Stop Using Concrete Paver Molds

DIYers have been using concrete paver molds for years. They are a popular choice for adding a walkway or stone feature to a backyard landscape. One of the main reasons people use concrete paver molds in their landscaping projects is because they think it is quick and easy to place the mold, fill it with concrete, and be done. But is using a concrete paver mold really that easy? Let’s take a closer look at what’s involved in using a paver mold and see why they should be avoided.


The first problem with paver molds is the concrete itself. Concrete takes approximately 28 days to cure and using it before then can result in cracking or crumbling. Another issue that arises with using concrete paver molds is the amount of time and effort it takes to create a simple walkway. Even creating a short path can require an entire day of work. Lastly, most concrete paver molds are made to look like tiles with unique shapes, but if you use the same mold multiple times, you are left with a repeating pattern that can look tacky.

Instead of using concrete paver molds, you can avoid these issues by using Interlock concrete paving stones. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, paving stones are obsessively manufactured and are checked for quality before they leave the manufacturing facility. Installing Interlock concrete paving stones also requires much less effort than paver molds and doesn’t require you to clean out a wheelbarrow full of semi-dried concrete afterwards.
