Interested in traditional paving pattern looks and types? Brick is an option that gives your home a timeless, rustic look. Brick comes in various finishes with classic patterns such as herringbone, basketweave, pinwheel, grid, circular and many more. Although there are limits to the size and colour of each individual brick paver, this is what makes it such a timeless option for any garden or patio. Brick is also incredibly strong and will stand up well to the elements.

Concrete Pavers

When somebody hears the word concrete, the first thing that usually comes to mind is a dull and lifeless surface. Concrete pavers are of a different breed. In fact, concrete is the most commonly used material with designs that can be stamped, finished and engraved in any custom unique look by paving contractors.

Concrete pavers are offered in a variety of different colours, shapes and textures with easy installation – making them a popular choice. Concrete pavers are also low-maintenance and durable enough to withstand Australia’s harsh weather conditions.

Limestone Pavers

Limestone pavers offer a wide range of colours – from light beiges to dark greens – most suitable for garden patios. Limestone has always been perceived as a calming and natural choice for any home. As it is a heavy and durable natural stone, it can last for a long time with minimal maintenance. Gardens and patios paved with limestone are naturally safe too. Their surfaces have anti-slip surfaces suitable for children frolicking around the area. This makes them a popular choice for gardens, patios and swimming pools.

Granite pavers are rising in popularity in the garden and landscapes of homes in Australia. The material has the ability to completely transform the look of a patio, especially when the pavers are cut directly from the granite stone and preserve their natural beauty. They retain their elegance and never become outdated. It also blends in well with plants, flowers and trees – allowing homeowners to create an area where they can extend the space of their house and enjoy their natural surroundings.

Additionally, granite pavers are able to withstand various harsh weather and climatic elements. There will hardly be any scratches or usual wear in it.
