Concrete pavers are versatile because they come in many different styles and colors. By mixing and matching colors and shapes, you can create a one-of-a-kind patio, walkway or driveway. While it’s possible to set the pavers in mortar or concrete, many are set on a bed of compacted gravel and sand. This process makes the pavers a favorite of do-it-yourselfers.
The wide variety of pavers means you can create patterns in your walkway or driveways. Some pavers have smooth edges, while others have tongue-and-groove design that make them interlocking. When creating a walkway or patio with pavers, you can cut the pavers to fit your pattern using a wet saw with a diamond blade.
