Hide Eyesores on your Commercial Property

There are some structures on a commercial property that are required for the day-to-day operation. Things like recycling bins, garbage cans, dumpsters, air conditioning units, gas meters, and sheds. Most of the times, these structures are used by the maintenance crew or by the super so they need to be accessible, but they create an eyesore on your commercial property. With DeCarlo Landscape Design, we can help to cover up those eyesores by utilizing trees, shrubs and other tricks to hide them! Read more

DIY Installation of Concrete Pavers

As fall rolls in, homeowners throughout Bergen county are rushing to complete their fall projects in and around their home. When rushed to complete a project such as installing pavers, it is inevitable that mistakes will be made, corners will be cut and what you’re left with will be is a poorly-installed project. This year we’re seeing a lot of people installing pavers the DIY way, whether for a walkway, fire pit or patio and this can spell disaster.

With many years in paver installation for walkways, driveways, patios etc., we know that experience really makes a difference. Doing a DIY project in and around the home is absolutely respected and actually can help homeowners build skills and knowledge themselves. However, when there are a lot of variables with a project, it can make sense to bring in a professional to do the job the right way the first time.

Here are the top three issues that we see when we take on a client who attempted to install pavers themselves:

  1. Not accounting for water drainage. It is important for you to ensure that there is proper drainage for the pavers, otherwise, pooling or puddling on the surface can occur.
  2. Using inadequate materials. The proper sand or filler is necessary for and around the pavers. Using just any old fill will not do the job and leaves an unfinished look.
  3. Improper Placement. Placing pavers on a slope can be done, but when not taking the time to level your soil or plan out the slope design, you may be left with a less than attractive paver walkway.

Using a contractor for paver installation is the best choice. From installation of patios, driveways, fire pits, and walkways, using a company with experience will ensure that the job is done the right way the first time. Don’t waste your time and money installing a paver patio without experience, chances are, you’ll end up paying to do it all over again or fix a mistake in the long run.
