ICPI & NCMA
Installing hardscape on your property is not as easy as it seems. Some DIY websites emphasize the ease of laying pavers for a patio, driveway, footpath, or other hardscape. These sites want homeowners to think all they need is brick, gravel, a rake, and a mallet.
Our crew has over 20 years in the landscaping industry, serving homeowners in Sparta, New Jersey, and all of Sussex and Morris counties. We know how to design and install hardscape. To endure weather and erosion while maintaining the enhancements you desire, we will use the correct products on your property.
DIY sites do not provide homeowners with a professional on-site assessment unique to your property. Only a professional mason and designer can offer the total package customized to your property and objectives.
We recognize the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) as the leading authority when it comes to concrete pavers. ICPI has developed technical guidelines for all quality landscapers to follow to ensure that the pavement systems its members install offer durability, life-cycle, and aesthetics through sustainability, pavement systems, design, installation, and maintenance.
If you're not fully educated on all the particulars of these standards, it is in your best interest to do business with someone who is educated. Considerations include the proper materials, tools, understanding the foundation, grading, drainage, installation, finishing, and maintenance necessary when installing your patio, driveway, footpath, or other hardscape. It's important to use your investment dollars wisely and find a professional you trust.
It's also essential to choose the proper materials for your project. Not all pavers are created equal. Not all pavers will sustain the weight of vehicles and are not for use in driveways. Interlocking concrete pavers provide many long term advantages, according to ICPI.
Bottom line: It's ok to do some homework online, as you are doing now. Read about the differences in paver types and their uses, check out creative designs, and learn all you can about installation process and maintenance. Just as it is important to properly prepare the foundation for your hardscape, your new knowledge base will also properly prepare you when speaking with your professional landscaper about your project. However, when it comes to actually doing the work, protect your investment and property and call a professional! Total Concepts has now completed the ICPI & NCMA educational classes to give you a peace of mind that will provide the proper installation for the beautification of your property.
