Garden paving

Things to remember:

Stone always brings an additional feature to a garden. Natural, clean and enjoyable, it offers two types of benefits:

  1. an aesthetic one, in that comes in a variety of forms and multiple colors;
  2. a utilitarian one, in that it helps you keep your shoes clean in the rain and avoids bringing mud into your home.

What is more, it is easy to keep clean, because you can keep it as new by just spraying with water from time to time. Stone can therefore be featured in many places, decorating your garden and providing safe footpaths and driveways.

Sedimentary rock

Sedimentary rocks are the result of the accumulation and compacting of mineral debris (i.e. other stones), organic debris (animal remains and vegetation, fossils), or chemical precipitation.

They are exogenous rocks, i.e. rocks which are formed on the surface of the Earth. Sedimentary rocks are present on 75% of the surface of the Earth's continents, but when considering its crust as a whole (from the surface to a depth of 22 miles (35 km)), they only represent 5% of its total volume.

The main sedimentary rocks are:

  • sandstone
  • sand
  • siltstone
  • loess
  • clay
  • shale
  • coal
  • oil
  • limestone
  • chalk
  • etc.
