Both of these hardscape materials have pros and cons. However, one of the main differences is that pavers are made from concrete while brick is made from clay, a natural material.
Here is a chart showing the features of both pavers and brick.
Take a look to see which might fit in better with your landscape.
Natural material made from clay
Various red-orange-tan colors
No variety of shapes
More costly than pavers
Good PSI (even for driveways)
Can be dry laid or set in concrete (more expensive)
Can provide a more traditional look
More porous – can get moss and algae
Man made out of concrete (not a natural material)
Many different colors and shapes
Good PSI strength for walkways, driveways and patios
Lots of choices for matching to house or walls
Coordinating decorative block available for many types
Also, are there any walls that are existing or need to be constructed? If so what is the material (existing) and how does it look with brick? If there are nearby walls, the wall materials that look best with brick are brick, natural stone, or concrete. These materials are more expensive than decorative block, but of course have a nicer look too.
