Choose from hexagonal rectangular octagonal or square styles. These types of pavers are exceptionally durable and can last well over several decades. Another type of paver is a turf paver. These hollow pavers are installed using a grid system with a concrete or recycled plastic foundation. Upon installation of this grid also referred to as a "honeycomb" system gravel and topsoil are added inside. The pavers making up these grids encourage the growth of grass over the structure which creates an incredibly strong pavement made of turf or grass. These eco-friendly pavers are used to reduce the erosion of the soil and are a great "green" alternative to 100% concrete pavements.
Pavers can be installed in a variety of unique and interesting patterns to add flair and interesting qualities to your home garden or business. When laying pavers long straight lines should be avoided and either a basket weave pattern or a varying unique pattern should be used in straight line paver installation. This creates an ambiance that is reflective of your personality as well as the home or business personality. A qualified paver contractor should be able to interest you in all kinds of unique paver designs and show you exactly how paver installation can dramatically beautify your home or business. When looking for a paver contractor make sure he or she is willing to listen to your ideas and thoughts and then build upon them. A quality paver contractor will come will a solid reputation and references that are impeccable. Most of all a paver contractor should be enthusiastic about your project. It is a project of creativity and artistic impression combined with skill and knowledge. A lack of enthusiasm can be taken for a lack of artistic ability.
A common question that we encounter is whether you can use a thin paver on top of base material. The answer is not absolute. In reality it depends on the circumstances of the project and the proficiency of the crew or individual installing the pavers in the first place. The one aspect of the project that must remain constant if considering the use of thin pavers over base is that the area to be paved must only be used as a pedestrian area that wont endure the weight of vehicular traffic. Using a thin paver on compacted base is typically frowned upon within the paver industry. They are normally used to remodel an existing concrete tile or acrylic surface.
Pavers come with a natural sealant or you can add a sealant to keep the pavers from being slippery. Since the pavers surround the pool water can make the pavers wet but the sealant keeps it from being a safety hazard. While the focus here is pool pavers pavers actually have various uses. Beyond creating a pool patio or deck pavers are also the material for creating driveways and walkways. A paver is a design material that provides these outdoor areas a finished look. Whether its in the front yard backyard or on the side of your home you can use pavers to create these different areas outside of your home.
