Best Pavers for Patio
Traditional pavers materials such as concrete and stone can heat up extremely during summer days. They are preferred because they are long-lasting and withstand environmental conditions. However, an emerging wood paving system for patios made of Black Locust has a durability of 50+ years, and a Janka hardness scale of 1,700 lbf (7,560 N). They are durable and can lower surface temperatures through evaporative cooling. Its durability and surface temperature make it the best pavers for patios.

Installing patio wood pavers has never been easier. Permeable Proflow Pavers™ come in panels or setts (12 blocks each) attached to a recycled wire mesh. The wire mesh allows for easy installation as it lays flat on the ground. By laying the wood paver panels next to each other you get quick installation over larger patio areas. The surface is then fastened with joint filler.

Wood pavers maintenance for the patio
Another advantage of the Permeable Proflow Pavers™ modular design is that it has low installation costs. The surface only requires sweeping from time to time. If necessary to replace certain blocks, the modular design allows for only parts of the patio surface to be re-installed. This approach is overall still cheaper than replacing full concrete slabs that have cracked over time.
