Brick pavers are not just a good material for constructing sidewalks, patios and driveways. There are a variety of applications that you can use brick pavers for, on your Huntington WoodsÂ property. One of these applications is constructing retaining walls to create dimension in your landscape, stabilize a slope or create an attractive garden. As you are considering materials to update your landscape, consider these benefits of using brick pavers for retaining walls.
Easy to Install
Believe it or not, but it is much simpler to install a brick paver wall than a concrete wall. Because brick pavers are made to stack snugly on each other, there isnâ€™t a need to use mortar or use forms to hold the wall together. The ease of installation also means that a simple wall can be completely installed by one person. There isnâ€™t a need for a crew of people to complete the work, like is necessary for installing concrete. Also, because pavers stack neatly and securely on each other and do not require mortar to hold them together, it takes less time for your wall to be functional. There is no need to wait for mortar to dry.
Brick retaining walls are incredibly durable. They are able to withstand heavy weights and are capable of holding up a variety of landscape structures including patios and planting beds. Unlike solid concrete walls, walls constructed from pavers have the ability to shift and move without compromising the stability of the wall. They will not crack, and any separation between the bricks can easily be repaired, by just removing and resetting a few bricks.
Brick pavers come in a variety of shapes, colors and textures. This variety means that you can create landscape structures that fit in with your existing features, match or contrast the exterior colors of your home, or create a visual statement. Because brick pavers come in a variety of colors, you donâ€™t have to stick with a single color for your landscape features. Consider two colors, one as a border and the other as a filler.
While it may take a little longer to set each block of a structure built with pavers, the flexibility of design that comes with the single block approach is worth the time. The availability of a variety of shapes and sizes helps with design flexibility. You can build a wall in just about any shape and just about any space when using brick pavers. Brick pavers can be easily cut, and set to fit in the tightest of spaces.
Depending on the kind of brick that you select and the size of your project, the initial cost to install a paver retaining wall may be slightly more than using concrete. However, because paver walls are so durable, you will save money in the long run, because they do not crack or require complete replacement to fix problems. If they are maintained well, paver walls can last many years without problems or need for repair.
