Say Yes to Travertine Pavers in Your Backyard

Have you considered the benefits of adding Travertine pavers into your East Valley landscaping?

When people think of paving materials, concrete most often comes to mind. As a landscaping material, concrete is hard-wearing and can be customized for an array of colors and textures. But Travertine is the most cost-effective, value-packed choice over time.

Why Should I Choose Travertine Pavers?

100% Natural Stone
Travertine is a 100% natural stone product. This means that all the colors and patterns in your pavers will be unique to where it was quarried. While concrete pavers can be customized, they are still limited by the manufacturing process.

Most Durable Stone Available
It is also one of the most durable stones available. The Colosseum was built with Travertine and is said to last for up to 100 years. Compare that to brick pavers, which will begin to fade after a year.

Heat Resistant
Another advantage to installing Travertine pavers is that they are heat resistant and stay cool to the touch. Concrete and brick pavers are too hot to walk on most of the year in our Phoenix climate.

Non-slip, Porous Surface
Travertine is also an excellent choice for pool decks. Because it's porous with a non-slip surface, Travertine increases safety around the swimming pool for your family and guests.

What is Travertine?

Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, where it often forms at the mouth of a hot spring or limestone cave. It comes in a variety of colors including white, cream, tan, gray, and rust. Indoors, you'll find it in bathroom showers, kitchen countertops, flooring, and even fireplace surrounds. It has been used as a building material for centuries, all the way back to ancient Rome.

How Do I Clean These Pavers?

Clean them at least once per year using nothing more than water to remove dirt and debris. You can also use a pressure washer (with no chemicals) on the lowest setting for occasional deep cleaning.

Never use bleach or other chemicals such as ammonia on your Travertine pavers. Over time, these chemicals damage and dull the material. Try using poultice powder on stubborn stains such as red wine.

Ideas for Using Travertine Pavers in Your Back Yard

  • Heavy traffic hardscapes (driveway, sidewalk, walkway)
  • Patio (for heat-resistant properties and easy cleanup)
  • Pool and spa decks (a superior alternative to brick or concrete)
  • Outdoor kitchen or BBQ island countertop surfaces
  • Outdoor steps (perfect because of it's non-slip properties)

Benefits of Hardscape Landscaping

We can use pavers and stone in unique ways to achieve a low-maintenance hardscape. Include a seating wall near an outdoor fireplace or fire pit. Build decorative steps into your home or to a raised patio. Install borders around plants, shrubs, and trees. Add stepping stones across artificial grass leading to a putting green or pergola. Create a stunning water feature with LED landscape lighting.

  • Hardscaping conserves water and reduces your water bill.
  • Pavers limit the weed growth you deal with when you have gravel.
  • A hardscape expands usable living and entertaining space in your yard.
  • An appealing landscape design increases your property value.
