Cobblestones and Why Thickness Matters

19 June 2018


Cobblestones vary in thickness and quality. Importing thicker cobblestones, at least 30mm, ensures they will be durable enough to withstand heavy vehicle traffic in outdoor areas such as commercial spaces, paths, and driveways, providing peace of mind.

Cobblestones can vary in thickness, with some being as thin as 20mm and others as thick as 50mm or more. The thickness of a cobblestone can affect its durability and ability to withstand heavy traffic, which is why thicker cobblestones are often preferred for use in outdoor areas such as commercial spaces, paths, and driveways.


When choosing cobblestones for any alfresco space whether it be commercial or residential, it’s important to consider:

  1. Durability – Using a thicker cobblestone will increase the durability of the stone particularly when dealing with heavy vehicle traffic and you can be sure they’ll last. A 30mm cobble offers additional strength to those less thick.
  2. Slip resistance – Where slip resistance is a priority, cobblestones should be a serious consideration for outdoor spaces that will encounter heavy foot traffic.
  3. Aesthetic – A beautiful driveway, together with coordinated paths, provide great street appeal and can add value to your property. The key is to ensure the cobblestones complement your design, that they are part of the overall theme.
  4. Ongoing Maintenance – The beautiful thing about cobblestones is that they are relatively low maintenance. If you invest in quality cobbles and a landscape specialist in the first place, your ongoing maintenance should be minimal.
