Step one is knowing the exact dimensions of the area you want to pave.
Using a tape measure and string, paper and pencil, measure out your area and write down the measurements. We recommend doing this multiple times to make sure it’s accurate.
Once you have measured your area, you can start to draw up your plan. The quantity of the materials needed for the paving job depends upon the total area to be paved.
The area is calculated by measuring the width and length of the paving site.
Depending on the shape of the area, this calculation can be very straightforward or a bit more complicated.
When calculating the amount of pavers you’ll need, we recommend adding on an additional 5% to take into consideration any breakage or wastage. This will ensure you have enough to complete your project and ensure colour consistency.
All concrete pavers will fade over time when exposed to direct sunlight.
To maintain and enhance their colour, we highly recommend sealing your pavers.
When buying pavers, we recommend ordering everything you’ll need for your project at once to ensure colour consistency, as colours can vary within and between batches.
If you’ve ordered different colours for your project, blending them is important to make sure it all flows together. For the best colour blending results, be sure to take pavers evenly from various batches as you lay.
