You started talking sometime back in December about all of the work that you know needs to be done for your home and that you’d get to those projects by summer. We all know how it goes. Spring rolls around and you still have the best of intentions, but you just can’t seem to get the ball rolling. Well, we’re a week into summer now and it’s time to start getting on those projects! A great place to start is your walkway. If you don’t have one, it can really help add to the curb appeal of your home. Updating a walkway might also be necessary to make your home look more cohesive. Once you’re ready to get started, there are a few things to consider. Let’s work on answering the big question: what material will work best for your home?
- Slate – If you’ve been a Maryland resident for a while, you know that there’s a lot of slate and shale around here. Slate makes a great walkway material because it’s impervious to most things that would cause it to deteriorate or change colors, such as water and sunlight. Slate comes in a wide range of grays, from light to almost black.
- Clay/Brick Pavers – If you like to occasionally change things up, pavers are for you. They’re also eco-friendly and fairly inexpensive. Interlocking pavers can be created in different sizes, colors, or designs, depending on the kind of look you want for your home. Pavers have been used for hundreds of years and are still a very popular choice amongst homeowners and contactors for their durability and ease of installation.
- Natural Stone – If you already have a natural look to your patio or home, natural stone can be a great addition to it. Natural stone comes in different colors, shapes, and sizes as well, and can be cut or ground down to work better with your walkway design. You can also incorporate the natural stone into your home in different ways to get a cohesive look for your landscaping, hardscaping, and home design.
