Tips for choosing the Best Interlocking Brick for your Property

Ottawa Interlock is very popular for a number of applications. You can use it in driveways, to create attractive walkways, retaining walls and of course backyard patios. When you are installing interlocking brick on your property there are a number of things you should consider. Here are a few tips to help you choose your Ottawa interlock:

  • Colour: Ottawa interlock comes in a number of colours and tones. Some are flecked with multiple colours whereas many favour a particular colour such as grey or clay. When choosing the interlock, you have to consider the look you are trying to achieve. For example do you want the interlock to blend in with the surroundings or do you want to create contrast? You can use one style and colour or elect to combine two or more colours. Many people like the look of having an inset or border in a different color. This works particularly well to accent driveways or wider paths and walkways. You can look at the details of your home such as the colour of your brick or siding, shutters or even your front door as the inspiration and jumping off point for the colour of your interlock.
  • Shape: Interlock comes in a number of shapes and sizes. You can use these styles to create interesting patterns or go for a more uniform look. Many of the shapes are designed to allow you to align your structures such as for curved retaining walls.
  • Pattern: You can use the colours and shapes you choose to create interesting patterns. These patterns provide a sense of texture and add design details that add to the appeal of your interlock. Patterns might be difficult to design and working with an Ottawa interlock company will allow you to work with someone who can provide you with a design scheme to suit your needs.
  • Purpose: Interlock uses “systems” to make building structures and laying interlock easier. You can look at the different pieces in order to have the proper functioning units. There are finishing stones for edges and ledges, curved stones to accommodate curved or circular structures and beds as well as different types of stones for building structures and walls or laying for patios.

Using these tips will help you find the interlock Ottawa home owners need to improve the appearance of their outdoor spaces and property.
