How To Cut a Curve In Concrete Pavers

This is one of our most popular posts so I have touched it up a little.  I plan on having the hardscaper (short for Hard surface Landscaper) show me a few tricks so that I can post them later.

The pathway from the street to the basement suite of Pratt House crossed over the location of the sump, so some cuts to the pavers were necessary. Below is a simple how-to on cutting a curve in a concrete paver block, using a wet tile saw.

Align the paver to be cut and mark cut line with pencil

Scribe cutline with tile saw or a metal scribing tool
Stand paver on edge, support backside with another paver, and carefully cut to the scribed line.
Break off the leaves
Clean up the cut up to the scribed line
 Install paver and touch up cut if required.

  3. Do they always use bricks like this? I had a different idea in mind. It might require a professional, though.
