# How to find out the quantity of paver blocks for any specified area

Block paving alias brick paving is a widely utilized decorative system for developing a pavement or hardstanding. The primary advantage of bricks over other materials is that separate bricks can pulled up later on and substituted.

These blocks are mostly used in the areas like driveways, pavement, patios, town centres, precincts and more frequently in road surfacing. Bricks are usually formed with concrete or clay, though other composite materials are also utilized.

This construction video tutorial shows you the detailed steps required to know the quantities of paver blocks to be set up for a specified area as well as the total required area to apply those paver blocks.

Assume, the length of each paver block is 0.15 meter or 15 cm and height is 0.30 meter or 30 cm.

Suppose, the paver blocks will be used to a footpath. The length of the footpath is taken as 10.5 meter and width is 6 meter.

For calculation purpose, the following formula is applied :-

Total area of footpath = 10.5 x 6 = 63 m2

Area of one paver block = 0.15 x 0.30 = 0.045 m2
Therefore, total number of paver blocks in footpath = Total area of footpath/area of one paver block
= 63 m2/0.045 m2 = 1400 numbers
