Some tips about laying paver from Leecastone



Laying the paver


Begin placing the tiles/pavers on the setting bed in the desired pattern, starting at an edge or a 90 degree corner. This will provide a straight line and reduce the need for cutting. Snap a chalk line or set a string line to follow when laying to ensure lines remain straight. Do not walk or kneel on the edges of tiles or near the edges of the paving stone installation, as this may cause them to tilt or sink unevenly.

Some products are manufactured with spacer bars on the side to ensure accurate spacing of the joints. If the style you are using does not have spacer bars, leave a 1.5-3 mm (1/15 - 1/8") space around the product to act as a joint. In non-vehicular applications, architectural tiles and paver slabs can be laid without joints.

To ensure good color distribution, take pieces from several bundles at a time. Remove paving stones in stacks rather than layers. Frequently look at the overall area and ensure good color distribution is being achieved throughout the project.

Cut the units as needed to finish edges. Do not install a cut piece that is less than 1/3 of its original size as pieces this small are likely to break. Instead, cut two larger pieces.

Walk around the project to ensure good color distribution and that none of the units rock back and forth or are significantly lower than the others. Units are easily removed and replaced prior to compacting.

Paver slab installations and most architectural tile installations should not be compacted. However, architectural tiles used in a vehicular application [60 mm (2.36") modules only] must be compacted as above. In order to avoid marring the surface of the StoneTile modules during compaction, we recommend laying Mirafi 140 non-woven geotextile (available from your local landscape supply store) over the tiles prior to compaction.

Once all of the product ahs been installed and compacted (where necessary), sweep the jointing material back and forth over the surface until all the joints are full. In order to keep weeds or grass from growing in the joints, maintain your installation by keeping them filled with sand. Sweeping joint sand into the joints on a yearly basis will reduce the possibility of weed growth. Or, for a lower maintenance option, choose a more durable polymeric sand.

Granite is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock





Granite is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock. Granite has a medium to coarse texture, occasionally with some individual crystals larger than the groundmass forming a rock known as porphyry. Granites can be pink to dark gray or even black, depending on their chemistry and mineralogy.
                   

Outcrops of granite tend to form tors, and rounded massifs. Granites sometimes occur in circular depressions surrounded by a range of hills, formed by the metamorphic aureole or hornfels. Granite is nearly always massive (lacking internal structures), hard and tough, and therefore it has gained widespread use as a construction stone. The average density of granite is 2.75 g/cm3 and its viscosity at standard temperature and pressure is ~4.5 1019 Pa·s The word granite comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a crystalline rock.

Stone pavers, beautiful and durable - is one of good choices for a stone walkway



Stone pavers, beautiful and durable - is one of good choices for a stone walkway. Pavers are rich in color and come in a limitless palette of custom colors. Textures are varied from cobble and old world to tumbled and reclaimed brick. Cobbled pavers bring all the best of European design to your yard. Old World pavers look distressed and worn for that antique look.




Don’t be afraid of color. There’s no mystery to figuring out the perfect hues for your new walkway. The best advice when choosing a stone for your walkway is to select hues which work in harmony with your home environment. Stones a few shades lighter than the color of your house won’t compete for attention. Gray-toned stones used with brick houses eliminate the urge many of us have to try to match everything. Brick-colored stones and pavers add warmth to wood or stone houses. You can avoid monotony by combining two colors or by using blended colored stones such as flagstone or pavers.

About tumbled pavers and how to choose the paver colors


Tumbled pavers are also know as cobblestone pavers. They can be uneven on the surface or smooth. Although they often are called cobblestone pavers, they are not true granite cobblestone pavers.



These are sometimes used on a cobblestone driveway or driveway apron. However, concrete pavers can be used to to mimic the real deal.Beveled pavers have what looks like a chiseled, smooth edge. They are a clean cut look and are not tumbled.


Paver Colors


When selecting a color, one of the first things I do is look at both the paver color and the color of your house. You want the color of both to blend or contrast exceptionally well together.


•If you have a white clapboard house, there are many colors that will look well. You can use grays, beiges, browns, carmel and rust.


•Sometimes it is more challenging. This would be the case with a brick house. In this case, take a look at the color of the grout. Gray grout and brick looks well with gray pavers. Beige grout lends itself to those that are more of a beige color.


•A beige or taupe colored house - use the same color paver with another color running through the paver or add a contrasting color into the paver mixture.

•A stone house will lend itself to more of a solid colored concrete paver, unless you can really get pavers with various color that match almost perfectly.


•The best thing to do is get some samples and look at them next to your home. Be sure to get enough (eight or more) so that you can tell. If you only have a couple of pavers it won't give you a clear picture.

Enhance Your Home With Leecastone's Cobblestone Pavers

Enhance Your Home With Leecastone's Cobblestone Pavers


If you are looking for paving ideas and designs with a unique and striking appearance that will transform your home or commercial property, then Europave’s  cobblestone pavers (Vienna Cobble™) are a stunning and beautiful alternative. Whether you’re looking for pavers for your pool, driveway, garden, walkway or patio our timeless, elegant, cobblestone will transform your outdoor living area and bring a touch of European elegance and style to your home. Vienna Cobble™ also makes an attractive feature when used in conjunction with other types of pavers.



Manufactured from a concrete and limestone aggregate mix, with different oxides used to provide a range of colours, Vienna Cobble™ is durable, low-maintenance and easy to install.  Each individual cobblestone is linked together with nylon cord, to form cobble sheets of approximately 1.2m by 0.4m in size. They can also be easily bent to fit most curved areas, hence eliminating the need for expensive and dangerous cutting equipment and again making the whole installation process that much easier.

To infill the gaps between the cobbletones we recommend either Cracker Dust or Pave-Lok Gel Set. Pave-Lok is lightly bonded jointing sand specially formulated to allow rapid filling of vertical joints between flexible pavers. The benefits of Pave-Lok is that it helps retain integrity and stability of the joint, minimises rain and wind erosion, retards weed growth and is quick and easy to apply.

Cracker Dust is a fine crushing of local blue metal, also known as Crusher Dust or Blue Metal Dust. It is considerably cheaper than Pave-Lok and also more porous, hence suits areas requiring good water drainage, such as an area where you want to park and wash a boat. Some people also prefer the colour of Cracker Dust (Grey) versus the sandstone colour of Pave-Lok. Cracker Dust is more prone to weeds and is not suited to sloped areas where heavy runoff will wash the material free.

We recommended that a good quality sealant should be applied to the Cobble, after installation. A sealant helps protect the cobble from scratching, chipping and stains. Alternatively many choose not to use a sealant so that the cobblestone has a more rustic, natural appearance.
