Getting Creative with Paving Stones

Paving stone projects aren’t one-size-fits-all, though you could create a stunning addition to your home with a standard design for a driveway or patio, why not switch things up and get creative?

Show off your artistic side. Make your driveway or patio a piece of art with a custom designed paver patio, walkway or driveway. It adds curb appeal for people wanting to show off their property or those looking to sell their home.

A mosaic design gives your space a unique look unlike all of the other homes on the block. Set your property apart from the rest of your cookie cutter neighborhood.

Prefer a more natural look? If you want to incorporate some greenery into the mix but still love the look of pavers, consider setting pavers apart and create a “zen” type area by placing the pavers apart and allowing grass in between. This is a great idea for a courtyard setup, which gives your space an uncommon touch that is both creative and functional. Cut down on maintenance by using artificial grass.

Some may view a sloped yard or a space with multiple levels as a challenge, but this gives you ample areas to work with, creating visual interest and separate areas to entertain. We have many options for retaining wallstone systems here at Island Block & Masonry Supply, such as Cambridge and Nicolock products, and we’ll help you choose which system best fits your needs. Retaining walls can be used for extra seating, as a garden border or as a supportive or decorative structure.

Stack paving stones to create a raised garden. If you line the bottom of the garden with pavers you will also prevent weeds. Paver stones do double-duty to create a beautiful garden that is different from others while also nipping any chance of weed growth in the bud.

Warm up to other ideas! You don’t need a huge outdoor area to include a fire pit on your property, we have fire pit kits available that are made for self-assembly. Now all you need are some marshmallows!
