Spring is one of the most exciting times of year, when you can really start to imagine a summer of relaxation and entertaining on a new paver patio in Brewster, NY. But a patio isn’t the only way to spruce up a landscape design: Walkways, an entryway, a driveway, or an entry court could be wonderful ways to add character and visual appeal to your landscape.
Today’s outdoor living spaces are a far cry from old-school rectangular poured concrete slabs. They feature sophisticated landscape designs that make the most of modern materials to create beautiful and functional outdoor “rooms” and often include amenities formerly found only indoors.
When it comes to patio pavers, there are many style choices, ranging from rustic flagstone-inspired pavers to pavers that feature the timeless charm and elegance of brick, to ultra-modern pavers with a fresh look that livens up any landscape.
The Richcliff paver from Unilock is a favorite for homeowners who admire the look of bluestone but don’t want the maintenance necessary with natural stone. The ultra-realistic patterns and textures pair beautifully with any architectural style. This versatile paver can be used in any pedestrian application, and it also makes an exceptional driveway paver.
Offer a warm welcome to visitors with a new paver walkway featuring a unique brushed finish: a modern texture that brings interest to the walkway. The Il Campo paver from Unilock comes in two sizes: 4”x8” and 8”x16”. The smaller size, approximately the size of a traditional clay brick, would complement a more traditional home. The larger size could be ideal for a more modern landscape, and it also makes a dramatic statement on driveways.
It’s hard to beat the classic look of brick to add elegance to an entryway. The traditional brick shape is truly timeless and versatile. Clay brick has a tendency to become slippery when wet, so substituting clay bricks for those made with concrete will ensure everyone’s safety. Copthorne pavers from Unilock could be an excellent choice due to their expanded color choices, which include Burgundy Red, Burnt Clay, and Old Oak if you prefer more traditional colors; or the chic Steel Blue and Basalt colors would allow you to use traditional-looking materials in fresh, modern colors.
Driveways and Entry Courts
Visually drab and requiring frequent maintenance over time, an asphalt driveway could probably use an update. Concrete pavers could be the perfect answer to a long-lived driveway. It would become low-maintenance and beautiful. Even better, you can install permeable pavers, which are a more eco-friendly option that allows rain and snowmelt to filter into the ground below, rather than running off. The Tribeca Cobble paver from Unilock is a wonderful option if you love the look of granite cobblestones (and if you’re worried about damage from snow plows or shovels, consider installing a driveway heating system that will ensure a clear, dry driveway all year long).
Accent the look with Courtstone pavers from Unilock: Their smooth, timeworn finish is a gorgeous complement to Tribeca Cobble pavers, as well as pavers inspired by brick, flagstone, or sandstone.
As you can see, there are many ways to use beautiful and durable pavers from Unilock in your landscape. Get more inspiration on the Unilock Dream page, or connect with your local Unilock Authorized Contractor.
