We’re all ready for spring, but heavy rain often creates a mess of its own. Tired of kids and pets tracking in mud from outside? Eliminate the indoor muck once and for all with a paver walkway outdoors. It will improve the look of your home’s exterior, and keep the interior more pristine.
A paver walkway or paver path withstands heavy foot traffic and guides people through your yard. It can be simple and useful, or more elaborate and decorative to make a statement. Going for a formal English garden look? How about a Romanesque cobblestone path? Or maybe you just want a simple stone path from your driveway to your house?
Whichever look you’re trying to achieve, Cutting Edge Hardscapes can turn your dream paver walkway into reality with a quality hardscape design that helps eliminate the mud and creates a beautiful entryway to your home.
Here are some factors to consider as you design your new paver walkway:
Plot Your Own Paver Path
As you consider the best paver walkway design, think about where you want it to go and what features on your property you want it to connect. A primary path typically leads to and from the front and back doors and goes to a street or sidewalk. Homeowners often choose a wider, straight path that’s easy to follow and creates a formal look. A secondary path, which may curve and narrow, connects to the primary path as it branches off into other areas of your landscape.
Choose the Best Paver Materials
Paver stones and concrete pavers come in a variety of styles, colors, patterns, shapes and sizes. The design consultants at Cutting Edge Hardscapes will work with you to create a design that fits your unique style, and we guarantee our stones will never crack or break. Paver stones tend to cost a little more than pebbles, gravel and other materials, but they offer high durability and last a lifetime. As a general guideline, cost of paving stones range from $14 to $28 per square foot installed.
Concrete pavers also come in a variety of styles and colors, and can be installed in different patterns for visual appeal. Look for a hardscape professional who’s ICPI-certified, which means they’ve achieved the highest certification from the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute. The ICPI-certified pros at Cutting Edge bring the knowledge and experience needed to properly build your concrete paver walkway.
Paver Walkway Ideas
Ideas for paver walkways are endless. Maybe you want a meandering path that curves and disappears around a corner to a secluded bench or water feature. Or a straight, narrow path bordered by shrubs or plantings leading to a vegetable garden. Possibly a stepping stone path from your driveway to the sidewalk, or pavers with a stone border to break up the green and add interest to a lawn-dominated yard.
