You have a plan for your new concrete paver patio, driveway or pathway. You know the area you want to cover. You've chosen a paver style. You know the color(s) you want to use. You have decided on a pattern. Now you need to figure out how many concrete pavers you need to complete the project.
The Bella Vista line of Concrete Pavers includes many different paver styles. Each of these styles come in varying sized units. This translates to a variety of possible patterns for each paver style. The question is, how many pavers of each size will you need to create the pattern you choose?
Figuring out needed paver quantities involves a few variables and a simple calculation:
Multiply the total project area by the needed percentage. This will give you the needed square feet for each paver size. Then multiply this result by the pieces per square foot. This will tell you how many individual units you will need for your project area. This calculation needs to be done for each size paver. We provide a sample calculation below.
Antique Cobble Pavers in a Modified Herringbone Pattern covering a 500sqft area:
Area | % | PCS/sqft | PCS: | |
---|---|---|---|---|
Jumbo: | 500 | .375 | 1.59 | 299 |
Rectangle: | 500 | .375 | 3.17 | 595 |
Square: | 500 | .25 | 4.76 | 595 |
In the above sample calculation, you can see that you will need: 299 pieces of the Jumbo size; 595 pieces of the Rectangle size; and 595 pieces of the Small size pavers.
