5 popular paving stone options
Paving stones have become a popular addition to front yard landscaping, driveway lining, and garden use. Paving stones can be used to enhance the aesthetic and architectural style of your property and will keep your outdoors timless for a long time if you choose the right material.
If you want to brighten up your pathway or lawn, here's a rundown of the various varieties of paving stones
Slate paving slabs are beautiful and come in a variety of colours. Because of its natural beauty and slip-resistant characteristics, slate is one of the most prominent paving stone selections. Slate breaks when cut and peeled from natural rock beds, resulting in a naturally variable texture. The textural variety of slate is what makes it slip-resistant. Other advantages of putting slate pavers into your landscape or driveway include their tough yet decorative appearance, durability, and variety of sizing options.
It's no surprise that granite stone has long been employed in restoration projects. Granite is particularly intriguing since it is formed from volcanic rock. Granite is formed when magma cools and gathers up random minerals. Granite is extremely resistant due to the numerous minerals trapped on the surface. Granite is one of the hardest stones on the land and is the best candidate for the roughest of conditions due to its natural resilience to all forms of weather and permanency.
