How to choose unilock stones

You can also use contrasting colors to create borders on your walkway or driveway. In addition, be sure to consider the size of your patio when choosing unilock stones.
The intensity of the wear and tear that your outdoor space will be exposed to should determine the type of stone you choose. For instance, porous stones are not suitable for uncovered surfaces because they are prone to algae growth. In addition, the stones that you choose for your poolside should be non-skid for safety. All of John Guire Co. unilock stones are slip resistant, have natural feel and hue, and age gracefully.
How do I tell sandstone and limestone unilock stones apart?
Both sandstone and limestone unilock stones are high-quality pavers that can be installed in any walkway, driveway, or patio. However, sandstone and limestone unilock stones have different appearances and texture. Limestone’s finer grain gives it a more subtle texture than sandstone. Whether you choose limestone or sandstone depends on your taste, landscape design, and personal preference for texture and shading.
The right base material can help to stabilize your unilock stones. Sand and stone dust can cushion your patio stones and make the surface permeable. However, they are not the recommended base material for areas with heavy traffic.
Crushed stone makes a great base for areas that receive lots of traffic. However, it is important to use crushed stone that is specifically designed for use as a base material. If you want a temporary base material then compacted soil is a great choice.
