Many homeowners use pavers in their backyards to create beautiful patios, outdoor kitchens, and pool decks, but what about the front yard? Denver hardscaping can transform both the front and the back of your yard—so don’t limit yourself by keeping pavers hidden from view in your backyard. Here are some tips to help you spruce up your front yard with pavers:
Create a walkway.
Show guests right to your front door by creating a beautiful walkway with brick pavers. The paver walkway can either connect your driveway to your front door, or be completely separate from your driveway, starting at the curb or the mailbox instead. You can make this look your own by talking to a hardscaping professional about different designs and patterns you can use on the walkway. For example, you could choose two contrasting paver colors and lay them in a checkerboard pattern leading up to your front door. Or, place the lighter color down the center of your walkway, and use the darker color as an outer border on both sides of the walkway. Ask the hardscaping company to see a portfolio of their work so you can be inspired by their previous designs.
Use pavers on your driveway.
Although most homeowners choose concrete for their driveways, pavers are beginning to grow in popularity because of their elegance and durability. In fact, some experts believe pavers are up to three times stronger than traditional concrete driveways—and they look better, too. A paver driveway instantly gives your home a facelift, making it look newer and more luxurious. Pavers may cost a bit more upfront, but they are incredibly low maintenance, so you will end up saving a lot of money you would have had to spend on repairs if you chose concrete. Answer the question, “Are paver drivers more durable than concrete?”
Plant a garden.
Do you have a green thumb? Plant a garden of flowers and then outline the perimeter with a wall of pavers to add interest and architectural design to your front yard. Don’t worry—you don’t need a huge front yard to make this idea come to life. Even the smallest flower garden will look majestic with the perfect pavers surrounding it.
Don’t forget the mailbox.
Some homeowners have a mailbox made entirely out of pavers that matches the rest of the pavers used on their driveway or throughout their front yard. But, if you don’t want to commit to a paver mailbox, there are still ways to incorporate pavers into the area surrounding your mailbox. For example, plant greenery and flowers in a square surrounding the base of your mailbox, and then place pavers around the border. This doesn’t take much, but it makes a huge impact on the curb appeal of your home.
