The versatility and the benefits of using pavers in your Boise, Idaho landscape

More and more people are discovering the beauty of landscaping with precast paving stones.  Paving stones come in a variety of materials and are extremely versatile.  What makes paving stones ideal in many situations is that they do not need mortar to hold them together and can stand alone on a sand or gravel base.  Because of their size, pavers are easier to install in small places and don’t require any heavy equipment.   Another plus to using pavers is that if there is damage you only have to remove the individual paver and replace rather than dealing with a large solid surface.

For those who are seeking to be environmentally conscious in their landscaping, they might want to consider some of the recycled concrete or recycled glass pavers.  Terra-cotta or adobe bricks that are not fired in a kiln are considered to be the most environmentally friendly paver available.

Permeable pavers are a great option for those concerned with their environmental impact.  Permeable pavers are installed over layers of aggregate and varying sized stones that directs water to the underground aquifer and filters it, mimicking the natural way that land absorbs water.  This type of paver also eliminates the hazard of standing water where mosquitos can breed.

Pavers come in so many styles and shapes that they can fit in with a formal or traditional landscape or a modern urban landscape.  They can be used for pathways, driveways, patios, and around pools and firepits and just about any hardscape you desire in your outdoor space.
