- Trees and shrubs can add beauty to your paver yard. Trees and shrubs can add more character to your paver yard and also provide you with natural shade and insulation. A bonus is that these designs require minimum water when planted.
- Kitchen and yard waste makes great compost. Composted materials can help your garden or yard grow naturally, without the use of fertilizers.
