Or maybe you’re ready to claim your neighbour’s title of best driveway and walkway?
The fact of the matter is that your landscape project doesn’t need to be expansive in order to stand out.
When choosing an installation design pattern, the final decision has to make sense for your outdoor living space. Pattern inspiration below.
Questions You Need to Ask Yourself
When selecting a product, compare the size of the space to the size of your pavers or slabs. Generally speaking, smaller outdoor living spaces demand smaller slabs or pavers. The opposite is true for larger landscapes.
Once the size of the pavers or slabs is decided then you can move on to texture. Is the desired outdoor living space more modern or more traditional? Are there long straight lines in the design or are segments smaller so as to divide the space? If you have long straight lines in your landscape design, opt for more of a modern looking product like Techo-Bloc’s Travertina and Inca collections. If the area is more traditional, consider Antika or Villagio instead.
Designs that are tailored for certain looks will really help narrow down your search. When in doubt, get inspired! Completed projects on Houzz are ideal for that, as are before and after pictures. Once you have selected a product to use, consult the manufacturers recommended installation patterns. Usually, the suggested patterns mix well with the style of design you are attempting to achieve. Next, think of adding a border (potentially one with a vibrant colour) so as to help define the space. Remember these tips when selecting your design pattern, but also remember to have fun with it. Ultimately, this space is going to be one you’ll enjoy for years to come, so make sure it reflects you!
