Why Choose PATTERNED CONCRETE® Instead of Paving Stones

If you are interested in sprucing up the aesthetics of your driveway, patio or walkway, you'll have your choice between using pattern concrete or paving stones. While both would definitely be an improvement over plain asphalt, which one promises a better investment? Let’s take a look at the differences to see which one provides better value for the money.

Paving Stones

The number one complaint with paving stones are the gaps that occur between them and the weeds that manage to make their way through these gaps. It’s difficult to get them under control once these weeds rear their ugly heads and you may find that you’re spending a lot of your precious summer time trying to keep them under control. Some determined weeds have even been known to make their way through landscaping cloth.

Paving stones are also labour-intensive to install so if you are getting them put in by a professional you can count on spending more for the labour costs. These stones also tend to become loose over time and will require further maintenance in the future.


You won’t have to fight with any pesky weeds when you install stamped concrete in your driveway, patio or along your walkway. Less maintenance means more time to spend with your family and neighbours and more time at the barbecue. As well, you won’t have to worry about the weeds breaking their way through any gaps while you’re on holidays.

PATTERNED CONCRETE® lays flat and stays flat so you won’t have to worry about maintenance costs later on. This type of driveway solution also comes in a number of different textures so that you can put your own signature on your outdoor home decor.
