Materials and Maintenance: What Will you Choose for Your Hardscaping?

When it comes to choosing the right paving material for your Denver hardscaping job, it’s important that you know the right materials. Here are a couple of popular materials and their benefits and drawbacks:


Flagstone is widely available with a large color range. Although it’s relatively easy to work with, there are some color variations that can make it less uniform looking. It also can crack and chip and may need replacing over time.


Asphalt is commonly used for driveways as it is one of the most economic options for paving. It’s also good for the extreme fluctuations in Denver’s climate. Asphalt can handle temperature changes better than say, concrete, because it flexes. They do have a long lifespan, but still, require maintenance and may crack over time.

Stamped Concrete

Stamped concrete is generally easy to install and is a low cost option when choosing a material to use for hardscaping. Unfortunately, its downfall is that develops cracks fairly easily and the only way to repair it is to replace the whole slab.
