Concrete – a concrete paving stone offers a multitude of landscaping opportunities and comes with a great choice in relation to design, style, and color options. Easy to install, the concrete slabs are durable, strong, versatile, low-maintenance, and perfect for all climate conditions.
If you are considering putting in paving stones as part of your next project, here are a few things you should consider. Using natural stone pavers can be a costly proposition because of the high cost involved in mining and cutting the stones. The manufactured brick used for paving is made from a combination of shale and clay which is fired at two-thousand degrees. Pavers of concrete have to be manufactured by pouring a combination of aggregate, color pigment and cement into a firing mold. These are much more cost effective than the natural stones or brick and are still sturdy enough for driveways or for roads.
The type of paving stones that you purchase for your project will depend on the use it will have and of course budget. If you plan to use the dry-laid paving installation then the stones can be adjusted easily if you happen to make a mistake.
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.
