A variety of materials have been used for the rear backyard including stone pavers and timber slatted fencing and raised garden walls. A loft room above the garage acts as a kids room.

    The material is actually a polished concrete paver that comes in smooth & rough finish and in different sizes.
    The paver is made by a company called SADLER STONE. They have an office in Australia & in the US.
    The website is www.sadlerstone.com
    They have a vast range of products. In regards to the pattern, we designed the lay out we liked and we asked the contractors to lay the pavers as per our drawing.
    Just a suggestion, we visited the show room and purchased the pavers that were out in their yard that were no longer required or the range was short in colours. We were able to purchase them at a cheaper price. Hence because we were only able to buy a certain amount in one size and a certain amount in another, we came up with our own pattern.

6. Weed between and clean paversPaved areas take a lot of foot traffic and can collect dirt and grime, not to mention mould, mildew and moss. The great news is that cleaning them is an easy job that doesn’t have to be undertaken more than a couple of times a year, if you do the job properly.Start by removing any weeds growing up between the pavers, then hose down the pavers to loosen dirt and grime. Saturate any surrounding lawn or garden and then, using a stiff broom or brush, apply a 10:1 solution of water to liquid pool chlorine to the pavers and scrub them down. Leave the solution to do its work for about 20 minutes, then hose away the residue. Finally, apply some weed killer between the pavers to prevent regrowth.TIP: It’s important to do this job on a sunny day as the sun breaks down the chlorine.

Like this best, if there are colors that match.

Not patchwork like this, but 2 x 1 rectangles that match glass shape on deck railings

That drain across the paver looks clogged. It needs cleaning plus the holes might be too big because leaves could fall in and decay.
