Bring a bit of European charm to your outdoor space by incorporating cobblestones in your design. Cobblestones are an attractive, timeless paving material suitable for driveways, walkways, paths, patios and courtyards. It has been used for centuries throughout Europe as an ideal paving material that performs in all types of weather. Outdoor and General offer granite, basalt, marble, limestone and porphyry cobblestones in colours that blend in with any outdoor environment.
Cobblestones, also known as setts, are a practical choice for homes and public spaces. They are durable and last for generations. The small sized anti-slip surface finish cobblestones work particularly well on slopes, wet areas and high-traffic applications. They are traditionally associated with vintage architecture and classic landscape designs, evoking images of English country estates, Roman paving and historic roadways and public courtyards. Today, they are used with all types of architecture from industrial-style, modern office buildings to country cottages.
Intermix them with our other stone pavers throughout the garden. Use them for walkways, rustic pavement around trees, picnic spots or borders around beds of plants and shrubs. They look fantastic as edging for waterworks, such as fountains and garden ponds, serving as a transition from water to the natural environment. The small size makes them easy to incorporate into designs with circles and curves. They look wonderful as borders next to large pavers or to define landscaped areas.
True cobblestones are natural stone, usually granite or rhyolite, also called porphyry. They may also be limestone, basalt or any durable stone. Early cobblestones were rounded stones collected from riverbeds and used as pavers to add traction and reduce mud and muck in roadways. Today’s cobblestones are shaped from quarried stone into different shapes of rectangular or square blocks. They are also available as filetti, or long, narrow, irregularly shaped pieces. Cobblestones have rough, uneven finishes slip-resistant surface, add traction for driveways. They can also be manufactured in numerous slip-resistant surfaces for walkways giving a textured, warm look to an outdoor space. Check out our cobblestones available in loose form or on mesh panels with pre-laid patterns for easier installation.
Natural stone cobblestones are strong and durable. When incorporated into a paved area, the relatively small size of the stones distributes the stress of heavy loads across the expanse, which makes them able to bear more weight than larger pavers. Traditional cobblestones are square, with thicknesses ranging from 20 mm to 80 mm to suit different stress loads. Standard thickness is 20mm or 30 mm.
There are many types of natural cobblestones used in outdoor spaces, we have narrowed it down to the most popular.
Italian Porphyry is an extremely durable igneous rock. Its fine-grained matrix forms a crystalline background displaying larger inclusions of quartz, feldspar and other colourful minerals. Porphyry is highly resistant to frost, high temperatures and rapid temperature changes. It withstands mechanical stress, making it suitable for driveways, roadways and other high-traffic areas.
Italian Porphyry comes in a wide range of colours, including warm purples, greys, brown, tan and rose. The split finish highlights the grain and beauty of the colours. The result is a versatile tonal quality that works with any colour palette.
Original Raven Black basalt cobblestones exude a sophisticated simplicity, a stunning addition to a patio, courtyard or other outdoor application. Small inclusions in a dark grey background create a look of raindrops falling on stone, a colour and texture that works with any design. The exfoliated finish is slip-resistant and water-resistant, an excellent choice for wet areas, such as pool decks, sidewalks and driveways.
Arcadia Black granite cobblestones range in colour from dark grey to black with an overall appearance of a deep, dark grey. The exfoliated surface mutes the colours, creating a neutral backdrop that blends perfectly with any architectural or landscape design. These stones are slip-resistant, perfect for both residential and commercial applications. Use them in courtyards, driveways, walkways, landscaping, around pools or in any area that receives moisture.
Densely packed small- and medium-sized inclusions give Arcadia Grey a distinctive, elegant look. Grey, white and black inclusions create a look of light grey paving. This handsome colour can serve as a neutral backdrop for a wide range of design applications, including driveways, pool decks, sidewalks and borders. The sandblasted finish lightens the colour of the stone, giving a weathered look. It has good slip resistance, suitable for any wet area and places where traction is needed.
Sesame Grey cobblestones display the exquisite patterning of fine-grained granite. Small inclusions of black, grey and white create an overall appearance of a light- to medium-grey stone. Granite is exceptionally durable, resistant to weathering and is the premier stone for load-bearing ability. These cobblestones work well in driveways and other high-traffic applications. The roughened, exfoliated surface allows more grip and reduces skidding, an important consideration for sloped driveways and entryways.
Flecks of pink, grey and honey-coloured inclusions create a light-grey medium with undertones of honey-brown that works with any design palette. The bush-hammered finish creates a surface with a sandy, weathered appearance. Bush-hammered finishes lighten and brighten the natural tones of the stone. This finish is suitable for any wet area or applications where grip is required.
