Introduction 

This page provides a guide to the geometry and geometrical terms used for paving and streetmasonry. 
IntroductionPaving and streetmasonry can, at times, seem littered with references to barelyremembered geometric terminology, but most of it is comparatively simple and based around the geometry of circles and rightangled triangles.Much of that geometry is most easily explained using kerbs as an example, as they are often the closest physical manifestation we have to the geometry created by a designer, specifier or architect. However, the same geometric terms and relationships apply to all aspects of paving, streetmasonry and hardscapes. Just take a look at the work done in preparing a flagstone fan radius, if further proof is needed! This page sets out to define some of the most commonly encountered terms.
