How to Protect Your Landscaping and Yard During Your Asphalt Laying Project

August, 15, 2021 By CASSIDY PAVING 6 min read
Are you concerned about maintaining your landscaping and yard while an asphalt project is happening on your property? Not only is your residential driveway paving an investment, but your landscaping was too, and it is essential to keep it safe. Here are the best things you can do when working with an asphalt paving contractor to protect your yard.

Timing Is Everything

Especially if your asphalt installation is part of a new home construction project, you should be mindful of the process stages. The best thing you can do to protect your landscaping is not to have it done until after all asphalt services are complete. No doubt you want your home looking beautiful as soon as possible, but with the types of equipment and number of people it takes to install a driveway, there’s no foolproof way to ensure that grass, trees, or other items on your property are safe. This is all about project management either by you (the homeowner) or a construction manager. It is never too early to coordinate services between contractors, and the sooner you begin, the better off you’ll be.

Use Barriers

Although it may sound obvious, using proper barriers to protect the important areas of your yard really works to keep people from walking and driving in places they shouldn’t be. When you set up obstacles like ropes, rocks or boulders, pole markers, parking posts, parking cones, safety fences or nets, and signage, you are more likely to keep your yard protected. Not only does this give you peace of mind, but asphalt paving contractors would rather have clear instructions on what you as the customer prefer and how we can best serve you. The more clear instruction you can give, the better the process will be for everyone involved in your asphalt services.

Smart Design Planning

Even though more of your yard may be necessary to be used by asphalt installers during the paving process, you should consider that the placement of your driveway needs to make sense for the flow of traffic. If you’re placing your driveway in an area that may often require extra visitors to drive in your yard, it may not be the best option. Working with your asphalt paving company to determine the right spot to put your driveway is very important to keep your landscaping in the best condition. Don’t wait until after your paving is installed to think about how you and visitors to your home will be parking and accessing your property.
