I was thinking about installing pavers in my front yard. Yes or No? Pros? cons?

I wouldn't as you'll spend time weeding the weeds out that grow around the pavers.

I have pavers and half cement. The problem with concrete is that it will always crack. Pavers on the other hand don't and go with the movement. Any weeds just use round up.

Yes, the pavers go with the movement and eventually end up being uneven. Not a pretty sight. I'd go with concrete as it's easier to maintain and it stays smooth. To each his own said the old lady as she kissed her cow :-)

Paver stones cost alot more than cement.
While the rebarbed cement continues to crack.

No did half the yard with concrete with rebarb about 4 dump truck loads and the other half with paverstones. A good combo.

there is stuff you can put under the pavers to prevent weeds, some type of plastic? maybe ask a landscaper what they use. My mom lives there and has no problem with weeds. it's all desert landscape. :-)

Personally i think paver look much better than concrete
