Thinking about making concrete pavers - a few questions

One thing to be aware of is that some masonry can be severely stained by the chemical reaction of curing cement. Pavers are very bad about this, and you can just about ruin a paver driveway by spilling concrete on it. I think bricks are a little more forgiving, but you would still have to clean all the excess concrete residue off them after the concrete dried. This might entail using acid. So why risk it? Styrofoam is not that expensive. And it easy as pie to work with.

Thinking about making concrete pavers - a few questions

Hi Luis, I'm planning on doing the same exact pattern in our back yard and stumbled upon your post. I was inquisitive to know what did you decide on doing and how did it turn out?
