5 Types of Patio Pavers

Pavers are slabs or blocks used to create decorative patios, sidewalks, and driveways. These blocks come in various materials, including marble, brick, flagstone, and rubber. They are an intriguing way to add design to your backyard patio. Yet, many homeowners aren't aware of the materials they can choose from. If you fall into this category, let's take a look at some of your paver options. Then, when you find one you like, give The Southern Landscape Group a call for installation.

5 Types of Patio Pavers

1. Brick 

Brick pavers have been used for centuries. In fact, in some small North Carolina towns, you can still find brick roads. These pavers are made from molded clay that's been put into a kiln and baked. They are then set into a mortar and sand base to create your patio. The beauty of using brick pavers is that they come in various colors and textures, giving you plenty of options. The downside? Brick tends to be fragile and requires regular maintenance. 

2. Concrete

While you may not love the idea of a concrete slab, you can still use concrete pavers to create your patio area. They come in various shapes and sizes, allowing you to play with different patterns and designs. Installation for concrete pavers is straightforward and hassle-free, but you will need to apply a sealer to ensure a long life for your patio. 

3. Flagstone

Flagstone is a sedimentary rock that homeowners love to use in their hardscapes. This stone is unique, and no two pavers are alike. Furthermore, each paver is cut to fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, giving homeowners a unique patio and backyard. Flagstone also has a non-slip surface, making it ideal for families and for those who love to entertain outdoors. 

4. Travertine

Travertine is an all-natural, eco-friendly paver stone that you can use in different ways. Sometimes, homeowners use travertine around pools, while others use it to create entire walkways through their lawns. These pavers are very durable, so their use in your backyard and hardscapes adds value to your home. They're also cheaper than marble, and you don't have to worry about keeping up with maintenance. 

5. Rubber

Today's technology has led to the creation of new things out of old ones. Rubber mats and tiles are a perfect example of this. You might not consider rubber to be a suitable patio paver, but today's options will leave you wondering if it's right for your family. Not only are rubber pavers affordable, but they are eco-friendly and durable. Furthermore, rubber pavers are shock-absorbant and are less susceptible to chipping and cracking than other paver options.
