Brick patio designs – While generally connected to a house or pool, a patio can simply be any paved area near your home where you can gather. When you decide to build a terrace, choose one of several paving materials based on how you want the terrace to look. Asphalt pavers are stones, concrete or bricks that have been carved into a thick block. Most tiles are cut into a rectangular shape, but you will also find square, round and hexagonal varieties.
Asphalt pavers give your patio a smooth and uniform look that will go well with any modern courtyard style. You can just put pavers next to each other, but you are also arranging tiles in different patterns, such as herringbone or a circular pattern. Stone gives the patio a more natural look that will interfere with the surrounding natural elements of your yard.
The stone can come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, so you will be able to further specify exactly how your terrace will look. The stone can come either as tile, flat pieces of rough edge rock that will have a small gap between each piece when installed, or as tiles that have cut edges and want pieces as close as you want.
