Are you tired of being cooped up in the house with the cold and rainy weather we’ve had this winter? Are you dreaming of enjoying the great outdoors? Take a look at your backyard and think back to the enjoyment and relaxation that it provided in the warmer seasons. Are there things that you want to do to improve it this year, to make it even more enjoyable? We’ve noticed at many home improvement stores there seems to be a trend in expanding living space to the outdoors.
One such option is the addition of paving stones. Whether in the form of a patio or a walking path, the addition of paving stones is sure to create a space in the backyard that is peaceful, yet beautiful. Paving stones are useful in outdoor spaces because of their durability, variety of colors and ability to transform outdoor living areas.
Walking Paths with Paving Stones
Paving stones make wonderful walking paths through backyards, side yards and garden areas. The stability offered in a walking path made with paving stones allows those on the path to have a more solid foundation under their feet. This is especially helpful with the many hilly yards in the Towne Lake area. If you do install a walking path with paving stones, don’t forget to keep any trees and bushes at bay with proper pruning.
Create a Patio with Paving Stones
Paver patios look absolutely gorgeous when done right. Who doesn’t see a beautifully hardscaped patio and dream of outdoor cooking and dinners? However, when not properly installed, these patios can easily become an eyesore and a safety hazard with uneven and protruding pavers. Before installing a paver patio, it is important to have a large enough space that is completely clear. From there, this space can become filled in following do-it-yourself instructions or with a professional installation team.
These are just two simple ways to enhance your backyard and expand your living space with paver stones. The possibilities are endless. There are some beautiful examples on RPM Landscapers and Pavers Facebook Page. Do you have any spring time projects you are looking forward to?
