Paving Stone Facts & Ideas

March 29, 2016 by editor Comments are off


Many people may not be aware that concrete paving stones are actually more affordable and easier to repair than a slab of concrete. Rather than pouring an entire new patio- since concrete slabs would be uneven if you poured more concrete mix in just one spot- pavers allow for easy fixes. If only one is damaged, as is usually the case, you can easily just replace it. With some pavers it’s even possible to turn it over instead of full replacing it.
Warmth and fun
What’s better than some comfy seating and even an outdoor bar or kitchen? A fire pit. This functional beautiful feature is available from Island Block & Masonry Supply in kit form, making it a project that is fun to do as a family and will add value to your outdoor space. Living in the tri state area, we experience cold weather a lot of the year, and nights can always get chilly.
With a fire pit, you and your company can stay outdoors even when the weather starts to cool down. It’s not only for warmth though. Fire pits are a beautiful and unique element to add to any yard, and who doesn’t love chilly nights gathered around a fire roasting marshmallows for s’mores?
Splashing around
Create a focal point in your backyard with a fun water feature like a waterfall or fountain. Rock column fountains are pretty and unique ways to add an interesting piece to your outdoor space without breaking the bank.
Pick a color palette
Paving stone are now available in a large array of colors and the possibility for creating mesmerizing patterns is endless.We offer everything from serene and neutral earth tones, like deep gray with rich brown accents, to warm-toned paving stones set against the lush backdrop of the northeast in the Spring and summertime. Regardless of the climate where you live and the color of your decor and surroundings, there is a paving stone collection, set and tone that fits your project.
Contact Island Block & Masonry Supply or visit our Long Island showroom, convenient to all in the tri state area, today to discuss your needs with our experts.

Use Paving Stones to Create Unique Curb Appeal

February 22, 2016 by editor Comments are off

There are tons of variations in paving stones shape, size, texture, color and other attributes that make this material a great choice for all types of outdoor projects.
Regardless of your style, Island Block & Masonry Supply has the products you require for a DIY or full installation, and our experts have the experience and know-how to help you produce your paving stones project.
We discussed in our last blog that there are no “rules” for pavers. We’re continuing the creative streak with even more ideas for how to make your paving stone project the most unique one yet.
Break the pattern. Lay large pavers in different directions. For a walkway, start it in front of the house, have it lead guests into a space and continue from there. Laying one horizontal and another vertical helps creates visual interest and gives a different vibe than a more conventionally orderly paver layout.
Pavers and green. Some may prefer their backyard to be nothing but grass, they prefer the more natural elements. However, when you also want a lounge chair or a table, grass only backyards can be tricky. By laying pavers at certain points with grass in between, you can enjoy the best of both worlds- being able to feel the grass beneath your toes when you want it, and steadying furniture when you want to kick back and relax.
Another “pavers among the grass” is placing a few here and there, with one or more offshoots of the original path. By creating more than one option for walking the property- whether a path leads to the pool, another to the fire pit and another to the shed- you make the space that much more intriguing and throw in a little fun.
Sometimes homeowners may not have a green thumb and they can’t even keep their grass alive! It helps to take things as they come and go with the flow. Cover sparse areas with large block pavers in a patio shape or freestyle and put the blocks where needed only. You can even fill in the crevices with gravel.

Getting Creative with Paving Stones

January 15, 2016 by editor Comments are off


Paving stone projects aren’t one-size-fits-all, though you could create a stunning addition to your home with a standard design for a driveway or patio, why not switch things up and get creative?
Show off your artistic side. Make your driveway or patio a piece of art with a custom designed paver patio, walkway or driveway. It adds curb appeal for people wanting to show off their property or those looking to sell their home.
A mosaic design gives your space a unique look unlike all of the other homes on the block. Set your property apart from the rest of your cookie cutter neighborhood.
Prefer a more natural look? If you want to incorporate some greenery into the mix but still love the look of pavers, consider setting pavers apart and create a “zen” type area by placing the pavers apart and allowing grass in between. This is a great idea for a courtyard setup, which gives your space an uncommon touch that is both creative and functional. Cut down on maintenance by using artificial grass.
Some may view a sloped yard or a space with multiple levels as a challenge, but this gives you ample areas to work with, creating visual interest and separate areas to entertain. We have many options for retaining wallstone systems here at Island Block & Masonry Supply, such as Cambridge and Nicolock products, and we’ll help you choose which system best fits your needs. Retaining walls can be used for extra seating, as a garden border or as a supportive or decorative structure.
Stack paving stones to create a raised garden. If you line the bottom of the garden with pavers you will also prevent weeds. Paver stones do double-duty to create a beautiful garden that is different from others while also nipping any chance of weed growth in the bud.
Warm up to other ideas! You don’t need a huge outdoor area to include a fire pit on your property, we have fire pit kits available that are made for self-assembly. Now all you need are some marshmallows!
Contact Island Block & Masonry Supply or visit our Long Island showroom, convenient to all in the tri state area, today to discuss your needs with our experts.

Why Pavers Are a Great Option for Tri State Area Residents

You are here: Home › Blog › Why Pavers Are a Great Option for Tri State Area Residents

December 15, 2015 by editor Comments are off

The climate we experience in the tri state area lends itself extremely well to concrete pavers. Many people see paving stones and assume they would only be appropriate in warmer or southern climates. However, the freeze/thaw cycle that happens in the winter and then spring throughout the northern states where we usually experience snow and icy conditions in the colder months doesn’t cause damage to pavers.
While snow and ice can cause concrete and asphalt to develop unsightly and dangerous cracks and hollow areas over time, the density of each individual paver block makes them more durable- as a team. Concrete doesn’t “give” which causes the cracks, while individual bricks allow for flex throughout the freeze and thaw cycle, helping them better recover from the freeze.
De-icing salts, shoveling and everyday traffic from kids, toys, bikes, cars and everything else can wreak havoc on concrete and asphalt driveways. This is one of the many reasons that pavers are “better” than concrete. Think the seemingly even surface of poured concrete makes snow removal a cinch? That’s not the case. The repeated use of de-icing salts and other agents like mentioned above will definitely cause deterioration, along with any fractures that develop due to freezing.
Rather than having to repave your entire driveway like you would if you had poured concrete, each individual paving stone is its own unique block, making damage repair a snap! If damage occurs, just pop out that block and replace it with one of the extra ones you should have on hand if you follow our advice of accounting for extra pavers in your order in preparation for situations like this.
Considering installing a paving stone driveway but not sure when the best time to redo your driveway would be? Contact the experts at Island Block & Masonry Supply, we can help you pick out the right products and tell you everything there is to know about caring for your paving stone driveway in the winter and all year round. Give us a call at 631-443-4521, contact us via this online form or visit our Long Island, NY showroom, conveniently located to all within the tri state area.

DIY Retaining Wall – Things to Consider

You are here: Home › Blog › DIY Retaining Wall – Things to Consider

November 22, 2015 by editor Comments are off

Brave “Do-It-Yourselfers” across the tri-state area gladly accept the challenge of many home improvement and outdoor remodeling DIY projects. Paving stone projects lend themselves nicely to DIY types because the process, depending on the specific project and property layout, has the potential to be pretty simple.
When it comes to retaining walls, which are built with paving stones- also known as precast concrete pavers- there are no limits to the applications of this structure. They can function as the back of seating around a fire pit, as a way to hold back soil on sloped land, as the perimeter or a patio, the sides of a driveway, and the list goes on and on.
The less “work” the wall has to do, the easier it is for the DIY-inclined to take on a project. Meaning, if the wall is more for aesthetic effect that functioning use (seating, soil holding, etc.), it is a much more simple project. For more complication structures, consider enlisting the help of the professionals at Island Block & Masonry Supply.
We are experts in anything related to paving stone and masonry projects and enjoy consulting with our customers on their DIY projects, whether it’s helping them pick out products or referring them to knowledgeable engineers and builders.
Here are some quick tips for starting your retaining wall project:
Scope of the paving stone project
How big is the area where you would like to install the wall? How how would you like the wall to be? Do you want to include seating? Will the wall be holding soil, or is its only function to define that space? Make sure you know the answers to these questions before anything else.
Retaining wall layout
Design the wall by marking the area. For a freeform layout, a rope or string is fine to outline the general shape. If you want crisp lines, you will need to get more specific and mark the “bed” with paint, stakes and string. Gently drag a shovel on the perimeter to mark the walls outline.
Have more questions? Contact us at 631-443-4521 or come visit our Long Island showroom, convenient to all within the tri state area.

Eco-Friendly Paving Stone Options

April 10, 2016

Here at Island Block & Masonry Supply, our staff along with many of our wonderful clients and customers, are conscious of the environment and try to be as eco-friendly as we can, when possible. Along with minimizing the carbon footprint, certain types of paving stones are more friendly to the environment than others.
We proudly carry several varieties of eco-friendly paving products. Permeable pavers assist reducing water pollution because of they consist of more porous material than other pavers. Block concrete and brick does not have this ability. The porous consistency of permeable pavers allows water to percolate back into the soil and into the water table, this limits runoff water, which usually ends up flowing into sewers, polluting waterways in the tri state area.
We noted in a previous blog that the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) stated that more and more professionals are choosing permeable interlocking concrete pavements than ever before due to the environmental advantages of the material and its ability to meet low impact development goals.
Unilock permeable paving products are available at our Long Island showroom.
Eco-Priora™
Features: Multiple shapes, color retention.
Eco-Optiloc™
Features: L-shaped design, can withstand heavy commercial loads.
Eco-line™
Features: Custom finish and color options; has the ability to be mechanically installed.
Dura-Mat™
Features: Erosion control pond lining.
Thornbury™
Features: Textured surface, three compatible sizes.
Town Hall™
Features: Appropriate for traditional and permeable installation methods; distressed appearance.
Turfstone™
Features: Erosion control; favorite of landscape architects.
Uni Eco-Stone®
Features: Maximum drainage
One of the most permeable of Unilock’s collection is the Uni Eco-Stone. This paver product enables maximum drainage, promoting water runoff, and helping the natural ecosystem in turn. Though permeable, it is exceptionally strong. The Un- Eco-Stone has the full capability to handle the weight of large commercial vehicles.
While some paving stones are more eco-friendly than others, choosing the right products can help you contribute to less pollution, helping the environment, and possibly saving money in maintenance costs over time.
The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) has listed numerous ways in which concrete pavers provide solutions to ecological problems.

Make Your Outdoor Space Extraordinary with Pavers

March 10, 2016 by editor Comments are off

Paving stone projects can vary in scope from large scale, like commercial projects (buildings, offices, parks and so on) and smaller home projects- anything from driveways to retaining walls, walkways and garden borders. Paving stone projects are attractive to people living throughout the tri state area for a variety of reasons: Pavers are an affordable way to seriously boost curb appeal and they are very low maintenance – a must for those long, hard winters we encounter here in the northeast.

There are numerous ways to create interest with paving stones that are great for both do-it-yourselfers and those who would rather hire someone for the actual installation. Below, we list some tactics to apply to your paving stone project in order to make your outdoor space the best it can be!

Add some drama. Inground pool? Check. Flowing fountain? Check. It might not be the “useable” features that steal the show when you have quality pavers arranged in a compelling way. Minimal, simple and modern, installing long slate-colored pavers around a pool really makes other outdoor features pop with minimal effort- and cost.

Mix it up with bricks serving as a paver for one area and individual slate pavers over thick gravel in another. If you are the type who likes to keep things interesting, this mix of materials can give a fun and low maintenance look to any outdoor area, whether it’s a small garden, walkway or surrounding a large patio. Since this plan doesn’t involve matching pavers, it completely hassle-free.

Lay out a not-so-secret garden that turns the backyard into a real wonderland. Choose a shape and make it a labyrinth. A swirling mix of loose pavers and soil for the garden is a mixed-use project fit for those with a green thumb.

Turn your yard into a big game of cheese!  There is nothing ordinary about laying out an oversized chess board over your grass. Pop pavers over the ground alternating with grass patches and there you have it. Now you just need some large chess pieces to go with.

Contact Island Block & Masonry Supply to enlist our help tackling a new type of paver project. Our showroom is conveniently located on Long Island, just a short ride away for folks living in the tri-state area.

Interesting Paver Projects

February 10, 2016


There are no “rules” for pavers. Maybe your style is a little eccentric, or you’re not into perfectly patterned pavers, we have a large variety of products that suit numerous types of projects.

In one of our previous blogs, we have encouraged you to show off your artistic side. Why? Because it adds serious curb appeal both now and when you are looking to sell. Artfully arranged pavers in a custom pattern make your driveway or patio a piece of art.

Many don’t realize the ability of pavers to glam up your outdoor space, whether it’s an outdoor dining room, pool coping, a bar, fireplace, firepit, waterfall or custom patio, walkway or driveway. So how else can you use pavers to show off your creativity? We have a few ideas we share below.

Bring two areas together. Hop, skip and jump between different areas of your yard by placing large pavers several inches apart over gravel. A layout only of gravel does not create the same “connected” effect that the perfectly placed pavers do.

Put things in order. Have some grass you would like to keep, but want to make the other parts of your yard more friendly for walking? Make a outline out of pavers and fill in the space, keeping the wild elements of the yard, like grass, bushes and flowers to the perimeter.

Mismatch sizes, shapes and paver types. Even modern homes may need a touch of an organic element to their home. Sometimes homes with such clean lines look even more fresh when juxtaposed with pavers in flowing, natural shapes.

Even small spaces can benefit from large, flat pavers with wavy outlines in a walkway pattern around their home. Whether you want to create a footpath to a hidden garden or add structure to a clearing with wide, linear pavers, try big pavers rather than small for a nice effect.

Make room for a room. Who doesn’t want a full functional outdoor dining room? Make the space as zen and clean as possible to neat, orderly pavers. The flora and fauna can be off to the side away from diners, leaving room for homeowners to host company and enjoy the space with their family.

Thinking of tackling an arty project? Contact Island Block & Masonry Supply or visit our Long Island showroom, convenient to all in the tri-state area, today to discuss your project with our experts.

Estimating the Amount of Paving Stones for Your Project

Retaining walls work for commercial or residential properties and are useful for a variety of purposes: Creating extra privacy, a back rest for built-in seating, a means of holding back soil on a sloped property or border for the perimeter of a designated space or outdoor garden.
Do-it-yourself projects are gaining popularity with sites like Pinterest and Youtube helping guide people along the way. Regardless of how “handy” you may think you are, retaining walls can be a little complicated depending on your outdoor space, so it’s necessary to keep a few things in mind when it comes to the planning and execution of your project.
The experts at Island Block & Masonry Supply can help you pick out products and answer any question you may have while planning your products, and of course as you carry those plans out. We help people throughout the tri-state area remodel their outdoor space in a way that suits their needs. Let us help you enhance your property by visiting our showroom and letting us help you pick out products.
Continued from our last blog are some things to remember when working on a retaining wall for your residential space.
Determining type and amount of product
There’s an easy formula to most accurately estimate how many paving stones you will need.
To pre-plan the amount of paving stones that need to be ordered per row, divide the total length of the retaining wall by the length of the block. Now, you must determine the number of rows your project requires. To find out, divide the ideal wall height by the height of the block. Remember, you must account for the first row to be partially buried in the ground below.
You can calculate how many blocks you may need, but you never know what can happen when you get started. It’s smart to figure in an amount of 10% extra paving stones than you estimated. Keep extras as replacements for repairs in the future, and be aware there may be some breakage, or you may have to cut some to fix precise angles of your project.
