Peacock Pavers

 Peacock pavers are typically set with a 1/2" joint. We are also using a 1/8" slope to control wind blown rain at the gazebo. A beautiful stair system and landing are across the courtyard.

Peacock Pavers are a formed and poured concrete paver material. To Alabamians, the historical peacock paver has been produced in Atmore, AL for almost 30 years. Once reportedly produced by prisoner labor from the nearby state correctional institute, PeacockPavers.com is now privately owned by Don Gordon, and operated by a very friendly staff. As a retired Marine, I was delighted to be greated by a former Marine Security Guard (Embassy Security Detail), named Steve Reynolds, acting as their yard manager. We are matching an existing paver system on an outdoor living space designed by Alex Krumdieck, and I wanted to kill two birds with one stone by taking a road trip, and to also meet the staff of PeacockPavers.com down in Atmore. I have nothing but nice things to say about the service I received and of the care that was provided making sure that I was safely loaded up for the trip with over 11,000 lbs. of freshly minted buff colored peacock pavers. Architect Bobby McAlpine is also quoted on PeacockPaver's website, and cross referenced to Veranda Magazine on the use of the material. The cost for this material is about $5.00 a foot, in contrast to a $12.00 a foot bluestone. The nice affect of this material is the smooth non-slip surface and durability (it's concrete). It can also be stained down the road, so it really is user friendly. So, if you are ever in the market for peacock pavers, give their staff a call at (251)368-2072, or visit their website at peacockpavers.com.
