Transform Your Space with Paver Patterns
Update Your Walkway, Driveway or Patio with a Unique Paver Pattern
When you envision your outdoor living space, chances are you have a very specific look and feel that you want to convey. One of the easiest ways to give your property a unique stamp is through the laying pattern of your pavement surface. Before you buy your materials or begin to work on your paver patio design, make sure to review local building codes and local regulations to see if there are any requirements you need to follow. A professional contractor can help you navigate these and other logistics to ensure your home improvement project goes smoothly.
4 Types of Paver Patterns
When designing your paver patio, there are a number of options to consider with regard to the laying patterns. From modular shapes to more traditional patterns, results will vary depending upon what kind of paver you choose. If you are feeling ambitious, you can even combine patterns for a truly one-of-a-kind design.
Read on to discover a few common examples of paver laying patterns to help you with your final design decision:
- Running Bond: One of the most common paver patterns used by homeowners today is running bond. It is a straightforward pattern that is easy to install and uses the least amount of resources in comparison to other patterns. To create the pattern, pavers are laid down in rows that are run in the same direction. Laying paver down this way can create the illusion of a longer or wider patio depending on the direction of installation. This is a perfect choice for smaller areas and for homeowners who want to draw attention to the architecture of their home.
- Herringbone: A herringbone pattern is where rectangular pavers are laid in a zigzag pattern that creates a “V” shape. It is often used in large to medium sized areas but will add character to any space. This pattern is recognized for its durability and will remain strong under heavy furniture or high traffic areas.
- Basket Weave: Rectangular blocks are used to create this unique block design. Pavers alternate between vertical and horizontal pairs to create an eye-catching effect. If you want to get really creative, try using contrasting colors. This pattern is also extremely strong and durable.
- Circular: To create the circular pattern, pavers are laid down in a circular formation. The small spaces in-between the pavers can be easily filled with sand or mortar. This pattern works best when it is mixed with other patterns and full circles don’t have to be created. For instance, you can use this technique to create half or even a quarter of a circle pattern.
