Setts

Hi all, hope the warmer weather is inspiring you. I wanted to know who out there is familiar with laying old stone setts or cobbles, i have a large area to do, approx 150 m sq, what would be the best approach for laying, it is a driveway so needs to be well bedded, i wanted some advise on laying methods and sub base materials, also best way to joint, any ideas on timescale to complete this sort of area, any advice or tips will be most grateful, thanks

  • Customer of mine had a drive of reclaimed granite setts, bedded on about 6" of mortar and then jointed with hot 'tar'. Looked very well. (I didn't do it, so not sure exactly what they poured in the gaps). ....and then i googled it and found: http://www.pavingexpert.com/jointing09.htm
