Why To Choose a Paver Patio Over Concrete
Many of us in the Twin Cities metro live in clay soils. This means that the soil retains water and come spring, is more prone to heave. Yes concrete is cheaper in the short term, but heaving means those unsightly cracks and uneven areas on your concrete patio. Because pavers are segmented, your patio will not crack as concrete would. Also, when installed, a geotextile fabric under the base that the pavers sit on acts as a blanket so when the soil moves, the whole patio moves with it, and then settles back as one. This keeps your patio at one level, as opposed to “lips” that can form with concrete.
Let’s also not forget the aesthetic advantage pavers bring. The endless number of combinations of types, colors, textures, as well as inlays or banding of pavers can create a patio that will truly be unique and fit the function and look that you desire. And the compliments you will receive about your paver patio from Spear’s Landscape will surely bring a smile to your face.
So before you jump at the fact that concrete is cheaper from the beginning, think about the long term advantages and types of awning. If your concrete cracks and heaves, the cost to replace it will be greater than the cost of pavers would be in the first place. Also, the longevity and aesthetic value pavers have over concrete should make pavers an essential part of any new landscape patio or walkway.
