When it comes to patio construction in your Kansas City landscaping project, you have several options, all of which are useful for different purposes. You should know exactly what you are doing before you begin for the best results.
- Brick Pavers measuring 2 1/4-inch thick by 3 3/4-inch wide by 7 1/2-inch long are better than regular clay bricks. They are more durable, and have less chance of cracking. A solid border is essential to avoid pavers separating over time, and can be achieved using a concrete perimeter or landscaping timbers.
- Stone Patios can be made of a huge variety of flat stones ranging from slate to limestone. It’s important to consider foot traffic and climate to ensure longevity. Stones are set in the same way as bathroom tile, although larger stones may require two people to handle.
- Gravel Crushed stone is one of the easiest methods of creating a patio. If you can find locally sourced stone, you will save greatly on transportation costs and lower your carbon footprint.
