Concrete Slabs Vs. Pavers: How To Decide Which Is Best for Your Project
When you want to spruce up your driveway, backyard paths, or garden paths, you might want to think twice about using concrete slabs. Although they can be cheaper to install, they have some down sides that should be considered. Pavers could be a much better option for your landscaping. Here is what you should consider when making your decision.
Maintenance over time
Concrete is pretty durable, but it does have some drawbacks. Larger concrete slabs don’t have the ability to shift and move with the earth. With each passing season, each temperature change, each weather event, the earth beneath and around that concrete changes ever so slightly. Over time, that means the concrete can crack and break.
If you get concrete pavers instead, they are going to be much smaller and fit together in such a way that they can move with the ground instead of cracking.
