Magic Landscaping, Inc. Put Final Touches on Stunning Stone Cliff Grey Patio in Ramsey, NJ
The laying of this stunning Unilock Sandstone patio in Ramsey NJ, by Unilock Authorized Contractor, Magic Landscaping, Inc. has now been completed, with the final touches to the jointing now underway.
In keeping with the wet-lay of the base, mortar has been used as a jointing material, as opposed to jointing sand. The mortar used for the jointing has been hand pointed to ensure meticulous coverage. Many contractors prefer this method of jointing over wet-grouting, where mortar is spread over the entire surface before it is scrubbed clean. This is because hand pointing allows greater precision and ensures that no voids exist between the pavers. Once hand pointing is completed, excess mortar is removed and the paver is wiped clean with a damp sponge or cloth to prevent staining of the paver’s surface.
Also worth noting is how the edges of the wet-lay base have been smoothed off at a steep angle. This serves the visual purpose of neatening the finish, and allows rainwater to flow off the patio and into the cutout plant beds without it being able to seep beneath the pavers.
For this inviting backyard patio, the paver in question is Unilock Sandstone in the Stone Cliff Grey color option. As part of the Unilock range of Premium Quality Natural Stone, Stone Cliff Grey Sandstone features outstanding flexural strength, low water absorption, and excellent resistance to freeze-thaw cycles. In addition Premium Quality Natural Stone is ethically sourced, and its surface is treated to ensure a long-lasting aesthetic.
With the lion’s share of work on this patio completed, only the final touches remain. Still to be installed are the plant bed lighting fixtures which will be fitted to the previously prepared cables. In addition, new planting arrangements will revitalize the look of the integrated plant beds and give this already stunning space an additional splash of natural color.
