Pavers

 

Pavers are natural materials like flagstone, limestone, or sandstone. Excavated from stone quarries, they are cut into a wide variety of shapes. We commonly use stone pavers in their rough form. Larger stone rocks come from the quarry and then they are chiseled into small flat sections to make pavers.

As each paver is uniquely a different shape and size, we lay them out first and then choose each paver to fit precisely into the path. Concrete pavers are the most common type. Concrete is poured into a mold to form different shapes that include rectangles, circles, pentagons, and hexagons.

Brick is another choice material for use as pavers. Bricks are available in a wide variety of sizes and colors and have been used building walkways for hundreds of years. For traditional homes and buildings, bricks blend very well with the existing landscape and this makes them easy to use for landscape design. We may set bricks in a basket weave or herringbone to give a nice effect.
