Your homes entrance, pool deck or patio area will leave a lasting visual impression on your familyneighbors, and friends. Hardscaping can improve the aesthetics of your home as well as add a functional living space at a fraction of the cost of building an addition to on you home. 


While pavers and concrete seem simple enough, the decision as to which one to choose is not always cut and dry. Below, we introduce you to the positive and negative of both to help you decide which one would be better for your home.

Pavers tend to be more visually appealing than concrete slabs because you can manipulate the pavers and create designs, and they come in a variety of colors. While concrete is not as plentiful when it comes to designs and colorsyou can choose stamped or decorative concrete, which provides a beautiful appearance.


Poured concrete can have color added to it, but that color generally fades quickly and may not look as nice as it once did. If you have color added to your concreteit will need to be reapplied every couple of years.
