Description

Concrete pavers are one of the hottest pavements around homes, commercial buildings, and urban spaces. Designers know that the selection of pavement patterns and colors have a big influence on the character of these places. In this book, you'll learn the design vocabulary of basic paving patterns and progress to more intricate variations. Each of the 300-plus color photos demonstrates how specific patterns, colors, and textures enhance every outdoor environment - including patios, walkways, drives, and grand urban plazas. Some of the best projects from across North America illustrate this book. Written for landscape architects, architects, contractors, and homeowners alike, this is the design handbook for concrete pavers. Besides presenting a wealth of ideas, the book will enrich and build your design vocabulary and pattern language using concrete pavers.
