When you pull up to the the Hebert residence, one of the first things you notice is the large set of concrete steps leading up to their side entry, with a walkway leading only part way to the patio. When you take the walkway (or grass) to the back patio...you discover what used to be a beautiful patio years ago but now needs a little face lift.
There are many reasons that paver contractors, like us here at Bahler Brothers, dig up so much ground for our customer’s patios. The biggest reason is that in order for a paver patio to last, it must have a good base. The base must be free of biodegradable matter such as roots and other fill matter.
Patio repairs are less complicated with a paver patio.
Have you ever had to make repairs under a patio or walkway? There are many utilities and other underground obstructions that can affect either one:

"The professionalism and thoroughness with which our job was done was most impressive beginning with the sales/marketing and design team to the workers on site."
The first time this customer came into our design center for an appointment we knew we were going to have a blast. We clicked right away and the process began. They wanted to redo not only their front yard but their back yard too. Through many many questions from an engineer to lauging at his many jokes, the design came together beautifully! After many appointments and picking out the perfect pavers, the plans were set and ready to go!
This customer came to us and informed us that they were sick of their deck and it was all torn out. They needed a raised paver patio. Of course we thought that was a great idea and we started designing and planning right away. When the plans were complete, we had a raised patio using Techo-Bloc's Blu 60. Multiple sets of Rosetta steps leading to the pool, a waterfall, and low voltage landscape lighting.
This paver patio installation was simple but brought much more character to the customer's front porch area. They use their front porch a lot, but it wasn't big enough. They also wanted to include an area "just for mom", have steps stepping down the hill leading to the pool area, and have a small path through the herb garden to access the hose faucet. Some landscape lighting was also added. Here is what we came up with, resulting in a very satisfied customer!
Over the last 20 years we have seen major advancements in permeable pavements. The first permeable paver was introduced here in North America in 1989.
