Looking for that naturally timeless, old-world look?
Look no further. Cobblestone pavers are here to save the day!
Cobblestone pavers are a fun and sensible choice for garden paths and driveways and they look fantastic as general landscaping features.
The word “cobblestone” comes from an old English word that means “pebbles in a riverbed”. These rounded stones, worn smooth by the river’s current, became an ideal material for surfacing roads thousands of years ago. These tough stones kept dirt roads from washing away in heavy rain, provided traction in deep snow and kept horses’ hooves from sinking into the mud during a spring thaw.
From a historical perspective, if you look at cities like Pompeii or Rome, which are all lined with granite cobblestones, you will understand why it is such a popular choice. Cobblestones are so durable that they don’t last decades or centuries, millenia! Their versatile and enduring nature is an ideal stone of choice for all climates and can beautify any space with a timelessness that will last generations to come.
At Armstone, we have a wide range of cobblestone pavers in granite, quartz, limestone and basalt. These are both beautiful and practical.
Though they are relatively small, our cobblestone driveway pavers have a high compressive strength rating making them incredibly tough and durable. This means that they are strong enough to support the weight and constant vibration of vehicles entering and exiting the driveway. Their dark colour and textured finish also helps mask stains, tyre marks and oil leaks, making our cobblestones ideal for use in high-traffic areas. Their size and slip-resistant surface also makes them ideal for curved designs and steep or sloped areas.
To make them easy and cost-effective to install, Armstone’s range of outdoor cobblestones are supplied with a mesh backing. The main patterns include Chicago, Herringbone, Brick and Straight. Our collection also boasts matching pavers, tiles, stepping stones and step treads. Combining some of these products will help you create a beautiful continuity around your property. Our range of cobblestone pavers also have hand-split rough edges, highlighting their warm and welcoming European look.
