A paving stone is a hard block that can be made from glass, cut stone, cast concrete, brick, clay tile, and plastic and come in many colors, textures, sizes and shapes. They can be used a variety of ways but they are all used to create a hard, smooth outdoor surface. A contractor can create outdoor steps, driveways, patios, and pathways using paving stones.
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.
If the stones are to be set in mortar then planning in advance is extremely advantageous. Any mistakes made in this type of stone laying are very hard to correct. Also, always take into consideration any problems with drainage and give the walk a gentle slope so that puddles will not gather especially in areas that have heavy rainfall.
The flagstone is handmade and is perfect for areas close to the braai or next to a bed of roses. It can be used indoors or outdoors or vice versa for a smooth but steady stay. These paving stones are durable and easy to clean so it is ideal if you aren’t able to tend to your garden often. Cladding is used on partitioning walls in the garden. You can create a modern stone rock theme in your garden. Adding cladding mends dull or bland walls and uplifts the look of your garden.
