There is no question that choosing natural stone pavers is the best option for your outdoor areas, but it’s important for you to know what they are, the different types of stone pavers we offer, what benefits they have and where they are best suited to. If used correctly, stone pavers can add great value to the area and are commonly being used in backyards and outdoor areas all over Melbourne and Geelong.

Stone pavers are stones that are used to build flat, easily accessible surfaces for walkways, backyards, pool decks and alfresco areas. We recommend these areas because the thickness of the natural stone paver is ideal for areas with a high level of use. Unlike manufactured concrete and brick pavers, natural stone pavers do not always come in identical sizes, giving a natural, rustic, look. The variations add to the beauty of stone pavers and are the perfect addition to your Melbourne or Geelong backyard.


At RMS, we supply granite pavers, bluestone pavers, travertine pavers and sandstone pavers— in order of strength. Of course, in most cases, you are looking for a paver that fits your design and complements the area where you want to lay them, but it’s also important to note the way in which they are laid depends on what kind of traffic the area will be receiving. For example, if you are laying the pavers in an area with low foot traffic like a courtyard that is mostly used in the warmer months, a sand base is acceptable. If however, the pavers are being laid on a driveway, a concrete base needs to be used. Our specialists are always available to assist you in your selection to fit.

The beauty of stone pavers cannot be beaten. There are a number of reasons why people are drawn towards this option, the biggest one being that manufactured pavers just won’t cut it. Choosing concrete pavers might be cheaper, but natural stone pavers never lose their colour and diverse colour and texture variations add natural beauty to the pavers. Another reason that stone pavers are the best choice is that they are an investment in your property. They are one of the most durable materials available; some Roman roads paved with them can still be seen today.
