The modern paving stone system uses precision manufactured cast concrete interlocking stones. With billions of square feet installed annually around the world, the ingenious pavement of the ancient world has been translated into the ultimate paving solution for the present. Europe has completely adopted the look and durability of paving stones.
Modern paving stones are made from concrete or clay, and are set in sand, out-performing mortar set stones and brick in durability, strength and flexibility (the ability to resist cracking). Pavers are stronger than brick, are earthquake resistant, and come in a variety of shapes and colors to create beautiful landscape designs for your patio, driveway or walkway.
These are just some of the reasons more and more homeowners today make good use of paving stones.
