Natural stone paving can add a classy look to your garden. Several varieties exist such as granite, indian sandstone, limestone and quartz. With natural stone the installation process varies from that of cobblelock or slabs. As it is a more delicate material it is lay on a wet sand and cement mix and the joints are filled with a similar mortar mix to ensure a solid job that will not sink or move for decades to come. This laying process ensures that no weeds can grow up through gaps or crevasses. For a slightly bigger investment you can have the superior look of natural stone and the benefit of and extremely low maintenance patio or driveway.
