Pavers fit into a Southern California home's odd-shaped outdoor area, which also needed privacy from nearby restaurants. This coastal home had an available landscape area of about 1,100 square feet. The award-winning design by Grounded Modern Landscape Architecture captured as much useable outdoor living space as possible.
Pavers flow from a set of stairs to the patio of a home in the southeast U.S. The materials manufactured by Georgia Masonry Supply include a tumbled paver called Country Manor and Mega Arbel pavers with a natural flagstone appearance.
This patio feels more like a courtyard, surrounded as it is on two sides by the house. Checkerboard grass-and-paver "flooring" gives the sense an outdoor room, while the fire pit provides warmth and a gathering spot on cool evenings.
This idyllic backyard hideaway in Brooklyn by Statile & Todd combines nature and contemporary design in a patio that utilizes rectilinear stone (Mica Schist pavers) and an infill of barn red dust with a stabilizing agent.
To help this outdoor space look more cohesive, the landscape architects continued the stone pavers from the upper deck to the lower patio. Meanwhile, touches of greenery enhance the yard's natural beauty.
The polygon-shaped pool includes two mini waterfalls and a large wet deck for additional lounging space. Grass between the square pavers creates an intricate thatched design that mirrors the geometric shape of the pool.
A combination of uplighting and downlighting to highlight architectural and planting features along with a glowing fire pit creates a cosy, intimate effect in this patio design from Falling Waters Landscape featuring acid washed concrete pavers.
An excellent way to create a sturdy, level underfoot surface in courtyards, patios or porches is with brick pavers. This classic look mixes perfectly with all different styles of architecture and decor. To install pavers, the exterior area must first be leveled and then a thin layer of sand is laid before the bricks are put in place. Once all bricks are set, another layer of sand is poured on top to fill the gaps and keep the bricks from shifting.
