Backyard Pavers – Patio Designs For Family And Entertaining
Families are always looking for ways to have fun and enjoy time together, and there’s nothing like entertaining friends in your backyard at home. Using pavers to build a patio area for entertaining and expanding your outdoor living spaces can give you what you want.
Paver patios are one of the most affordable and quickest ways to hardscape the backyard of your home. Pavers fit nicely and evenly together and are easy to design with. They’re easier to bring to the worksite than concrete. You can create a unique paver patio design, use them to expand an existing concrete slab porch, or create a walkway to join the swimming pool area to the patio.
Using Pavers To Expand Your Existing Patio
It’s easy to add pavers onto an existing concrete patio area you may already have. Since the shapes are preformed concrete or stone, and there are so many different colors and shapes to choose from, there’s no limit to the paver patio designs you can create. If you select the right stone or concrete pavers, the new hardscape will look original to your home.
In many cases, a landscaping professional can install pavers over existing concrete slab porches or sidewalks. If not, then it might be best to stain or stamp the concrete if you want to spruce it up to compliment the expanded new paved patio area.
Building Brand New Paver Patios
Does your family like to get together for meals or to play games? It can get unbearable if your indoor spaces are tight and cramped when you have extra guests over. By extending the living area outdoors, you’ll make the most use out of your property. The new outdoor space for barbecues or to entertain will make it more enjoyable than crowding everyone indoors.
If you don’t have a patio or porch in the backyard, pavers are a great solution to expand your outdoor living space. We suggest building a larger paver patio design with either a solid gazebo type roof or a pergola cover.
Pavers To Build Outdoor Fireplaces
While you’ll want to save the most by using other cheaper materials to build the underlying part of the outdoor fireplace, pavers are perfect for the outer layer. They’ll go seamlessly with the paver patio and or can provide a new decorative style for the rest of the hardscaping.
As far as choosing the styles, colors, shapes, and types, you’ll want to get the help of a landscaping professional like Winesett Nursery & Landscaping in Virginia Beach. With expert advice from an experienced contractor, you’ll get everything you want out of the project.
