After carefully evaluating your project for a patio, in-ground pool area, driveway, and/or walkway, for your Northeast Ohio home, you will then be ready to decide if pavers or concrete is the best product for your project. Keeping in mind that concrete is installed in large, solid slabs, and although has the advantages of stamped patterns, rough- safety textures for greater accessibility for those with disabilities, or acid-stains; pavers are interlocking tiles of concrete. You should keep in mind that living in Cleveland, Ohio, we have the winter season which sometimes puts Spring time smack dab in the middle of it with warmer weather than back to the freezing cold. The constant freezing and thawing does not bode well when you look at concrete as an option. Pavers has a number of these same features as well as concrete does, however; with pavers, should one or a few become damaged, you just need to replace the one, not the entire slab. Pavers also offer the flexibility of both colors and architectural appearance options, including many shapes and sizes.
If you are considering a paver patio, however; your space available is modest, perhaps consider an intimate setting paver patio which might include a fire feature. This cozy area also includes a seating wall for additional guests as well as lighting within the wall for both atmosphere and safety. Enjoy star gazing from your patio on those clear Cleveland nights, while being kept warm from your “bonfire” in your fire pit.
If the have the capability to have a larger patio that is needed to entertain a few friends at a time, maybe think of a separate gathering place along with a separate space for a fire pit. Perhaps you would like to include a covering over the outdoor living space. Either one will keep you protected from the elements if you should so desire. Pictured here is a Pergola which you have the option of having a canvas “roof” which offers some protection from the sun or rain.
For those desiring larger areas to entertain; consider different levels separating your gathering from your star watching areas. With a larger area you can also include additional features such as: fire pit or fireplace, a water feature, a mingling section as well as an eating area. There are so many different options available to you, at Baron Landscaping, we can help customize your Outdoor Living Space to accommodate your needs.
Perhaps you have an in-ground pool that you are considering adding a pool deck which will expand your entertaining and “ray” catching spaces. This is the perfect time to see about constructing your pool deck with pavers. You can custom design your deck with any style paver or color as well as include some additional features to enjoy. Here is an idea for you which would work well should your yard slope down to where the pool is built. By installing retaining walls and stairs, this will make your journey to your pool side much easier and quicker and takes away the dreadful navigation of the downward grade or your yard.
Are you looking for a place to relax and get away from the stress of the day? You may want to consider adding a water fall feature to your paver patio. The sound of water gently cascading around you is is not only very calming, but will more than that, help to reduce the noise of your neighborhood, be it traffic or other sounds of the neighborhood. Pictured here along with the water feature are large retaining wall flower boxes which have been incorporated so that you can plant your favorite flowers filling your back yard with the beauty and aroma’s that they offer.
