Brick Pavers: Best Choice for Outdoor Hardscapes
When you are thinking about installing hard surfaces in your Macomb County landscape, you have a variety of choices: concrete, stone, and brick pavers just to name a few. Each choice has its pros and cons. Some may work better for one application but not another. If you are considering a new outdoor living space for your home or want to replace or upgrade an existing hardscape, here are some reasons why choosing brick pavers is your best option.
When people think of durable surfaces for outdoor landscaping, they often think about concrete. Yes, concrete is durable, but concrete has maintenance issues that make it difficult to deal with as it ages. Concrete pavers give a homeowner the same durability of concrete, without the maintenance issues as they age. If you are thinking about a new driveway, and like the look of pavers but think they won’t stand up to your vehicles, think again! When installed by a professional, brick pavers make a very durable driveway surface that is beautiful and will last a long time. And, because they can be a great non-slip surface, sealed brick pavers are a durable and safe option for your poolside decking and outdoor living spaces, as well.
Easy to Maintain
There’s not much you have to do, to keep your brick paver hard surface looking great. Once they are installed and sealed, brick pavers require very little work to keep them looking great. Sweeping the surface to remove debris like dirt and leaves is the easiest way to keep them clean. You can even use a gentle hose to wash down your patio or driveway if it needs a little more than a sweeping. If you have an uneven spot, you don’t have to remove the whole surface, just take out the necessary bricks, add new sand and replace.
Brick pavers aren’t just for your driveway, patio or sidewalks. They can be used for a variety of landscaping details, that when done together, can coordinate all of your hard surfaces. When you are planning to install brick pavers for a patio or driveway, think about the other features that you have in your landscape that may need an upgrade. Brick pavers make beautiful fire pits, flower beds and retaining walls. If you are thinking about upgrading your existing patio, or already have a paver patio and want to coordinate your other landscape features, consider using pavers for all of your landscaping details. A quality contractor that specializes in installing brick pavers will be able to match the pavers for your new features to the pavers in your existing features.
Color and Design Options
Brick pavers aren’t just red or grey anymore. Pavers come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. If you are looking for something unique and want more than just a plain, single color surface, brick pavers can be installed in a variety of patterns and designs that will make a big impact in your landscape.
