Unilock offers a wide variety of styles, colors, textures, finishes and sizes of our large concrete pavers. This allows you to let your creativity run wild and design a walkway or backyard patio that perfectly complements your home's aesthetics.
Ease of Maintenance
Sometimes, spills happen! Whether it’s a barbecue spill on a backyard patio, or dirt and debris on your front walkway, Unilock large concrete pavers are designed with ease of maintenance in mind. We manufacture pavers designed with EasyClean™, an integral stain resistance technology that ensures easier cleanup of spills before a stain can develop. Our products can be cleaned using a simple soap and water solution with a stiff bristle broom, or use a pressure washer set to a low setting for those harder-to-clean stains.
Safety should always be top of mind, especially when it comes to your outdoor space. At Unilock, we offer large concrete slabs, like Arcana™, that are designed with a slip-resistant surface texture that’ll aid in mitigating slips, trips or falls when crossing a wet pool deck.

Versatile Applications for Extra Large Concrete Pavers
The purpose of a walkway is typically to connect your driveway to your front entry, or your front yard to your backyard. However, its function and purpose does not end there. We offer several large concrete paver walkway options that will not only complement your overall design, but add visual interest all the way to the front entrance. To create a welcoming atmosphere at night, landscape lighting installed directly into your large concrete walkway pavers will help safely guide visitors to your home and mitigate potential trip hazards.
Your home is your haven, so why not design your backyard landscape to reflect that? Our extra large concrete pavers offer a sleek, contemporary look and feel that provides a sense of scale to your landscape. These big concrete pavers aren’t just for looks; they’re for creating a space that truly feels yours. Pair them with enticing outdoor features, like a serene water feature or cozy fire pit, to create a stunning focal point in your design.

When it comes to creating an impressive pool deck, nothing beats the impact of our large concrete slabs. Whether you prefer the silky, matte texture of Arcana or the charming flagstone texture of Beacon Hill, we have options designed to elevate any pool deck. What's more, our large concrete slabs are engineered to withstand the effects of chlorine, so you can enjoy both style and durability while making a big splash.
The first impression of your home often begins at the driveway, and there's no better way to make a lasting impact than with large concrete pavers. To leave a lasting impact, opt for large concrete pavers equipped with EasyClean™ technology, that shields your driveway from dirt, debris, and oil stains caused by vehicle traffic. For the finishing touch, incorporate decorative accent bands like our Copthorne® or Town Hall® pavers. This combination will create a stunning front driveway that not only protects, but also elevates your home's overall curb appeal.
The Unilock Advantage: Excellence in Large Concrete Pavers
Large concrete slabs offer several advantages, depending on the size and shape of your outdoor space. If you have an expansive patio or pool deck area, opting for big concrete pavers can provide a clean and sleek aesthetic while efficiently utilizing materials to cover more ground compared to smaller pavers. Some of our most popular large concrete pavers include:
Arcana™: The silky, matte texture and unique speckled color palette of Arcana is created by fine blasting its surface to expose a combination of natural granite, quartz and marble particles. These large concrete slabs are perfect for patios, pool surrounds, walkways, roof decks and overlays. Long concrete pavers come in sizes ranging from 12x24 up to 24x24”.
Beacon Hill™ Flagstone: The distinctive texture and blended colors of Beacon Hill Flagstone has a relaxed look and feel, with a subtle surface texture that is comfortable to walk on in bare feet. A popular choice for patios, pool surrounds and walkways.
Umbriano®: The granite-like surface appearance makes Umbriano a popular choice for sleek, modern projects. Its unique mottled surface is achieved with ColorFusion™ technology, which randomly disperses rich color and granite particles to achieve a natural, non-slip texture. Umbriano large concrete slabs come in a 36x36 size, available for driveways, outdoor dining areas, and more.
Richcliff®: As part of the exceptional Elegance™ line of products, Richcliff offers superior durability and timeless appeal for patios, walkways and even driveways. A multitude of stone textures were cast using Reala™ Technology, and Ultima™ Concrete Technology makes Richcliff up to four times stronger than conventional poured concrete.
A Guide to Choosing a Trusted Paver Contractor
The hardest part of any home renovation project isn’t the work itself, but rather finding a reliable and reputable contractor to do the job. The most important thing to keep in mind is that the cheapest bid is rarely the best bid.
Here are some tips to consider when selecting a paver contractor:
• Workmanship: Request to see completed projects from more than two years ago to see how well their work holds up over time.
• Sub-Contracting: Inquire about whether the contractor uses sub-contractors for certain aspects of the project, such as lighting or irrigation. If they do, ask how these sub-contractors are managed and vetted to ensure they meet the same standards of quality and professionalism.
• Experience: Find out how long the contractor has been in the hardscape business. Additionally, ask if they have experience with projects that have similar features or requirements to your outdoor space. A contractor with relevant experience is more likely to deliver a successful result.
• Preparation: Discuss the contractor's approach to base preparation, which is a critical factor in the longevity of your paver project. Ask if they have a standard procedure for assessing and preparing the base, and whether they will adapt it to meet your site's unique needs.
• Equipment: Determine if the contractor will provide their own excavation and paver laying tools for the job, or if they will need to be rented, as this may affect your project budget. Also, ask if your contractor uses innovative tools like the UniLyft, as it may potentially save you time on overall labor.
• Schedule and Payment: Good contractors may have a busy schedule, so ask about their lead time for starting your project. Additionally, clarify the expected duration of your project, and ask about payment options, including whether they require an upfront deposit to secure the timing of the project.
• Documentation: Ensure that the contractor is properly licensed and insured. Ask for proof of liability insurance and Workers' Compensation coverage for their employees. This is important to protect yourself in case of accidents or property damage during the project.
• Compatibility: Personal compatibility is essential for a successful working relationship. Make sure you feel comfortable communicating with the contractor and that you can trust their judgment. Contact references provided by the contractor to get a sense of their communication style and how they operate throughout a project.
• Design Services: If you need assistance with the design aspect of your project, inquire about whether the contractor offers design services. Ask about the cost of these services and whether they provide hand-drawn or 3D-rendered concept designs.

Is it cheaper to install large concrete pavers as opposed to small brick pavers?
The cost of installing large concrete pavers compared to small brick pavers varies based on project specifics and material choices. When covering extensive areas like driveways or pool decks, extra large concrete pavers may offer significant cost savings, as they are typically faster to install. It's worth noting that pavers typically account for only 20% of a project's overall budget, with the remaining 80% being attributed to other various aspects of the project, including labor, materials (such as gravel, joint material, edging, etc), equipment rental, and the excavation and disposal of existing materials. To determine which option is cheaper for your project, it's best to consult with a Unilock Authorized Contractor.
How do I maintain my large concrete pavers?
Unilock pavers are designed for minimal maintenance. For common seasonal debris like dirt, leaves, or algae, use a simple soap and water solution and clean with either a pressure washer on a low setting, or a stiff brush. Be cautious not to spray too close to the surface to avoid removing jointing sand and damaging the pavers. During the winter when snow and ice are present, always use a plastic shovel and plastic blade covers on snow blowers or plows to prevent scratching the surface of pavers. Always avoid magnesium-based products, as they are very aggressive and may cause damage to the surface of pavers.
How can I get a warranty on my large concrete pavers?
Unilock provides a Transferable Lifetime Guarantee on the structural integrity of our paving stones and retaining wall units for residential use. Any materials installed and maintained to our guidelines, and subject to normal wear, that prove defective, will be replaced without cost. Color matching cannot be guaranteed and replacement labor is not included. Contact Us Request a Design Catalog
