combined brick and paver in hardscape design?
We're redoing our tiny (24'w x 26'deep) side yard. We have removed a deck that covered about 1/3 of the space and will be removing a 50' Norway maple (high roots) and replacing it with river birch (deep roots), and removing the old brick patio. Our landscape architect (and neighbor) has created a design that would allow us to reuse the brick and has added a 14' paver circle.
HOUSE here and on RIGHT SIDE------->
1. The photos were chopped off, so the circle is actually a complete circle, not as show above.
2. The brick will wrap around to the right side of the circle, with 1-1/2' of plantings by the fence, instead of as shown. By wrapping the brick around part of the circle, I think it will connect the two hardscapes better.
3. If we use pavers in the same color/tone as the bricks, it will look nice and make the yard feel cohesive.
4. Most importantly, we want a professional looking hardscape and don't want it to look cludged together.
Has anyone here used a combo of brick and pavers in a design where you can share a photo? Will it look better if we use all pavers? We're not going to go with all brick, for sure, but we're struggling over the brick+paver vs all paver question.
Any insights and/or photos most appreciated.
