Made with the highest quality materials, natural sustainable products and latest technologies, our concrete paving will stand the test of time.
When using Urban Paving as your concrete paver experts, you have 4 textures to choose from. Whether you like a smooth paving texture or a polished concrete look, whether you’re after a non-slip sandy paver or a Yorkstone paver texture – we have the right paving stones to suit any outdoor area.
Smooth texture pavers remain our most popular concrete paver and give your outdoor area that contemporary look. Smooth paving stones can be made in any of the colours in our range. Smooth pavers are available in 3 bull nose sizes.
Sandy textured pavers are becoming increasingly popular. Their dimpled surface gives excellent slip resistance, making them very popular in wet areas or around pools. These concrete pavers can be made in any of the colours in our range. Sandy textured pavers are available in 3 bull nose sizes.
Yorkstone textured pavers give the traditional slate look. They are most popular in the charcoal colour, but can be made in any of the colours in our range, and are often laid in a random pattern.

Please note that although we do our best to control environmental variables during the manufacturing and curing processes, as with any natural product there is a possibility of slight colour variations between batches.
All colour reproductions on this page are as close as possible to the original, however some variations will occur in product colour and shading and aggregate variability. To get a good feel for all our paving colours in natural light, pop into the vast display area of our Christchurch yard.
*These are not stock colours and so cost an extra 20% to manufacture.

Concrete sealer works in a similar way to timber varnish. Our concrete sealer assists in stain protection, and also holds the depth of colour, especially for darker coloured concrete pavers. Alternatively, if pavers are left unsealed, this allows them to age and weather naturally. For sealing pavers there is no right or wrong – it simply comes down to personal preference.
Urban Paving have a range of concrete sealers for different applications available, so just get in touch.
