These areas usually feature spaces for entertaining friends and family while grilling, dining, eating and relaxing. That often means room for a patio, a grill, a sink or a fireplace. Some think of it as adding a family room without the roof.
For many, the building technique of choice when creating these spaces calls for using segmental concrete paving.
This technique employs interlocking units-called concrete pavers-that are strong, durable and are growing in popularity worldwide.
Often used in walkways, patios, plazas and historic restoration projects, pavers are manufactured in a variety of shapes, textures and colors and can be easily removed and reinstalled.

One kind of home-improvement project where pavers are increasingly being used is a raised patio. These patios are known for their durability and can create a new sense of space in a yard, particularly when extended to meet an existing deck.
Such spaces can be used as an outdoor entertainment area, complete with hot tub or barbeque pit.
There are a number of reasons why pavers have become popular in projects such as these:
Their uniform size and quality allow them to fit tightly together for a strong, interlocking surface.
Paver joints allow for a small amount of movement without cracking. That means they won’t crack like asphalt or poured-in-place concrete.
Their design makes them easy to install and repair
They’re available in a wide variety of shapes, colors and textures.
And they can be installed by either a professional or a skilled do-it-yourselfer.
