With natural stone paving, a good range of options is available such as Indian sandstone, granite, limestone, and quartz.
The installation process involved when it comes to paving natural stones varies from that of others such as slabs or cobble locks. Due to its fragile materialistic nature, it is typically laid on a damp mixture of cement and sand, and the joints are filled with a similar mortar mix to ensure a solid foundation that won’t give way in the long run.
This particular laying procedure seeks to ensure that no weeds can grow from within the gaps/spaces in the instalment. Natural stone paving is low maintenance and you don’t necessarily need to tend to it like other surfaces, it just tends to be more expensive.

Some of the most prominent natural stone options available to you are granite, sandstone and limestone.
Granite is a coarse-grained igneous rock composed mostly of quartz, alkali feldspar, and plagioclase. It forms from magma with a high content of silica and alkali metal oxides that slowly solidifies underground. Granite is a very durable and aesthetically appealing option for your patio or garden area. It comes in 3 attractive colours; silver, black and yellow. It brings in the element of sophistication into any part of your home it gets paved into. Note: it’s typically more expensive than other natural stone paving types.
Sandstone is a clastic sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized (0.0625 to 2 mm) silicate grains. Most sandstones are composed of quartz or feldspar (both silicates). Sandstone is a very popular natural stone option for patios. Indian sandstones tend to come in a variety of colours for you to choose from, so no worries, you would definitely have a catalogue of colours to choose from, and would likely find one that suits your home perfectly. Indian sandstones are more expensive than their friendly neighbour, granite, and tend to need more maintenance as time goes one.
Limestone is a type of carbonate sedimentary rock. It is composed mostly of the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). It typically comes in yellow, black and grey and has a smoother texture and feel than sandstone. The maintenance for this type of paving is much easier, and it costs almost the same as sandstone. we also pave patios dublin.
