There is a large range of patterns, colours and styles available when it comes to paving. Here are some examples of the types and styles available on the market right now.
VARIOUS STYLES OF PAVING PATTERNS
CIRCULAR PAVING PATTERNS
Laid in circular rows to form its namesake, the circular pattern is most often used for driveways and patios as a form of breaking up a large open area or to give a specific area a function. For example, an area where you would sit or put your table and chairs on. Outside of it can be any form of surface as it joins in beautifully with all types of paving, imprint, gravel or tarmac.
HERRINGBONE PAVING 45° / 90°
This is a popular choice for paving. Laying the paving in opposite directions at either a 45 or 90 degree angle will create a “V” shape that locks solid in position making it suitable for high traffic areas like walkways, driveways and patios. Its popular for its lasting strength. As your Dublin paving contractor of choice, we’ll provide you with a free estimate to get the process started today.
This interesting design uses vertical and horizontal pairs for a vintage look and feel that parallel the namesake. The style mimics old fashioned landscaping and there is no need for cutting any of the interlocking paving used. A great way to make your outdoor patio more interesting, the pattern is also great for partial use in driveway design since it can bring an unusual look to it.
Stretcher is a simple, visually effective and easy method to install, the paving is laid side by side in a linear pattern that makes smaller areas appear larger. This style of paving looks beautiful on curved areas or on a pathway. However we don’t recommend it on a high traffic area like a driveway because it is not interlocking and can be prone to movement especially on the edges.
RANDOM PAVING PATTERN
This beautiful design is characterized by using cobble stones or paving blocks that are cut to different specifications. The resulting random series of different lengths fit together in an eye catching way which is perfect for driveway paving, patio paving and other areas where you want to combine the beauty and durability of your paving stones.
Diamond shape patterns are often inserted inside other types of block paving. This can be used to break up an area of paving or to make it stand out. It can be used in wide variety of ways to enhance the overall look of your patio or driveway. The pattern itself can be laid in a variety of sizes and colours to further enhance any paving.
