Whilst the Romans may have invented the concept of interlocking pavers the practice can be traced back to Egyptians paving the roads leading to the pyramids. Block paving can be found across the world and ranges from a simple driveway or path to shopping centers and airports. Over the past 40 years there has been a huge growth in block paving domestically as the price of the materials has reduced making it a much more affordable option.

The most common blocks are molded from concrete in a handful of sizes and thicknesses and come in many different colours. Once you have decided on the colour and the size, it only remains to choose the pattern. Below are some examples to help you choose. Each of these can also have a single or double border in a different colour.
