Frequently Asked Questions About Pavers
Q: What is the average cost to install a paver patio?
A: Installing a paver patio costs an average of $3,400 with a typical range of $2,400 to $7,000 for the average 280 square foot patio. For large or complex jobs that include additional prep work or artistic designs, you might pay $10,000 or more. Expect to pay anywhere from $10 to $20 per square foot.
Q: Is it cheaper to lay concrete or pavers?
A: While the initial cost of pouring concrete is cheaper than laying pavers, investing in pavers will save you money in the long run and add significant value to your property. Look at having a patio installed as an investment similar to a bathroom remodel. It will increase the value of your home and quality of your life. Just like you would for an interior job. Compare the quality of the installers before hiring a contractor.
Q: What is the difference between hardscaping and landscaping?
A: Hardscape is any of the non-living elements in your landscape design. These are the harder design elements in your space like concrete, rocks, bricks, pavers, stone, and wood. Hardscaping also includes man-made structures like patios and pergolas that are used specifically in your landscaping. Landscaping is all of the “soft,” or living, things in your design such as grass, plants, trees, and flowers.
