Brick paver patios are a great alternative to concrete or asphalt surfaces for your outdoor living areas. Pavers allow you to create a very unique look to your landscape with a myriad of colors, shapes and patterns to choose from.
If you’re looking for a brick paver patio to add to your Minneapolis home, you should consider any brick or natural stone that is currently on your home’s exterior as siding or an existing paved area . We can match, or find a look that compliments your home with your new patio, walkway or driveway.
Some Minneapolis homeowners may want a small natural flagstone patio in the front yard to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the morning before the start of a busy day. Others may want a large paver patio in the backyard to entertain family, neighbors and friends. Whatever your need, there is a patio that is right for your home and enjoyment.
Several things to consider as the patio or walkway are being built is to make sure the base of any paved area is properly prepared so that it will not settle, tip or separate over the course of time. Make sure that a proper grade with the pavers is away from the home’s foundation walls so water does not drain back into the basement or onto a unwanted surfaces.
A new sand is available that is used to lock the brick pavers together. It also prevents weeds and ants from coming up between the brick pavers. This sand works well and is worth the extra cost involved to use it. The last thing you want is to have grass or weeds growing up inside your newly paved surface
