Natural stone paving can add a classy look to your garden. Several varieties exist such as granite, indian sandstone, limestone and quartz. With natural stone the installation process varies from that of cobblelock or slabs. As it is a more delicate material it is lay on a wet sand and cement mix and the joints are filled with a similar mortar mix to ensure a solid job that will not sink or move for decades to come. This laying process ensures that no weeds can grow up through gaps or crevasses. For a slightly bigger investment you can have the superior look of natural stone and the benefit of and extremely low maintenance patio or driveway.
The most popular natural stone options are granite, sandstone and limestone.
Granite is a durable and attractive option for your patio. It comes in 3 attractive colours; silver, black and yellow. Granite is very hard-wearing and versatile and will suit any house. It adds a classy element to any garden. It is slightly more costly than sandstone or limestone.
Sandstone is a very popular natural stone option for patios. Indian sandstone comes in a wide variety of colours so you are sure to find the perfect colour to enhance your property. Indian sandstone has a variety of colour tones and hues within each slab and thus gives a natural earthy look. Indian sandstone is cheaper than granite but requires a little more maintenance as its naturally porous and thus needs sealing or powerwashing to keep it looking pristine.
An increasingly popular natural stone option. It comes in yellow, black and grey and has a smoother texture than sandstone and is a less porous stone. This makes it easier to maintain. It costs the same as sandstone, thus a little cheaper than granite. It generally comes in a mixed size pack giving a unique look to your patio.
Natural stone installation
We lay all types of natural stone paving on sand and cement and joint it with wet sand and cement (mortar) to ensure that the job will stand the test of time. Also, by jointing in this way we ensure no troublesome weeds can creep up through the joints. This wet mortar method that we use on all our natural stone jobs is far superior to checmical grouts available on the market. It is more time consuming, but in our vast experience the benefits far outweigh the extra effort. So this type of stone is ideal if you are looking for a low maintenance option for your patio.
When using such high quality installation methods, it is vital to have quality materials to work with to ensure a patio or driveway that will last and look great for years to come. We use only top quality maving materials from reputable suppliers like Tile Merchant.
