I am in the planning stages of replacing my old wooden deck with a patio. My landscape architect wants me to go 100% brick pavers (I think that's his specialty) whereas I originally wanted to do concrete. The size of the deck would be about 500 sf, and he estimates the cost of brick to be $4,500 and the cost of concrete to be $3,000. My house is about 13 years old, so I don't think settling would be an issue. What I would really like to do is have the main area be concrete and have bricks used for the border and walkways. Does anyone have any opinions on the benefits/advantages of brick vs. concrete? Thanks!
