Paving stones are beautiful, durable and, when properly installed, they add value to your home. Paving stones are often called interlocking brick and they are used to build patios, paths, and are often used for borders between grass and gardens to aid in lawn mowing. Paving stones have been around for thousands of years and you can see them in many older cities throughout the world. From Greece to Mexico, England to Quebec, paving stones have been the long lasting classic choice of builders throughout the ages. Why are paving stones still popular today? The simple answer is that nothing has come close to offering the beauty of paving stones and nothing can outlast them.
Paving stones are a great investment
There is no question that a properly built paving stone patio or walkway is a great investment. A walkway that lasts a life time builds value into your home so you know it is money well spent. Many homeowners in Calgary will replace their cracking concrete driveways, walkways and patios more than once and they will end up spending far more than they would have on paving stones. Dealing with cracked concrete is a hassle and it can never be repaired properly so you are left with a poor looking landscape. Do yourself a favour and do it right the first time.

Choose your paving stone installer carefully
We cannot stress enough how important it is for you to choose a Calgary paving stone company who has demonstrated they know how to properly install paving stones. We have spent a lot of our time repairing other landscapers work and most of it involves improperly built patios and walkways. One of the most important aspects of paving stone installation is excavation. The soil needs to be removed until clay is reached. This can often mean you need to dig out a foot or more of soil which for an average size patio or walkway can translate to a dump truck full of soil to haul away. If you do not dig down to the clay level chances are your paving stones will end up a sunken mess in very short while. The reason for the sinking and shifting is primarily due to frost heaves, the freezing and thawing of the crushed gravel below the paving stones.
