Comparing Low-Maintenance Paving Options

Information Offered by a Professional Paving Contractor

Truth to be told, walkways and driveways don’t necessarily have to be paved. However, the care that a dirt path requires can be overwhelming. Luckily, there are many low-maintenance hard-surface paving options available. As a matter of fact, there are so many that choosing one can challenging. As an experienced¬†paving contractor, I’ve worked with all paving materials out there. Here is what I’ve concluded.


Asphalts is a broadly used paving material. It’s used for parking lots, driveways, walkways, and even roads. At the moment, asphalt is the least expensive paving material out there. However, it also comes with some disadvantages. One of them is the lack of appearance. Compared with other paving materials such as stones and pavers, asphalt is perhaps the least attractive one. Its dull black color simply does not make for a beautiful walkway.

Paving stones

If you’re looking for a nice-looking, low-maintenance paving option, then you should consider pavers. They are made of concrete, which means that they are very durable. Additionally, since you can find all sorts of shapes and sizes of pavers, you can easily create an unique and extremely attractive walkway. The only problem is the price. Pavers are more expensive than concrete or asphalt applications; however, installed right they can last a lifetime. The other good thing about pavers is that they can be replaced independently. So, if one of the bricks gets damaged, you can quickly replace it without having to disturb the rest of the paving structure.


Finishing your driveway in stamped and colored concrete has become increasingly popular. You can choose whatever type of finish you like, and add any color you may think of. The result is a durable, amazingly good looking, and fairly low-maintenance driveway.
