Curb appeal. We hear this phrase repeatedly on do-it-yourself TV channels, particularly with shows about remodeling homes so that they will sell quickly. But, what exactly is curb appeal? Basically, it is the positive first impression your home makes to visitors or prospective buyers. Your home will make a first impression whether you like it or not. You can ensure it is a positive first impression by doing several key things. First, maintain your lawn by mowing and edging regularly and pulling weeds. Second, plant beautiful shrubbery and brightly colored flowers. Flowers go a long way toward adding curb appeal to your home. After all, who does not like flowers? Something that will go even further, however, is chiseled pavers. Chiseled pavers are the perfect addition to your landscape if you want your home to have curb appeal.
What Do I Do With The Chiseled Pavers?
Chiseled pavers are very versatile and can be added to your landscape in a variety of ways. Those made from natural stone, such as travertine, are especially beautiful, strong, and sturdy and, thus, are the recommended chiseled pavers. So, what can you do with the chiseled pavers? Create a beautiful walkway to your front door. Use them as a pretty, decorative border for your flower beds. You can even stack them to create a beautiful raised bed. You can also use them to pave your patio or pool deck for a stunning, modern look. Lay them straight or create an exquisite, intricate design. Either way, they will be beautiful.
Chiseled pavers made from travertine are even strong enough to pave your driveway. If they are installed correctly with a strong base, they can actually support more weight than brick pavers or man-made concrete pavers. Because they are natural stone, the color will not fade from exposure to the sun. Your travertine chiseled pavers will last forever! Not only will they add a tremendous amount of curb appeal to your home, but they will increase your property value, as well.
How Do I Care For My Chiseled Pavers?
Chiseled pavers require very little maintenance or care. Of course, there are some things you can do to enhance their beauty, as well as increase their longevity. To clean them, simply sweep them and then wash them with a pressure cleaner.
Buy a few extra pavers than you actually need and store them somewhere, like your garage, basement, or attic. Sometimes pavers crack, and it is often cheaper to replace the paver than to try to fix the crack. If you do choose to fix cracks rather than replace the pavers, wait until the crack is large and noticeable.
