Why choose Yorkstone over cheaper alternatives?
Yorkstone has many benefits and is favourited by landscapers across the country. For almost 200 years, Yorkstone has been the nation’s favourite choice of paving stone.
With a proven record of durability, longevity, strength and slip resistance, Yorkstone is an excellent choice when it comes to long lasting luxury outdoor paving.
There are many cheaper alternatives on the market that are imports from countries such as China, Spain, Italy etc. These alternatives are cheaper for a reason, and you will be compromising on the quality, durability, longevity and strength of the stone.

Do you have any advice when it comes to choosing what material to use for my project?
Our advice when looking for which product to use for your project is, always do your research! There are certainly cheaper alternatives within the marketplace but these include the likes of Indian paving which is brittle, not suitable for our UK climate, easily breakable and so on. Not to mention the carbon emissions when importing from India, as well as the child labour unfortunately involved. York Stone however is prized for its high durability and quality, there is York Stone street paving across half of the UK laid more than 100 years ago which is still in great condition. Genuine York Stone is in high demand and the value of it is also ever increasing, due to it becoming harder to obtain. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for!

Should I use mortar, grouts or any other alternative when laying my stone?
It is a personal preference, however, mortar weathers with the stone which looks better and ages together overtime. Whereas grout tends to stay pristine for longer, which can look slightly odd when the stone has been laid for some time.
