Indian sandstone is one of the most popular products used for gardens in the UK because of its traditional colours, durability and price. This natural stone is ethically sourced and delivered directly from the factory in India and is perfect for garden patios and pathways.
Our Raj blend is a natural sedimentary patterned stone characterised by a rich blend of brown and light green-grey tones that, when combined, create a beautiful finish that will blend effortlessly with most external areas.
These paving slabs are uncalibrated, which means that they have not been through a calibration process and will typically vary in thickness between 17mm and 25mm. This makes uncalibrated paving a lower cost option if your garden landscaping project is on a budget.
Raj blend is a hard wearing sandstone with slight variations in grey colouring and patterning, which means each paving stone is completely unique. The riven surface provides excellent slip resistance and is ideal for creating a patio or exterior space where a more traditional or rustic style is desired.
Natural sandstone paving is colourfast, unlike concrete paving, and is of great value as it is typically lower in cost than other riven concrete paving materials.
Sandstone is also permeable, which means it is not impervious to spills and weathering. Your stone can be protected using Ceetect Aqua, our water-based sealant, that will also minimise the impact on the colour and natural appearance of your sandstone paving.
This classic sandstone patio pack comes in four different sizes to create random patterns on a patio or pathway area.
In July 2013 it became a legally mandated obligation for natural stone products used in construction to be covered by the harmonised European standard, which means all the products offered by Stone & Surfaces Direct are CE marked. This means all our natural stone paving flags comply with BSEN1341:2012, and for modular natural stone tiles for interiors to BS EN 12057:2015.
