Tips for Attractive and Successful Pavers Cumming , GA
paver patio

Pavers can provide an instant upgrade to your backyard. By creating a patio with pavers, you’ll gain an attractive, durable and easily maintained space that is perfect for entertaining or extending your family gathering space. Pavers are highly versatile and easy to install too. However, just like any home improvement project, you’ll want to be prepared. Whether you are hiring a professional or doing it yourself, keep the following tips in mind when placing your patio pavers:

Know Your Vision
The first step is to choose the correct type and amount of pavers that meet your overall vision and goals for your patio project. Pavers come in a wide range of sizes, colors, shapes and textures. Know your vision and do your research before you make your selection.

Consider Ordering Extra
When it comes to ordering your pavers, don’t underestimate the quantity. You may need more cut pieces to fit your desired space or create the look you desire. Since pavers are so heavy, it is always better to have them ordered, delivered and ready at the beginning of your project.

Lay a Good Foundation
Your patio pavers will need an appropriate depth into your dirt as well as a solid base to prevent weeds growing through the cracks, shifting stones and poor drainage. Pavers do well with a layer of woven fabric, crushed stone/aggregate and concrete sand as a secure and successful foundation.

Give Your Patio an Edge
It is a good idea to have an edge restraint around the perimeter of your backyard pavers to keep them from shifting. This edge can be created with metal, plastic or aluminum.

Fill in the Cracks
Once your pavers are in installed where you want them, it will be time to seal the cracks between the stones using a shallow layer of concrete sand.

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
