Are you daydreaming about ways to transform your outdoor living space or commercial property once spring rolls around? You can do so by having VistaPro Landscape & Design incorporate brick pavers and inlays into your design! We serve Annapolis and the surrounding region, adding elegant brick pavers and inlays to large and small patios, along with performing other hardscape services.
Brick Paver and Inlay Overview
Brick pavers are manufactured to be laid flat on the ground. They differ from the type used vertically for walls, chimneys, and other construction projects. Inlays are designs that break that monotonous brick up with special patterns that stand out from the bricks around them. You could call this “interlocked paving,” which dates back to Roman times.
Instead of using concrete, asphalt, or natural stone, you could cover your patio with brick pavers and inlays. Why do this? Well, it gives an elegant look and can increase the value of your home. They’re not run-of-the-mill! It’s a creative way to show your personality through what’s underfoot. When guests come over, they will marvel at the brick and designs incorporated into it.
Here are a few reasons brick pavers and inlays are a great investment!
Durable and Flexible
Brick pavers are good for patios because they are durable and flexible. Pavers don’t crack and can handle movement underneath them, so root growth, frost, erosion, and even earthquakes don’t bother them much. Because brick pavers can allow water to drain through, they’re eco-friendly, easy to maintain, and versatile too! You can choose from different textures and styles for the look you prefer.
Easy to Move and Repair
If a paver gets broken or stained, it’s easily removed and replaced. Unlike concrete/asphalt, where you’d get an awkward look making a small repair (unless you decide to replace the entire surface), brick pavers are like Legos– take one out, replace it with another, and the whole thing still looks good! Plus, if someone needs to make underground repairs (to pipes/cables below the surface), a couple of bricks can be temporarily removed to accommodate this.
Weather and Slip Resistant
At VistaPro, our brick pavers and inlays resist deterioration from deicing salts. Their physical properties allow them to last quite a long time, continually looking good to all who see and use them.
Brick pavers also have a naturally textured surface that helps against slipping or skidding. Due to their high-level abrasive characteristics, they are generally preferred in areas with heavy rain or snowfall. Brick pavers are ideal for homes where pool parties occur during summer.
Inlays are a great way to break up a monotonous look. Maybe you want your family’s crest represented. How about adding something fun, like a graphic or artistic-looking “object” you like underfoot, such as a dolphin or flower? Inlays are kind of like tattoos for your patio. What kind of creative designs might you like to see underfoot?
Rather than deal with unsightly cracks that can happen with poured or stamped concrete or blacktop which gets hot and looks cheap, consider brick pavers and inlays for your patio!
