4 Ways to Put Patio Pavers to Work With Your Landscape
Learn tips for creating permeable walkways and adding curb appeal to your home with patio pavers.
You can add charm, character and value to your home by putting patio pavers to work around your property.
The landscape surrounding your home is one of the best places to improve the curb appeal and value of your property. You can use pavers in the planting areas, in the living areas or as sidewalks around the space for some visual emphasis. Here are the top four benefits of using pavers in your landscape:
1. Increase your property’s value
One of the first things an appraiser evaluates on your home and property is the landscaping. The right amount of landscaping will enhance the home and also provide segmented outdoor living space.
Patio pavers are the perfect material for establishing a living space off the back door or maybe in a corner of the yard. Choose pavers that reflect the personality of the home, but that also will create a framework for landscaping plants.
2. For safety’s sake
The proper installation of stone pavers can create walkways around your home that are safe to maneuver. Permeable pavers reduce the amount of standing water around your yard because they allow water to flow through the pavers into the base of the sidewalk or the ground below. Your pavers contractor can build the surface you desire to create a safer environment for you, your family and your guests.
3. Crank up the curb appeal
The way your home and property looks to potential buyers, or to you when you pull up each day, is important. Putting stone pavers or other patio pavers around the yard for design and functionality can be a vital part of increasing curb appeal.
Work with a pavers contractor to determine the different spaces you should emphasize and which applications would work for your home. The driveway can offer plenty of potential for eye-catching paver designs.
4. Improve drainage
Flat areas around your home can become a hazard during heavy rains. Large spaces, such as driveways, can cause heavy runoff or other issues with drainage. Installing permeable pavers allows the water to flow through the pavers. This decreases the runoff from your driveway or walkways. It also may help to improve drainage around large, flat spaces in your landscaping.
Safety and style
Adding paver designs to your landscape has the potential to offer many benefits. The right paver design can add character to your home and increase curb appeal. Working with your paver contractor can help you to create installations that will increase safety for you, your family and your guests. Stone pavers and other patio pavers may help to improve drainage around your property.
