Usually the paving stones will be either rectangular or square but there are actually a large variety of different shapes and sizes. The most popular patterns that can be created with the square or rectangular shapes are the basket weave or the herringbone. By using either power or hand saws the stones can be made to fit exactly into patterns.
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.
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.
And then there is the ’corn-gluten’ method. This corn-gluten meal is sold in some garden supply stores. A totally natural method which will stop plants from germinating between your paving stones. It is applied well before the seeds are seriously thinking of starting their life in the spring. Spread it evenly into the spaces and trust that the weather stays dry for a few days after application or you may have to repeat.
