Patio & Walkway FAQs Homeowners Ask Us
Here are the answers to the most common questions people ask our hardscapers:
You can build your own patio, though homeowners tend to be more satisfied with professionally installed patios.
You’d need gravel or limestone pavers as a base, sand, and the patio material of your choice. Bricks, pavers, and flagstones all create durable and beautiful patios.
Gravel patios are typically the most affordable patio material and are quickest to install. They blend well with less manicured gardens or backyards and provide excellent drainage. However, they may not be comfortable to walk on and can be challenging to keep level.
A mulch and stone walkway can significantly enhance your home’s curb appeal. It’s a practical solution to keep your feet dry and avoid muddy paths leading to your front door. Stone walkways are easy to install and require minimal maintenance.
Flagstone is a beautiful and durable option for a more upscale look, although it’s one of the pricier path options. Due to the unique shape of each stone, installing flagstones can take more time compared to other pathway materials.
