Patio pavers aren’t just for patios. Pavers are available in a wide variety of materials such as brick, concrete and stone. Professional landscapers and homeowners alike can find many uses for these building materials, such as walkways, driveways, planters, pool decks, garden pathways and borders, steps and many more.
Using Patio Pavers for Your Garden and Landscaping Project
With the many colours, designs and textures available, landscaping professionals and homeowners can become very creative with these “building blocks.” Stone barbecues, outdoor kitchens, cozy alcoves, outdoor fireplaces, raised patios with seatwalls and columns and pillars for pergolas can all be built using patio pavers.
The newer interlocking style of pavers such as those from Unilock have made it even easier for anyone to complete a design project on their own. These materials are stronger and more durable than old-fashioned bricks and cinder blocks, not to mention much more attractive. It’s also easy to clean and maintain these pavers. If used in a driveway, for example, oil stains are no problem, since individual blocks can be removed for cleaning, just turned over and repositioned, or replaced outright.
At the Van Beek’s Garden Supply in Oakville, you can see the latest colours and varieties of brick pavers. Gravel, small rocks, brick sand and aggregates are also available for your patio project.
