They Maintain their Form
Unlike poured concrete, or cemented stone/pavers, using interlocked pavers allows for the ground to gently move, while creating a hard service for you to use. With any slight move of the earth, the pavers adjust themselves to accommodate the change while keeping the integrity of the overall structure. Additionally, it prevents cracking and additional maintenance down the road (or driveway, pathway, patio).

Along with the initial selection of styles and colors, you can rest easy knowing that the pavers we use will hold their original state for years to come. By selecting quality pavers, we are confident they will maintain their structural and aesthetic appeal.
Like any hardscape feature, there is rarely is a ton of maintenance. General clean up means getting rid of debris and occasional weeds that find themselves a nice spot to grow in. If you are interested, many of our clients like to use natural crawling plants like moss or creeping thyme to fill in areas of their paver work. Additionally, pavers can be cleaned and sealed to help keep color and protection to the elements.
