Outdoor spaces built with pavers and patio bricks craft an I-Deal-Lifestyle. There are many common uses for these building materials around your home. Let’s look at some of their applications for inspiration for your next outdoor project.
Many pool decks on the West Coast utilize pavers. They can stand up well to water splashing on them, as they’re quite durable. Pavers make the outdoor space look dynamic and often achieve better results than a concrete deck. Repairing cracks in concrete decks can get costly, depending on the extent of the damage.
On the contrary, pavers are easier to repair. If they start to fade or you notice any cracks, these are signs it’s time to replace your pavers. Switch out your old paver for a new one—a far more affordable solution than fixing a concrete deck.
Pavers and patio bricks are commonly used in patios, as they work efficiently together. Even if your outdoor space utilizes a cement base, patio bricks can enhance the concrete patio by creating a border or small wall around the edge. This accent makes the space much more eye-catching and helps divide up the space in the backyard.
Alternatively, if you’re looking to build a patio from scratch, pavers are an affordable choice and very low maintenance. Since many types of pavers exist, you can tailor the design to your tastes. Plus, they’re versatile, so you can create just about anything with them for the I-Deal-Lifestyle, from fire pits to benches.
People with green thumbs will want to take their gardens to the next level. While pavers look great around a garden, they also are highly functional. These stones lend themselves well to flowers and vegetables by providing protection and drainage.
We often think pavers and patio bricks are synonymous with pathways. Like the other projects mentioned, you can take plenty of creative liberties when crafting an entryway to your front door or a path to your garden in your backyard. You can do one solid path or have a divided path to make it unique. Contrasting patio bricks also provide a nice accent to pathways when you use them as an outline.
