A brick walkway can add style to your yard and provide a convenient way for your family to access different sections of your property. However, homeowners often must first decide whether a straight or curved walkway would be most appropriate for their yard. If you are interested in adding a Denver brick walkway to your yard, you should learn about the pros and cons of straight and curved walkways.
A straight brick walkway can provide many functional and aesthetic advantages. Straight brick walkways are highly versatile, as you can have top Denver hardscaping companies install the straight walkways in many areas of your yard. For instance, you can have the straight brick walkways lead up to the entrance of your home, or the experts can align four straight walkways to wrap around your home. Additionally, backyard walkways are also very beneficial. You can have the walkway lead up to a garden, patio, pool, fountain, or barbecue area. The walkway then highlights and accentuates the destination or focal point of the path. For a pool area, the straight pattern of the bricks leads the eyes up the walkway, directs the vision to the pool area, and then allows the pool to stick out with an important and enticing appearance.
Straight walkways are not as effective for large backyards with numerous features. It might be difficult to have one straight walkway lead to each feature of your backyard, and instead you might need multiple walkways to lead to each feature. As a result, straight layouts for Denver brick walkways are generally more conducive for smaller backyards than for large yards. Straight brick walkways generally do not occupy much space and can maximize the amount of open grass space that is available in the smaller yards.
The top Denver hardscaping companies can also install a curved brick walkway. Certain benefits accompany the curved layout. The ability for the many attractive bricks to form smooth and slender curves provides a very graceful and elegant appearance. The curved layout also provides more design versatility than the straight paths. Aligning the bricks with curves can enable you to determine the overall shape of the walkway, the locations of the curves, and the yard areas through which the walkway leads. Additionally, if you have multiple features scattered throughout your yard, the brick paver experts can also arrange the curved walkway to reach all of the features. The experts can weave it to the patio, pool, fountain, and garden features. Connecting every feature with one curved walkway generates a very impressive appearance and also enables your family to conveniently reach each feature from the walkway.
Curved Denver brick walkways are usually not ideal for smaller yards. Weaving the bricks around the yard can occupy a substantial amount of territory and diminish the amount of open grass space that is available for your friends and family. Additionally, curved brick walkways are also more expensive than straight brick walkways. The experts need more bricks to complete the curves, the installation process is more difficult, and so the material and labor costs tend to be slightly higher than for a straight layout.
