Three Types of Paving Stones for Your Outdoor Space
Not only do pavers add a natural beauty and elegance to your outdoor space, but they are also the most durable alternative to concrete. Interlocking paving stones are designed to lock together in order to prevent anything from growing in between and are made to shift with the ground to prevent any cracks.

They are manufactured and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Homeowners also have the option to choose the type of paver they’d like. Before beginning your pavers project, make sure to choose the paver type that best fits your need. Below are three paver options.
Tumbled pavers are typically the standard pavers you will find when shopping around. They go through a specific process that wears down sharp edges and gives them a sort of natural, antique look.
After the process is completed, the edges appear to be broken or chipped, giving them a unique old world feel. If your home is truly your castle, you may want to consider using tumbled pavers.
These pavers are not smooth, but have a textured look for a more custom, expensive appearance. This is generally the best paver for surrounding pool areas as the texture may prevent anyone from slipping and falling.
A smooth, solid surface makes these pavers an easy solution for anyone that wants a cohesive look in their outdoor space. You can use the same smooth pavers on your driveway, walkway and patio to keep your landscape looking uniform. Smooth pavers are a simple solution to quickly add a polished, classy look to your home that lasts.
When deciding which pavers are right for you, go online and look for paver specials. You can find deals and discounts that will help you to save hundreds of dollars. This is especially useful when doing a large pavers project.
It is also important to select the right contractor. Read reviews and, if possible, select a pavers contractor that has received an Angie’s List Super Service Award so that you are guaranteed of excellent customer service. We have received this award three years in a row.
