The most commonly used material for floor coverings is stone. Why is it so popular. Let’s talk about it today!
1. What is stone paving
The paving stone in the garden usually refers to granite, not marble for interior decoration!
Granite is a structural rock formed by solidification of lava after volcanic eruption after cooling underground. It is a natural ore material and belongs to a natural material that cannot be regenerated in a short time.
The stone paving is a decorative ground paved with block materials processed from these natural granites.
Granite is the most popular, most commonly used and most popular garden paving material in the past ten years, and it is also the most common paving material in our life!
Now, with the country’s emphasis on environmental protection, natural granite mining is strictly controlled, and even many ores are not allowed to be mined. Granite paving is gradually replaced by other artificial imitation materials, and it is declining!
2. What are the commonly used garden stones?
For the courtyard, all the stones used in the garden can be used in the courtyard.
Commonly used courtyard paving stones include: yellow rust stone, golden hemp, sesame black, sesame gray, sesame white, Chinese black, Fuding black, crystal black, Mongolian black, bluestone slab, etc.
Although there are not many types, there are many kinds of surface treatments, such as lychee surface, fire surface, machine-cut surface, natural surface, smooth surface, matte surface, chiseled surface and brushed surface.
Each type of stone has different surface treatment methods, resulting in different textures, and the final effect will also be quite different. We can choose according to our needs when we make the yard.
3. Why is stone paving so popular?
Although stone paving is gradually declining, it still occupies an important position in the hearts of many people. Most garden owners choose stone for paving!
Why is it so popular?
I think there are three reasons:
1. Granite is durable and easy to take care of outdoors
Natural granite is hard, acid and alkali resistant, weather resistant, non-slip, easy to take care of, and durable in outdoor environments.
2. Granite texture is beautiful
Natural granite has a certain texture, most of which are more beautiful and have a certain ornamental value.
3. Granite is cheap
In the era of disorderly mining, there were many large and small granite mines, and the competition was very fierce, which led to the relatively cheap price of granite.
It costs more than ten dollars per square meter, and if it is more expensive, it means tens of dollars per square meter. Everyone can afford it!
4, how to pave the stone
Stone paving requires a concrete underlayment.
Then use stone powder leveling layer to level the concrete cushion according to the finished surface elevation control line.
Finally, stone paving is carried out on the leveling layer.
