Walkways connect your outdoor spaces and invite you to meander

Pavers add elegance to that utility

Beautiful paver pathways and walkways can border your softscape areas or weave through your outdoor space, even your garden areas. In yards, these hardscape elements entice and invite you to meander deeper, perhaps even to find a place to pause, sit, and reflect.

Here in the Bay Area, walkways are more functional than they are decorative because of the size of most yards, but even so, designers have ample opportunity to develop a look that suits your unique style because of the abundance of options for paver size, shape, and appearance. 

Pavers give you more walkway styles than you can count

If old world is the look you want to capture, employ cobblestones. Rather have a contemporary look, then choose sleek linear pavers.

Differently shaped paver stones can be combined to form a repeated pattern, and a contrasting stone border can enhance the look. Distinctive pathway designs like these add visual interest to your outdoor space.

Paver walkways connect spaces

Straight paths are the signature of modern landscapes and provide fast, direct routes to various “destinations” within your outdoor space. Wide paths are excellent in your front outdoor space to lead to the main entrance to your house. 

Paver walkways create spaces

Walkways also give definition to adjacent spaces, influencing their size, shape, and sense of connection to other parts of the yard. 

Tracing paths can break the yard into zones. 

And slicing paths cut through spaces, splitting them into smaller separate zones, a fire pit gathering area in one, an outdoor kitchen in another, for example.

Paver walkway FAQs

Less expensive doesn’t always equate to the best value. Concrete is less expensive to install, but if you calculate in long-term cost, pavers are the more affordable option. For example, poured concrete slabs will crack as a result of encroaching tree roots, freezing and thawing cycles, and other shifts in the ground. When this happens, repairs can be costly. In many cases, you have to rip it up and do it all over again. Not so with pavers. Small sections can be removed and replaced at a very low cost. 

Limestone, flagstone and fieldstone are not recommended for high-traffic areas. Brick and concrete pavers are strong and durable and can handle a lot of traffic. 
Weeds growing between pavers used to be a big problem, but with the advent of polymer sand to fill the cracks, this isn’t much of a problem anymore. When it’s installed properly, poly sand hardens in the paver joints and and doesn’t allow seeds to take root 95-98% of the time.
 
If weeds do take over, the joints can be cleaned out and new poly sand can then be installed.

Sealant should be applied every 3-5 years. 

Pavers that aren’t sealed will be more likely to grow weeds in the joints. They will also fade from wear and UV breakdown.

On the plus side, besides protecting the color of your pavers, most paver sealers will harden the joint sand. It is then less likely that you will have settling or shifting of the pavers caused by joint sand loss.

How long they last depends on the type, but usually, they can last 50 to 100 years (even longer). Unlike concrete slabs or asphalt, pavers can be easily repaired without replacing the entire walkway.
