Adding an outdoor patio can bring some notable benefits. A simple paver patio can increase your home’s value, extend your living space, create an area for entertaining and even boost your health with more exposure to Vitamin D. The good news is that there are a wide variety of pavers to choose from when designing your patio, including various patters, colors, textures and shapes. The bad news is that it can be difficult to narrow down the best options for your budget, style and space. In fact, choosing patio pavers can be outright overwhelming without the help of a professional.
At Woodburn Landscapes, we want to make your patio design and installation as painless and stress-free as possible. In doing so, we recommend asking yourself the following questions before you select your top choices for stone pavers.
How will you use your patio?
Consider the functional goals for your patio along with your aesthetic preferences. Decide if it will be a hotspot for entertaining and dinging or more of a gardening container or transition space.
What style and shape is best for your patio?
The surroundings of your patio are important when planning its shape and style. It needs to blend and balance with your backyard landscape as well as your home’s exterior.
How durable should your pavers be?
In general, pavers are easily maintained and durable. However, certain pavers may be better than others if you plan to have a lot of foot traffic or heavy objects on your pavers. Will the pavers be covered or exposed to extreme weather?
These are just a few of many factors that come into play when selecting the best pavers for your outdoor patio. At Woodburn Landscapes, we are ready to walk you through the entire process or simply help you explore your possibilities.
