When it comes to options of building products for your outdoor living spaces, there are several available to fit your budget, your style and goals. There is a lot of controversy out there about what Hardscaping product is best for your patio, and while we would be biased in saying pavers are the best choice, the fact is, the statistics and benefits speak (loudly) for themselves.
The chart below is a great comparison of the most-popular Hardscaping materials on the market today. From asphalt to stamped concrete to concrete pavers, it shows the good, the bad and the ugly of each item you can use to recreate the look and feel of your yard.

That said, none of the other Hardscaping options quite compare to concrete pavers for appearance, sustainability, durability or value. And when you work with EP Henry to build your patio, driveway, walkway or pool deck, you get the added benefit of our Lifetime Warranty on the structural integrity of our pavers and wall systems for residential use as well as a 3-year installation warranty, when you work with an EP Henry Authorized Hardscaping Contractor®, referred through our Project Services department.
Concrete Pavers and Sustainability
Sustainability is a critical factor behind selecting concrete pavers over any other Hardscaping material. As you can see above, the durability and ease in maintenance for our pavers speak to that point, but the options get even better.
To reduce the negative effects of stormwater runoff, permeable pavers can be used in just about every landscape design application you can imagine from driveways and walkways, to patios and pool decks. These pavers are designed as part of a system that allows water to drain through the paved area into the ground, preventing dirty stormwater from contaminating our waterways
Still unconvinced? Check out the video below that will explain why concrete pavers are the best answer for your project:
Ultimately, it’s getting an idea of how concrete pavers will create the unique and functional outdoor living spaces in your yard that will be the deciding factor as you plan your new landscape design.
