Stone Pavers – A Beautiful Addition to Your Home

There are almost an unlimited number of ways to add beauty, value, and enhance your enjoyment of your home using natural stone pavers or manufactured pavers.  Pavers is a generic term for natural stone, brick, or cast concrete blocks that are used to create all types of durable, attractive outdoor surfaces such as patios, walkways, pool decks and driveways.  Pavers are usually square or rectangular shaped although some manufactured pavers are made in a variety of interlocking shapes.

Your local landscape supply center will carry many different types and styles of pavers to fit your design and budget.  Natural stone pavers are cut from quarries or rock formations and can be almost any type of stone such as granite, travertine, slate or marble.  As the name suggests, natural stone pavers are not manufactured but are natural stone cut to the desired size and shape.  Natural stone pavers are typically not uniform in color and add a rustic beauty that is hard to beat.

Manufactured pavers include brick pavers and concrete pavers.  Brick pavers are similar to traditional bricks and are made from clay and kiln fired for hardness.  They are normally rectangular, red or tan colored and can be uniform in color or have subtle color variations.

Concrete pavers are manufactured in various shapes and sizes using colored concrete.  Because of the way concrete pavers are manufactured, they can create a tightly fitted, uniformly colored surface.  Various colors and shapes can be combined to create almost any pattern desired.

Whether using natural stone, brick or concrete, pavers are an attractive alternative to traditional concrete or asphalt surfaces.

Spring Paver Projects

Spring is here and your landscaping professionals are getting busy.  This is a great time to get that beautiful patio, walkway, driveway, or other outdoor living space you have always wanted.  Call today while your landscaper still has time to schedule your project and to take advantage of plentiful supplies of attractive natural stone pavers that are now available. 

Later in the year, your landscaper will be swamped with new projects and maintaining existing landscapes.  In addition, supplies of natural stone pavers will have dwindled and the choice pavers may be out of stock.  Paver supply companies buy big in the spring in anticipation of the spring and summer rush, but let inventories drop as we head toward fall and winter.  They don’t want to be carrying too much inventory through the slow winter months. 

You will find the best selection of high quality pavers at your local landscaping supply company during the spring.  Pavers come in a wide variety of types and styles.  Many pavers are manufactured in various sizes, shapes and colors that can provide an attractive outdoor surface.

For a truly stunning patio, driveway, walkway, or other outdoor living area, consider using natural stone pavers.   These pavers are formed by nature over millions of years and are either mined or extracted from a quarry.  Each stone is unique and has a beauty that can’t be matched by a manufactured paver.

Don’t let another season go by without an exciting, beautiful outdoor living space for you and your family to enjoy.  Stop in to your local landscape materials supplier and check out the selection of natural stone pavers.
