Drives, parkings and pavements: These are usually hard surfaces like tarmac or paving blocks. They provide access and circulation within the compound. Pavements are good for training pedestrians on what routes to follow inside the compound. This will prevent trampling of areas like landscaped lawns.
The manufacture of concrete paving blocks is a highly specialised process. Concrete pavers need to be dimensionally accurate and meet the required compressive strengths and abrasion resistance standards. Product should ideally be sourced from a SABS accredited manufacturer. (SABS 1058 sets out the standards and tolerances for concrete paving blocks.
Landscape and Flower gardens: Landscaping can be viewed as dressing to the compound. It completes the picture. Variety is the secret here. Having flowers that blossom at different times of the year will ensure that the compound is in colour all year round. Gazebos and Porches: These are resting areas in the compound. They come in a great variety of designs to suit varying needs.
If you are looking to create the best look possible you may want to go with something softer and more malleable that you can eventually replace when it goes out of style. If you are going for function you will want something harder that will last and not take a lot of damage from constant use or weight. Before you purchase your stone it is a good idea to measure the dimensions you need beforehand and then purchase the stone from your local masonry supply. Always get a few extra plates in case you make a mistake or one breaks in transit. If there are broken paving stones delivered you can always return them.
