When designing your cobblestone driveway, walkway or patio, consider including a classic finishing touch with impressive antique reclaimed granite or limestone curb imported from Europe!
Massive sections of antique limestone and old granite curb can be custom sawn to your specified length and height requirements. Curbing often shows hand chisel markings or appears smooth and worn revealing its wonderful aged patina. Either type of stone is appropriate in all freezing conditions and has already withstood hundreds of years of weather, foot traffic and everyday wear.
Ginormous sections of antique limestone curb sections range from 24″ to 60″ in length and up to 16″ tall. They can also be custom sawn to your specified length and/or height requirements, such as 6″ high to accommodate a concrete base as shown in the image above and below. This charming old curb often shows hand chisel markings and with plenty of character, or is sometimes available with a smooth surface which is beautifully worn, revealing its charming antique patina.
Another option we offer is antique “Granite” curb which is different from limestone, as these are versatile, over-sized (12″ long x 6” wide x 12″ high) rectangle pieces that resemble huge cobbles. Their smaller size allows more flexibility with design, especially small curved areas. Granite curb pieces can also be sawn to accommodate a concrete base. Both the antique reclaimed limestone curb and granite curb are appropriate in all-weather types including freezing conditions.
The photo above and below features a project that selected 200 lineal feet of limestone curb: 6″ wide x 12″ to 36″ random lengths x 6″ sawn height as an authentic border to 3,200 sf of Historic European Cobblestone in Sandstone 6” x 6” x 2 “ sawn bottom for a concrete base installation in Los Angeles, CA.
