Natural Limestone Paired with Cobblestone Pavers
Natural Limestone from Unilock is high-quality stone perfect for patios, entryways, and walkways. Stones are selected for low water absorption, which will ensure that the stones will stand up to the harshest freeze-thaw cycles. The distinctive cool grays of Unilock Limestone (Hearthstone and Winter Mist, as well as a dramatic Black River) can give your outdoor living space an air of sophistication.
The stones come in large-format sizes that contribute to a serene and expansive setting: 12” x 24”, 24” x 24”, and 24” x 36”.
Unilock natural Limestone paving stones pair perfectly with Courtstone cobblestone-style concrete pavers. The Dawn Mist, Basalt, and Belgian Blue colors could be best suited as accent colors with the Hearthstone and Winter Mist colors, and Pebble Taupe could look stunning next to the Black River Limestone. Courtstone pavers offer a delightful size contrast to the large limestone slabs, and their time-polished sheen and irregular edges give the look of old-world craftsmanship (Reala technology uses casts from real European cobblestones for a hand-cut look, but underneath your hardscape feature would benefit from precision manufacturing that ensures a consistent base for fast installation and superior interlock). Courtstone pavers are available in five sizes: 5” x 5”, 5” x 5¾”, 5” x 6½”, 5” x 7⅜”, and 5” x 8½”.
If you prefer a more substantial and lighter-colored border, Tribeca Cobble pavers from Unilock could be the ideal choice for pairing with Limestone. These pavers are available in Crystalline Basalt and Peppered Granite for a subtle or dramatic border. Choose from the small 5” x 6⅞” or large 5” x 12” size to achieve the look you want.
Finish the look with matching natural Limestone pillar caps, steps, and coping. Both Courtstone and Tribeca Cobble pavers can be used to create a dramatic driveway that ties right in with your patio or walkway!
Natural Sandstone Paired with Brick Pavers
Natural Sandstone from Unilock could give your outdoor living spaces a warm and relaxed look rich with character. It is available in a cool Stone Cliff Grey or two warm colors: Indian Coast or Autumn Harvest. As with Unilock Limestone, you are assured you are getting high-quality material with feature low water absorption and flexural strength for a durable surface. Use Unilock Sandstone for patios and walkways, and complete the look using matching Sandstone pillar caps, steps, and coping.
Brick-style pavers from Unilock are the perfect complement to Sandstone. Their rich, warm colors offer a striking contrast; and the smaller sizes also add to the visual interest of the space.
The slender profile of Mattoni pavers, at just 2⅜” x 9½”, is a wonderful contrast to the large sizes of the Sandstone slabs (at 12” x 24”, 18” x 24”, 24” x 24”, and 24” x 36”). The warm Cocoa Brown and Sable colors are just right for use as borders or accents with Indian Coast or Autumn Harvest Sandstone, and the Dark Charcoal Mattoni could pair perfectly with Stone Cliff Grey Sandstone.
Copthorne pavers give you a more substantial size (2⅝” x 7⅞”) to pair with Sandstone. Burgundy Red, Old Oak, and Burnt Clay pair with Indian Coast or Autumn Harvest, and Steel Blue and Basalt could look stunning next to the Stone Cliff Grey Sandstone.
