What Are Paving Stones?

Paving stones, generally made of a material such as brick, concrete, granite, or stone, are materials used at residential properties and commercial properties to enhance the landscape design.

Paving stones for backyard spaces, driveways, or pool decks are common due to their durability, sustainability, longevity, and ability to repel elements such as water, preventing long-term damage to your landscape design. Many pavers are stain-resistant as well!

There are many different types of pavers to choose from for patio paver installation, and the patio paver installation process can seem tedious. But with the right landscape design contractor, your new patio pavers will keep heads turning for decades to come.

By following these simple steps, learn how the patio paver installation process works before your contractor breaks ground for a complete understanding of the project scope.

Are Paving Stones Durable and Long-Lasting?

The longevity and durability of pavers is dependent on a couple different factors:

  1. What type of paver you choose
  2. Are the pavers sealed?

Paving stones must be sealed to prevent staining and other damage. In fact, this is one of the most important steps during the paver installation process and is extremely beneficial for the longevity of each paving stone. Failing to seal your pavers may result in erosion, weed growth, mildew and mold build-up, and discoloration. Sealing pavers will help to ensure your patio, driveway, pool deck, or walkway pavers look fresh and new for years to come.

As for durability, some paver materials are more durable than others.

Popular paver materials like limestone, flagstone, and fieldstone aren’t recommended for high-traffic areas, while brick and concrete are considered the most durable.

There are many types of pavers available to homeowners in Massachusetts investing in a landscape design remodel.

Paving stones for your pool deck, walkway, driveway, or patio remodel are a surefire way to update your landscape design and enhance curb-appeal. For homeowners planning to sell, paving stones also increase the value of your home and can even help to reduce your carbon footprint!
