The laying pattern design is fundamental to the process to the successful laying of clay paving. Due to the natural characteristics of clay paving, manufacturing tolerances may not permit the achievement of perfectly straight lines. Joints can be re-aligned through the use of string lines and infill units can be incorporated as the pattern develops.
