Mortar Set Patios and Walkways - Hardscape Patios and Walkways
Warfield Masonry specializes in walkway and construction. Whether you want to an existing area or create a new one, we excel at mixing artistry with technical skill to create beautiful outdoor spaces. We construct both mortar set and hardscape walkways and patios.
Mortar Set Walkway and Construction
Mortar Set walkways and patios are built on a strong concrete foundation, which is called a concrete underlay “rat slab.” Mortar is then used to adhere the brick or stone to the slab, creating a solid and durable surface that can bear a significant load.
Hardscape Walkway and Construction
Hardscape walkways and patios don’t use mortar at all. They are built upon a bed of sand 5-6 inches deep. The brick or stone is laid on the sand bed and sand is packed in between the stone creating a durable, although less rigid surface. A hardscape surface is less expensive to construct remains porous, allowing for excellent water drainage and protection from freezing and shifting.
