Another thing that should be a big selling point that most people don’t actually think about when they’re looking for outdoor materials is how easy it is to clean. You won’t be mopping your patio any time soon, so you need something that will come clean with the hose when the birds dive bomb your brand new patio, or when someone drops a bowl of dip onto it. Slate is not very porous, especially after it has been waterproofed, so you won’t have to scrub for any normal messes.
Another advantage to the clay brick pavers is the non-slip, skid proof texture they offer. The surface of these bricks is very abrasive and very good for wet areas that get lots of traffic. These would be places like pools and pathways. Many public areas use them for pedestrian walkways. And they can be used immediately after being put in place. No waiting time for setting up like some of the other applications. Paving slabs and paver applications can be a real asset for your landscaping needs, and can be the finishing touch you are looking for that makes your yard or garden look great.
Slate is a material that needs to be cut and chipped into size either by hand, or by machinery, and sometimes there is a significant amount of waste involved in the process. One of the biggest perpetrators seems to be large paving slabs – due to their large size, and particular shapes, there are a lot of large cuts involved in their manufacturing. There are many ways that the slate waste is used, but I’m only going to list three, as I don’t want this post to get too long.
Most homemakers prefer to use the pre-made slabs. The simple reason why people choose these slabs is because they are less expensive and yet maintain the same beauty quotient. Also the maintenance of these paving slabs is much simpler and easier. The main disadvantages of using concrete are because they chip and crack. The other major disadvantage of using concrete is the due to the ability of concrete to stain easily. With bust schedules and lifestyles people prefer easy to maintain gardens.
