About Precast Concrete Pavers

Precast Concrete Pavers are a mixture containing cement and sand. They are processed and manufactured in many factories around the world. They are usually produced in large block forms.

One of the most popular paving patterns produced in block form is the brick paver pattern, which is most commonly used on driveways, patios and walkways.

Precast Concrete Pavers are sometimes used on driveways because normal brick pavers:

  • Move out of place.
  • Grow weeds between the joints.
  • Spilt and crack when heavy vehicular traffic passes through many times a day.

To suit your own individual style and to be creative with the design, you have a wide selection of colors, patterns, shapes, and sizes.

Precast Concrete Pavers can be colored in any type of shade you desire. They are ideal for any landscape project, whether it is a paved courtyard, patio, structure around your garden, or a private walkway. Two types of concrete coloring processes are; powdered dye and liquid staining, both commonly used today.

Types of Patterns

Precast Concrete Pavers

Three common patterns used today are herringbone, parquet, and running bond.

Brick patterns like running bond cannot be produced in circular or winding patterns, because they are made in block forms with the pattern already existing on the cement.

If you want to create your own exclusive patterns, Precast Concrete Pavers are available to be cut to size and shape. This is a great advantage.


The herringbone pattern consists of rectangular pavers, where one is laid on a 90 degree angel and the next being laid flat. This creates an irregular pattern. This pattern can commonly be used on driveways, barbeque areas in the back yard or edge’s for your garden.

Running Bond brick

The running bond brick pattern consists of rectangular pavers lay together side by side. It is one of the easiest and common pattern used today and can be seen just about everywhere. Cutting the blocks for this pattern helps to ease the installation.
