Concrete Patio Pavers

If you don't want to pour concrete, concrete patio pavers work well and are available in a variety of different designs and shapes.

These smooth, durable pavers can add an informal charm to any outdoor space. You can also use different style pavers, flagstone, sandstone or even marble.

 Using patio bricks or smooth patio tiles, arranged in an elegant design pattern like herringbone or running bond will give your patio a traditional formal look, while a patio laid in natural stone or concrete patio pavers will have a more rustic, rugged feel.

A great idea to get you started is just to look at your friends’ patios, and talk to them about why they chose particular patio pavers, bricks or tiles. Choose patio bricks, tiles or pavers which will work visually with the color and texture of the bricks in your home.

Most of the pavers give a pretty traditional look, although I believe there are some things that can be done to make them look more modern. Brick patios do not crack in the way that concrete has a propensity to do, and should anything be damaged, you need only to substitute a few select bricks or concrete patio pavers rather than replace the complete patio slab. They are similar to brick pavers and are sometimes grouped together, but are much stronger and longer lasting than a typical brick paver.

concrete patio pavers are clearly stronger, but depending on the specific use of your new patio or walkway, either option can be utilized. Natural stone does not have the strength of concrete patio pavers and is generally more porous in nature. Concrete Paver Patios
