Paver Patio Design & Installation in Alpharetta
Our Synergy Landscape Group team knows hardscaping can significantly impact your commercial or residential property. Using paver stones can be a great way to improve and enhance your landscape. Paver stones come in a variety of styles and can serve a variety of purposes. For instance, you can use paver stones for patios, porches, walkways, fire pits, and pool decks. Our team can access various colors, styles, and shapes to accommodate your wants and needs. The stones are designed from durable materials, meaning they will last for years with minimal maintenance required on your part. Paver stones can stand alone or be placed on a gravel base with mortar.
Types of Paver Patio Designs
It’s easy to have a unique design with interlocking paver stones. These stones are available in a wide selection of shapes and colors, so it’s easy to mix and match. Plus, interlocking stones are designed to last for decades. These designs are easy to maintain. One stone is easier to replace than an entire surface, like concrete.
Precast paver stones are high-density materials similar to natural stones. They can withstand compression and are also water resistant. Precast pavers have a crisp, smooth surface that can resemble bricks, squares, or rectangles. Our team can help you with a customizable design and installation in Alpharetta and the surrounding areas.
Tumbling is an additional step for some paver stones. During this process, the stones are tumbled with grit on a low spin setting for an extended period. Tumbling the paver stones adds an aged, weathered appearance and gives a natural stone texture with a soft edge. Precast stones are tumbled at the manufacturing plant.
Open cell paver stones are designed with drainage in mind. These stones are typically not solid, as the negative space makes it easier for water to pass through. Open cell stones are great for parking lots; they aid in avoiding water build-up on the surface. The open cells of these paving stones are typically filled with gravel or grass. These paving systems are as strong and durable as traditional paving materials such as concrete, asphalt, or compacted gravel. Several types of porous paving grids exist, including plastic grid pavers with flexible joints, rigid or rolled plastic pavers; interlocking concrete grids; and porous concrete and asphalt pavement.
Turf paving is similar to open cell paving. A turf stone paver is a latticed paving stone that allows vegetation to grow between the voids or be filled with stones so water can flow through its cells. These pavers allow you to keep the look of a lawn with the durability of a paved surface. These are developed to enable equipment to drive over the property, provide a paved surface, and be used for overflow parking. Turf pavers typically feature a lattice texture; they allow rainwater to be gradually filtered back into the soil naturally, resulting in the control and stabilization of soil by reducing runoff. The open cells can be filled with artificial turf for a greenbelt appearance where reduced maintenance and water use are desired.
Stone pavers are not typically manufactured – they are cut from quarries and not made from molds. Some of the stone pavers our team uses are remnants of pre-war pavements created from hewn stone and resemble cobblestones. Stone pavers can be a little more challenging to install than other products, like their concrete and brick equivalents. They are very aesthetically pleasing; Stone pavers come in various sizes, colors, shapes, and textures, and can be installed in many different patterns, providing many options for your commercial or residential landscaping project. The natural color and texture variations usually found in these products add natural beauty. Stone is also one of the most durable materials available and is absorbent, so often used for pool decks and other pool areas. People have been using stone pavers for thousands and thousands of years. The most common types of pavers are flagstone or fieldstone. However, limestone pavers are strong and often used for edging, while travertine pavers retain their natural color, withstand weather, and seldom need cleaning.
