Quantities, Pricing and Transport

QUANTITIES

Mundstone’s  natural split grey granite cobblestone are available in quantities from as little as 1square metre for the smallest garden projects to several hundred square metres or more for larger commercial projects.

The cobblestones come in two sizes, rectangular 200mmx100mmx50mm (almost the same as a regular house brick) and square (half the rectangular size) 100x100x50.

1 sq metre requires 50 rectangular pavers @ 200x100, or 100 square pavers at 100x100x50. Rectangular blocks weigh approximately 2.5 kg, and square blocks weigh approximately 1.3 kg. This equates to around 125 kilograms per square metre.

Pricing

Pavers cost $2.50 each (rectangular) and $1.50 each (square) up to 1 sq mtr then for quantities greater than 1 sq mtr it is $120.00 per square metre.

Business’s and developers are welcome to discuss trade volume agreements.

Cartage

General public are welcome to come to our premises in Mundaring to view and inspect our collection, and take as much or as little as desired. We are happy to discuss your needs with you and help you determine what best fits your requirements.

Delivery can be arranged for larger quantities and are subject to cartage contractor pricing at the time

Commercial orders over 180 sq mtr (26 ton)  may be subject to delivery lead times, however, whether for private or commercial requirements we always welcome your inquiry at any time and appreciate your interest in our product.

DIY: How To Install Cobblestone Pavers

Laying cobblestones is not difficult! Anyone can do it! You can find numerous tutorial videos online.  The key to a successful job that will endure for all time, is in the preparation. Every laying job is different. Paving for heavy traffic areas must have a stable sub grade.

Make sure the ground is firm and level with plenty of drainage for water, before setting to work on your Cobble Setts project. If you want the area to be level with the surrounding ground, then, once the area is marked out, you can begin digging out the ground to a depth of around 230mm.

You can install cobblestone on a sand bed, semi dry screed or concrete bed. Installation on semi dry screed replaces the sand and gravel underlay with cement. The sand bed is mostly used for installing cobblestone in heavy-traffic areas (including car traffic); for low / medium traffic pavings, concrete bed underlay is used. However, to keep away from shifted and cracked screed, a sand and gravel underlay is necessary after the initial excavation.

  1. 1.      Check drainage – it is essential to avoid water retention beneath the stones, therefore water drainage should be checked  

    2.      If necessary, build a water drainage; a concealed ditch might be enough. Some projects will only need cladding a lower area on the side of the road, for water drainage.

    3.      Check utility routes for avoiding intersections.

    4.      Dig trenches for achieving installation depth, associated with drainage system.

    5.      Continue with digging trenches until reaching compact ground and avoiding soft soils. For a pedestrian traffic area, a 5 cm thick gravel bed is enough, which means the trench must be dug up to a depth of 18 – 23 cm. For car traffic and the areas surrounding the pools a bed of 18-20 cm is necessary, thus extending the digging depth. Dig a wider surface if kerbstones are installed on the edges.

    6.      Outline surface with wooden stakes and rope.

    7.      Measure surface (length, width, depth) with measure tape.

    8.      Choose gravel (crushed stone or ballast) for the bearing layer (usually 1.5 – 2 cm size). For two load-bearing layers, choose a gravel with different grain size, lower layer having larger grain size.

    9.      Calculate quantities for gravel and sand according to supplier's info.

    10.  Choose cobblestone. For car traffic over 3.5 t, 8 cm thickness cobblestone is required; traffic below 3.5 t can also use 7 cm thickness cobblestone. Calculate necessary for cobblestone, by adding something extra.

    11.  Outline area with wooden slats.

    12.  Over a stable bed pour over a 2-3 cm sand layer. Level it and compact the area. Lay out the second layer of sand bed.

    13.  Install kerbstones.

    14.  Place cobblestone over second layer of sand. Cobblestone is laid 2 cm above the final level of pavement.

    15.  Press it with a 25 kg rubber mallet or automatically piece by piece, without splashing surface with water. Adjust bumps.

    16.  Spread sand all over the surface, sprinkle with water abundantly, pushing sand into the joints with a brush until filling.

    17.  If necessary, press it again with the rubber mallet.

  1. Measure surface with tape measure, then spray the outline for the edging.
  2. Remove vegetation from surface.
  3. Similar to sand bed installation, have a sand bed on bearing gravel.
  4. Dig a trench in the outlined area, considering screed a solid element and stone having a firm stand.
  5. Compact and level the sand from the surface (7-8 cm from necessary height).
  6. Install kerbstones at the edges, for preventing lateral shifting.
  7. Have the screed ready (pre-mixed screed / screed prepared on-site with cement, fine grain sand and water).
  8. Pour screed and use “a comb”’; layer thickness is 2 cm. Screed the concrete for a 20° slope (for water drainage).
  9. Start installation from a corner. Install stone above the necessary level. Level it with a rubber mallet. You are also allowed to use spacers.
  10. Have a guiding string to avoid exceeding the outline.
  11. Fill the first row of stones.
  12. Check flatness.
  13. Install the guiding string in the second row and lay out stones.
  14. After installing a couple of rows, check level on both axes and adjust any bumps.
  15. Fill the spaces between stones (a mixture of quartz sand and cement will handle perfect the freeze-thaw cycles) and allow screed to reach its potential.
  16. Create joints by passing a screwdriver between the stones, to shape some convex trenches. These slopes will allow water drainage, if there is a screed slope. Otherwise, material will crack due to water resting on surface during the freeze-thaw cycles.
  17. Remove excess material with a brush.
  18. Allow surface to dry.
  19. Waterproof surface.

Cobblestone Maintenance

Use a natural solution like vinegar and water to kill the weeds. Not only is this gentle on the pavers, but it's also safe for pets and your family. After you get rid of any weeds, fill in the cracks between the pavers with polymeric sand. It holds the pavers together and prevents weeds from coming back.

Cobblestones are pH proof and resistant to stains of chemicals or fuel. Majority of the natural stones like Bluestone, Granite or Sandstone, if sealed properly, resist stain and stay clean. Cobblestone pavers are hence low maintenance.
