For people with dips and crumbling asphalt on their driveways, there are many benefits to replacing the asphalt with driveway pavers. Pavers are durable, even more so than asphalt, as they add a unique pattern and design to your driveway.
Driveway pavers are easy to install, can withstand the weather changes more, and are simple to replace as you only have to pull up the one individual paver and place down a new one. In addition, these pavers divert water from the surface down into the soil. It deters downstream erosion of the land and offers more sustainability aspects to the environment.
Yet the interesting thing about these pavers is that they are not restricted to just the driveway. While not all pavers are suited for driveways, certain interlocking pavers mainly used for driveways can be used for other outdoor projects. When you are looking for a surface that can handle the heavy weight of objects, these pavers are ideal for patios with heavy furniture and outdoor kitchens in Houston.
These pavers are also ideal for pathways and garden walkways that may connect to your driveway. By using the same pavers, you are creating a uniform look throughout your yard’s landscape. You will have a look that is easy to maintain and is slip-resistant for people walking up to your home.
Projects suitable for driveway pavers:
- garden walkways
- front walks
- pool surrounds
- outdoor kitchen areas
- retaining walls
- garden and sidewalk borders
There are numerous styles to pavers such as the traditional brick pavers to modern pavers shaped in unique patterns. The type of pavers you choose should match the exterior theme of your home. Also, you don’t have to stick with one type of paver. You can mix and match pavers to create one-of-a-kind patterns that perfectly capture the decor design you want.
So when you are looking for a surface material for your driveway and other outdoor projects that is easy to maintain, helps with water runoff, looks beautiful and lasts for a long time, consider using driveway pavers. You may even be able to save money when buying in bulk as you can use the extra pavers to complete the other projects around the yard.
