Sandstone has been a favourite among landscapers and designers for years; it is only recently that options such as granite and limestone have become more readily available.
If you have a large area to pave, then granite can look a little tiresome due to the fact that each stone is exactly the same as the next. In contrast, each sandstone block can tell a story; they all have different lines, undulations and shades, making each sandstone patio unique. There are many different shades to pick from, including grey, yellow (sandstone colour) and autumn brown.
When buying sandstone paving, try to make sure the joints are as small as possible. If you opt for a cheaper grade of stone, you will end up with large, unsightly joints.
