Flagstone Hardscape Alternatives: IPE Wood Deck Tiles & Concrete Pavers

If you want a rustic, natural, and beautifully unique landscaping solution, it’s no wonder many people are initially drawn to Flagstone Pavers. Composed of broken-up sedimentary rock, no two flagstones look the same, allowing you to create an entire one-of-a-kind landscape that complements your property’s natural beauty. There’s no question as to why this option is appealing to many, however, is it the right option for you? Whether due to cost, or finding the right contractor to work with, many people seek alternative options that can provide a similar vibe and aesthetic. 

Concrete Pavers

Concrete pavers are available in a wide range of colors and shapes, so the chance of you finding an aesthetically pleasing option is certain. You can opt for a style that mimics the look of natural stone, such as one with a darker stain, or even stamped concrete options for example. These options are designed to mirror the texture, color, and appearance of natural slate stone. They are also slip-resistant, saltwater resistant, and come in a wide range of custom colors and designs. This would look great in a patio, driveway, walkway, and more. Concrete paver options are extremely low maintenance, typically requiring sweeping and the occasional hosing down or pressure washing.

IPE Wood Deck Tiles

This option is becoming increasingly popular with homeowners with luxurious taste. Wood Deck Tiles can be sealed to maintain the wood’s natural beauty or it can be allowed to weather. You have the option of smooth or grooved surfaces contingent upon your desired design. However, due to its durability and flexibility, IPE wood tiles have also become quite popular with commercial properties as well. Since Wood Deck Tiles are designed for installation on adjustable pedestal supports, building perfectly horizontal deck surfaces over sloping or irregular surfaces is no problem at all. Pedestals can be either fixed height or adjustable for slope compensation, and can easily be installed and placed directly on top of roofing and waterproofing systems with no insulation.

These alternative options also allow for the integration of plant and artificial turf trays, to mix in a touch of greenery and vibrant color to your hardscape. So, whether your next project is a rustic patio, durable driveway, creative backyard stepping stones, or a pool deck,  these alternate flagstone paver options are the ideal solution for virtually any hardscaping project.
