If you are looking to add some depth and interest to your yard or garden, brick pavers are a great way to do so. They are extremely long lasting, and retain their shape and color for years after installation. You will pay minimal maintenance costs to keep them looking great. They are also resistant to damage from water, fire, and wind, and are slip and skid resistant, so you can spend time in your garden, even during rainy weather. There are many creative ways that you can add brick paving stones to your garden. Here are some paving ideas for your garden to get you started.
Create a garden path
If you are new to working with bricks, adding a small path to your garden is an easy way to start. If you have a large backyard, it is also a great way to break up the space and add some depth and dimension. Thin, winding paths are very charming and can be installed in a day or two.
For a perfect addition to a winding, secluded path, add a small brick bench to relax on. This is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the scenery, and it looks great with large trees or bushes surrounding it.
Build a verandah area
Create a wonderful space to relax by using paving stones to create a flat verandah. This is the perfect place to spend time on a summer day, or to host meals and get-togethers. Using fire-proof bricks is an especially good choice for a patio, because you can BBQ safely without worrying about fire accidents.
Border a water feature or pool
You can use paving stones to create a border around water features in your yard, such as a pond or stream. This not only helps keep the water confined to its intended spaces, but also makes the water features look much more modern. You can also use brick paving stones around your pool. Since they are slip-proof, you don’t have to worry about getting water around the outside of the pool.
Build a set of stairs
If you live on a slope, a terrace or staircase is a great paving addition to your yard. Although this is an intensive project, requiring digging and leveling, a staircase looks lovely and also makes it easy for guests to navigate your garden. You can also grow flowers and other plants on terraces for a dramatic effect.
