The Benefits of Using Pavers for Driveways, Decks and Walkways

Posted by Landscaping, Irrigation and More On October 5, 2012

Using pavers for driveways, decks and walkways have many benefits.

1. Pavers Are Good For The Environment
Pavers are made from natural products like limestone, cobblestone, slate or granite so they don’t contain pigments or dyes. They also allow rainwater to filter through and distribute directly into the ground instead of rolling over hard surfaces like concrete where it will pull excess pollutants along the way that will eventually make their way into the storm drains and waterways.

2. Pavers Are Stronger Than Concrete
Pavers can handle a tremendous amount of weight. They are actually 3 x’s stronger than concrete. Pavers are individual pieces installed to form a surface. Because they are individual they adjust to the movement of the earth below. A Concrete surface will crack when the ground below shifts.

3. Pavers Are Easy To Maintain
Pavers require sweeping and rinsing. You will need to apply weed control and they will need to intermittingly be re-sealed.

4. Pavers Are Safe
Pavers have a non-skid surface so they aren’t as slick as other surfaces. They are especially good as pool decks where there is a higher risk if slipping.

5. Pavers Add Beauty and Value

Pavers increase the value of your property. They add beauty by allowing the homeowner to be creative since there are endless color combinations and design possibilities.
