How to Use Paving Stones in the Garden
Spring is the best time to play in the garden. You can use paving stones to make your space more beautiful and more enjoyable. Pavers are a fantastic solution for a variety of your garden needs, and we can install them without disrupting your surrounding landscape.
Here is how you can use paving stones in your garden.
- Create a path. A pavers walkway is both beautiful and durable. It can wind through your garden, connecting flower gardens to herb gardens and casual seating areas. You can use them to create a pathway that when walked, is exceedingly soothing.
- Design seating areas. When you are enjoying the garden, it is nice to have a comfortable place to sit with friends. A place where you can listen to the birds, watch the butterflies, and smell the fragrant aroma of the beautiful flowers you have planted. The challenge is that most outdoor furniture is not very durable and may need replacing every couple of years. Paving stones are an ideal solution because they are extremely durable and are designed to handle extreme weather temperatures and the change in seasons. Paving stones can be used to create the surface for your seating area and to build benches for you to relax on. You will never need to worry about bringing them indoors or preparing them for a storm.
- Build planters. You can add visual intrigue to your garden by building planters that can be used as raised flower or vegetables beds. They can be built in any shape and size – round, square, rectangular, it is all up to you. For additional design creativity, consider building the planters at various heights to create a stunning backdrop for your seating area. This is also ideal for people that have a very small outdoor space to work with.
- Create privacy. Pavers walls can give you complete privacy and seclusion. In Los Angeles pavers walls are extremely useful as many homes are on small lots and looking at your neighbors isn’t necessarily relaxing. Unlike standard cement walls, paving stones are beautiful. They come in multiple colors and textures and have an old world feel. When you use them to create privacy, the effect is similar to an old Spanish courtyard. As an added bonus, the privacy wall will also block out street noise so that you can really relax.
Once you have a design perfect for your garden space, there are additional features that can make your space even more relaxing. You can consider adding a cascading fountain. If you live on a busy street, this will help to block a lot of noises and give you the ideal place to relax. You can also plant specific flowers that will attract hummingbirds and butterflies so that you always have something interesting and beautiful to watch while relaxing on your garden bench.
