Cobble stones were once almost exclusively used for public streets, but soon people began to notice the beauty and usefulness of cobble paving for their own private homes, including their driveways. Cobble stones have traditionally been defined as rounded stones formed by glaciers or the sea, and are graded and sold in different sizes.
Stone used for cobble paving can be laid end on end, or tight packed together. Cobbles can be hard to walk on and have often been laid as deterrents to pedestrians as well as for decorative reasons. This makes some people worry that they’re too bumpy for a car’s tires as it moves up and down the driveway, but the cobbles offered by S&N Granite are perfect for a driveway. Indeed, their rough finish gives traction to a car’s tires, especially on wet days when granite can be slippery. In rainy weather or fair, they will always give a property that touch of elegance that makes people take notice.
