achieve ornamental designs in sidewalks and decks by specifying
paver blocks. There are a myriad of designs that can be achieved,
so more planning is involved than with a regular concrete walkway.
A designer can research block sizes on the Internet or by requesting
a catalog from a manufacturer of these stones.
In a framed
area, a firm stone bed is laid and compacted, followed by a layer
of fine and clean sand. The stone layer will want to have a level
to check their progress. In the final stage, more sand is swept
over the blocks to fill the gaps between the stones.
