There is a great range of pavers out there with an even greater variety of textures, shades, and structural qualities. Finding the cream of the crop can be a daunting task, especially when your client has a very specific vision for their hardscape. Fortunately, Unilock offers an array of versatile products that are not only stunning, but are guaranteed to outlast the ravages of time and weather. Here are a few options that clients adore and contractors have found to be incredibly reliable.
StoneMark pavers from Unilock have surface textures and shades that emulate the timeless elegance of natural stone. However, beneath their intricate surfaces, they are imbued with all the strength and structural perfection of manufactured concrete pavers.
Rivenstone pavers have a distinct flagstone-like appearance that is versatile and suitable for a variety of patio and walkway styles. They are available in a dark, enchanting Bluestone shade and the warmer, golden variation of Canyon. Their finest quality, however, lies in their captivating surface textures. Crafted using Reala Surface Technology from Unilock, their textures have been cast from real natural stones, guaranteeing a random, natural look. The raised patterns upon their surfaces are highlighted by landscape lighting and reflect the light in beautiful and unexpected ways. Consider installing Rivenstone pavers beside a fire pit or retaining wall fitted with small low-lying lights to capitalize on this effect.
Yorkstone pavers have the raw, natural look of sandstone and plenty of character. Their brushed surfaces can serve to personalize a hardscape, while pairing them with modern materials such as metal and white fabrics creates a trendy hardscape with the intriguing touch of distressed stone. The Iron River color variation is a good candidate for poolside patios, as it pairs well with bright blue hues and has a tropical look. Unlike real natural stone, which attracts dust and can feel unpleasantly rough, StoneMark pavers are fine to the touch while remaining non-slip.
