Will there be ants under or weeds growing through paving stone?

  • A properly installed hardscape project will be ant & weed free. We install high quality polymeric sand that is swept into the paving stone joints and vibrated to ensure the whole depth of the paver joint is full of sand. The excess is then swept off and the paving stone surface. The paving stone is then wet down to activate the polymer in the sand which causes it to harden. This stops ants from entering the pavers as well as preventing weeds from coming through paver joints

Why choose I paving stones over poured concrete?

  • Interlocking concrete pavement is a flexible paving surface which allows for some movement in the paving surface. In Edmonton's freeze-thaw climate, this is an advantage as it moves with the surrounding environment.

  • Concrete is a ridged paving surface which does not allow for any movement, which can to cracking.

  •  Paving stone can be easily spot repaired. If a section has sunk or lifted, the section can be removed, base material can compacted, releveled and removed paving stone reinstalled. This comes at a lesser cost to a homeowner vs re-pouring concrete.
