10 Mar, 2022

What are the benefits of granite pavers and curbs?

In our fast-paced lives, we need more stability and closeness to nature. The sturdiness and unique beauty of natural stone have always been a symbol of timelessness. Nowadays more and more people are choosing sustainable and long-lasting natural materials to decorate their homes and gardens. Natural stone pavers and curbs are practical products that combine the beauty and strength of this incredible material.

If you are looking for unique and durable exterior paving options, consider using granite pavers and curbs. Natural stone paving authentically complements the overall look of the space in a way that cannot be replicated by other materials. Bulgarian grey granite in particular is the perfect solution that combines functionality, durability and natural beauty. If you’re wondering what are the benefits of Bulgarian granite pavers and curbs, here’s a list to help you make an informed choice:

  • They are exceptionally durable and will serve many generations to come;  
  • They age beautifully;
  • They require minimal maintenance;
  • They are versatile, with a natural grey colour and textured surface that easily fits all kinds of styles and tastes; 
  • They are easier to apply than concrete or asphalt;
  • An excellent investment that increases the price of the property;
  • An eco-friendly product and naturally fits its surroundings.

 

The prices of Bulgarian grey granite pavers and curbs depend on their size, thickness, and weight. On the Raimar website you will find affordable options that will last a lifetime. We recommend that you contact us to discuss the specifics of your project and advise you on the best purchase options.

 

Where can you use them?

Granite pavers and curbs are designed for outdoor use and high traffic areas. 

Our pavers are made from the strongest natural stone and have a uniform colour – sprayed grey. They are manufactured by hand using a stone-splitting press to shape them. Their characteristic grey colour is a symbol of solidity. A revered material not only by landscape architects and designers, grey granite is the preferred choice of all visionaries and creators who build with a view to the future. Their proverbial resistance to climatic factors, shocks and pressure, makes them an ideal choice for outdoor decorating and paving:

  • Yard paths;
  • Backyards;
  • Gardens;
  • Verandas;
  • Driveways;
  • Parking lots;
  • Sidewalks;
  • Alleys in parks, etc.

 

Curbs are used for pavement edge delineation and support, preventing its displacement. The production process is by manual splitting and shaping using a hydraulic press. The surface is natural, with a fine-grained grey granite colour. They also serve the following purposes:

 

  • delineation of pedestrian walkways, parking lots, squares and streets;
  • delineation of parking spots inside an yard;
  • protection of trees and grass;
  • drainage control
  • aesthetics.

 

Installation is easy. When laid on sand, the correct size for pavers is 10/10/10 cm. The varying dimensions allow the formation of arches with a beautiful arrangement. When laid on a concrete base, the size of the pavers can be 10/10/5 cm. Use granite curbs of the same material to outline, delineate and finish your projects.
