Patio & Pergola. Friday , September 29th , 2017 - 04:59:47 AM
In the Northeastern US, most suggest using at least a 4-6 inch base of crushed stone, and even up to 7 inches is recommended due to harsh winter weather. For brick pavers, this means that you'll need to dig to about 9" depth, since the pavers are 2 inches in height. Since this is a lot of digging, it may be one of the primary reasons to hire a landscape company.
Shade structures were once all made from canvas. However, today there are many colourful acrylic fibres that are woven together to make shade cloths. The cloths are long lasting and tough, making damage from wind or storm unlikely. The closeness of the weave creates different levels of protection against the sun, giving the consumer yet more choice about the amount of protection desired - and cost, too.
Patio covers also have the advantage of being an inexpensive way to, in effect, extend your home into your backyard while blocking the sun's rays from entering through your home's windows and heating up the place during the sweltering summer months.
