It is a great idea to lay the clay bricks in a circular fashion in your lawn. Make sure you include alternating layers to ensure stability and perspective. This must go on until the pavement ends near grass. To prevent cracking, finish the pavement two to three feet away from where the grass starts. Place treated lumber posts just inside the circular format and connect the two with a separate, smaller beam to create something like a pergola. Make sure you do this with the help of a paving contractor in Perth.

Most of the people will ask why would they consider opting for clay bricks when this can be done easily with any other material like concrete, tiles, etc. Here is a quick guide of the unique reasons to consider brick pavers.

Stain Resistant

A common problem with concrete and tiles is that they easily attract stains. Oil and other leaking fluids from your vehicles can permanently stain your concrete driveway. Brick, on the other hand, is generally less prone to staining. Moreover, should a section of your designed walkway becomes stained, you can easily replace the brick paver to retain the new look once again.

Repairs on brick pavers are much simpler. The most common problem with concrete is that over time, they can become cracked, pitted, and chipped. Fixing these problems often becomes a troublesome consideration. Sometimes, the entire area needs to be replaced which is not only a pain, but extremely expensive. With brick paver, however, each paver is individual, and can be replaced if they become damaged, which makes them a more cost-effective option in the long run.

Slip resistant

Brick Pavers are more slip resistant

Another problem with concrete or tiles is that they can be fairly slippery when wet, and can be dangerous to walk on. Brick pavers are more slip resistant due to their naturally textured and abrasive surface. Therefore, you can create great designs in the pool area without caring about getting wet.

Brick pavers create a stable, safe surface to walk on for every climatic condition thus, making your landscaping ideas reach a different perspective.
