Every pavement differs according to the clients requirements and constraints. If budget is limited, a coarse sand bedding would be recommended. Constraints such as structural load limits and drainage would require either a proprietary polypad system or permeable bedding system. So as you can see the requirements and constraints of a project help determine the effective and efficient type of bedding system and changes on a project to project basis.
There are countless patterns to which a person can choose from and is limited to ones imagination. Some common patterns which are generally adopted are stack bond, stretcher bond, offset stretcher bond, 45º stretcher bond, 90º & 45º herringbone, basket weave, crazy pave and cobble fan.
Efflorescence is basically the reaction of salts such has Calcium hydroxide (which is found in Portland cement) with carbon dioxide which then forms calcium carbonate and water. This eventually evaporates leaving salt deposits on the surface of the paver and if left untreated, can be very difficult to remove in future. There are very few methods which are guaranteed to prevent efflorescence completely however there are a couple methods which help reduce the attack or prolong the attack of salts.
One method may be adopting the screed & adhesive fix method with the screed sealed of using a compatible waterproof membrane, this method combined with epoxy based grout can guarantee the most effective technique to combatting the issue of efflorescence. Other methods include negating the use of cement based products in the bedding system and jointing or even the introduction of an efflorescence blocking compound such as efflock.
Pavers are generally manufactured in either masonry or natural stone. They are broken into the following categories; Concrete/Masonry Pavers, Brick Pavers & Natural Stone Pavers. Whilst concrete pavers are made of concrete and brick pavers of clay, natural stone pavers consist of many types of natural stone types. Natural stone types come in a wide variety of colours, density, size, thickness and quality. Natural stone groups are generally known as Granite, Limestone, Marble, Porphyry, Sandstone, Bluestone/Basalt and Slate.
