Embrace the Journey

Incorporating paver walkways to kick of an outdoor experience is a great way to highlight other areas of your space that may not be getting the attention they deserve. Often, the shortest path to the destination is selected which can limit the ability for guests to reset ahead of entering your space.

Add a Fire Feature

Adding a fire feature into your backyard landscape is a great way to add warmth, ambiance, and functionality to your outdoor living space. Not only do fire features provide a cozy gathering spot for friends and family, but they also extend the use of your outdoor living space well into the cooler months. From fire pits to fireplaces, there are many options available to suit any style and budget. Plus, fire features can be customized to blend seamlessly with your existing hardscape design, making them a perfect addition to any backyard.

Define Your Spaces

With the textures, colors, and sizes of paver products available today, dedicate some time in the design planning phase and consider adding complementary pavers into a space as a border or inlay that may help to define certain spaces within your installation.


Include a Retaining Wall or Seat Wall

Wall products can be used to create level surfaces for seating, gardens, or outdoor living spaces, they can be used to create varying elevations, and can be designed as build in seating. They can also add texture and interest to your backyard space. Retaining walls come in a variety of materials and styles, making it easy to match your home's aesthetic.


Feature an Outdoor Kitchen or Dining Space

An outdoor kitchen is a must-have for any outdoor entertaining space. An outdoor kitchen can range from a simple built-in grill to a full-service kitchen with a refrigerator, sink, and countertops. Having an outdoor kitchen makes it easy to cook and serve food for guests without constantly running back inside.
