Are bricks and pavers the same?

Of course no! The two conception can’t even been compared in the same level. Bricks are a type of products focusing on its shape and material. Properly, the term brick denotes a block composed of dried clay, but is now also used informally to denote other chemically cured construction blocks. So basically, when we say brick, we mean it is a rectangular block made of different material.

But paver is more like a conception emphasizing the function. Because it is an outdoor floor or superficial surface covering. The main point is that it is a floor covering.

But pavers can be made by bricks. Of course pavers can also be made of other materials like marbles, basalt or other materials.

First pour in 1 to 2 inches of graded base. The spray the base with water to keep the dust down and compress. Then pour in 1-2 inches of graded base and compress and keep repeating the process until the depth is 3.5inches.

The third step is to add sand layer and grade the path.

The fourth step is to Lay the brick edging.

The fifth step is to fill in the field with the bricks.
