The basics of good outdoor living design
Bringing your backyard design dreams to life begins with making a few basic decisions based on what kinds of activities take place there and how each space will accommodate them. Whether you're building a walkway from your driveway to your front door or an intimate garden gazebo, you'll need to consider your personal likes and preferences and how they'll impact your design.
Complete your look with color
There's no mystery to figuring out the perfect hues for your new Belgard hardscape, just a bit of planning and consideration up front. The best advice when choosing Belgard paver colors is to select hues that work in harmony with your home environment. Pavers that are a few shades lighter than the color of your house won't compete for attention. Gray-toned pavers used with brick houses eliminate the urge many of us have to try to match everything. Brick-colored pavers add warmth to wood or stone houses. You can avoid monotony by combining two colors or by using pavers with blended colors.
Explore the possibilities of shapes and patterns
Belgard's Natural, Classic and Transitional paver styles allow your artistic flair to flourish. Here are a few helpful tips. For simple structures with straight lines and little ornamentation, pavers with geometric shapes installed in a simple pattern work nicely. For ornate Victorian-style houses, repeated curves of arched windows and doors can be echoed through the design of curved edges. For rectangular colonial styles, repeat the shape by using brick-shaped pavers.
