Living the waterfront lifestyle can be very enjoyable, but so often properties end in an impractical slope towards seawalls.
Southwest Florida is known as a waterfront housing market with very little elevation above sea level. Over the last few decades, new housing codes designed to protect properties from flooding have been put into place. One requirement for newer homes has been to raise the elevation of land the house is built on. A great solution for keeping homes dry, but also the result of unusable slopes towards the edges of properties. Paver walkways, steps, and retaining walls fix the problem with a terraced effect.
Waterfront homes will have seawalls, and these are beautifully complemented with a paver walkway. Picture having easy access to a boat lift, dock, and fishing. Paver walkways are among the most powerful elements of curb appeal, which means that they add value to properties. A decorative retaining wall with a matching paver walkway can transform any waterfront property into the envy of the entire neighborhood, and this is something that will be very beneficial when it is time to sell the home.
