Even cracked pieces that are filled in with grout can give a more rustic or natural feel. As a bonus, it can also help with your cooling costs in the summer.

Another reason that people are turning back to brick is because wood prices are going up. Outdoor decks have been for a long time, the preference for wood materials but this is also changing. Brick is coming back as a cheaper alternative and one that can last longer in certain areas as well.
