Walkways / Patios / Driveways
The construction of walkways, patios and driveways out of pavers is an excellent alternative to traditionally used materials, concrete and asphalt. Interlocking pavers are resistant to frost heave and effects of adverse weather and aging. They are available in several colors and with a unique design they can give your home an identity all its own.

Seat walls are a simple and low cost way to incorporate a focal point that also serves as an entertaining area, as well as a showcase for design materials such as natural stone, into any outdoor garden space. The placement of seat walls in the garden can create great focal points. The low, unobtrusive walls can be placed to surround and highlight a fountain or favorite water feature, create a raised tree planter or add substantial seating area for entertaining guests.
Living on a steep slope, moderate hill or incline may make you consider installing outdoor stairs to allow for mobility and usability in your yard and landscaping.
Outdoor steps are similar to walkways in that they are used as a more permanent addition to the landscape and serve a particular purpose. Stairways often lead to specific destinations such as a front entries or patios. If built and designed correctly, stairways can increase the value of the home by adding usable space.
