SANDSTONE PAVING FOR LANDSCAPING
Commonly requested for flooring applications, sandstone is an exceptional flooring solution due to its durability, slip resistance and thermal ratings, making it a practical and aesthetic choice.
Sandstone pavers are often referred to as ‘stepping stones’ for garden landscaping projects. Pavers and stepping stones are interchangeable terms; there is no difference between the two products except in the way it is laid. Sandstone stepping stones are simply pavers laid and spaced apart; the gaps between the stepping stones are often filled with grass or pebbles to create a pathway.
Gosford Quarries generally recommend various thicknesses for paving projects depending on the intended substrate and application. Whether the stone will be laid on concrete, compressed sand and or gravel or if there will be foot traffic or vehicular traffic will all influence the overall recommendations for thicknesses.

Customisable to the width and length of your space, a solid step means that the sandstone product is profiled out of one solid sandstone piece. The height can also be customised to achieve staggered steps to reach the top of the overall staircase height. An economical and practical solution for any project, solid landscaping steps are Gosford Quarries standard products for sandstone steps. With a split-faced finish on the front and back edge, smooth, sawn, top and bottom and ends, the steps are also available in a range of colours.
Solid sandstone step is the alternative choice for when there are existing stairs that can be refaced to appear like solid sandstone. Available in a variety of sizes, sandstone step treads can be bullnosed, rockfaced, hydrasplit, diamond or gang sawn in the sandstone finish.

SANDSTONE TILING AND CLADDING
Sandstone cladding refers to any material used as a superficial facade intended to enhance the aesthetic visual value of a wall. As a non-load bearing material that covers a surface – think feature walls or fireplaces – sandstone cladding brings texture and visual interest to every project. Sandstone cladding is also useful for weatherproofing and protecting outdoor spaces.

Sandstone flagging or “split flagging” is a sandstone product commonly used to create random, irregular patterned “crazy” paving or “sandstone cobblestone”. Sandstone flagging, as a natural stone product, can also be used as a wall covering, functioning as wall cladding. Choosing Australian Sandstone means every piece of sandstone brings the originality of textural and colour interest to a floor or wall.
There are two main types of flagging: sawn flagging; ‘crazy paving’ and ‘split flagging’.
SANDSTONE CRAZY PAVING
‘Sawn sandstone flagging’, is utilised to create ‘crazy paving’. When considering sandstone crazy paving, irregular pieces of natural sandstone are put together and laid out like a jigsaw puzzle.

‘Split flagging’ features a textured face split directly from the quarry and is untreated. There is no colour selection of this raw material and ranges in thickness. Split flagging is a popular rustic choice for stepping stones and creates natural cobblestone-style paving. Basically, this sandstone product is more of a flat textured stone that can be used as a floor in an outdoor rustic finish design meant to blend in with natural environmental surrounds.
