I was going through a magazine as I sat in the doctor’s office this morning. I saw the most beautiful patios with gorgeous paving stone. The colors and designs were amazing. I think my favorite photo of the bunch was one showing a terracotta colored stone in an intricate star pattern. Each stone interlocked perfectly to form a seven pointed star or almost a flower design. It was rimmed with a contrasting deep chocolate color that gave the whole design a richness and made it look very expensive.
I’d love to have a patio like that at my house. I wonder how hard it would be to install patio pavers by myself. I bet I could save a bunch of money if I cut out the cost of labor and just paid for the materials. However, I’m not an expert at this kind of design, so I would probably be better off hiring a professional company to come out and do it for me. Then I would get to enjoy it all and not hurt myself in the process from lugging the stones around.
I wouldn’t stop with just paving my patio though. I would also have my drive way paved in a beautiful matching stone. I might as well go all out and have the whole front redone if I’m going to do it. I bet I could get that large star flower done on the patio and then maybe smaller versions of it as you drive up the drive way. Or, maybe doing just the opposite design would look better. I’d have to see a mock up or digital rendering of what the entire project would look like before I committed either way. I’m sure some companies provide a service like to help their customers visualize their dreams.
