Types of Pavers
Add a sense of class to your project with authentic natural stone products. There are a wide variety of natural stones available — from flagstone to granite to travertine. These pavers are carved from the earth, so each stone is unique and the slight variations in color can add an organic and personal touch to your project.
A brick paver is made from clay that is formed into its shape and cured baking in a kiln. Note, when shopping for pavers, the word “brick” is sometimes used to describe the shape of the stone — so you may see “concrete bricks” that aren’t technically bricks.
Concrete pavers are created by pouring concrete into a mold, adding a dye to mimic natural stone, and incorporating various finishes and textures. These man-made pavers have a limitless variety of shapes, colors, and sizes —resulting in virtually unlimited design possibilities.
Ways to Incorporate Pavers
If you are tired of your boring concrete or asphalt driveway, pavers offer a unique flair with unbeatable durability. If you are environmentally-conscious, pavers are permeable — meaning pavers will soak down to the ground rather than washing away the rainwater and driveway oils and salts.

A relatively inexpensive project, creating planters with pavers can match your hardscaping already used in your yard — creating a more cohesive and professional look.
Stepping stones serve a functional purpose, but add a decorative design to your yard. You can define paths and separation by using pavers for stepping stones.
Before starting a paver installation, you need to clear the area. Contact local utility companies to identify if any utility lines run where you need to dig. Once your utility lines are marked, it’s time to tear up any old walkways, driveways, or patios that you are replacing. Next, you will need to fill the area up again with crushed concrete or rocks. This is your aggregate.
Screed the sand and lay the pavers with the rough surface facing upward for a more natural stone look. As you install the pavers, you will want to tap gently with a rubber mallet to ensure the pavers seat nice and flat.
Add a restraining wall along flower beds by burying pavers in an upright position. This is an effective and inexpensive way to keep water and dirt from spilling onto your pavers. Once you’ve laid all of your pavers, spread masonry sand and fill in between each paver. Leave surplus sand across the top of the pavers.
Sweep and re-sweep the surface with the remaining surplus of sand. You may need to repeat this process over the next few days as any rain will compact and settle the sand.
Maintaining and protecting your investment is important. Pavers are extremely durable, but to ensure you preserve the beauty and integrity of your pavers, it’s best to keep them swept, cleaned, and resealed every three to five years.
Each Spring, use a strong broom and paver cleaner. Watch for any weeds — if you do not address them, they may cause your pavers to shift over time. Apply a granular weed preventative between the paver joints.
In the event of an oil spill, use a granular oil absorbent to soak it up. Rubbing the spill will only drive the stain deeper into the paver. Be sure to follow the directions on any paver cleaner you buy. Using a de-icing substance in proper amounts shouldn’t damage your paver, however, it may accelerate the wear on some paver styles.
The joints between your pavers are the most vulnerable part of the installation. Keep masonry sand around and top off your joints to prevent the sand bed below from deteriorating — causing the pavers to shift. Lastly, sealers should not be applied more than once in three years — too many applications can create a film that may discolor in the sunlight.
