There are many benefits to having pavers, artificial grass, or exposed aggregate on your property. They are strong and able to withstand high traffic areas for vehicles and walkways making them a fantastic investment.
Our pavers are made of concrete
Our pavers are dyed with special dyes to change its natural pigmentation. However, with age and sun exposure, there is no guarantee that your pavers won’t fade in colour with time.
Proper installation of pavers won’t allow for weeds to grow through, however, when plant seeds blow in the wind, they can become embedded in between the paving spaces causing possible weed growth. Sweeping your paving can help prevent this issue.
We recommend sealing the paving to remove oil stains, car tire marks and to help prevent weeds from growing.
Yes, you can have pavers at the pool area; it is also a good non-slip option
We use a quality concrete edge restraint that helps to keep the pavers in place even in extremely hot temperatures.
We use a stone grinder to make a clean-cut in the stone.
ARTIFICIAL GRASS FAQ
Artificial turf or grass is made with quality eco-friendly materials that are safe for children and pets. It goes through various stages during the manufacturing process to create the perfect thread, backing, drainage, and weather protection needed to last a long time.

EXPOSED AGGREGATE FAQ
Measuring the right amount of aggregate with concrete is very important. Sometimes when too little concrete is used, stones will loosen over time and roll out of place. This again takes technical skills and calculation by our experienced team.
Concrete can be coloured to match various colours of the property. Some people match the concrete colour to the walls of the house or the bordering fence. At Royal Paving and Artificial Turf, we have a variety of colours to choose from.
