Pros and cons: Brick gives off a beautiful old-world look and is low-maintenance and relatively slip-resistant, but ground shifts over time can make a brick pathway or patio difficult to shovel snow because of the irregular surface.
Cost: Approximately $15 per square foot, including the base
Ideal location: Patios, garden paths or walkways, pool decks or fountains, front porches, driveways
Design ideas: Brick can be installed in a number of patterns, such as basketweave, herringbone, and circular. Encouraging moss to grow between brick pavers fills in the cracks and helps prevent weeds, but can be slippery when wet.
