Natural with paving blocks that salt comes out from them just give it time to dry out or you can clean with pressure washing

usually paving blocks come in plastic wrapping where water gets in and might of been sitting in the yard for a while.before delivery and the salt is visible. actually I've laid blocks like this many times. they just need to dry out you

Get some sugar soap, and spray the solution on the bricks at least 3 times for one week and it would gid rid fo the salt.

This is salt in the stone and should clear after a while, although it
Doesn't look very good there is no harm in it.

Sometimes the salt do come out in the brick beacuse proberly left in the yard for a while beacuse of the water or simply depends on what brand of bricks sometimes a good quality sealer helps with the salt coming out.
