Old bricks, pavers, stone and blocks to accent the yard, decorate the patio or hide the problems. A landscape design is accentuated by decorating your garden and space. They are not only serving as a decor for roads, paths, driveways and walks. DIY projects can be finished with spiral patios or a simple fire place.
They can also hide things you don’t want people to see like the air conditioner or yard sump pump. But always allow air to flow around the a/c. Never restrict the unit with a solid structure because it needs ventilation.
Clay bricks make for a very graceful material for driveways, patios and walkways. You can use bricks as pavers if they are laid down properly and maintained regularly.
Concrete blocks are tall, wide and deep allowing them to fine for constructing stands for plants or bird baths.
There are primarily three paver materials: natural stone, brick and concrete.
Most common types of pavers are flagstone or fieldstone.
Pavers made of concrete tend to be harder and long-lasting. Stone gives off a natural feel and be used in many ways, like around gardens or edges.
Concrete patio pavers average from $6 – $15 a square foot. Bricks cost more, at $10 – $50 a square foot.
