These stones are really beautiful. The variety of colors which are grey, red clay and mustard are a great blend. The stones are large (16" x16") and are very thick. We laid an 18 ft walk and an 18 ft x 18 ft patio. We also installed the gazebo anchors by drilling through the stones without any problems. We are so glad that we chose to use these stones instead of pouring a concrete patio.

Every prior review I read before purchasing this paver is spot on, except the one that said they had breakage. The color is wildly varied, and I did not have the chance to select them individually so the store picked up about a half pallet and that is what I laid. The comments about the over-fill on the underside of each paver from the mold was accurate. My stone layers had to grind off all 4 edges of every paver. They are otherwise perfect and very colorful. I laid them with the ProFlex edging. It is strong and true and made the installation perfectly square. But don't use the stakes that go with the edges. It makes the pavers raise on the edges. They are more expensive than any other paver and disappear as soon as they are restocked.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Taylorme63 Satisfied but check the back edges of your pavers.
We built both an entry walkway and large patio with these pavers. The color variation picks up on the brick color of our home which is hard to match in a solid color brick paver. We found the colors among pavers was similar enough- perhaps because we purchased by the palet. The natural variation adds to the appeal. We did have issue with the rough edges on the bottom back of the pavers which made it difficult to place them flush to one another. We had to chip off the edges on the back of most of our pavers with a hammer which added alot of extra labor to installation. When we ran out and purchased more, we found the second purchase had clean edges - I will know better to check prior to delivery next time.

The pavers themselves look beautiful but after starting project with pavers from 4 different stores that according to website each had 50+ blocks I found that availability of pavers is grossly inaccurate. For 3 weeks I have been looking for the last 12 blocks to finish my project. Even though some of these stores are listed online as having up to 300 left I have yet to locate these last 12 pavers. How difficult is it to keep track of inventory and ordering items when your out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by inky Look nice, but need to pick and choose
The colors are nice and the variation makes the finished job look much better. Many of the pavers in the store have only one color, beige or red. Need to select the ones with variations to get the best results. I haven't had any breakage issues, so quality is good in my opinion.
I needed more to finish a project, and the stores in my area no longer carry them. Disappointing.

I ordered 1.5 pallets to build my patio.It turned out beautiful. I only had 2 pavers that need returned due to pits in stone and one broke at corner. I laid mine in random pattern. Some did not line up so we rotated to get the space to be even between them. Over all I had great results.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by warprin Inconsistent quality
I am in the middle in laying down these pavers and have put down about 70 so far, probably from two different pallets. You really have to be picky when you decide which ones to take - some pavers had noticeably smoother surfaces than others, others were very fragile (give them a good tap at the store), and some of them broke when I got them home. I don't know if this is a mix quality issue or these pavers weren't baked right. Colors are inconsistent but that works fine for me - some have more tans than others, others more red, and many of the pavers show these colors in a very vague and wide striped pattern. Look for hairline cracks, because they will break when you get them home. I originally had 12 of these set up to support to small shed directly on a clay surface (northern VA) and they barely budged out of their place! Overall happy. And don't be afraid to return the bad pavers, you can get your money back.

I purchased 2 pallets of these stones and my review is exactly the same as "slicksickle". I had a fair amount with hairline cracks either on the backside or the front and when you pick them up they break, but you can get credit for them at the store. If you plan to handle them yourself keep in mind they are relatively heavy to work with.
