Granite Paving Slabs from London Stone

Granite paving slabs are renowned for their exceptional quality and timeless appeal, making them a favourite choice for both modern and traditional landscapes. London Stone offers an extensive range of granite paving options that bring sophistication, durability, and versatility to any outdoor space. Our granite paving is meticulously sourced and crafted to meet the highest standards, ensuring a beautiful and long-lasting addition to your garden, driveway, or patio.

Comprising of three unique colours to suit your design style, our Black Granite paving is finished with a sawn, sandblasted and brushed top surface texture, giving subtle movement through each slab. Our Silver Grey and Dark Grey Granites meanwhile, are finished with a sawn and flamed surface, leaving them with a slight glint and light sparkle.

With a tight grain and even texture, granite also has a sawn edge, being ideally suited to the crisp lines of modern designs, with a minimal 5mm joint width. The colour of granite paving is very consistent, adding to its suitability for an ultra-modern space, where its subtle sparkle adds lightness and character. Granite has also long been a traditional paving material and slips comfortably into traditional settings too, especially in combination with setts.

Why Choose Granite Paving?

1. Durability and Strength

Granite is an igneous rock (cooled and solidified volcanic lava) meaning it is one of the hardest natural stones available, known for its durability and strength. It is highly resistant to wear and tear, making it an excellent choice for high-traffic areas. Whether it's for a driveway, pathway, or patio, granite paving slabs will withstand the test of time and maintain their stunning appearance.

2. Low Maintenance

Granite's low porosity means it absorbs minimal water, making it highly resistant to stains and easy to clean. A simple wash with water and a mild detergent is usually enough to keep granite paving looking as good as new. Its natural resistance to moss and algae growth further reduces the need for regular maintenance.

3. Aesthetic Appeal

The tight grain and uniform texture of granite give it a sleek, contemporary look. Available in a range of colours from light to dark grey, granite paving slabs can complement any design style. The subtle sparkle of the stone adds a touch of elegance, making your outdoor space look refined and luxurious.

4. Versatility in Design

Granite paving is incredibly versatile and can be used in a variety of design applications. It is available in different finishes, including sawn and flamed, and sawn, sandblasted and brushed, allowing you to create the perfect look for your project. If you're after a smooth, modern surface with a slightly textured finish, granite will meet your aesthetic needs.

Installation and Maintenance Tips

1. Proper Preparation

Ensure the ground is well-prepared before laying granite paving slabs. A stable sub-base is crucial for preventing movement and ensuring longevity. We recommend using a high-quality sub-base material and compacting it thoroughly. See our article giving an overview of a professional installing granite paving.

2. Jointing and Sealing

Using the right jointing material is essential for a neat finish and to prevent weed growth. London Stone recommend Larsen GPM which is a pre-mixed mortar that is available in a selection of colours. If you decide to use a resin jointing compound, take extra care during the cleaning off process to avoid the resin particles getting trapped in the textured surface finish of the Granite.

3. Ongoing Maintenance

Although granite is low-maintenance, regular cleaning will help maintain its appearance. Sweep the surface to remove debris and wash it with water and a mild detergent. Avoid using harsh chemicals that could damage the stone.
