Paving has become an important element of landscaping or—more specifically—hardscaping. By installing pavers on outdoor terrain, the ground will be stronger and more durable. It will be more resistant to abuses and heavy traffic. This is the reason why only paved ground is suitable for driveway and walkway. When the weather goes bad, paved terrain will not become muddy and slippery. Pavers also make outdoor space appear neater and more appealing. Many homeowners decorate their patio with pavers to make it more enjoyable and to improve the value of their home. Pavers give many advantages. That’s why many people want them.
When choosing the right type of pavers for outdoor spaces, material often becomes the biggest issue to consider. Pavers may be made from fired clay, concrete or stones. A relatively new addition to the market is rubber paver. Compared to their harder and more solid counterparts, rubber pavers offer several features that give them an edge. Pavers that are made from rubber are considered environmentally friendly because they are derived from recycled materials. Unused tires are often reused and recycled for paving purpose. The strength and durability of automobile tires are preserved when they are transformed into pavers. Rubber pavers are thus not less strong and durable than concrete or stone ones.
Rubber pavers are also advantageous because they are soft, resilient and slip-resistant. Standing or walking too long on concrete pavers can be tiring and you will mostly be injured when you fall on them. Rubber pavers are more superior in such scenario as they tend to soothe your feet with their soft and flexible surface and less likely to cause injury when you fall on them. Their slip-resistant feature also makes them a good choice for patio, pool area and any other outdoor spaces where wetness is commonplace.
