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.
Another great application for concrete is in building driveways. Many people aren’t too happy with the idea of pavers, thinking that they are more expensive or less durable than a poured concrete driveway. In fact, quite the opposite is true because by using pavers and sand, not only is it easier to maintain your driveway, it is also more cost effective.
A block building that is concrete will be more cost effective than a home using bricks but will offer the same level of energy efficiency. This is especially important in Australia’s hot climate since these blocks tend to keep interiors cooler for longer, by trapping the cool air inside. This means that you will save a bundle on power consumption and heating, as the mass of the blocks not only keeps heat out during summer, but retains heat indoors for longer during winter.
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.
