• Pave a driveway
• Create walkways and paths
• Create patios
• Create accent designs around pools, planters and outdoor fireplaces
• Flooring for outdoor kitchens
How do you go about choosing brick pavers, though? Here are a few ideas to get you going.
Brick pavers are available in a very wide range of styles and designs. You’re not limited to the traditional red clay brick. You can also find many other options, including:
• Unusual shapes
Combining Brick Pavers
Perhaps the best option is to combine different types of brick pavers within an application. For example, you might choose to use clay brick pavers to create an outdoor patio and then edge the patio with a different color and style of paver to create a contrasting look. You might choose to use red brick pavers as a pool deck material and then use bull-nosed pavers of a contrasting color around the very edge of the pool. Your options are almost limitless.
Your Ultimate Design
In the end, you should choose your brick pavers based on the overall style that you want to achieve. For example, if you’re interested in creating an old world look for your garden, then cobbled brick pavers can be used to build walking paths.
It can be difficult to create a cohesive design on your own though, particularly if you are not intimately familiar with the different design options available. Working with a skilled outdoor landscape designer can ensure that you get the look and feel that you want.
