The versatility of pavers allows you add your own personality to the design and create something truly unique that suits any style of home.
The overall design can be adapted depending on the size and shape of the pavers you use, and some patterns are better able to withstand heavy loads and should be used on driveways and heavy traffic areas.
When considering paver pattern ideas, you’re not limited to just one colour. You can add pavers in contrasting colours and textures to produce the effect you want.
By putting a lot of thought and planning into the design and colours of your pavers, and using a design that’s appropriate for the intended purpose, you can create the look and feel you want to express.
By far the most popular designs, and the strongest for driveways, are geometric patterns such as herringbone designs, historic basket weave, simple and eco-friendly running bond, and stack bond – one of the most durable brick paver patterns for walkways.
Of course, there’s no limit to the variations you can create within these geometric designs by changing the colour, size, texture and the angle of the pavers to personalise them, and two paved areas of the same pattern can look completely different to each other. Geometric patterns are the easiest to plan and lay with minimal cutting and waste, and you can add custom borders for more personalisation.
A circular pattern will entail a little more planning and work, but the effect can be stunning and unique with colours and textures. The pavers will need to be cut to make them fit so there is a lot of wastage which makes this pattern costlier. You can create a circular pattern within a square or rectangle of pavers or install a circle as a base for an outdoor setting or round pergola.
Logos and images within your paver design look striking and really make a statement, especially for your business. You can also incorporate meaningful or whimsical images, but keep in mind that the larger the image the harder it is to see the complete picture when you’re standing on the pavers.
If you choose a geometric paver pattern, you could lay the pavers yourself with a bit of planning, but you’ll need to properly prepare the base and ensure water drains away from the pavers.
For other designs and expert advice on the right type of pavers to use, consider hiring a professional landscaper who can help you refine the pattern and lay the pavers so the end result looks the way it should.
