Five Creative Ways to Use Patio Pavers

Patio PaverPatio pavers can help make building a patio an easy DIY job.  You won’t need experience with mixing and laying concrete, nor will you require carpentry skills to get the job done.  Patio pavers make it so that anyone with a strong back and a bit of creativity can construct an attractive and functional patio.  That said, patio pavers don’t need to be used to actually create a patio – there are other things that can be done with them as well.  To inspire your project we’ve put together a list of five creative ways to use patio pavers.

 

Build A Pathway

Patio pavers can be used to make a great pathway.  Not only will it allow you to get from one part of the space to another without having to tread in grass or dirt, it can provide a line that draws the eye.  Patio pavers can create a feeling of movement without any actual movement taking place.

 

Line An Existing Pathway

If you already have a pathway or sidewalk, but it looks a little plain, using some nice looking patio pavers to create a border can create depth and bring some life to an otherwise boring pathway.  Often this is done with small brick-like pavers, but depending on the size of your space, any visually appealing patio pavers can be used.

 

Define A Separate Space

Laying down a few patio paving stones can create a visual separation between various parts of a space.  Sometimes this is done with a fence or stonework, but by using patio pavers, there’s no obstruction.  This works well in small spaces where there may not be enough room for a more imposing structure.

 

Create A Fire Pit

By stacking and arranging a bunch of patio pavers you can create a fire pit that’s both functional and beautiful.  The pavers can be used to create both the base and the borders of the pit.  This will ensure the fire remains contained and doesn’t cause any damage to the ground below.

 

Edge Your Garden

Edging around a garden can be done for visual appeal, but it can also provide utility as well.  Edging a garden prevents grasses and weeds from invading the garden bed.  It can also provide a barrier against pests such as slugs and snails.  Protect your garden while also providing a decorative accent.
