Paving Laying Patterns

Paving laying patterns depend on different factors.

Besides the practical purpose of the paving, there is also the appearance of the paved area to consider.

The paving laying patterns on this page are the most commonly used.

These form the the basic layout, but a creative twist makes for not only interesting, but also unique, designs.

Combining two different types of pavers adds to the overall look of the paving.

Use one type of paver as an inlay into the main body of the paving for a stylish look.
