If you're referring to around the perimeter of the patio thats just river rock and landscape edging to contain it.

He problem is that with BOTH pavers AND concrete, the prep work must be good or the pavers will lift and the concrete will crack. Period and end of story. Proper base, proper drainage for pavers; the same PLUS appropriate support (e.g rebar, wire, etc) for concrete must be in place. With all of that, laying the pavers is a no-brainier and you should never have to touch them again. Concrete goes a lot faster and you need some specialized tools if you're doing a large area pour (floats with extendable handle, etc). Doing the bag thing from big box for me is just nuts. Ron
