There are several different block paving patterns to choose from, each offering a unique look and feel to your driveway, patio or walkway. Here are some popular options:
Herringbone paving pattern: This is one of the most popular block paving patterns, consisting of interlocking rectangular blocks laid at a 45-degree angle to create a zigzag effect. It is a classic and traditional look that is both strong and durable.
Stretcher bond pattern: This pattern involves laying the rectangular blocks in a straight line, creating a sleek and contemporary look.
Basketweave pattern: In this pattern, rectangular blocks are laid in pairs at right angles to each other, creating a woven effect. This pattern is ideal for creating a classic and timeless look that is easy to maintain.
Circle pattern: A circle pattern is created by arranging blocks in a circular formation, often with a central feature such as a fountain or statue. This pattern is ideal for creating a focal point in your garden or outdoor space.
Running bond pattern: This pattern involves laying the blocks in a staggered formation, with each row offset by half a block. This creates a more organic and natural look that is perfect for curved or irregularly-shaped areas.
Random pattern: A random pattern involves using blocks of different sizes and shapes to create a more organic and natural look. This pattern is ideal for creating a more informal and relaxed feel to your outdoor space.
Diamond pattern: This pattern involves laying rectangular blocks at a 45-degree angle to create a diamond shape. This pattern is ideal for creating a unique and eye-catching look.
