Do you want to personalize your landscape and make it an outdoor living space? Then, installing a paver walkway or patio will be a great idea.
In order to install the paver perfectly, there are several factors that need to be considered. In this article we will look upon some of the most important factors that influence the installation of a paver.
Factor # 1 – The Location
Determining the location of the walkway is one of the most important factors. The location helps you understand what type of paver patio you require. It also helps you in finding a place that is away from underground utilities and large trees.
Factor # 2 – The Design
Depending on the location, you can select on the design of your paver walkway. To do so, you need to make a rough plan of your existing landscape. Furthermore, you can create a proper design of the paver walkway that you require for your home landscape. Consider the important elements involved like the sight lines from doors and windows.
Factor # 3 – The Size
The size of the patio should be enough to accommodate your desired furnishing. For instance, if you want to utilize the patio for having meals, then there must be ample space to set up a dining table. If you are falling short on space, then you can set up a tea table for snacks. The common sizing of a walkway is 2 feet in width and 4 feet in length.
Factor # 4 – The Materials
Once, the location, shape, design and size of the patio is decided, it is important to look for the best materials available in the market. This helps you make an estimate of the foundation of the paver and how long will it last.
Factor # 5 – The Cost
Last but not the least, considering the total cost of paving will help you plan a budget accordingly. Depending on the budget you can find ways to implement your design for the walkway.
