Paving Patterns
Block Paving can be laid in several different formats. When choosing block paving patterns, consideration should begiven to load bearing areas such as driveways or parking areas. These applications require block paving to be laid in an inter-locking pattern for maximum strength and wear.

Block Paving Designs
Block paving designs are unlimited. Each type of block paving stone or brick is available in a range of complimentary colours and textures. By rotating the block in a different direction, it can appear a different shade of colour. With the addition of octants or circles, paving features can be created. This can be complimented with the use of kerbs and edgings to create beautiful block paving designs and patterns.

Herringbone Paving Patterns
Herringbone paving patterns are constructed from 2:1 blocks, eg: Marshalls Driveline 50. This means the bricks are twice as long as they are wide. Interlocked and laid as 90 degree herringbone or 45 degree herringbone. The layout can be enhanced with subtle colour changes in blocks and or the use of pattern features such as circular or octant paving. 45 degree extended herringbone is generally used on larger areas to enhance the block paving pattern aesthetics.

Stretcher Bond & Basket Weave Paving Patterns
Stretcher bond and basket weave paving patterns are used for pathways or patio areas with light foot traffic. These block paving patterns can be combined with octant and circle features to create beautiful designs.
