Highlight a feature
Pavers can turn an onlooker’s attention to a focal point in the landscape. A focal point can be anything from a specially designed sculpture, to a birdbath, to a water fountain. When matched with proper lighting, such elements will most likely stand out during the evening.
Act as walkways
Pavers can serve as walkways not just to different sections of the landscape, like a park bench beneath a willow tree in a wooded area; they can also function as paths to the driveway, outdoor kitchen, gazebo, or even the front porch. Pavers that receive heavy traffic, like the ones that lead in front of the home, should have layers of gravel and sand as base.
