    A patio of pavers has cracks in it as soon as you're done building it. Pour some concrete.

    I'd do stamped concrete. Pavers will shift and move. Or just do concrete and stain it/seal it.

    My parents house in Ames had their driveway redone with pavers. About 120 feet long. It's been 15 years or so and it still looks fine. The only issue is killing the few weeds that have worked their way in between. No shifting or heaving.
