The terms ‘pavers’ and ‘patio bricks’ appear to be quite self-limiting, as they primarily refer to construction materials that can be used to lay pavements and patios in residential garden spaces.
However, there are additional, more nuanced applications for such materials within the construction industry, despite the industry struggling and recording the fastest rate of decline in terms of activity since the peak of the coronavirus crisis in May 2020.
4 Use for Pavers and Patio Bricks
In this post, we’ll explore the full range of applications for pavers and patio bricks while highlighting the versatility of these materials.
1. Paths and Walkways
We’ll start with the primary application for paving slabs, which are used to construct secure and flat walkways throughout the UK. Make no mistake; pavers provide a much more durable and accessible alternative to poured concrete, while they also allow for greater flexibility when designing pavements and outdoor space. You can also use paving stones to lay residential property paths that run from a property’s front door to the driveway.
2. Patio and Decking
Patio bricks are specifically designed for use in outdoor garden spaces, while their unique and durable nature mean that they’re considerably less likely to crack than a concrete patio. This is a huge advantage, as is the fact that patio bricks come in a number of different colours and shapes. So, you can tailor unique designs to reflect your personality and the nature of your house and its garden space.
3. Swimming Pools
You can ill afford to have the paving and stones around your swimming pool installations crack, as this could create tripping hazards that are especially dangerous for toddlers. So, the use of robust and versatile patio bricks can work well here, by minimising the risk of cracking and creating a colourful outdoor space with a unique design. Patio bricks are also designed to cope with significant water exposure and the typically outdoor elements that are prevalent in the UK.
4. A Raised Garden
Not all gardens are created equal, and what can you do if you want to develop raised platforms outdoors or elevate your garden above ground level? Well, pavers can be stacked safely and securely to create a raised garden, which will help to create a unique visual aesthetic and provide a healthy environment for flower beds. What’s more, raised gardens can successfully host vegetable gardens, which is great in an age of sustainability and given the rising cost of food produce.
