What’s so Wonderful About Walkways?

One of the most effective ways is to invest hardscape design features like walkways

When most people think about landscape design, walkways aren’t typically the first thing that comes to mind. Usually, you can picture flourishing flowers and a grand garden. However, landscape design and hardscape design go hand in hand. Retaining walls, patios, water features, and other hardscape design elements work together to give a landscape structure, style, and definition. Walkways are no different. There are a lot of wonderful benefits when it comes to walkway construction, and today we’re going to share what they are. 

Curb Appeal

There are some features of a home that stand out right away. A well-designed walkway is one of these features. When a person approaches a home, they automatically feel more welcomed and invited when they see a walkway. The curb appeal that this hardscape adds to a home is undeniable.

Flexibility in Design

Permeable pavers come in a variety of styles and designs. Because there are so many paver shapes, sizes, and colors, your walkway can seamlessly blend into the architecture of your home. The goal of hardscape design is to add complementary elements to the exterior of your home. With permeable pavers, that is more than a possibility.

Walkway Construction Decreases Stress on Your Pavement

Concrete is sturdier than asphalt because its core element is cement. When you continuously walk on asphalt, it undergoes a lot of pressure. The constant foot traffic speeds up the appearance of cracks over time. By investing in walkway construction, you can reduce the amount of stress and strain on your pavement. 

Walkway Construction Adds Resale Value

We doubt that you’ll sell your house right away when you invest in hardscape design. You’ll enjoy marveling at the beauty of your new and improved home. However, if there ever comes the point in time, where you do sell your house, a concrete walkway is an excellent selling point! Homebuyers typically love homes that don’t require a lot of work. Permeable paver walkways add a warm and welcoming ambiance to a home, which, in turn, adds significant resale value.
