– You can save money by buying in bulk. Typically, you will get a 15% discount if the order is over 1000 Sq/ft. If you are ordering less than 1000 sq/ft, you may not get any discount at all.

– Order your pavers early to ensure that they are available when needed for your project. Availability varies from company to company and regionally.
