Yesterday I talked about some of the great ways you can use pavers to increase the the visibility of your landscaped yard and enhance the visual appeal of flowers and shrubs but, have you thought about what to do it you areas in your landscaping simply have too many pavers. Maybe you got carried away in your enthusiasm for all the great shapes and colors available for pavers and built a driveway area that now looks like a shopping mall parking lot, or maybe that patio or BBQ area you created has turned out to be just too big, you don’t really need room for 100 people do you.
If you have too much area dedicated to pavers try breaking up the expanse by adding squares or circles right in the paver space and adding flowering shrubs or other types of greenery. Build small islands of green in the middle as well as on the edges of your vast sea of pavers as a way of softening the visual impact.
Building A Wine Tasting Area
How do you build an outdoor wine tasting area that includes 2000 square of pavers and a 40 ft by 18 ft arbor and do it all in 3 days? Well if you are the Ripken Winery in Lodi Calif you get the DIY network and tons of volunteers together for one massive building project. The DIY network just finished up filming the work for this project and will air in near future but for now you can read the story from Recordnet.com’s article entitled Vintage Television
