Brick Pavers & Natural Stone
• Brick pavers or natural stone walkways provide an aesthetically pleasing appearance to a landscape project. The look is upscale with many color and design elements that enhance the landscape design. Brick pavers are an ideal choice for patios, sidewalks and driveways. They do not crack over time like concrete or asphalt, plus they are environmentally compatible. Brick paver sidewalks and driveways are very durable. In addition to being the best form of pavement for Minnesota, brick pavers are easy to shovel or plow in the winter.
