Cobblestone Edging

Granite is one of the hardest rocks available. It is very different from
bluestone, which is a much softer stone. Some granite is estimated to be almost
4 billion years old. You can also find reclaimed granite cobblestone pavers for your Harwich project.


Granite is a very dense material. It #39 s stain resistance is about 95 per cent.
If it happens to get a stain, it can be removed.


Using granite cobblestone pavers (Belgian block pavers) on a Harwich driveway can be
expensive. It is a costly material. However, a cobblestone driveway will last
longer than almost any other paving choice.


As mentioned, it is very hard. It is also resistant to freeze-thaw conditions
and therefore resists cracking or splitting. It does not scratch easily. It is
low maintenance and blends well with many types of landscapes. Many Harwich driveways
from years ago were constructed of granite. You can still see this in various
cities, such as New York. They definitely give that special, old world look.


They can be used either dry laid, or set in mortar. By the way, granite
cobblestone can be used for other hardscape areas also, such as walkways and
patios.

to see some very special reclaimed granite for driveways.
Cobblestones from reclaimed granite are exciting.


quot We reclaim these cobbles from old New England mills, and the streets of
cities (Boston, Hartford, NY). They have distinct colors (usually darker) which
you cannot get with new cobbles. quot

A Granite Cobblestone
Driveway Apron


With all of its attributes, let #39 s face it. To create a driveway out of
granite pavers is for those with extremely high budgets.


There is an alternative, however.


That is to use the granite just for the
driveway
apron
. This way, you can still achieve the beautiful look.


Whether using them for the entire cobblestone driveway in Harwich or just the driveway
apron, there are various patterns to choose from. In addition, you can add a
circle design in the center
, which also looks nice. The cobblestones radiate
out and the circle can be almost any size you choose. These stones also look
nice with a flat border as part of the design.


Belgian block can also be used as
driveway
edgings
if you are doing the entire driveway. They are laid on end and set
in concrete.


Concrete Pavers For A Cobblestone Look


True cobblestones are made of granite. Don #39 t get confused by
concrete
pavers
which might be called cobblestones. They mimic the look, but are made
from concrete.


That being said, concrete pavers are an option as they are much less
expensive. They will dress up a driveway look, particularly at the entry. There
are many nice colors, patterns and textures available. Just be aware of the
difference. Concrete pavers can crack and fade. But, again, they can still
provide an attractive appearance.
