BEST USES FOR CONCRETE PAVERS
Concrete pavers have a variety of applications from small residential walkways to massive commercial plazas. Concrete pavers can also be a substitute for poured concrete or asphalt in driveways, roads and parks. While the uses of concrete pavers are nearly limitless, here are a few great applications of pavers and paving stones in residential and commercial settings.
- Patios: When constructing a patio at your home or business, concrete pavers are an affordable and aesthetically pleasing option. Because concrete pavers are permeable, they also prevent rainwater runoff and will never create puddles like poured concrete can. With a variety of styles and colors available, your patio pavers can perfectly complement the existing design of your home, from simple Interlocking or Village Pavers to stylish Belgard Urbana.
- Driveways: Concrete pavers are slip-resistant and provide more traction than poured concrete or asphalt. For colder climates, concrete pavers are resilient during freeze-thaw cycles and will not crack. Able to withstand more pressure than poured concrete, concrete pavers are durable for heavy vehicle traffic. Driveway pavers also offer the bonus of enhanced curb appeal and style.
- Public parks and courtyards: Urban runoff can cause erosion and flooding that stresses municipal sewer systems and contributes to water pollution in cities and towns. By using concrete pavers in parks and courtyards, cities can effectively manage rainwater and eliminate runoff. In green spaces, Turfstone Pavers preserve the natural environment while providing a firm foundation for biking, walking or driving. Concrete pavers are affordable to maintain, as it is easy to replace damaged pavers to keep public parks beautiful.
- Sidewalks and walkways: Concrete pavers offer versatility to create straight city sidewalks or winding garden walkways. Concrete pavers provide excellent durability during freezing weather and offer more traction during slippery and wet conditions. To create safer sidewalks, VIP pavers for visually impaired pedestrians can be used to mark changes in the terrain, such as curbs or steps. VIP pavers have raised bumps that also offer superior traction for all pedestrians.
- Other residential hardscape features: The applications for residential concrete paver stone do not end at patios and driveways. Concrete pavers can enhance the look of poolside patios, fire pit surrounds, gardens and more.
- Other commercial hardscape features: Landscape architects and city planners can incorporate environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing concrete pavers in a wide variety of designs. Concrete pavers are an affordable and beautiful construction option for shopping mall plazas, trails in urban greenbelts and courtyards for schools and universities.
The potential uses of pavers and paving stones in your residential or commercial hardscape project are as limitless as your imagination. Create your dream backyard patio or design permeable pathways that help reduce stormwater runoff in urban spaces.
