Paver Deck and Patios, Courtyards And Walkways

When people think of paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways, one of the first things that comes to mind is the red rectangle brick style or maybe the modular brownish paver.

In my opinion certain paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways are very limited in their uses. One that quickly comes to mind is the red rectangular brick may work in one of the historic districts down town or if you are in certain garden styles.

It seems that the least expensive paver for your paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways is that interlocking paver found in many of the big box stores. I have seen it used on both driveways and front entrances and it always gives off a sort of cold commercial look. Sometimes it looks just cheap.

For a few pennies more per square foot a two or three pattern non tumbled paver for your paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways will give you more bang for your buck. The colors are a blend of two or more colors and the spectrum starts in the light browns then darker. Then a little red or blue may appear. Here in Phoenix when using pavers for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways there are a few different manufactures with the most common being Phoenix Paver and Belgard Paver. I cannot say any one is better than the other. They are different, and the differences are very subtle. The Pavestone Paver for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways have more of a ridge than the Belgard, but it is not something you notice unless you put them side by side and really inspect them. The other thought for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways that comes to mind is that there is a few millimeters difference in size.  I really do not think any of these variances can make one better than the other for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways. One difference with pavers for paver deck and patios that contractors pick up is that when you are laying a three piece pattern and run out of either the small rectangles called “Twinkies”. The squares and “Twinkies” you need to buy is a mixed pallet of the two. A pallet containing of just one is unavailable from Phoenix Paver for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways. Belgard does offer this option.

Artistic Paver for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways is a manufacturer originally out of Florida and opened up a plant in Casa Grande a few years ago. This company specializes in pavers for pools but the paver works very well in paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways. I think most home owners considered KoolDeck the bench mark for pool decking. This company takes pool decking to the next level. The look is elegant and the product remains maintenance free for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways. It is also cooler than KoolDeck.

A few times I have bordered Artistic Pavers with side by side Travertine Paver border for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways. I have also surrounded travertine patterns within the Artistic Pavers for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways.

One project for a paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways I am working on now will have a Mexican beach pebble pattern hand placed on its side in the center of a Travertine Paver deck. My backyard paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways have 6″ x 12″ tumbled travertine oro laid in a herringbone pattern. I have two planting areas that are about 16″ front to back. Rather than use standard granite I opted for a smaller river rock in the planting areas.

Travertine pavers for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways come in many more patterns than just a few years ago. The most common size only a few years ago was 6″ x 12″. Now you can get Versailles and mini Versailles Patterns.  You can also create hop scotch patterns. Monterey Tile will also do custom sizes. In fact I am having them cut an octagonal shape stone for one of my clients. It will be the center of a pattern within the paver field.

Saltillo also comes in a paver form for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways. The shapes are square, rectangle and octagonal. A nice compliment to them is a Burnt Adobe paver or Pinto Pavers.  They do not look structurally very sound, but they can be found in many paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways that have them still in use for more than 20 years and they are visually appealing.

Pavers for paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways are usually my decking material of choice. Let me know your thoughts.
