A paver structure is one of the most functional aspects of any landscape. Our team has the expertise to design and build your dream paver patio, walkway or driveway.
If you are looking to create a serene space to gather in the evenings, an attractive pathway connecting your landscape features, or a durable driveway surface to handle the elements, you have come to the right place! Our landscape crews are well-versed in all things paver installation. One of the best aspects of pavers is that no single paver structure is the same! The design, layout and shape of your patio, walkway or driveway is completely individualized to your specific desires and needs. Whether the intended use for your patio is a quiet space to gather with family to enjoy bonfires in a custom fire pit, or drastically increase the curb appeal of your outdoor shopping center, we offer a wide range of paver styles with endless amounts of color choices. Let us help you maximize the use of your outdoor space by building a paver structure that fits your budget, lifestyle and most importantly – built to withstand the Minnesota weather to provide decades of use.
1. Site Assessment and Design – The opening phase to any landscaping project is meeting with a member of our team to discuss your project and take measurements of the proposed work location. Then we take your ideas and requests for colors, styles, and patterns to create the ideal design for your paver structure. We also include other landscaping aspects around your patio, such as mulch, plantings, etc.
2. Excavation and Base Preparation – After agreements are signed and deposits are made, we place your project onto our schedule. On the arrival day, our crew gets to work beginning with excavation of the area where your paver structure will be constructed. It is dug deep enough to permit adequate base material, bedding sand, and the pavers, with the paver surface being flush with the surrounding area of turf or landscaping.
3. Laying and Cutting Pavers – After the base is compacted and prepared thoroughly, our crew begins laying pavers in the specified pattern to achieve the appearance you desire. Once all the pavers have been laid out to fill the dimensions for your structure, we use a concrete saw to cut pavers that are near the perimeter as needed to fit within your design. We then install snap edging along the perimeter to help hold the structure together.
4. Finishing Work and Final Walk Through – Once the final cuts are completed, we sweep polymeric joint sand into the spaces between the pavers. Then lightly blow off the surface with a backpack blower to push the remaining polymeric sand into the joints. Then mist the entire paver structure with water, allowing it to dry completely and follow up one more application of water. While that dries, our crew completes the finishing work – landscaping surrounding your patio, turf repairs and site clean up. Within 24-48 hours, your new patio, walkway or driveway is ready for use!
