Advantages of Stone Pavers
Some people like to pave their yards with stone pavers. This can be done in a number of ways, and the best way is probably dependent on where you live since different regions have different kinds of stones available for paving projects. If you’re looking at local options, there’s limestone if your area has that kind of rock; or granite if it does not. There are also many other types which vary from region-to-region depending primarily on what type(s) exist naturally in an area (limestone), but might depend as well upon whether a person lives near any quarries producing rocks found locally such as marble boulders strewn about nearby hillsides after they’ve been blasted off by dynamite during mining operations!
Beauty. The natural beauty of these products is a major reason for their popularity. The elegant color and texture variations found in each one make them so attractive to the eye, it’s no wonder they are sought after by all sorts of people.
Durability. Stone pavers have been used for millennia, and are among the most durable building materials available. The Romans paved their roads with stone in order to provide a stable surface that would last long after they were gone. Some of these ancient paving stones can still be seen today!
Design. Stone pavers are available in a number of shapes, sizes, and colors. With so many options it can be difficult to choose the perfect one for your landscape design project.
Different Paving Materials
You may have considered adding a fresh look to your home’s exterior with pavers, but you’re not sure which type of paver is best suited for the job. You might be interested in knowing that there are three main types available on the Australian market: concrete; brick or stone.

Brick Pavers. Brick pavers are made from clay and shale, which is why they’re sometimes called clay pavers. There’s more than one way to make them, but the most common method used by brick companies relies on a process known as “soft mud.” This technique uses raw materials like sand or crushed stone mixed with 25-30% of rock containing quartz particles in order to minimize shrinkage when forming the bricks for firing at 900-1000°C.
Concrete Pavers. Concrete Pavers are made from a very dry mixture of aggregates, sand, cement, and dyes. Manufacturing processes may vary slightly, but generally, little water is used in the process to create an almost-cast stone effect that has become increasingly popular due to its resilience when it comes to wear and tear as well as color variation with pigments or stains for more artistic flair.
Stone Pavers. With so many different types of stone pavements to choose from, it can be hard determining which one is right for your project. In this post we’ll discuss the differences between Granite and Marble pavers in order to help you make a more informed decision about what will work best on your driveway or patio.
Travertine Pavers. Travertine pavers, like marbles, are all-natural and eco-friendly. These sedimentary rocks were formed from pressure changes over time. Travertine is a popular choice of flooring for outdoor landscaping or countertops with its natural beauty that looks great on patios as well as indoors too!
