When you want to learn how to overlay concrete with paving stones, you’ve come to the right place. This article will show you step-by-step how to dress up an old, cracked, or unwanted concrete patio by covering it with nice, eye-appealing pavers.
What is Park & Plaza?
Our tagline for the Park Stone is “The Northwest’s Most Versatile Paver” because that is exactly what it is. It is one of our favorite pavers here at Western Interlock. Park Stone has a classic, rectangular shape that is reminiscent of old European streets. It is strong, enduring, and available for purchase in a wide variety of colors. It also comes in four different finishes:
- Standard, a sleek, contemporary style
- Roca, an old-world look
- Cobble, a softer, worn finish
- Granite, reminiscent of the Cascades
Park Stone is part of the Leiden Collection—the most popular family of stones at Western Interlock—and it blends in perfectly with iconic Pacific Northwest yard décor.
How should you use Park & Plaza?
One of the most appealing things about Park & Plaza is its reliable functionality. The stone is strong enough for a variety of settings and uses. You can easily implement Park & Plaza in a place as heavily used as your driveway, but it is also perfect for a classic, old-fashioned walking path.
Think of any hardscape you might want to install and the Park & Plaza Stone will work well aesthetically and structurally in that setting.
Why should you choose Park & Plaza?
What are some of the benefits of Park and Plaza? Why is it such a great option? Let’s look at three of the top reasons you may want to use it in your next hardscape project.
Park & Plaza is versatile
Park Stone is part of the Leiden collection, as mentioned before, which means there are several other stones that can naturally be used with Park and Plaza. The Leiden collection includes the Plaza, Holland, and Rotundo stones, giving endless options to mix and match and create unique patterns, textures, and borders.
Park & Plaza is capable
Park Stone is composed of a low moisture concrete mixture. It is created under high pressure and with a low-frequency vibration. This process produces a very dense stone that is low in water absorption (less than 5%), and high in compressive strength PSI (above 8,000). This process produces a stone that can endure heavy weight without damage and makes it ideal for any place you may want to install it.
Park & Plaza is practical
Park and Plaza is a beautiful, basic paver that can be purchased at a very reasonable price. The fair cost and high quality of the stone make it ideal for covering large spaces. Many of our customers report how practical they found this stone to be for their sprawling patio or driveway project, as well as for long walkways or yard edges.
