Choosing patio pavers is a fun process, but it can also be a little intimidating if you’re undertaking your first landscape renovation. Some direction could be useful in helping you sift through the many available options. To help you narrow your choices, here are considerations to make before choosing your patio pavers in Brick, NJ.
Low-Maintenance Patio Pavers
One important question to ask is how you’ll be using the patio surface and any maintenance requirements that you are willing or not willing to address: Outdoor kitchens, for example, benefit from patio pavers that resist stains from acidic condiments and grease.
Choose Unilock pavers infused with EasyClean stain resistance for a busy family-oriented patio. Instead of a surface sealant, this sealant is integrated into the pavers themselves, which means it won’t wear off over time—it’s as part of the paver as the paver color. EasyClean technology is an effective way to protect pavers in high-traffic areas such as outdoor kitchens and pool decks. Just wipe off spills and you will not have to worry about staining.
Bristol Valley pavers from Unilock are inspired by flagstone. This easygoing paver could be a great choice for a patio that blends into the natural surroundings. Bristol Valley pavers feature a subtle surface texture that is barefoot-friendly for use on your patio and pool deck, and the random bundles of moderately sized units allow for a variety of laying patterns.
Elegant spaces can be just as low-maintenance as relaxed spaces. Umbriano pavers from Unilock are inspired by natural granite. As sophisticated as these pavers are, you will not have to fuss over them. They’re popular pavers for pool decks, outdoor kitchens, and busy family patios thanks to EasyClean.
Patio Pavers That Will Stand the Test of Time
While you want your patio to have a contemporary look, it’s a good idea to choose pavers that will stand the test of time, no matter what trends come and go.
You can’t go wrong with the look of brick pavers, which work with any style home. You have more color choices than variations of reddish clay, and more finishes thanks to concrete technology.

Mattoni pavers are long and slender—and like Artline, a very modern take on traditional brick with a contemporary color palette and an antiqued finish that would give your patio a timeworn appearance. The slender shape of Mattoni pavers can be ideal for curved applications such as romantic garden paths, for patios that feature the classic herringbone pattern, or for custom artistic inlays.
