Livin’ on the Edge: Paver Edging Options


Planning the perfect outdoor living space involves making lots of choices. While the border of your paver patio may seem like a small detail, there are several options to consider, each with its own pros and cons. When planning your patio, consult with your Eagle Bay installer and this guide to choose the right edge option for your outdoor living space.

Techniseal’s 8′ Rigid Paver Edging allows our contractor to create beautiful curves, angles and designs when laying your pavers. This durable and flexible system helps keep your pavers in place and creates a defined edge around your entire outdoor living space. They can be easily covered with mulch or used in planter beds.

Inlays

An inlay is an edging created by using an Eagle Bay paver of a different color or style to create a visual border around your patio. Our installers can use inlays to create a border around your patio, and inlays can also be used to highlight intricate designs within larger areas. Inlays are a great way to add visual interest to your patio without incorporating another feature.

Curbstone

Eagle Bay Curbstone is designed specifically for use as a bordering paver. It can be used to enhance the curb appeal of your home and finish your walkway, driveway or flowerbed borders with a decorative border. Curbstone is currently available in Chesapeake and James River colors.

Freestanding Wall

Eagle Bay freestanding walls are a decorative and functional element that can be incorporated into almost any patio design. They create a beautiful border for your patio and can often be used as an integrated seating area. Eagle Bay offers three options for freestanding walls in a variety of colors: SteepleCrest Freestanding, Dublin™ FreeStanding and Highland Stone Freestanding.

If you want a more natural look for your patio border, consider planting steppables, which are creeping perennials that create beautiful borders around your patio while controlling weeds. Steppables are plants that are hardy enough to be walked over while providing ground cover for any kind of terrain.

The great thing about choosing an edging option for your patio is that you’re not limited to just one choice. Drop an inlay in front of your freestanding wall, or add an area of steppables next to a walkway lined with Curbstone. The choice is yours!
