CREATIVE WAYS TO USE CLAY PAVERS TO MAKE YOUR OUTDOOR AREAS SHINE AND ADD VALUE TO YOUR HOME.
Australians love spending time outside. It’s why we put so much effort into our front and back yards. Creating beautiful outdoor settings at home gives homeowners personal space to relax and entertain.
Homeowners can use clay pavers to create outdoor spaces that match the natural beauty of the Australian landscape. And their durability, sustainability, and low maintenance make them ideal for landscaping.It’s also worth noting that clay pavers are also very easy to work with. So, whether you are a DIY superstar or just starting out, clay pavers are great products for your next DIY project.
Why use clay pavers?
There are three key reasons to choose clay pavers to enhance your outdoor spaces – flexibility, versatility, and sustainability. Together, they make a strong case for clay pavers.
Clay pavers offer design flexibility and aesthetic beauty that other materials don't. Clay bricks and pavers can be laid in many patterns, from the herringbone pattern to the simple running bond pattern. They can even be laid in a basketweave pattern, which sets pairs of bricks at 90 degrees to each other.
Unlike concrete pavers, clay pavers don’t need as much cleaning and maintenance. They also keep their colour for longer.
VersatilityFired clay products’ colour and strength last a lifetime. Clay pavers are a great investment for your landscaping, but they also provide other benefits. They are great for driveways, especially in a herringbone pattern, which offers more stability. This means they can be integrated into your landscape design with your driveway.
Sustainability is another key reason to include clay pavers in your landscaping. Clay pavers are made with natural materials such as clay, sand, and shale. So, they are not only eco-friendly, but can also be cleaned and reused in other areas of your home.
“Whether you are a DIY superstar or just starting out, clay pavers are great products for your next DIY project.”
Clay pavers can also be lifted from their position, stockpiled, and then reused in a new landscape project. They can even be laid in an entirely new pattern by DIY homeowners who enjoy changing their landscape from time to time.
Three ways to create the wow factor using clay pavers
If you’re interested in using clay pavers in your next outdoor DIY project, here are three easy ways to get started.
Let nature inspire the space
With natural colours and textures popular choices, homeowners are embracing simple outdoor styles. Celebrating the authentic Australian environment by using eco-friendly products is on trend. A grounded and naturally authentic coloured paver will help you achieve a timeless space for years to come.
From the inside out
Using brick and pavers indoors is the perfect way to blur the lines between spaces and connect the inside and outside of your home. This is helpful for urban homes with smaller backyards, where brick can be used to extend indoor living spaces outside. Doing so creates a sense of space and improves the functionality of the home.
Bricks and pavers present a fantastic opportunity to make a style statement. A herringbone pattern creates a sophisticated or classic look, while a basketweave pattern gives any space a modern look.
Experimenting with two colours is also increasing in popularity. More homeowners are exploring the use of two tones in their outdoor spaces by creating a border with a contrasting colour. Many projects now use bricks as pavers, which opens up an even wider variety of colours, shapes, and textures for your landscape.
