Explanation:
The proper translation depends on the target country.

Some suggestions, based on the Beigbeder Atienza Polytechnic English/Spanish Dictionary:

control block: Bloque de control

Paving block: bloque (Cuba)/tarugo/adoquín

Paving: Zampeado/empedrado/pavimento/
pavimentación/material de pavimentar/de pavimentar

I am from Central America, and some of these termes (tarugo, zampeado) wouldn´t be used or understood. My first suggestion is to find out what is used in the target country. If it is intended for a Latin American audience, instead of a European one, my recommendation is:

Bloque de control de erosión - bloque para pavimentar OR bloques de pavimentación

Good luck.
