For today, we want to talk about Belgian blocks. Beligan blocks are brick shaped pavers that are solid granite. They are used in a variety of applications including paving and edging. These natural and durable blocks come in a variety of colors like grey, tan, pink, red and black. Because of the vast array of colors, beligan blocks can be laid in several different intricate designs creating beautiful effects.
