Linear is in. The long, lean look pairs perfectly with modern homes and gives structure to your patios, walkways, pool surrounds, and driveways. Here are four linear concrete pavers perfect for a running bond paver pattern in Pottstown, PA.
What is a running bond pattern? It’s the classic “brick” pattern where rectangular pavers are laid lengthwise to each other, with staggered joints where the ends of one paver are aligned with the middle of the neighboring paver. This pattern has been used for millennia to create structurally strong roads, plazas, buildings, walls, pillars, and towers.
Today, the pattern is as popular as ever. Whether you want to achieve a clean minimalist look or incorporate curves into your hardscape, you can achieve any look you want using the running bond pattern. The running bond pattern is often used to create curved spaces (especially when you use smaller pavers). Because of its timeless appeal, the running bond pattern works just as well with ultramodern homes as it does with grand estates, cottages, or suburban homes. Here are a few beautiful selections from Unilock.
Promenade plank pavers from Unilock come in one size: 4” x 12.” This helps create a unified look while you unleash your creativity and mix and match the paver line’s various textures, colors, and finishes to achieve a fully custom look. The smooth, mottled Umbriano finish is available in Midnight Sky (it’s stunning as an accent or border). The monochromatic Smooth finish is available in Charcoal or Dark Grey to give your patio or driveway a chic look. And the weathered Series finish is available in Black Granite, Peppered Granite, and Ice Grey—the perfect complement to a traditional brick structure. The dramatically textured Il Campo brushed finish is available in Dark Charcoal and Granite.
Mattoni pavers from Unilock offer the beloved brick style that’s been in use for centuries, but in modern colors (Sable, Mocha Brown and Dark Charcoal) and a slender 2-⅜” x 9-½” profile that makes them perfect for curved applications. When laid in a running bond in the direction of travel, your walkway or driveway will have a sensuous look that reflects curves in the landscape. On a patio, the running bond gives the space a structured feel.
Artline pavers from Unilock are a designer’s dream. Artline pavers are available in a random bundle of seven different rectangular shapes, of varying lengths and two widths, as well as two finish options and various colors. You can use a unified theme in color and finish and alternate wider and narrower paver lines; or, give each part of your hardscape its own feel by using Artline pavers in a different finish or color.
Copthorne pavers from Unilock give your home the charm of brick, but with an expanded range of colors. Choose from Burgundy Red, Old Oak, Steel Blue, Basalt, and Burnt Clay; and mix up to three colors on site to create a one-of-a-kind patio, walkway, or driveway. Copthorne pavers feature Reala Technology for an authentic old-world surface appearance, and Ultima Concrete Technology for up to four times the strength of poured concrete. These concrete pavers are a beautiful choice for running bond patterns on your patio, driveway, or walkway.
