Tips to Stay on Budget for a Patio or Driveway Project
As with any landscaping or hardscaping project, prices can vary greatly depending on the size and scope of the job as well as the materials you choose. Your budget has the potential of going off the rails if you don’t have a handle on it from the start.
Large or Small Format Pavers
The vast selection of pavers is dizzying. There are colors, materials and different styles to choose from, and then there’s the size. Should you go with large or small pavers for your outdoor project? The choice comes down to a few factors: the size and shape of your space, the ambience you want to create, and the purpose of your pavers.
Project Management Tips
Every hardscaping project requires strong management and oversight to ensure everyone is satisfied with the end result – especially you, the homeowner. You may not be the one laying the pavers, but you are considered an essential part of the team.
EasyClean Technology for your Outdoor Kitchen
Let’s face it. Outdoor cooking and eating can get a little messy, and most people would rather enjoy their outdoor space than spend a lot of time cleaning it. The good news is, there are several styles of patio pavers to choose from that are specially created to take the brunt of kitchen spills and mishaps, helping to make clean-up of your outdoor kitchen faster and easier.
Sweeping Curves or Right Angles
Think of pathways and walkways as the map for your outdoor world. They help guests navigate safely through your property, and highlight features such as a fountain or a formal garden. Paths take walkers on a journey to outdoor living areas like the pool, back patio, gazebo or firepit area.

How to incorporate landscape lighting into your outdoor project design
Lighting is one of the most magical elements of landscape design. Sometimes referred to as “nightscaping,” it creates a warm, inviting ambiance that beckons us outdoors – inviting us to linger long after dark.
Incorporating a Water Feature into Your Landscape Design
Few things soothe the soul like the sound of gently flowing water. Imagine a waterfall cascading from a curved wall in your pool area. Or a luxurious fountain to accent your backyard patio. How about a pond placed alongside your patio walkway?
How to Properly Excavate for Your Paver Project
Whether you’re installing a new paver driveway, walkway, patio or retaining wall, proper excavation is a crucial first step. It must be done safely and efficiently so each next step can occur as planned. After all, regardless of what your project is, the ultimate stability of the structure relies on its foundation.
Does Curb Appeal Really Increase Your Home Value
You’re out for an evening walk and you notice how nice the house down the street looks. The lawn is lush and green. The gardens are colorful and aromatic. The home’s entry is warm and welcoming. You think to yourself, “That home is well-taken-care-of.” Maybe, with a slight touch of envy, you even wish you could live there. That’s curb appeal.
A Fire Pit for Every Style of Home
A fire pit will transform your outdoor living space. The warmth and soft light from the flickering flames create a special ambiance for gatherings that linger long into the evening. Socializing around a backyard fire is a perfect relaxing way to end the day.
Spring Maintenance for Your Unilock Pavers
The moment you select a pattern for pavers is when you really bring your outdoor living spaces to life. Paver patterns can be used to highlight specific areas, add depth to the patio design, section off a space or an “outdoor room”, and create strong visual interest.
