Backyard and Driveway Interlocking Cost in 2023
Interlocking stone is a decorative and functional way to improve the look of your home’s landscape. Perfect for high traffic areas such as driveways, patios, pool decks and your front entrance, interlocking pavers will provide you with years of elegant and durable landscaping.
Many homeowners often put off installing interlocking paving because they are worried it will cost too much. However, interlocking paving is one of the most affordable ways to enhance the look of your home with a significant return on investment.
Let’s review how much interlocking costs.
What affects the cost of interlocking?
Like any home renovation project, there are a variety of factors that can affect your budget. The same goes for interlocking paving. The most common things you should consider when putting your project plans together include:
Interlocking project size – The size of your project will determine how many bricks you will need. A larger project will require a more significant amount of bricks, while a smaller one will naturally require fewer.
Design Complexity – If you want to create a unique pattern or design, you will need different stone colours or materials. You also need a trained installer who can bring your design to life. We recommend reviewing your design in detail with your installer, so they can ensure they are bringing in the right quantity and colour of bricks to complete your design.
Type of Interlocking Stones Chosen – There are numerous interlocking stone options depending on your design and budget. Your installer will work with you to find the right stone option that fits your budget. Stones come in a variety of colours and sizes, which will impact their cost.
The most common stone types include natural stone, brick, concrete, and resin. Each one offers a different level of protection from the elements and lifespan. So choose a stone that is going to suit your lifestyle and reflects how long you want your new stone to last.
Additional Project Requirements – The next important factor to consider is what will be involved in the design and installation of your project. If you are starting from scratch, then you may need to remove your existing driveway or path. This will require excavation, debris removal and preparing the landscape for the brick installation.
This can take a day for smaller spaces to several days for larger properties. Your installer will be able to provide you with a detailed plan of how your project will proceed, so you can factor any additional project requirements into your budget. The installation process will likely take a day or two depending on the complexity of your design, so you may not have access to your driveway or areas of your property for a few days.
Interlocking Costs in 2023
Taking the factors we just reviewed into consideration, you can put together a budget that accurately reflects your driveway interlocking cost. We suggest that you review several stone options to ensure you are getting the look you want.
Common stone: $20 – $30 per sq.ft
High-end stone: $25 – $35 per sq.ft
Supply and demand also plays a role in the cost and availability of stone. Your installer will provide you with a wide selection of stone options, so you can get the highest quality materials at a cost that fits your budget.
