Some tips on Laying Circular Paving Stones

Leave a comment

Paving StonesCircular paving stone designs are becoming an increasingly popular feature in patio and driveway design in both commercial and domestic projects.  One of the main reasons for this is that they can give your patio or driveway a real focal point.

When laying circular paving stones you would follow much of the same steps and procedures as when laying standard paving however, there are a couple of extra steps that you should take when laying circular paving stones that will ensure that your circular paving is laid exactly the way that you want it to be. One of these steps is to carry out a “dry run” of laying your circular paving stones. This will help you determine if the area that you have allocated for your paving design is big enough. It will also help you determine what order the paving stones should be laid as sometimes there may be a complex design in the centre of the circular stone paving which means that the slabs may need to be laid a certain order.
