Why Patio Pavers are the Way to Go

When creating the perfect landscape design for your home, what do you appreciate most in a design? Beauty? Sustainability? Customization? Durability? Well good news, patio pavers offer all these benefits and more. With pavers, you can create beautiful mosaics, a unique entertaining area, and easy-to-maintain hardscaping.

No matter what the end design is, pavers are an amazing component when planning your outdoor living space.

Patio Pavers Have Low Maintenance Cost

Patio pavers are a great option if you are looking for low maintenance material. Just sweep it regularly and keep it free of debris. Because they are so easy to clean, they don’t typically require any chemicals or scrubbing. A light power wash when the pavers are looking dull is all it takes to liven up their appearance.

If you want extra protection, they can be sealed after the first year to keep stains away and maintain the longevity of the patio.  The three types of sealers are natural, satin, and gloss and they usually last 5-6 years before having to be resealed.

Are you routinely maintaining your pavers but still seeing damage? There’s an easy fix for that. Because each paver is a separate piece to your landscape, you can easily replace one or more of them for minimal cost without redoing your entire living space.

This option isn’t possible for materials like concrete that require a full overhaul. Even if a large section of your patio gets damaged, replacement of pavers is often still cheaper and quicker compared to other materials.

More Entertaining Space

Opting to use patio pavers rather than a grassy landscape offers you more livable space. Pavers help ease minor uneven areas that might be unusable otherwise.

A well-built patio using pavers provides you with extra room for a grill, furniture, entertainment, or even a few potted plants. It’s a great way to create additional livable space for cooking, dining and entertaining.

With a creative paver patio designed for outdoor living, you and your family will have a place to create lasting memories and increase the value of your home.

Pavers are Durable

Patio pavers not only look good, but they are also very durable. They’re strong, abrasion-resistant, and flexible. They can take a lot of hits without cracking, and they are extremely weather resistant.

Snow, ice, rain, and even small earthquakes won’t damage your patio. Even if the ground underneath your patio shifts, pavers can shift with it. The integrity of your outdoor living space will be maintained with no cracks or damage.

Sustainable Living Space

As you learned above, there is no shortage of paver variation. You can even choose permeable pavers that are better for the environment. The beauty of permeable pavers is how they reduce your environmental footprint.

By filtering runoff from the rain, they reduce contaminants in ground water reserves. This creates a healthier, more lively landscape in the long run and is better for the environment.

More townships are requiring people to maintain their properties and natural, permeable pavers help to not overwhelm township drainage systems.

Other Patio Materials

There are other patio materials that allow you to create personal unique touches and finishes to your property. Other types of stone and hardscaping materials to choose from for your patio include:

  • Concrete
  • Natural Stone
  • Wood
  • Brick
  • Laminate
  • Gravel 

All these options can create a beautiful landscape. However, they are not as customizable or easy to maintain.
