Paver Design and Planning: Tips and Tricks from Naples FL Experts

Despite the upheaval it caused, the pandemic did help trigger a boom in home buying. 2021 saw the sale of more than 6 million homes, and millions more will be sold in 2023. When many people buy a home, it’s with a vision of creating a particular lifestyle.

For some, that means very standard renovations. People often opt for kitchen or bathroom renovations. Once people get the inside the way they want, they start thinking about outdoor living options, such as patios.

With that comes questions about paver design options. If you’re considering putting in pavers, keep reading for some essential paver design tips and tricks to remember.

Start with the Overall Vision

Are you considering very restricted paver patios or looking to connect outdoor living spaces? Did you see some paver pool decks and want one for your place? How much area will you cover?

Answering these questions not only makes you think about your project, but it may also inform choices about what kind of pavers you pick. Those tiny pavers might look great, but large ones may prove much more practical if you cover a lot of square footage.

Mirrored Styles

It’s very tempting to pick a stone for the paver material based on how much you like the look. That’s a good approach, but it may create some style dissonance between your home’s interior and exterior.

Give some thought to the materials you use inside your home. For example, if you used travertine tiles inside, consider using travertine pavers outside. It can help create a cohesive style inside and out.

Consider the Practical

You should always give at least some thought to the practical. Does it rain a lot where you are? If so, very smooth pavers might create a slip hazard during wet weather.

Does anyone in your home have poor mobility? If so, then extra bumpy pavers might create a trip hazard.

It’s essential to pick pavers that look good but don’t create unnecessary safety issues.

Get Help

Not everyone excels at creating a creative vision for their home’s indoor or outdoor spaces. After all, if everyone were good at those things, there wouldn’t be jobs like interior designers and home decorators.

If that kind of creative work isn’t in your wheelhouse, look for help. There are professional hardscaping services that specialize in this exact kind of work. They can help guide your choices, from material choices to what design will look good in your backyard.

Paver Design and You

Optimizing an outdoor living experience is often done from the literal ground up. The pavers you use and the paver design you choose set the tone for the whole experience.

When making your choices, start with the big picture. Consider whether you can carry your interior design choices outside. Give some thought to the practicalities.

If all else fails, get help from a pro.

Why Homeowners Love Pure Hardscapes

Our project involved a complete removal, expansion and replacement of pool and lenai pavers as well as a new screen cage. Coordination of the screen and paver contractors requires a lot of forethought to schedules, weather and product availability. Mid-project, we were faced with Hurricane Ian and county permitting delays. Despite these outside glitches, Pure Hardscapes got the job done. The owner, Chance, was in constant contact with us for scheduling and product availability from Italy. The project manager, David, would listen to our comments and implement changes where needed. David's work ethic is admirable. The office manager, Nicole, coordinated the efforts of the field crew with the cage company and was always very responsive. After completion of the paver installation, the cage installers cracked one of the porcelain pavers. Nicole was able to have David return to the job site within 2 hours and replace the cracked paver, resulting in no time loss for the cage installers. Before, during and after the project, the crew at Pure Hardscapes took a personal interest in our needs and wants. I would not hesitate to recommend Pure Hardscapes to others.George Christofely

I wish Chance would run other businesses as well because I would hire him in a heartbeat. Communication was excellent and the price was the best from all 3 companies quoted. We had a couple last minute additions and he had no problem accommodating our request. He runs his company very professionally with modern tools like online contract signing and payment which makes it very convenient. But he also has an old school touch. We've received a couple hand written cards and follow up calls from him which really shows the kind of business he runs. See the photos, the work speaks for itself.

I moved to Naples in April 2021and purchased a home that I wanted to make some changes to. I called many contractors and companies to try to get estimates with, and no one ever returned my calls. The only one who personally reached out to me was Chane , the owner of Hardscapes! I kept getting excuses such as covid and everyone is very busy. I find it disrespectful when you reach out to someone and finally get an appointment for them to come to your home to give you an estimate to only be stood up! This unfortunately happened on more than one occasion.When you deal with Chance and his company they are punctual, respectful, and they always return calls and emails. I wish everyone I had to deal with to get something done was as professional and kind as Chance is. I will continue to refer him to my friends and anyone I hear that is looking to get any kind of hard scape done to their home. Dealing with him and his company is a pleasure!Amanda McDonald Naples Fl
