Landscaping & Paving Council

Local councils are organized under the National sector and can be located anywhere in the continental United States. Local councils offer the opportunity for participating companies to pool their resources to promote brick within a council’s jurisdictions, usually a city or county. Any company can join a local council and there is no National sector membership requirement.

Clay pavers are another type of clay brick that have been used in the United States since colonial times. Many of the clay pavers on Boston's Beacon Hill have been in use for 200 years. Charleston, West Virginia installed the world's first clay brick street in 1870. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway installed over three million clay pavers in 1910-1911, and they are still residing under the asphalt surface.

Today, genuine clay pavers are selected for garden pathways, driveways, sidewalks, patios, plazas and even roadways because of their natural beauty, superior color retention and low- maintenance requirements. Since the color of a clay unit is literally fired through the body of the unit, it does not fade or require sealers like concrete units do.
