Hardscaping is often a critical part of designing a beautiful and useful outdoor space. Hardscaping, or paving your patio or commercial walkway with unit pavers or brick, can upgrade the appearance of your space and make it more usable for living and dining outdoors. Hardscaped areas also make it easier to navigate for those with mobility challenges.
Unit Paving refers to this type of paving with stones, bricks, and pavers because each are placed individually. At Storybook Stone, we offer a variety of unit paving options — literally thousands of styles, colors, shapes, textures, and materials. Pavers typically come in brick, concrete, and stone. But you can get pavers in marble, travertine, porcelain, rubber, and plastic. Pavers may interlock or be placed separately with gravel or grass between them. Colors range from beige, brown, and tan to red (brick), pewter, and even colors such as purple, yellow, and blue.

Our expert paving team starts with your vision so we can recommend paving choices based on the land and its use. But the final choices are up to you. We’ll give you a catalog so you can choose the unit pavers that achieve the look you love. We can obtain samples of most pavers so you can see and touch them before finalizing your decision. When we begin working, we’ll create a solid gravel base on fabric to support the structure.
How long the work takes depends on your project scope and the weather, but we’ll be sure to give you an estimate after we create the design. In general, we can work through most North Carolina weather — except ice and hurricanes. But we’ll talk to you about this as we get started.
