Your backyard has the potential to be a masterpiece for aesthetics or architectural design if you have not laid a patio there.  It is a great opportunity to bring natural beauty to your backyard or garden by stone patio paving designs.  Stone pavers indeed are different in many respects from other paving materials, including precast concrete, bricks, and wood.  Thereby, let’s take a unique and scientific approach to learn about natural stone pavers for patio paving in 2024.


Asymmetrical Shapes

Traditional flagstones come in irregular shapes and pose installation challenges, including preparing a viable layout and fitting stones perfectly accordingly.  However, it gives a perfect natural look-n-feel.


Paving Border Patterns

Patio borders have capacities to add new dimensions in paver stone laying pattern.  Therefore, learning different border patterns may help in your stone patio paver pattern creation.


Soldier Course Border Pattern

It is a highly used pattern.  Rectangular stone pavers laid side-by-side to form a border at the edges of the patio.  Mostly, border pavers found in contrasting or different colors from the rests of inside patio pavers/stones.  It is a commonly found border pattern in patio construction.  Rectangular stone tiles or pavers laid lengthwise in one or more rows.  Designers have ample opportunities to create variations by differing in colors or textures of the pavers.


Inlaid Border Pattern

Apart from the external border, one more border laid inside the patio pattern running parallel to the edge border.  It could be soldering course style or sailor course style and one or more rows to add more flairs in the paver pattern design.


Banding and ribboning

Apart from the multiple rows of the border, some bands and ribbons created with the same pavers used in the border make sense in forming patio paving patterns.  You must have creative eyes to add more interest to it.


Customized Paver Patterns

If you have enough creativity to come with a completely customized patio paver pattern, you have enough room to mix up different border patterns and tweak the overall patio pattern design.



We have seen the modular paver pattern design approach is excellent against the traditional pattern options.  Modular patterns are highly convenient, time-saving, and cost-effective because you select a pattern design and order your stone supplier to provide you with ready to use stone pieces accordingly.
