Concrete Pavers
Concrete pavers are an inexpensive way to build walls, and create beautiful paths and patios for your outdoor living space.

An interlocking concrete paver is  pre-cast, and installed over a compacted stone sub-base and a bed of sand. Concrete paving stones can be used for walkways, patios, pool decks, and driveways, and can be a more durable choice than clay bricks or poured-in-place concrete.

Instead of connecting the pavers by pouring grout between the joints, sand particles are spread over the pavers and tamped down. The sand stabilizes the interlocking pavers, yet allows for some flexibility. In other words, this type of pavement will absorb stress such as small earthquakes, freezes and thaws, and slight ground erosion by shifting each tile slightly. Therefore, they will not crack or buckle like concrete.

The sand does not easily wash out with rain or garden hose water and a sealer can be spread on to further lock the sand. Additionally, moisture filters through the joints down to a crushed rock base. This allows for ground water recharge and less stress on over taxed storm water systems during high rain conditions.

Interlocking pavers are available in a wide range of shapes, and can be laid in a variety of patterns. For instance, a diagonal arrangement of rectangular tiles might create a herringbone pattern.
