Red Maple Landscaping, Inc. uses Town Hall Pavers for a Traditional Front Yard Walkway in Hudson Valley, NY
Town Hall pavers from Unilock offer a robust solution to hardscapes that call for the charming, traditional look of brick. With a strength of up to four times that of poured concrete, granted by Ultima Technology, and the ultra-realistic surface textures offered by Reala Surface Technology, it’s easy to see why they were chosen by Unilock Authorized Contractor, Red Maple Landscaping, Inc. for this walkway project in the Hudson Valley, NY.
The team are building the walkway using an open-graded installation method, incorporating ⅛” clean gravel, thus bypassing the need for bedding sand. Town Hall pavers are equipped with built-in subsurface spacers, allowing them to act as permeable pavers in this installation. They’re also compatible with traditional, non-permeable installation methods, should permeability not be desired for a particular project.
Before the pavers can be laid, the Red Maple Landscaping, Inc. team use a bolster to smooth the edges of the existing concrete bed of the porch. This will ensure a neat, flush fit for the pavers and a seamless transition from one hardscape surface to another.
To complement the traditional aesthetic of the Town Hall pavers, the walkway makes use of the long-established running bond laying pattern. The pattern smoothly follows the flow of the walkway, guiding visitors to the front door of the home. To frame the walkway, a simple soldier course border has been chosen.
To ensure speed and efficiency, the team forms a human chain, allowing the paver layer continuous access to pavers. This way, the pavers can also be sorted quickly to achieve the most effective color variation.
Once laid, this walkway will provide a lifetime of service to the homeowners. The coloring of these Heritage Clay Town Hall Pavers is protected by Unilock EnduraColor Facemix Technology. This manufacturing process protects against both mechanical and environmental color fading by combining concentrated wear-resistant aggregates with a base of larger aggregates that provide structural support.
