If you enjoy home improvement projects, especially those that are outdoors, stone pavers are the ideal landscape material for you. Pavers make it simple to create new hardscapes in your outdoor living area or yard that are both functional and beautiful. At Green Landscape Supply, we offer a wide variety of stone and paver products, from stunning flagstone and stacking stone to manufactured pavers and bricks. Here are some benefits of using stone pavers for building a new patio, walkway, fire pit or retaining wall.
Variety of Sizes, Shapes and Colors
You can choose from a wide assortment of pavers when planning your next project. From concrete grey to natural hues of brown, tan and red, there are stone pavers in many varieties. The formed pavers are uniform in size and shape, which can make them simpler to use for building a retaining wall, raised flowerbed or fire pit. Unique shapes of flagstone can be more challenging for paving patios and walkways but offer a natural appearance.
No Mortar Needed
Paver projects do not require mortar to hold them in place. Some pavers can interlock together or stack perfectly without the need of anything to hold them in place. For paving, pavers and natural stones can be laid in sand with a drainage layer underneath. Once in place, sand can be swept between the pavers to seal the spaces and keep the pavers stationary. Without mortar, the pavers can easily be removed, replaced or repositioned if needed.
Stone pavers are very durable and last for many years, especially those made from natural stone. Unlike concrete or other paving materials, pavers can move slightly and adjust to shifts in the soil, which can spare them from cracking and crumbling like concrete. Pavers need little maintenance to keep them clean and beautiful, and a garden hose is all that is usually needed to remove mildew or debris. If a paver is damaged, it can be easily repaired or replaced without needing to repair the entire paved area.
