a popular choice for many homeowners due to the following factors.

  1. Pavers are more durable – Pavers are robust, stable and can withstand the extreme heat of the Summer and the freezing temperatures of the Winter while concrete slabs are prone to cracking or breaking in extreme hot and cold weather.
  2. Pavers are easy to maintain – Pavers contain elements that protect against color fading and cracking. They can be cleaned with soap and water only.  Also, if one unit cracks, it can be replaced individually without disturbing the rest of the installation which is not possible with concrete slabs.
  3. Pavers offer lots of creative options – Pavers come in different shapes, colors, designs and textures which give you the ability to create a stunningly beautiful custom patio design. With the use of pavers, you can also install walkways, retaining walls and a small outdoor fireplace which are great additions to your entire landscape design & construction.
