Fall is a great time to be planning landscape upgrades. If you’re wondering which materials would give you the most value, it’s important to understand the limitations of various materials. Of all materials, concrete pavers are the most versatile. Here’s when concrete pavers should be a top choice in White Plains, NY.
1. The Driveway
Driveways are the first impression people get when they arrive at your house. No other material is as beautiful or as durable for driveway use as concrete pavers. If you’re worried that pavers could be damaged by snow plows, installing a driveway heating system will virtually eliminate that problem. And if you choose permeable paver systems, your driveway will stay drier and safer in any weather. Permeable pavers are identical to traditionally installed pavers in that they are impervious to water (which makes concrete pavers so durable), but the joint spaces between them are larger, and they are installed on a base that allows surface water to seep away.
Popular driveway pavers that can be installed as permeable include Town Hall. Town Hall pavers would bring the richness of brick to your driveway for a timeless and elegant look.
If you want a paver that’s suitable throughout your landscape, consider Richcliff pavers. Inspired by flagstone, Richcliff can give your driveway a textured and warm, rustic look on your driveway, walkway, patio, and pool surround.
Transform the look of your home’s entry area by choosing concrete pavers. Concrete pavers feature a non-slip surface, unlike some natural stone or clay bricks.
Beacon Hill Smooth pavers feature the rich blended color inspiration that comes from natural flagstone, but in a smooth-textured format that is often desired in contemporary spaces.
If you admire the look of brick, consider Copthorne pavers, which are inspired by timeworn European street pavers, or Mattoni pavers, which are a modern take on ancient Roman pavers. Copthorne offers a smoother, more polished appearance that could pair beautifully with traditional homes, while Mattoni features a distressed finish that offers a striking contrast to contemporary homes. Because both pavers are relatively small, they are well suited to curved walkways, which will add interest to your entry area.
3. The Patio
The epicenter of outdoor living, your patio deserves pavers that can withstand daily use while looking great. Patio pavers face the dangers of dragged furniture or spilled food and beverages, so you want to look for pavers that are built to last, despite potential harms. The chic modern Umbriano paver, for example, could be the ideal solution. The sleek finish is protected by EasyClean, a stain protection that is integral to the paver (it is not a surface sealant), and the unique colors come from a blend of real granite particles and richly colored aggregates.
Bristol Valley pavers feature the texture and blended colors of natural flagstone, while simplifying your life with EasyClean. The paver is available in a random bundle of three moderately sized units, which give you several options for laying patterns.
4. Pool Deck
The number one consideration at the pool is safety, but you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics because even smooth-textured concrete pavers from Unilock feature a non-slip surface. Umbriano pavers are popular for pool decks because they are swimsuit-friendly and sealed with EasyClean to prevent staining from pool chemicals. Or choose the Hex Paver with its eye-catching honeycomb shape and easy maintenance status because it’s made with EasyClean.
