A large landscape is a wonderful asset for any Allentown, PA, home. It presents many opportunities to create outdoor areas of enjoyment and relaxation. If it’s simply one big open plot of lawn, however, the maintenance requirements could be quite high. One way to reduce the landscape maintenance needs of your lawn is with a paver patio.
When it comes to choosing a material to be used for your Wayne Township, PA, driveway, there are several options available. But let us look at two materials commonly considered: concrete pavers and asphalt. In at least one home you’ve rented or bought over the years, there is a likelihood that the driveway material was asphalt. After all, it’s been a longstanding construction material in suburban development. Through the use of pavers, however, the design of driveways has taken on a new life.
With growing ecological awareness amongst consumers and local regulations being put into place to ensure better stormwater management, permeable pavers are becoming an increasingly popular paver option for PA properties. They provide benefits that concrete, asphalt and other regular pavers lack, namely their ability to allow water to pass quickly and effectively through them into the ground beneath.
