Patio Pavers | Material
The material you choose will largely depend on the look you are trying to achieve. Stone works well with nearly any type of landscape, and is durable as well. Brick could be a better choice for a cottage-style garden, while wood pavers placed near a deck might make the area flow more seamlessly. Tile provides a formal appearance, which would make it perfect for use in an outdoor kitchen.
There are some disadvantages to each type of material. If the exterior of your home is brick, it could be difficult to find pavers that match this surface exactly. Tile can become slippery when wet, so you may want to avoid it if you’ll be walking on it often. Concrete could need to be painted or stained to keep it from appearing too bland. Wood can be subject to rotting and damage from insects, which is something you don’t have to worry about with other materials.
