It is true that I had to go on all sides of the pavers which does take time, a courageous back, and a caring nature. When the job is all done between all the nice square pavers they look a little askew in places. Looking at the whole area it was easy to see which stones where a bit out of alignment; again with the edging tool pushed straight down I just levered slightly to push the stones back in place. The paving squares lie on a deep layer of crushed gravel so this part of the job was easy, the result satisfactory. It did not disturb the substantial gravel under layer.
Stone – a naturally sourced stone paving stone is either collected from a rock outcrop or mined from a quarry. As stone pavers do not go through a manufacturing process, as would be seen with the brick and concrete stones, a number of unique qualities feature. Also, because of the steps taken to source this material, the slabs can be quite a bit more expensive than there man-made alternatives. However, due to the quality appearance of the stone pavers these are still extremely popular for a lot of external applications.
Interlocking stones are set in sand instead of mortar. This makes them more resistant to cracking, due o the flexibility that is created. On average, interlocking stones will cost around $10 per square foot (depending on the size and space you want paved, the type of stones and their availability). Other things that may influence the price include the current condition of the area and any preparatory work that is needed. An installer should be able to give you an estimate. A good installer will be able to lay around 400 square feet per day.
Ideally, when laying paving stones the design, size and color choices chosen should be able to integrate effortlessly into the existing landscape. And provided you do not let aesthetics interfere with the safety aspects, the design and type of paving used is only limited by your budget and imagination. Irrespective of the type of paving stone used, from a simple to complex job, it pays to take into consideration the rest of a properties landscaping to ensure the overall design fits in perfectly.
