Understanding Paving Problems

When we started working on finishing our house, I realized we weren't going to be able to take care of the paving on our own. Instead of trying to haul in concrete and hope for the best, I hired a professional paving contractor to come out and help. They were incredible to work with. They listened carefully to our requests, and then they started laying the concrete and leveling the surface. Within a few hours, we had a driveway and front sidewalk that looked incredible. This blog is all about the benefits of working with paving contractors, and understanding the problems you might come up against if you do things on your own.

How To Create A Great Playscape At Your Country Home


Did you move to the country so your children could be away from the hustle and bustle of the suburbs? What a great thing to do for your kids! Having the great outdoors right outside the door of your home means that your children can have adventures as they experience the wonders of nature. If you want to enhance the area by creating a playscape at your country home, here are some ideas for you.

Decide on the area you want to use for the playscape and visually divide it into sections. 

A Paved Area - One area of the playscape would be for things like playing ball, roller skating and other games that require a hard surface on which to play. Asphalt paving would be the perfect material for this area. It is very affordable and will withstand the elements well. In addition, it will last for a very long time. The upkeep will be easy, too. Just give the kids brooms and a water hose and they'll do the job for you. If repairs are needed over the years, asphalt paving repair is easy to do and the job can be accomplished in a short time.

A Picnic Area - While you're at it, add asphalt paving to a smaller area that will serve as a place for your children to have meals outdoors. Give that area a fun shape. A clover, a flower shape, or even the shape of the state in which you reside would all be good choices. Extend the area enough that the children can also use sidewalk chalk to do artwork on the asphalt paving. Again, just hose it off when it needs cleaning.

A Bike Trail - If you have plenty of acreage, you'll truly be a hero if you design a bike trail on your property. Plot your design with curves, hills and valleys in mind, just to add some interest to the ride. Of course, you could just clear a path in the brush. However, that would mean that it would be muddy when it rains and dusty at other times. Instead of leaving it natural, use asphalt to pave the bike path for a smooth ride.

Don't forget to set room aside for a storage shed and build it on asphalt paving, too. Store balls, bicycles, horse shoes and other play equipment in the storage shed so that it will always be available for play time.
