Concrete Paving

Concrete is a highly versatile, extremely durable, easy-to-install landscape paving material. It is also extremely low maintenance, relatively easy to repair, and comes in a wide range of colors and surface treatments. Decorative concretes are for perfect for pools, decks, walkways, and more.


Although less versatile than concrete, cobblestone is a great landscape paving option that can provide an classic European look to any property. Cobblestones are highly durable, and if properly installed, will look great for a very longtime. Because cobblestones create an uneven surface, they are not recommended for high traffic areas such as driveways and pool decks.


Brick is the happy medium between cobblestone and concrete landscape paving. Brick brings a classic old-world look like cobblestone. But it still has the functionality of a smooth even concrete surface. Although not as versatile in design as concrete, brick is highly suitable for heavy traffic areas like patios and driveways.
