Garden Pavers Cost Guide

Some think that the only people who use pavers are those who have elaborate gardens, but many homeowners use pavers to create driveways, paths, walkways and even patios on their on their property or lawns. Manufacturers now create pavers from a range of different materials, including recycled rubber and natural stone. Natural stone ranks as one of the more expensive materials, but shoppers can now find concrete, brick and other types of pavers that resemble natural stone. Looking at the costs of those pavers and the different materials they are made from can help homeowners find the right pavers for their needs.

The Costs

  • $5 to $30 per square foot

Concrete pavers are among the most inexpensive of all options. These pavers usually cost $5 to $10 per square foot. Brick and grass pavers also fall within that same price range. Natural stone pavers are the most expensive. These pavers start at around $10 per square foot, but the more expensive types of stone, including limestone, can cost up to $30 per square foot. Professional installation of garden pavers will add an additional $5 to $25 per square foot to the cost.

Natural Stone Pavers

Natural stone pavers is a general term that applies to pavers that are not made by man or machine. This includes field stone and flagstone that people find in the woods and stone sourced from quarries. Some of the more popular types of natural stone pavers include:

  • Sandstone

  • Limestone

  • Granite

  • Bluestone

  • Marble 

These materials are more expensive than concrete and other pavers because producers need to move large slabs of the stone from quarries and cut the stone into smaller pieces. Some of the top producers offer thermal treated stone pavers, and those companies use machines to measure and cut each piece for accuracy. Natural stone pavers range in color from light shades of tan, blue and white to deeper shades of red, brown and black.

Concrete Pavers

Concrete pavers feature cement and other aggregate materials that increase the resilience and durability of the pavers. While natural stone can show signs of wear and tear from normal use, concrete can last for years in high traffic areas without developing any problems. Manufacturers create concrete pavers using special molds. The pavers can be formed to look like brick, slate, sandstone or another material for a fraction of the copied material's price.

Limestone Pavers

Limestone is a type of natural stone. Many builders and landscaping crews prefer to use it around the edges of an area due to its strength and durability. Some people find that they can hit the stone with a lawnmower or hedge trimmer without damaging the material. As limestone often comes from the middle of the country, it can handle freeze and thaw cycles without showing the same levels of damage that other natural stone does. Most people use limestone pavers sparingly because they are more expensive than other types of natural stone.

Brick Pavers

Brick pavers use a combination of clay and concrete that manufacturers shape and fire in a kiln. The firing process increases the strength of the brick and creates a hard shell around the outside. Prior to firing the bricks, the manufacturer will add coloring to the mixture, which gives it its color. Though many people assume that brick is only available in a dark red shade, it also comes in lighter shades of white and yellow and darker shades of brown. After installing the garden pavers, the builder must seal each brick to prevent fading and water damage.

Grass Pavers

Homeowners with a large number of plants growing in their gardens and those with one or more gardens might find grass pavers a better option. Typically made from rubber or plastic, these pavers sit just below the surface of the lawn. Installers will often remove the sod and dirt, put the pavers in place and add new grass or grass seeds to the top. The pavers will help better disperse water into the soil to feed plants and vegetation in the area. Though they have a number of uses, those building a walkway or patio may want to avoid using grass pavers as they sit below the grass.

Advantages and Disadvantages

Most homeowners spend time researching different building materials before choosing one for their outdoor project. Some homeowners use the pavers to create pathways that lead from the house to a patio, and others use those pavers to create patios around swimming pools. Builders can also use the pavers to create focal points in the yard or to highlight a specific garden or plant.

Most pavers require some type of sealant before or immediately after installation. Many types of natural stone are absorbent and will draw in moisture when it rains or snows. Without a sealant, the moisture can freeze and cause cracking. Other types of softer stones will also develop chips around the corners, and sealing the stone won't always stop those chips.

Homeowners will find that some pavers are more versatile than others. Builders can lay smaller bricks in more ways than they can arrange larger natural stone pavers. Those concerned with cost should look at how companies source or manufacturer different types of pavers. Bluestone, which is a popular option for walkways and patios, only comes from a few states, which makes the stone more expensive. The right builder or construction company can sit down with the homeowners and talk about the project upfront. This gives the homeowner the chance to discuss all the aspects of the design they have in mind. The builder can offer options to help the homeowner decide which garden pavers will work best for that project.
