Pave Your Way to Paradise

Paul and Melinda Austin of Azle, TX love the new state-of-the-art Optimum pool they had installed in their Texas-sized backyard, but they knew they needed something more to make it the oasis they envisioned. Check out this segment of Lifetime® Network’s Designing Spaces™ Show to see how they PAVE their way to Paradise!

Jason Osgood of NPT Hardscapes showed Paul and Melinda how segmental decking was perfect for a yard like theirs. Since the deck is made up of individual pavers that move independently, there is no danger of cracking like solid concrete. If a paver should be damaged or chipped, you simply remove and replace that single paver. Pavers are available in a variety of materials including, natural stone, concrete and porcelain. Paul and Melinda decided on 2” thick, large format, “slab style” concrete pavers in three different sizes.

Once the ground was prepped – they were thrilled to see that the deck was installed as quickly as their Optimum Pool! The pavers were finished off with special polymeric sand to hold the pavers in place and discourage weeds from growing in between.

Paul and Melinda’s pool and paver project came together quickly and it was captured start to finish by the Designing Spaces™ show airing on the Lifetime® Network. Check out this informative Designing Spaces™ segment to see how you can go from grass and dirt to a backyard oasis in a matter of hours!
