Your brick paver hardscape design should go hand in hand with your property’s landscape design. The two should complement each other and flow easily from hardscape to landscape. By coordinating your hardscaping with your landscaping, you can create a great environment that provides perfect curb appeal. In fact, it can raise the value of your home, which will be extremely beneficial if you ever decide to sell! Below are a few tips for coordinating the two:
Colorful Flowers: Pair various shades of red brick pavers with vibrant flower colors for a bright and happy feel! Some popular colorful perennial flowers in Denver (perennials bloom each year so are a great one-time investment and planting) include the Aster, which has a rose-purple-like color that resembles the daisy. Another flower option is the Beardtongue, which are tall vertical drought-tolerant flowers that grow in a very vibrant purple shade. Next, the Alyssum is a popular choice that consists of a golden yellow color. It would pair very well with red brick pavers.
Fencing: Hardscaping and fencing go hand in hand. Often times, various types of hardscaping are along a pathway, which a fence can surround. One of the latest trends in fencing is to create a long horizontal slat in white or dark colors. To create contrast, if you have white fencing, you can choose dark pavers, or if you have dark fencing, lighter color pavers can complement each other well. Depending how close your pavers are to your fence you can play with colors combinations. You can work with your Denver hardscaping company to find a color scheme that works well.
Spaced Out Pavers: Some homeowners are playing with the traditional design layout of brick pavers and are choosing to leave one or two blank spaces to plant flowers in place of where a paver would have gone. Another one of the latest hardscaping trends is to space out brick pavers within your grass lawn to create a cool, geometric effect. Wondering what this looks like? Check out these examples of using grass between brick pavers from Houzz.com. It truly provides a unique look, whether it is in a pathway leading up to your house, or in the back yard—possibly around a pool. Many that go this untraditional route also use a special type of grass that requires little maintenance. So overall, this option can save you time in the long run and give your outdoor space a truly unique look!
Islands of Plants: Do you have a large front or back yard? Consider creating an island of plants and small trees surrounded by pavers. Some homeowners will even create a driveway surrounding a plant and tree island. The combination of the pavers and colors of the plants and tree can really make a statement.
