A good landscaper will distinguish himself with paver craftsmanship. He will provide his client with impeccable and distinguished patterns. The same goes for stairways and retaining walls. The respect of all installation standards is mandatory to insure proper sustainability of the project. Always keeps in mind, that concrete pavers act as a cladding over a compacted aggregate foundation. It’s the quality of the foundation that makes the quality of the whole work. Polymeric sand and poly-urethane glue insures that product stays in place permanently.
Concrete products like slabs, pavers or blocks will adapt to any design. They can either be straight lines or in all sorts of curves. The example below shows a curved walkway, that was made for one of our clients in Magog in the spring of 2013.
Borders and pavers add style to a common asphalt entrance. Both products can be a match made in heaven, like the picture below. A simple, yet distinguished, concept that was installed in Sherbrooke. Please note that we do not provide asphalt laying; it was done by another contractor.
Concrete blocks come in a wide variety of colors that almost never fade, since they’re made of hi-density concrete, almost as hard as rock. That way they can be recuperated and put back into place even after many years of use. Here’s an example below.
The landing here was originally built in the mid-eighties. It needed to be rebuilt as years of constant frost and thaw had taken its tole on it. Now it has been rebuilt from it’s original blocks!
Prefabricated concrete products allow the construction of structures that have a more uniform surface than natural stone. Like natural stones, they will not deteriorate from humidity or UV rays. Therefore they are well suited for a wide range of applications which make them a sought after product of the landscaping industry.
More economical than pavers, concrete slabs now comes in a wide variety of style and color. Making them a new trend in the industry. These slabs are not made of hi-density concrete meaning they will not be as durable as pavers. They still offer a great look, but its all comes down to price versus quality.
When looking for a driveway, consider purchasing hi-density pavers as the only option, as slabs do not offer proper structural qualities. Driveways made of pavers will cost more than regular asphalt but they will add a greater value to your property.
