Why Should You Opt For
Cobblestones - Everything Explained

Over the last few years, concrete pavers have become a favorite among landscape designers. However, with the recent drive toward more sustainable options, cobblestones are becoming a popular choice; and for good reason.

These pavers are a classic, pleasing option that’ll transport you back to the days of yore, with their old-world charm. Apart from their rustic aesthetics, there are several benefits to using cobblestone pavers, including durability, stain resistance, and easy maintenance.

What Are Cobblestones?

Cobblestones or cobblestone pavers are terms used for stones that are naturally cut and shaped. Most often these pavers are made from granite, but could also be made from porphyry, or basalt, among others.

Originally, they would refer to naturally-occurring riverbed stones that were shaped by the force of water. Today, the paving stones are quarried, appropriately shaped, and sold as setts to be used as paving for roads and pathways, feature walls, and landscaping.

6 Benefits of Cobblestone Pavers

Durability

Durability

Cobblestones are among the few building materials that have braved the test of time. It is believed that the Romans extensively used this material for their pathways. Many countries including the US and Australia have used these stones ever since ships brought them as ballast to new settlements.

Commercial cobblestones are strong, durable, and resilient by nature. So, they can withstand the crushing weight of vehicles or heavy foot traffic without breaking or becoming deformed.

Additionally, they can withstand the extremities of harsh environments as is proven by the cobblestone roads in many European countries that date back hundreds of years. This is a testament that If they’re maintained well, cobblestone pavers can last you many years to come!

Aesthetics and Design

Aesthetics and Design

Aesthetically, cobblestone paving goes well with homes and properties of any architectural style.

If you’re planning to sell or rent your home and want to increase its curb appeal, a driveway featuring a cobblestone design can be an ideal option. The best part is that the setts come in a variety of colors ranging from white and gray to brown with red undertones.

They can also be installed in patterns that complement your property’s style, character, or architecture. The antique charm of cobblestone pavers will elevate the charm of your home or commercial property, as well as its value.

Stain-Resistance and Water Permeability

Stain-Resistance and Water Permeability

Commercial cobblestones can be sealed with a high-quality paver sealer so that they are resistant to stains. One of the most common problems with pathways or driveways that utilize concrete pavers is that they’re susceptible to stains or discoloration from oil spills or skid marks.

Removal of these stains from concrete surfaces requires intense scrubbing. The good news is that you’re less likely to face these problems with cobblestone pavers, especially if they’re sealed.

Since these environmentally-sound stones are water permeable, there won’t be pools of water on their surface after a storm or heavy rains. This property is particularly beneficial in landscaped areas, where cobblestone pavers can prevent surface runoff and erosion.

Easy To Install

Easy To Install

While cobblestones installation can be a labor-intensive process, it doesn’t require an exceptional degree of skills or the use of heavy machinery. Like other types of pavers, they can either be set with wet or dry mortar.

First, you’ll have to prep the cobblestones installation area, using guide strings for the patterns and perimeter. Depending on the stone size, you’ll have to excavate the area and smoothen it.

Once a layer each of gravel and sand is spread and pressed, the installation begins. The edging stones are laid out first, followed by the field cobbles. Once the surface is flattened, you can seal the joints with loose sand or a wet, cement-based mortar.

Hassle-Free Maintenance

Hassle-Free Maintenance

Granite cobblestones are perfect as they are low maintenance. You can give your cobblestone pathway a thorough wash once or twice annually, to remove any weeds or grass growing in the joints.

A well-built cobblestone pavement with high-quality, well-cut stones can last you a century or more. Usually, if you need to replace or repair it, it’s because the base gets damaged and not the stone itself.

Effortless Repairs

Effortless Repairs

Unlike concrete driveways, which may require the replacement of the entire driveway, should there be any damage, cobblestone pavers are easy to repair. While the cobblestone is highly durable and strong, if a paver becomes damaged, you can easily remove it and replace it. So, it is easier to maintain and repair a cobblestone driveway, pathway, or feature wall and this proves to be cost-effective in the long run.

If the underlying base settles or is damaged, you can simply remove the stones, spread additional base materials, and reinstall the stone. Proper preparation of the paving bed during cobblestones installation prevents this issue, but in instances of exceptionally heavy traffic, this repair may become necessary.
