Brick Walks

Clay Paving Brick offers permanent color and a centuries old classic look that has proven it can pass the test of time. Many walks over 200 years old and still in good shape can be seen in older sections of Philadelphia. Paving brick is installed over a compacted based off modified and screened stone with many available patterns and styles. Brick can be formed in a mold or wire cut during it formation for very different looks. You can find more information on various types of brick on the Glen-Gery website.

Paving brick is installed over a compacted based off modified and screened stone. Walks are blended into existing grade, with a minimum of disturbance to surrounding lawns and gardens, and the proper pitch. Dimex edging can be used below grade to restrain edges of the brick. Also shown in the photos below are bricks mortared vertically along the edges (solider bricks) as a restraint for the walk. Cobblestones, flagstone or pressured treated ties can also be used as a border. Basketweave, herringbone, running bond, or other patterns can be used.
