Stabilize Your Property with a Retaining Wall

Posted in Retaining Walls

Winter can bring high moisture levels that can cause erosion on your property. This is especially true for lots that contain hills and slopes. When the soil erodes, it can ruin your landscaping efforts and even damage your home. One of the most affordable and aesthetically pleasing options to stabilize your property is with the addition of a paver retaining wall.

Benefit of Using Pavers for Retaining Walls

When it comes to stabilizing soil, you need a solid material for your retaining wall. While wood and natural stone boulders can both be used for erosion controlling walls, there are some benefits of using pavers, including:

  • Durable. Pavers will last for many years, unlike wood that can rot when in contact with soil.
  • Strength. Like natural stone boulders, pavers are strong enough to handle the heavy load of slope erosion, offering a solid foundation to stabilize your property. Many pavers are interlocking, offering even more stability.
  • Affordable. Pavers can be much less expensive than some other forms of stone. You can chose from marble or travertine pavers or man-made options like concrete or brick.
  • Beautiful. Pavers create a uniform, beautiful retaining wall that is also functional. There are many different sizes, shapes and colors to choose from.

If you want to protect your property from erosion damage this winter, consider adding a new retaining wall. There are many different styles and options that can add curb appeal to your home while adding erosion protection. Talk to your local contractor that offers paver retaining wall construction to discuss the best options for your home and budget before those winter storms start rolling in.

Pave a New Path to Your Home

Posted in Paving

Are you lacking a sidewalk to your front door, or is your old walk cracked and sprouting grass? Maybe it’s time to lay a new path to your home with classic pavers. A quality paver walkway protects your front lawn and landscaping from visitor’s feet, and adds a touch of beauty to boost your home’s curb appeal.

Benefits of Pavers for Pathways

Pavers are one of the most desirable materials for sidewalks and pathways due to their beauty, durability and easy maintenance. The only drawback for most homeowners is the initial cost. Pavers can be more expensive than other options, yet if you consider the benefits, it may be worth the investment.

  • Curb appeal. Paver pathways are a beautiful addition to your front entrance, enhancing your home and increasing its value through added curb appeal.
  • Lasting power. Pavers are very durable, lasting for many years. Unlike poured concrete, the flexibility of pavers allows for subtle changes in the soil without cracking.
  • Low maintenance. Paver surfaces are easy to repair and maintain, with low-cost replacement possible for individual pavers available when needed.

These benefits are often worth the extra investment over other options. In addition, there are many paver choices which may be much more affordable for homeowners on a tight budget.

Unrivaled beauty and easy care makes pavers an excellent choice for sidewalks, as well as other outdoor area around your home, including patio areas and pool decks. If you are considering adding a new pathway or replacing an old sidewalk on your property, talk to your local paver contractor about the value and benefits of using pavers.
