Welcome to our Cobblestone Pavers Section!
Introducing Cobblestone Pavers
Cobblestones are small, round stones commonly used for paving roads. Even to this day, they can be seen on paved roads in some European villages and some of the more quaint American cities and towns.
Cobblestone was the one of the first natural stone material used in making roads and walkways. In order to eliminate dirt and muddy roads and walkways, cobblestone was used for decades, so much so that it is quite an historic material.
Streets and roads made of cobblestone were slowly replaced with tarmac by the early 1900’s. However, in parts of Europe there a places where cobblestone pavements have been preserved for their historic beauty and value.
Cobblestones were simply stones collected mainly from riverbeds, then arranged or ‘cobbled’ together, and then set with mortar. Cobblestone is not a geographical term; it refers to the process where stones are cobbled, to form cobble stoned surfaces and pavements.
Modern Day Use
Today, cobblestone pavers are used to achieve the same look, with a lot less hassle. They come in blocks of varying sizes for easy installation and the same designs in a fraction of the time.
These days, cobblestone pavers are cut from other stones, instead of being collected from riverbeds, a very lengthy process. Such stones as sandstone, limestone and granite, are commonly used in the making of cobblestone pavers.
Cobblestones are available in a large range of sizes, colors and quantities. With the use of cobblestone, you can create many varying design options, to suit your driveways, pool surroundings, walkways and other landscaping projects.
Cobblestone pavers can be used in both Commercial and Residential industries. It is generally used as a flooring alternative for various applications, large and small.
Commercially, Cobblestone pavers are used on floors of parking areas, street sidewalks, shopping malls, bus stops and crosswalks. Cobblestone pavers can also be applied to the floors of storage and maintenance areas.
One of the benefits of using Cobblestone paver is its erosion prevention feature. They can be implemented as an environmental tool, providing help against erosion. This an ideal feature for various Commercial sites requiring large scale erosion control, where other materials have failed.
Residentially, Cobblestone pavers are commonly applied to patios, driveways, pathways, walkways, stepping-stones, steps, terraces, balconies, verandahs and garden paths. They are ideal for landscaping applications due to their durability and aesthetic appeal.
The feature of erosion control may also be beneficial for residential applications, where erosion of materials has been prevalent, or where it is expected.
