Brick Pavers in Melbourne

20 Nov

Brick pavers are one of the easiest ways of enhancing the look of your gardens and grounds. These pavers are basically pieces of brick which are cut in different shapes so that when they are all laid out they make an appealing design. They are used for pavements, driveways, walkways, patios, pool area and even sometimes on your balcony. These pavers come in different colours as well as materials to give maximum value for your money.

Brick paving has been done for centuries to beautify and enhance the look of buildings, homes and even palaces. This has in a way worked to our advantage as today we have years and years of design templates to refer to for designs that will suit our homes and buildings. Today brick paving is not only about laying bricks in an appealing design but has become an integral part of building construction in Australia and has inspired many to become experts in this field. Today anyone wanting brick paving has to make sure it is a marriage between design, colour, and aesthetics as well as make use of the latest technologies that have made an impact on the brick paving industry all across Australia.

Well if you are beginning your research on different brick paving designs and styles then here is a start to your search.

Some common brick paving designs that you will come across are:

-Cobblestone

-Cambridge Pavers

-Brick Pavers

-Stone Pavers

-Flagstone Pavers

-Travertine Pavers

-Rubber Pavers

-Concrete Pavers

Here are some of the most used paver patterns which are used to make brilliant designs for both residential and commercial properties as well.

-Basket Weave

-Herringbone Pattern

-Stacked Pattern

-Diamond Pattern

-Spanish Style

-Whirling Pattern

-Circular Pavers Pattern

-Running Bond Pattern

-Stretcher Pattern

-Random Mix

-Pin Wheel Pattern

if you are looking to change the look of your garden, grounds, backyard or your entry way then the fastest way is to install brick pavers. Many opt to do this job themselves so all we would suggest is that you do your research well and make sure the installation process is followed to the “T” so that there is no water seepage and damage to the pavers before time. Brick pavers are relatively easy to maintain as all they need is to be given a good scrub and make sure they are moss free especially after the rainy season. Alternatively you could use the services of a professional brick laying service. You will find many brick pavers associated with building construction companies in Australia.

Some other things to keep in mind when finalizing on your designs and choice of pavers are:

  • If you are thinking of using pavers for the terrace, patio, courtyards, poolside, walkways, or even garden paths then you can use most of the styles and designs including the herringbone pattern as they are not subjected to very heavy load or constant wear and tear.
  • As said above these areas are generally not prone to very heavy load and so most designs are applicable, but for areas that are prone to heavy loads like driveways then the traditional pattern you can go with is the herringbone design as in this design the weight is equally distributed over the bricks which avoids excessive wear and tear.
  • For your garden you can use the pin wheel designs as this allows for a particular are to be highlighted as the pin wheel makes concentric circles with a center point. Here you can place a garden set, a fountain, or even a statue.

So hopefully this was some helpful information and next when you are choosing your brick paving design with your local building construction company then you will have done your research…so happy paving.
