Using reclaimed cobblestones for paving projects
Cobblestone pavers have been used for building roads for centuries. That being said, it is obvious why reclaimed cobblestone pavers are a great material when building your driveway or other high traffic areas. See below for some points to consider when choosing your cobblestone paver.
Shapes and styles
The shape and size of cobblestone pavers dictates the type of pattern the cobbles can be laid in. Rectangles (particularly larger ones, Jumbos) make the classic running bond pattern. While squares and cubes (European Cobbles) offer more flexibility in design and are good for fan type patterns.
Color and Tone
While virtually everyone agrees that wear and patina is what makes reclaimed cobbles unique, the range of color and tones that Stone Farm offers often surprises people. Colors range from the traditional New England salt and pepper look to earth tones of the European Porphyry and to the deep blues of Belgian Bluestone.
No matter what color range or mood you are trying to achieve, it is most likely Stone Farm can find you just the right cobblestone to achieve it.
Dimensions and Applications
Reclaimed cobblestone starts out as a "full bed" cobblestone ranging in depth from 3-7". Stone Farm offers a range of products made from the original cobblestone. By slicing the worn tops off of old cobbles to a 1" thickness, new opportunities are created for installing over existing floors and for use as veneers. Slicing also cuts down on installation and transportation costs.
Our sawing technique launched the Flat Cobble, a cobblestone installed with the sawn face up. The Flat Cobble has the organic shape and rich colors of a traditional reclaimed cobblestone, but is completely flat!
