Sidewalks

A nice concrete sidewalk really sets a home apart. Concrete sidewalks not only make for a clean dry walkway, but they also provide a great landscaping opportunity that boosts a home’s curb appeal.

A concrete sidewalk is most commonly seen in front of the home leading to the main entrance. However, sidewalks have many more applications.

  • Walkway for rear entrances
  • Walkway from a detached structure
  • Path to a gazebo or landscaped area

curved sidewalk and landscapingOn a median priced home sidewalks are usually 3 feet wide. This does not give a lot of room especially if you have a lot of traffic on that walkway, or if you plan to decorate with potted plants or seating areas. We are seeing a trend in home construction where sidewalks are really being used to create an entrance to a home. Sidewalks are now commonly being formed 4-6 feet, and even wider. This obviously creates a grander entrance and provides a better opportunity for landscaping and design.

5 foot wide sidwalkWhen most people think of a sidewalk they think of rigid 90 degree angles. However, sidewalks are now being designed to flow with the landscape of the home. This usually means the sidewalk is formed using natural flowing curves versus the awkward 90 degree turns. There are still situations where 90 degree angles are desired, but when applicable the natural design of a curving sidewalk always seems to fit in better with the home and landscaping.
