A walkway should be welcoming. A warm welcome, however, does not come across with a dull, poured concrete walkway, especially one that’s cracked with weeds showing. If you’re considering an upgrade that will boost curb appeal, reduce maintenance, and let you express your creativity, you’ll want to consider the many reasons to choose Copthorne walkway pavers for your Elmont, NY, landscape.

Tapping European Appeal
Copthorne pavers from Unilock give you the timeless look of European street pavers, but with a modern twist. These brick-style pavers give you the rich and timeworn appearance of any paver you’d see in the Old World, but because they’re made of extremely durable concrete, they are long-lasting, colorfast, and you can use them anywhere throughout your landscape for a unified look.
Beauty in Every Paver
Part of the reason Copthorne pavers stand out is Reala Surface Technology from Unilock. In the past, concrete pavers were cast using a very limited number of molds. This meant that repeating patterns were very obvious. Reala Surface Technology gives each paver an ultra-realistic look that is cast from many real European brick pavers. Your walkway pavers will have the unique old-brick character you’re looking for, but in a modern product that delivers on functionality.
Another technology that could affect why you may fall in love with Copthorne pavers is Ultima Concrete Technology, also exclusive to Unilock. Since Copthorne pavers are designed to be used in any residential application including driveways, they have to be durable and strong enough to handle the heaviest vehicular loads without shifting or cracking—including fully loaded moving trucks or a hot tub delivery. This manufacturing process results in pavers with up to four times the compressive strength of poured concrete. Of course, your walkway isn’t going to see anything but foot traffic, but you will have the peace of mind knowing that your Copthorne pavers will never crack like poured concrete.
Beyond the functional benefits, beauty plays a significant role in choosing Copthorne pavers. A walkway made with Copthorne pavers is nothing short of magical. The more delicate proportions of this paver mean that you can design curved walkways without the need for onsite cutting.
Copthorne colors give you more modern options than the classic “brick red.” This is especially welcome if you have a more contemporary home. Burgundy Red, Burnt Clay and Old Oak are the more classic colors, but you also have the choice of Basalt and Steel Blue, which can be used on their own or as stunning accents and borders. To add dimension to your walkway, consider mixing several colors: for example, to achieve a warm and richly textured walkway, mix Burgundy Red, Burnt Clay, and Old Oak; to achieve a cooler look that tones down the reds, mix Steel Blue, Burgundy Red, and Burnt Clay. On its own, Basalt makes a stunning walkway especially suited to more modern applications that need texture but take brick out of the realm of traditional.
As versatile and beautiful as they are on horizontal surfaces (walkways, patios and driveways), Copthorne pavers are also a popular choice for complementing walls, columns, outdoor kitchen facades, or outdoor fireplaces.
