When landscaping a yard, walkways often get overlooked. We concern ourselves with pools, patios, and plant selections, but then we neglect to consider how to connect the different spaces in our yard. By ignoring paths, a garden can become disjointed because of the lack of thought put into the transitions and connections.
Not only do walkways guide people throughout your yard, they can also be used to create a mood or atmosphere. You’ll want to start by determining if you are trying to create a formal or informal feeling. Then you’ll need to make a number of important decisions regarding shape, dimensions and materials, which can range from simple gravel to decorative stamped concrete. Other factors to consider include your budget, the desired traffic flow, the amount of foot traffic your walkway will receive, and safety.
Concrete driveways can be beautiful addition to your home. The wide variety of different colors and patterns to choose from can give your home a unique, one of a kind look. Stamped concrete driveways, patterned concrete driveways, colored concrete driveways, concrete driveway overlays, concrete driveway staining and dyes.
When it comes to durability, keep in mind the amount of traffic and the type of traffic your driveway will endure. If your driveway will have to endure exceptionally heavy vehicles, an above average amount of heavier vehicle traffic, or an above average amount of water runoff, a concrete driveway may be the answer and long term solution.
