Creating a walkway to the backyard, the front door or even just to the garage is a great opportunity to put an exclamation point to your beautiful landscaped yard and highlight your home at the same time. Using pre-cut pavers offers you the most choice in color and material as well as shape and cost. Pavers come in concrete, brick and stone and in more colors and styles then you will believe, so plan on spending a good deal of time matching the perfect material to your landscaping.
Adding definition to your yard will help the flower gardens ans shrubs pop, and set your yard into many different and interesting areas for people to view and spend time in. I’ve seen some yards where the owner has cut pavers into small sizes and edged their entire yard with a minimal boarder, it really shines.
It’s a good idea to choose the color, shape and material from actual samples to ensure you know what the finished project will really look like. We have an outdoor showcase garden at our Goffstown office that you can wander around in which will help you see examples already installed, stop on over and check it out.
Mulch As Frame
If you are familiar with the colors of the flowers in your yard you might think about framing them in a colorful mulch that will make them pop even more. You might be surprised at how much brighter the blossoms appear when surrounded with a contrasting shade of mulch.
