A beautiful walkway to your outdoor living space welcomes visitors not just to your backyard, but to your backyard retreat. An attractive paver walkway is filled with character and charm, and hints at even more beauty in the landscape. If you’re not sure about the design, here’s how walkway pavers can help to determine the aesthetic theme of a Seaford, DE, backyard.
Take your design cues from the home and the landscape. Walkways and patios are a perfect opportunity to integrate your home into the natural surroundings. This is why concrete walkway pavers are the ideal choice. Concrete pavers mimic the look of natural stone, but offer several key advantages such as slip-resistance, durability maintenance, and ease of installation.

Enhance a modern home with large-format pavers for a clean look. Modern architecture is characterized by simplicity and clean lines, and this is a theme to carry over into the hardscape areas of your backyard. Smooth, oversize square pavers can help you encourage a clutter-free transition into your backyard outdoor living spaces. If your walkway sees a lot of traffic, place these pavers side by side for greater width. If you want your walkway to feel like it’s a part of nature (much like a stone slab walkway), space the pavers apart and fill the spaces between with grass or decorative stone.
Casual and Relaxed
When most people think about their backyard, they want a place where they can relax and unwind. This means a less formal space filled with natural elements. A casual and relaxed space lends itself to textured pavers such as Bristol Valley from Unilock. Bristol Valley pavers feature blended colors for the look of natural flagstone. These versatile pavers look great next to any architectural style, and are available in cool Steel Mountain and warm Bavarian.
There’s something delightful about a curving walkway that meanders through the landscape, unhurried and relaxed, where the journey is just as important as the destination. Smaller brick-shaped pavers are ideal for this since their shape is perfect for creating curves with a minimum of onsite cutting.
Mattoni pavers from Unilock come in two warm earthy colors perfect for blending into the surroundings, as well as a dramatic Dark Charcoal if you want your walkway to pop (this color looks stunning next to a white home).
Or you can use Unilock Courtstone pavers, which are inspired by well-worn European cobblestones. Pair these with a picket fence and bountiful rose bushes for a walkway with unparalleled charm.
Why do what everyone else is doing, when you can be yourself? For a traditional yet artistic look, Unilock Copthorne pavers give you the look of traditional clay brick (but with some fun color variations); between artistic laying patterns and the ability to mix colors, you can have an amazing walkway that stands alone as an important feature in your landscape. Popular laying patterns for brick-like pavers are herringbone, basketweave, fan, or circular.
