Understanding Stone: 4. Cobblestones - thickness matters

June 19, 2018

All cobblestones are not created equal and as with most things in life you get what you pay for! We import quality cobblestones that are 30mm thick to ensure they will be durable enough to withstand heavy vehicle traffic. This additional thickness and the non-slip finish offer peace of mind in outdoor areas such as commercial spaces, paths and driveways.

Cobblestones  are a highly durable choice for driveways and while they work hard, they don’t need to look like they’ve had a tough life. From granite to quartzite, Sareen Stone’s quality 30mm thick cobbles deliver on good looks too.

   


When choosing cobblestones for any alfresco space whether it be commercial or residential, it’s important to consider:

1. Durability – Using a thicker cobblestone will increase the durability of the stone particularly when dealing with heavy vehicle traffic and you can be sure they’ll last.  A 30mm cobble offers additional strength to those less thick.

2. Slip resistance – Where slip resistance is a priority, cobblestones should be a serious consideration for outdoor spaces that will encounter heavy foot traffic.

3. Aesthetic – A beautiful driveway, together with coordinated paths, provide great street appeal and can add value to your property. The key is to ensure the cobblestones complement your design, that they are part of the overall theme. 

4. Ongoing Maintenance – The beautiful thing about cobblestones is that they are relatively low maintenance. If you invest in quality cobbles and a landscape specialist in the first place, your ongoing maintenance should be minimal.

   


Sareen Stone’s range of cobblestones includes 30mm thick quartzite and granite cobbles to ensure you get a quality product that will not only stand the test of time - it will stand heavy vehicular traffic!
