Flagstones and pavers are exceptional materials to work with when planning patio designs and installations. The stones used in our patio designs come in just about every color, shape, and size, and will leave your yard looking beautiful, sophisticated and stylish. Take a look at our photos to see our array of stunning options. Homeowners in Lawrence and Topeka trust our team for custom patio and deck design and installation.

Flagstones and pavers seldom crack or fracture when used in patio designs because they consist of relatively flexible materials. When flagstone or pavers do need to be replaced or repaired, which is rare, they do not leave any unsightly scars — something that is crucial to the upkeep of quality patio designs. Moreover, depending on the color of the stones chosen, they can hide virtually every stain or spill, and thus are ideal for entertaining. At GreenTouch Lawn & Tree, we use only real stone — no imitations — in our high-quality patio and deck designs and installations.

Expert installation ensures that your patio designs will last for years.

One way to ensure that these flagstone and pavers patios live out their life expectancy is to have them installed correctly. We have years of experience with patio design, as well as a reputation for great service. We’ll help you decide what type of patio designs would be ideal for your surrounding landscape and your lifestyle and offer tips to maintain your new patio throughout its lifetime.

If you’re worried about the price of a flagstone or paver patio, take a look through our decorative concrete section. Stamped concrete can look just as beautiful and is a bit less expensive, making it a great alternative for your patio designs.

We’re green! We also offer permeable surfaces as a solution to excessive runoff and ultimately more environmentally friendly approach to outdoor surfacing.

Now is the perfect time to start planning your landscape and deck design!

PAVER FAQ’s

Q: Will there be a consistent blend during the installation of the pavers?

A: To ensure a consistent blend, our installers pull pavers from multiple cubes to assure no clustering of colors. After all the pavers are laid, we inspect the project and move pavers if necessary to ensure a consistent blend.

Q: What is the white blush that occasionally appears on a paver?

A: The white on top of any concrete product is generally referred to as efflorescence. Efflorescence is free lime generated by both the cement and the aggregates within the product. Generally, during the first few months of production these calcium deposits work through the products from the inside to the top surface of the pavers. In time, through the natural weathering process, this deposit wears off.

Q: Will weeds grow through the joints of pavers?

A: We have found that occasionally there is some growth that happens in the joints of the pavers, generally a result of wind-carried seeds (weeds do not actually grow up from underneath the pavers). Any type of systemic weed killer can be applied without damaging the pavers. Many weeds are easily pulled by hand.

Q: Can we put de-icing salt on the pavers?

A: Yes, de-icing salts will not damage the pavers; the absorption rate is so low that very little salt will penetrate the pavers. (Salt penetrating concrete is what causes scaling.) Though excessive de-icing salt can stain the pavers, these stains will wear off with time.

Q: Does the color fade?

A: Generally, the paver color tends to lighten over time. This is caused by surface wear and natural pollutants.

Q: Will the compactor scar the surface of the paver?

A: Due to compaction, which is a necessary construction process, slight scuffing does occur. We fasten a rubber pad to the compactor to eliminate most of this. What little does occur will blend in naturally over time.

Q: Will the pavers break under heavy traffic such as a garbage truck or moving van?

A: The driveway pavers are very strong. In fact, pavers are twice as strong as ordinary concrete. A GreenTouch Landscape Paver Driveway is designed to withstand the weight of a moving van or garbage truck. If you need to bring a very heavy truck (such as a cement truck) onto the drive, contact us for information on how to protect the drive.

Q: Will there be a consistent blend during the installation of the pavers?

A: To ensure a consistent blend, our installers pull pavers from multiple cubes to assure no clustering of colors. After all the pavers are laid, we inspect the project and move pavers if necessary to ensure a consistent blend.

Q: We like the pavers when they are wet. How can we keep them looking that way?

A: Sealers will give your pavers a wet look. Sealers are not needed for the protection of the pavers, only for maintaining this wet look if you desire it. Sealers should only be applied after the paver installation has weathered one winter. This is to ensure that all efflorescence has worn off. We recommend an acrylic penetrating sealer. This has a life of approximately 2-4 years. The sealer can be reapplied in the future. Call us for more details.
