Tips For Choosing & Laying Pavers

1 min read

There are a few tips you should bear in mind when you are choosing and laying pavers:

  • Always look at pavers outside in the natural light.
  • Select pavers that match internal floor coverings to ensure the transition from indoor out is subtle and blends with your decorating style.
  • When paving a small space keep the design simple and use a neutral coloured, large format paver to create a sense of space. Large format pavers speed up the laying process. Having trouble growing grass in heavy traffic areas? Consider a paved garden path. Paved paths also help direct traffic and can reduce the amount of dirt carried into your home.
  • To make a path appear more substantial, use a stretcher bond laying pattern across the width of the path.
  • If paving a slope, it is important to start at the bottom and pave up the slope.
  • Paved areas should fall away from buildings and towards areas where run-off can be absorbed by plants.
  • Keep labour cost down by clearing the area first by removing grass and existing pavers, and potting any plants you want to keep.
  • We recommend that concrete pavers be sealed with a quality penetrating sealer following installation.
