Why choose natural stone paving?

You needn't be a paving expert to know that natural stone paving slabs are the pinnacle of outdoor finishes.

Not only are they fantastic to look at, stone pavers are also easy to maintain, naturally frost-resistant, and, to top it off, ethically sourced.

From limestone to sandstone, you'll find a plethora of quality natural stone pavers in our collection.


What is the best stone for patios?

If you've browsed our vast catalog of stone paving, you may have wondered which pretty paver you'll choose first.

To make the decision easier, we advise firstly looking at the theme of your patio. Generally speaking, sandstone pavers are well-suited to traditional designs, while modern schemes tend to lean towards limestone paving slabs.

With this in mind, you shouldn't be afraid to mix things up if you want to combine new and old looks. For instance, our natural limestone pavers evoke a subtle beauty – ideal for both contemporary and classic gardens.

In terms of practicality, one of the best stone pavers for patios is sandstone. Naturally stunning, sandstone pavers are known for their long-lasting, reliable properties – they're also easy to clean and maintain. Similarly, slate paving slabs are a durable patio material that, due to their low water absorption, won't become damaged after a bout of frost or a fierce thunderstorm.

Another popular choice of natural stone is Indian stone paving. A popular, yet unique, paving choice, these natural stone patio slabs are known for their durability, hard-wearing nature, versatility, and natural beauty.


Is natural stone paving slippery?

Nobody wants to spend their hard-earned money on a new set of stone slabs, only to find they're as slippery as an ice rink after downpours.

To keep our customers safe, our suppliers make sure all of our natural stone paving is designed to stay slip-free during all four seasons. If you're unsure what this looks like, keep an eye out for textured varieties, or choose a natural paver with a rough, flamed finish, such as our collection of granite paving.

What is calibrated stone paving?

Calibrating stone paving is a simple mechanical operation that takes paving slabs of different thicknesses and processes them to a consistent depth. This is a common technique used on natural stone pavers as it enables a simpler laying process.

You can find a range of calibrated stones within our natural stone pavers collection.

If natural stone paving might not be the most suitable choice for you but you love the natural look, we have a variety of concrete paving slabs in many stone finishes!
