There are virtually no limits when selecting materials for your hardscape designs, but while there are benefits to poured concrete slabs and charming stones, concrete pavers have proven themselves a superior choice. They offer the natural aesthetic of stone, while retaining the structural strength and density of concrete. Here are a few concrete pavers from Unilock that showcase the practical and aesthetic advantages of this material.
Versatile Town Hall pavers
Town Hall pavers come in a variety of versatile shades, including rich browns such as Old Oak and Burnt Clay, which are known to create striking contrasts when paired with ash-colored materials such as Almond Grove Camelot pavers. These earthy pavers are also great candidates for walkways that blend into the surrounding garden, as their surfaces echo the shades within mulch beds and fertile soil. Town Hall pavers are narrow, uniform and make great candidates for neat, subtle edging – a paving barrier that prevents plant beds from growing out onto adjacent pathways.
The Burnt Clay color variation complements the warmth of Autumn Sunset Umbriano pavers, a combination which is accentuated by any greenery beyond the edging. Town Hall pavers can be laid in a variety of intricate patterns, from herringbone to basket weave designs. These paver patterns add visual depth and variety to surfaces, while structural strength is created by the flush fit and interlocking patterns allowed by the precision cast shapes. In addition to their combined strength, Town Hall pavers are individually strong, with a strength up to four times greater than that of poured concrete.
Sophisticated Umbriano pavers
Umbriano pavers add to your home’s curb appeal, complement its architecture and ensure your safety with their non-slip surfaces. These pavers come in a range of versatile shades that are not only elegant, but can also be used to complement a variety of architectural styles. Using large format pavers to shape a walkway or patio can result in a modern, sophisticated design while smaller pavers tend to create more informal paths that appear to have materialized naturally. The geometry, clean lines and fine surface textures of Unilock Umbriano pavers help to achieve an essence of contemporary elegance. Framing a sleek Umbriano patio with abundant plant life creates a pleasant contrast between the uniformity of pavers and the spontaneous shapes within nature. Umbriano pavers bear a unique, speckled surface formed by the random dispersion of color and granite particles. The color variation Summer Wheat can add the luxurious appearance of granite to your patio for a fraction of the price and is a popular choice for patios alongside vibrant green landscapes or lawns.
Classic Courtstone pavers
The classic European appearance of Courtstone pavers can add a charming, time-worn touch to rustic patios and walkways. They are popular candidates for meandering, flowing paths through abundantly green landscapes as their irregular surfaces accent the spontaneous shapes and colors within nature. The pleasant variety of shades available, from dark Basalt to Pebble Taupe, promises to complement an even wider variety of landscape designs. These color variations can also be paired with different shades of jointing sand, either a common shade that is echoed throughout the landscape or one that creates a pleasant contrast against the cobblestones. A large expanse of Basalt Courtstone pavers can be lightened and enhanced by their contrast against tan colored sand.
Courtstone pavers can also be used to create borders that neatly frame a walkway for a ‘finished’ look. These small accent pavers can also be used to make certain parts of a patio look different, indicating that a visitor has arrived at a ‘destination’. Destinations can include benches, water features or outdoor rooms designated for specific purposes such as dining or cooking.
Textured Richcliff pavers
Richcliff pavers are one of the most vehicle and pedestrian friendly candidates for a driveway or patio, as they bear the unbeatable durability of concrete and textured, non-slip finishes. These surface textures are cast from molds modeled from real natural stone using Unilock Reala Surface Technology to effectively imitate the timeless beauty of flagstone. The elegant surfaces and sleek edges that Richcliff pavers bear add modern sophistication to virtually any outdoor room. Courtstone and Copthorne pavers are popular accents to Richcliff pavers and create a striking impact. Their neutral or earthy brown tones and the powerful black cobblestones pair well with the blue-gray hues within Richcliff pavers and can be used to create borders or motifs that break up the paved area.
