Pavers

Choosing Paving or Construction Materials

The materials you choose for paving will depend on your budget and the style of your house and garden. The choice of materials available for patio paving is constantly expanding... Brick and flagstone are traditional, but you can also use interlocking concrete pavers cut to different patterns, poured concrete, exposed-aggregate concrete, and pebbles and river stones set in concrete. A wide array of tiles and paving slabs with pre-molded patterns such as cobbles, brick, or crazy paving is available. 

You can combine different surfaces in a variety of ways. For example, you might border a concrete patio with brick, and create a cobblestone design in the center. If you can add the color to the dry concrete mix, to the wet material before it is poured, or during the floating stage when the concrete is stroked with a trowel to settle the aggregate under the surface and float the cement to the top. A variety of paints, waxes, and stains suitable for concrete is available; you can use these if you decide to make a change once the patio has been poured.
