Country Club DriveContemporary Pool, San Francisco
What Houzz contributors are saying:
This simple checkerboard motif is strongly rhythmic. The square concrete pavers read as a grid, thanks to the green grass seeded between each square. Moreover, this is a much cooler, permeable solution for a poolside patio than if concrete alone had been used.
"A cast concrete paver is usually going to be the biggest bang for your buck," says Sivgalls. "It's strong, easily customizable, and comes in great colors and textures." Whether you opt for a cast concrete paver, or a more natural stone, you'll want to make sure that the paver you choose is thick enough and heavy enough that it can be walked on without getting damaged. But, you also want to make sure it's not too heavy, so you can lift it up and place it where it needs to go.
