Sailor Boarders

A sailors boarder is one in which pavers are laid with the shortest edge to shortest edge creating a thin boarder. This type of boarder is sometimes used for decorative effects but mostly to securely lock the entire job from movement.


To finish off the beautiful paving job would require a edging treatment. One popular edge is called a sailor boarder. To remember what a sailor boarder is, think of a sailor in a boat, the boat floating lengthwise in the water. (laying down is what you have to remember) The sailors edging is when the outside edge is finished by pavers turned with the long side of the pavor running along the job, offering a horizontal treatment. See the sample to the left that illustrates what a soldier boarder treatment represents.

When specifying a board treatment, if you want the boarder to be less prominent and thinner, you need to ask Accurate Pavers for a sailors boarder.
