Comprised as a 4-piece set, Portsmouth Cobble features the charm and look of time-honored paving stones enhanced with Color 4D Technology. Each shape is subtly contoured and rolled along the edges while the robust spacers molded into the sides adjoin the units to form a firm, stable interlocked pavement. Portsmouth Cobble can be used as a stand-alone paver for customers who desire the look of a classic cobble walkway or driveway, or as the perfect accent to other paver styles when used as decorative banding and border courses.
While Portsmouth Cobble can be placed in the order of their arrangement on the pallet, the 4 different sizes are intended to replicate natural stone “settes”. As such, achieving a faithful running bond where each course is off-set in the middle from the previous row is not necessary. When installing, re-positon the order of the 4 sizes of stones in a random fashion to achieve the appearance of the pavement you desire. Adjust as necessary. Make sure the units are placed snug to each other with the spacers touching. When ready, compact the pavers into place using a compactor with a urethane pad attached to the bottom plate. If using polymeric sand, follow the sand manufacturer’s directions on sweeping, compacting and activating the sand. For permeable applications, sweep #9 open-graded chip stone into the joints when compacting.
