Weaving, winding pathways with various degrees of elevation require highly skilled people with the best equipment to properly pave the way.
Having the right people and tools to do the job right is the reason Ital Paving has become the top choice for creating and updating golf course cart paths throughout the region.
“Our knowledge about landscape and terrain is very beneficial when we’re building golf courses from start to finish,” explains Niki Pickett, owner of Ital Paving. “Understanding the landscape and the way it moves is essential to making certain that everything flows properly, and the final result is a good smooth pave.”
It’s not simply knowing the way to work with the land that’s important: Ital Paving invested in a machine that is specifically designed for building golf cart paths. These cart path pavers can work in spaces that large spreaders just can’t reach.
“We don’t have to tell our golf course clients that they have to make paths eight feet wide because that’s what a spreader does,” says Niki. “We have invested in golf course paving equipment to be able to accommodate the sizes for existing paths and new ones, which are generally only six feet wide.”
They are the only paving business north of Toronto that has a golf-cart paver able to accommodate a six-foot wide path, explains Niki.
And it doesn’t have to be all paved. Some clients want gravel on the level areas and paving just on the hills.
Businesses can stay open
Seasonal businesses like golf courses can’t afford to shut down while their paths are being repaved. “We’re happy to work with our clients to accommodate their seasonality,” says Niki.
The same goes for other paving projects, from driveways to sports courts to parking lots. With the right planning and collaboration, Ital Paving minimizes the impact on the clientele while getting the job done quickly and professionally.
“We’ve been serving Simcoe County and area for many years. We have the skill set and coordination experience so that businesses can remain open while still enhancing their property,” says Niki. “We have flaggers for safety, the right signage, and all the items necessary to get the job done.”
