The Challenge

To provide a robust and visually pleasing driveway that complemented the house design.

The product would have to be cost effective when compared to natural stone or other paving alternatives.

The product would have to be a colour that is vibrant, low maintenance and not conducive to marking by repeated traffic following the same route.

The product would have to be aesthetically pleasing and offer some distinctive architectural features.

The Solution

Roadstone supplied 250 m² of 60mm Castlestone curragh blend paving, 10m² of 60mm Castlestone charcoal blend paving and 120m of Castlestone curragh blend Kerbs to this family dwelling.

Roadstone also supplied 20 tonnes of laying grit for the paving and 100 Kgs of sand in 20Kg bags, to joint the paving. All the materials were supplied locally from Roadstone’s paving plant in Gooig

The paving was laid on 6mm grit and jointed with a kiln dried sand which was sympathetic to the paving colour.

The Result

The blended colour of the paving helps to disguise any repeated tyre tracks following the same route daily. If a monotone colour was used tyre tracks would become evident over time.

The paving provided a durable paving product and can accommodate light traffic and turning areas and requires minimum maintenance or protecting from the elements.

The feature of an inset charcoal grey band subtly delineates the drive way while the blended colour large Castlestone kerbs provide a strong robust border for the driveway.


Always ensure that the client has viewed and visited a similar project and is happy with the product to be supplied. This is more important when dealing with vibrant paving colours like Curragh Blend.

A blended colour paving as opposed to monotone colour reduces maintenance.
