NJ based Magnolia Home Remodeling Group strongly believes that exterior hard scape-paver patios and walkways are a great way to increase your home’s exterior design and functionality and add unique architectural elements to your home’s design. However, it is important to keep in mind that you should invest the same level of effort and care into these designs as any landscaping design if you want your vision to be fully realized. That is why our experienced NJ deck contractors at Magnolia Home Remodeling Group have compiled the following info to help make the process as smooth as possible.
Before You Begin
Before you get started on building your exterior hard scape-paver patios and walkways, it os important to have a plan ready. Make sure you sketch your yard’s boundaries and take note of major features such as trees, driveways, and your yard’s perimeter. Also take note of the areas that people are most likely to walk and ensure that you know the location of all windows and doors to give your plan a logical design.
Know Your Strengths
One of the biggest determinants in the success of your patio and walkway designs is your ability to work with the architecture of your home. The planning mentioned above will help you immensely during this step and ensure that you effectively incorporate your home’s accents, angles, and other unique characteristics into your design. For example, try extending the visual lines from your home’s doors, windows and corners to create shapes that blend in and work in harmony with the design of your patio and walkway architecture.
Much like the architecture of your home, the colors that you choose should work in harmony with the environment of your home and yard. A good rule of thumb is to use pavers that are a few shades lighter than the colors of your home to ensure that there is no competition for attention. You can also combine two colors or use pavers with blended colors if you want something that draws a bit more attention without going overboard. Of course, our mason contractors can give you tips and suggestions to help you get the best color scheme for your design.
