There are many benefits of choosing Granite Setts; many people ask 'how does Granite Paving compare to Sandstone Paving?' These materials are both natural stone, so come with different characteristics, but Granite tends to be a harder-wearing and longer-lasting stone in comparison to Sandstone, which is slightly softer in nature.

The most popular uses of Cobble Setts, whether Porcelain or Natural Stone, is edging for various garden features. If you are installing Artificial Grass or Fresh Turf in your garden, you might want a border for this feature, to separate it from other areas of the garden.

How to Install Cobble Setts
As mentioned before, in comparison to installing larger paving slabs in your garden, Cobble Setts are a much easier alternative to work with due to their small size and lightweight nature. Hiring a Landscaper is always the safe option, but if you're a confident DIYer, you may be able to do this yourself.
What You'll Need
- Type 1 Limestone (or a similar Aggregate as a sub-base)
- Quality Rake
- Building Sand
- Jointing Compound
- Rubber Mallet
1. After you have chosen where you'd like to place your Cobble Setts, dig out the area at a depth of around 150mm; pulling out any weeds and debris and checking that the ground is dry and level
2. We would suggest using an Aggregate such as Type 1 Limestone as your sub-base, laying it evenly at least 50mm in depth, checking it is as level as possible
3. (Optional) Use a Wacker Plate to compact the aggregate down which ensures a completely solid base
4. Mix your cement together with water and Sharp Sand until it reaches a slurry-like consistency, then spread your cement across the layer of aggregates liberally, working small area by area
5. Put the Cobble Setts where you'd like them to go, using a rubber mallet to press them into place. Ensure you leave a gap of at least 20mm between the Setts.
6. Once the Cobble Setts have been laid, you can start preparing your grout, and joining the stones together.
7. Your grout can potentially take up to 6 hours to fully set, so if rain is due that day, try and cover it with tarpaulin if you can
