Paver Border patterns allow you to further customize your project. Borders are useful in creating a unique edge and help transition between hardscaped areas and landscapes. Below are some of the most common border styles.
Paver Border Styles
A sailor border is one in which pavers are laid with the shortest edge to the shortest edge creating a thin border. This type of border is sometimes used for decorative effects but mostly to securely lock the entire job from movement.
To finish off the beautiful paving job would require an edging treatment. One popular edge is called a sailor border. Sailor border paver patterns are when the outside edge is finished by pavers turned with the long side of the paver running along the job, offering a horizontal treatment. See the sample to the right that illustrates what a soldier border represents.
When specifying a border style, if you want the border to be less prominent and thinner, you need a sailor border pattern.

A soldier edge is one in which pavers are laid with the longest edge next to the longest edge creating a prominent border. This type of border is sometimes used for decorative effects but mostly to securely lock the entire job from movement.
When specifying a border style, if you want the border to be prominent and wider, you need to specify a soldier border.
Once you decide which style border you want, you need to determine which paver design you would like. 2 of the most common are a 4.5″ x 9″ and the 6″x 9″. Both styles come in an array of different colors. Some of the most popular are a dark (Coal) or a grey (Onyx Natural). Both of these options look great in either a soldier or sailor pattern.
