Driveway – Residential & Landscaping


The products that are mostly used for driveways are either the porphyry cubes, or tiles with split or sawn edges.

The porphyry cubes can be irregular in shape, in order to be installed in the traditional Italian porphyry cobblestone way  (overlapping arches or either fan shape), or regular in size 4″x4″ (to be installed in straight lines). The tiles can be installed at the same width, or alternating different widths.

The borders are usually embellished and detailed with an orthogonal line of tiles or binders and curbstone.

Considering the compressive strength of porphyry stone (30.000 psi), and the average type and quantity of traffic in these areas, the thickness of 2” (with a nominal variation from 1 ½” to 2 ½”) is the best choice, when installed on dry pack. If the installation in on sand, then thickness 3” (from 2 ½” to 3 ½”) is required.
