This is something you need to know before starting your next paving project!
It’s no secret that natural high quality clay pavers are becoming more and more popular than ever. People have grown tired of bland, characterless cement and other plain coloured materials covering their driveways and surrounding their homes. They add no character to the property and can even end up costing home owners when it comes time to sell as the market is now more in tune than ever with: QUALITY OVER QUANTITY.
Gone are the days where close-enough is good enough, it’s a buyers market and they have every right to be picky. Buyers are looking for homes which require less maintenance and will stand the test of time. The problem with using inferior products is you generally get an inferior result. They crack, fade, erode and in some cases even become unsafe.
But there is good news!
The use of clay pavers is back and people are getting very creative with their designs and producing stunning, long-lasting results which look amazing and stand the test of time. One way which this is being done is by:
LAYING PAVERS ON-EDGE instead of laying flat!
Traditionally pavers are laid one way, on their largest flat side and then positioned and cut to form a large range of patterns. What is becoming more common now is that homeowners and people building houses are asking themselves the question: “What can I do to stand out from the crowd?” Well one way to certainly do that is by getting creative and choosing to lay pavers on edge instead of flat!
