Different types of cobblestone finish for your property

Introduction to Cobblestone Finishes


Cobblestone finishes are a popular choice for driveways, patios and walkways. This type of stone can be used in a number of ways, including to create aprons, edging and driveways.


Cobblestone aprons


Cobblestone aprons are a great way to cover the edges of patios, walkways and pool decks. They are one of the most popular cobblestone finishes that we install. If you're looking for an alternative to bricks or pavers, cobble stones can be used as edging along retaining walls or driveways.


Cobblestone aprons are also perfect for covering large gaps between pavers in outdoor spaces such as driveways or patios. They come in different sizes so you can create an attractive border for your patio without needing any extra tools or materials!


Cobblestone sidewalk edging


Cobblestones may be used as sidewalk edging. It is also a very popular cobblestone finish that we have been seeing this summer. The stone can be placed at the edge of your walkway, forming a barrier between the grass or plants and your driveway. This will prevent weeds from growing up into the walkway and make it easier to maintain your property. The cobblestone edging will also add beauty to any landscaping project, whether it's an entirely new garden or just an addition onto an existing one.

Cobblestones are durable enough to withstand years of weathering without losing their color or shape--and they'll last even longer if cared for properly!


Cobblestone driveways


Cobblestone driveways are one of the most popular ways to use cobblestones. They have been used for centuries to create beautiful pathways and roads. They can be used in place of asphalt or concrete, but they should not be used as a driveway on their own because they are not as durable. If you want to use them as your main driveway, then it is best to lay down some sort of base before installing the cobblestone layer over top of it so that water does not get trapped underneath the stones and cause them damage over time.


The size of your driveway will depend on how much space you have available for building one out from scratch (or renovating an existing one). Ideally, a cobblestone driveway should be at least 35 feet long by 10 feet wide so that there's enough room for vehicles traveling along it without having any problems maneuvering into position next door at each end point!


Cobblestone patios, walkways and pool decks


Cobblestone patios and walkways are popular in the Northeast, where they're often used to give the exterior of a home a rustic look. In addition to being beautiful, cobblestones also offer a practical benefit: they're durable enough to withstand heavy traffic and weather conditions. Cobblestone patios can be used for driveways, walkways and pool decks--and if you have children or pets who like playing outside (or even just kicking around their soccer balls), this type of patio will ensure that there are no cracks for them to fall into!


These are the top ways to use cobblestones on your property.


Cobblestone is one of the most durable and long-lasting materials you can install on your property. It's also beautiful, which makes it perfect for any outdoor project. Cobblestone comes in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes so that you can customize it to fit your aesthetic needs.


Whether you want to use cobblestones as walkways or foundations for patios, there are many ways in which they can be incorporated into your landscape design ideas:


  • Durability - Cobblestone is an extremely durable material that will withstand the elements with ease.

  • Cost-effective - Cobblestone is less expensive than other materials such as concrete or pavers.

  • Versatility - Cobblestone comes in many different colors and sizes so you can create any look you desire!

  • Curb Appeal - Cobblestone is an attractive addition to any yard or garden area. It adds texture, color and visual interest to any landscape design. It can also be used as a walkway or driveway material that adds character to your property.

  • Drainage - Cobblestone is porous, which means it allows water to pass through easily, preventing puddles from forming after a heavy rainstorm or watering session. It also helps prevent erosion by slowing down the water flow through your landscape features so that the soil underneath remains moist but not saturated for extended periods of time.
