  • Brick pavers - Brick pavers come in a variety of different colors and can be arranged in various ways to ensure they look the way you want them to.

  • Herringbone - This design pattern is made up of alternating vertical and horizontal pieces of the material you choose to create a memorable zig-zag design. The herringbone pattern is a great choice if you want to bring something unique and modern to your new patio
  • Basketweave - This is a pattern that is used by laying the pavers in alternate directions to create a pattern that resembles a woven basket. It is a popular choice because of the simplicity and versatility it offers.
  • Running bond - The running bond pattern is created by installing pavers side by side in a straight line. Every other row is staggered by half its length to create a symmetrical pattern, making every other row line up perfectly in the end.
