Pavers are resistant to spalling - flaking caused by moisture and cold. Modular bricks are even better and are recommended in areas that will be traveled by heavy vehicles.

The use of concrete pavers, often referred to as paving stones, is growing rapidly on both commercial and residential construction projects. Pavers interlock together to form a patterned surface which can be put into service immediately. Pavers are manufactured in various textures and colors. A big benefit of pavers is that they can be removed and re-installed, which reduces future service interruptions.

Wood is supported with deep-driven stakes; brick should be set in a solid foundation to keep the sand and gravel from spreading below the pavers.
