What are Paving Stones?

These objects are defined by The Free Dictionary as “a concrete or stone slab for paving”. However, these items don’t have to necessarily be made of stone or concrete. In fact, many paving stones are constructed from brick, tile, or other materials. Paving stones have been in use for many thousands of years, beginning on the island of Crete and from there extending to the far corners of the Roman Empire. Of course, these items have been improved upon many different times throughout the centuries and now there are many more paving stone choices than ever were available before.

Types of Paving Stones

There are several different types of paving stones available. First are the rounded paving stones that are called cobblestones. Originally, these pavers were surplus ballast stones that were off loaded in ports and were subsequently used as road paving equipment. The rocks were pounded into the road with the flat side up to form a type of pavement. A number of historic cities still use cobblestones as paving stones to this very day. Another common type of paving stone is the flagstone, which is defined by The Free Dictionary as a “stratified stone that splits into pieces.” It is often used in patio environments. Paving stones can also be used to form curbs and pathways.

A Bit of Info About The Many Materials Used as Paving Stones

Ordinary rock such as slate, granite, marble and so forth are often used to form paving stones. Genuine stone paving slabs tend to be long lasting, but they are also relatively pricey and not always uniform in appearance. Locally sourced rock is one’s best option for putting in stone pavers. Using gravel or granite can be a more affordable option, but homeowners should kept in mind that these small stones tend to migrate and can be tough on bare feet. Small pebbles of any kind will also need to be refreshed from time to time. Another way to save money is to use recycled materials for one’s paving stones.
