Made mostly of recycled rubber and a little plastic, Azek Pavers feel firm but have some give. (The company claims ceramic plates didn’t break when dropped on them as a test.) They fit into a 16-inch-square grid; pavers overlap from grid to grid to tie the system together. Three styles are available. Permeable and Standard Landscape pavers are for patios, walkways, and driveways, and install over compacted sand; Resurface pavers have a thinner profile for use over existing slabs and roofs. Cost is $8 to $9 per square foot, which includes the grid.
