Choosing the Materials That Are Right for You

When you begin designing a new walkway with us, we’ll walk you through the choices you get to make. First, we’ll determine where the walkway will be and how wide it should be. The size will depend on its function. Standard widths are 36,” and your walkway should be no less than 18” wide.

Next, you’ll pick a material. Your choices will depend on your budget, style, location, and functionality.

We can offer:

Clay brick pavers provide an elegant look to any home or business. They’re durable and flexible, making them less sensitive to foot traffic and environmental factors. Maintenance and repairs are easy: just pop out the individual brick and pop it back in when you’re done.

Traditional bricks consist of red-, orange-, or brown-hued clay. They can add color to your yard or complement your home’s entry. They’re also slip-resistant, which makes them a perfect option for around a pool or other areas that get wet.

Gravel is an inexpensive option, and it’s easy to install. You can choose from various stones and decide the size and color that works best for your outdoor space. It’s durable and long-lasting because it won’t crack or suffer damage from bad weather.

Gravel does require regular maintenance. You should fill in any holes that develop and move the stones around so that they’re level.

Natural stone is an excellent choice if you’re looking for material with a unique design, shape, and color. Variations in each stone provide your own look that your neighbors won’t have. You can choose a color that complements the décor in your outdoor space or the exterior wall of the building.

Natural stone adds value to any property. If you work with us to find the right design, you might increase the resale price of your home. It adds a crisp, clean sophistication that appeals to buyers. Some natural stones, such as limestone, are extremely durable. They can also be slip-resistant, so you and your guests won’t get hurt after a spill or rain.

Poured concrete is one of our most popular walkway choices. It’s flat, durable, and comes in a variety of textures and colors. If installed correctly, which Daybreaker Landscapes can certainly do, it can last for years without sustaining damage or requiring replacement.

Poured concrete is easier to install than other materials because it conforms to turns or bends on the property. It’s also cost-effective, making it perfect for those looking to save money on a brand new or updated walkway. Since it’s low-maintenance, you’ll even save money while keeping it in pristine condition.

Interlocking concrete pavers offer a range of options in color, size, pattern, style, thickness, and texture. You can create a uniform look or choose a dynamic combination. Their interlocking features make installation and repair a breeze. If you need to replace a paver, you can easily pop it out of the walkway.

Concrete pavers can provide the same elegant look as natural stone, but at a more attractive price. Depending on how much foot traffic your walkway sees, you may only need to seal it once a year to maintain its look.

How to Prepare for the Installation of Your New Walkway

Besides choosing the perfect material for your walkway, we’ll help you prepare for your walkway installation during its design. Here are some of the steps along the way:

  1. Location: Pick the right area to install the walkway. You can choose the area between your driveway and front door, a path through your gardens, or a place where people can walk to the pool. Make sure there’s enough room for the size you want. We’ll help make sure it’s both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
  2. Budget: Set aside an amount of money that works for your budget. It’s a good idea to account for any property management that may arise during your project, like discovering hidden groundworks.
  3. Construction: Consider whether there are any construction projects on your property or other structures. Plan the final look of your walkway to match your finished project in color and style, so it doesn’t look out of place.
  4. Nearby structures: Anything near the walkway, such as a swimming pool, can impact the type of material you choose. If you know it’s going to get wet, choose a slip-resistant material. If you expect to use the walkway every day, you may want something extra durable.
  5. Style: Think about how you want your walkway to look in front of your home or around your outdoor living space. Design experts recommend that you prioritize your space’s flow. If your walkway leads to an outdoor dining area, you’ll want it to complement your furniture. If it connects your driveway and front porch, pay attention to your home’s colors and style.
  6. Accessories: Walkways don’t have to stand alone. You can add accessories to add to their appeal. Lighting can be both beautiful and a safety feature. Adding a built-in flower bed can bring pops of color to a neutral material.
  7. Time: Don’t forget to schedule your installation when it’s convenient for you! If you’re opening a business and need the project completed by a specific date, make sure to notify us of your deadline.

Advantages of Adding a Walkway to Your Residential or Commercial Property

Hardscaping can make an outdoor space more desirable to buyers and more enjoyable for its users. You may be more inclined to buy a steak to grill if you feel comfortable walking to it.

At Daybreaker Landscapes, we have years of experience building beautiful, functional walkways for our customers. Here are some advantages of our hardscapes:

  • Walkways add value. You’ll instantly increase the value of your home if you use the right materials. You can also enjoy your new hardscape until it’s time to move on to bigger and better things.
  • Safety is important. When your outdoor space doesn’t have a walkway, debris, or holes in the lawn can cause injuries. A walkway provides a stable and even surface for you and your family.
  • Maximize your fun. During the warm summer months, you probably enjoy spending your time outside in the sun. Having a walkway will make your outdoor spaces more appealing. With a clear path to your pool, dining area, or entertainment center, your investment will be much more enjoyable.
  • Clear convenience. A walkway is more welcoming to guests. When someone arrives at your home, they’ll know exactly where to go to get to your front door or backyard. They won’t have to step over flower beds or walk on your perfectly manicured lawn.
  • Curb appeal. Hardscaping is one of the first things people notice when they arrive at your property. Whether it’s near your home or business, your Daybreaker Landscapes walkway will invite the kind of attention you want.
