Using Interlocking Pavers to Create A Stunning Driveway or Walkway
Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Sunday, 20 August , 2023
Your driveway and walkway are often the first things people see when they visit your home, but how often have you thought about the impact they have on your home’s curb appeal? It is easy to allow your driveway or walkways to blend into the background and forget them, but what if you made them a beautiful focal point instead? With the installation of interlocking pavers, you can do just that while, at the same time, making a long-term investment in your home’s value.
What Are Interlocking Pavers?
Most driveways and walkways are made of poured concrete. There is a good reason for this: concrete is relatively easy and inexpensive to install and works in almost every location. However, it is plain and uninspiring to look at and, over time, will crack and break, requiring expensive repair or replacement. It can also be stained easily with oil or other substances, making it unsightly.
Fortunately, there is an easy, beautiful alternative to concrete: interlocking pavers. Interlocking pavers are pieces of concrete that are formed and then put in place like a puzzle, creating a beautiful pattern. Unlike traditional poured concrete, interlocking pavers will last for many years and can be created in nearly any color and style imaginable. They can be used for walkways, driveways, patios, and any surface where you want a durable finish.
What Are the Advantages of Interlocking Pavers?
There are a number of advantages to interlocking pavers, including:
Quick, easy installation. Unlike concrete, pavers are ready to install the moment they arrive at your doorstep. Your installer will dig and prepare the bed with gravel, lay the pavers in their proper position, and then backfill with dirt. When finished, the pavers will last for many years with no cracking or movement.
Easy to repair or replace. If a paver does become cracked or stained through some accident, you do not have to replace the entire surface as you do with concrete. Instead, you can simply pop the single paver out and replace it! This means that any repairs that are necessary to your patio, driveway, or walkway will be easy in the future.
One of the best things about pavers is their unique ability to be customized to any design. Your installer can create a beautiful mosaic or a plain brick pattern according to your particular taste and budget. Once installed, your driveway, walkway, or patio surface becomes a statement piece for your entire home, enhancing your curb appeal and creating a strong, durable addition to your landscape.
Long-lasting. Pavers are designed to last for many years without cracking or breaking. Because they consist of many small pieces fitted together, breaking and cracking are not an issue as they can be with long expanses of concrete. Many paver driveways last for decades, and paver patios can hold up to the toughest wear and tear.
Increase your home’s value. Ultimately, buyers love to see paver patios and driveways because they know that these items make your home more beautiful and valuable. Investing in a paver project is a great way to increase the overall marketability and value of your home.

Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
