    Paving basics

    Published on 30 January 2019, Wednesday, 5:53 AM

    If you are embarking on a garden landscaping project this spring, why not amp it up a level and create a paved courtyard area?

    Rejuvenating your outdoor area not only adds to the monetary value of your property, but it is bound to impress your guests next time you invite them over for some outdoor entertaining.

    There are hundreds of different pavers available on the market, so shop around and take into account your garden and outdoor furniture when making a decision.

    Terracotta paving is timeless, goes with almost anything and has a natural look that is perfect for the backyard.

    If you need to clear an area for your paving, you may find hiring an excavator from your local Kennards Hire branch helpful.

    Before laying down pavers, it is vital that you are working with a level surface - use a professional level to ensure this is accurate.

    Whether you want your pavers in a pattern or just in a large area, you will want to lay down concrete to ensure a solid foundation for your courtyard.

    If your pavers are spaced from one another in different formations, fill in between with soil to finish your courtyard. If you want to really impress guests, why not plant some herbs down too!
