Tile. Tile, like brick, offers a broad palette of styles, ranging from crisp, contemporary forms to old-world Mediterranean. Because tile is thin and unable to bear much weight on its own, it is always mortared to a solid foundation. Be careful to avoid slick surfaces, since they can become dangerously slippery when wet.
Exterior Mexican Pavers (Adoquines del Exterior Mexicanos)Pavers are just as beautiful for exterior applications on courtyards and patios, especially when paired with decorative Spanish tiles in earth tones.
