This project is on a private driveway located in Preston (Melbourne).
Stone Culture installed 40 M2 of 60/80mm top by 40/60mm thick Italian Porphyry Cobblestones in combination with Mexican red porphyry cobbles in a Continuous Arc pattern.
Porphyry Split Tiles 200mm wide (running lengths) 40/60mm thick were used as borders.

The porphyry cobbles were laid on top of a concrete screed 100 mm thick using a mix of 7 parts of river sand to 1 of GP Cement. Cobbles were grouted using a mix of 4 parts of washed sand and 1 part of Builders Cement because of the steep inclination of the driveway.
The range of uses for Porphyry Stone is endless, not only because of their durability and old world Mediterranean appeal. Porphyry is a natural material which is environmentally sound, everlasting and with many design applications from pedestrian paving, driveways, roads to feature walls and landscaping. Porphyry fits all these applications and can be worked into cubes, pavers, tiles, irregular flagging, kerbstones, borders and rustic wall veneer. It is available with sawn or snap cut edges.
The standard for our module size has been set to allow for many designs to be made without cutting or splitting stones.
By combining the range of Porphyry products with other materials, a simple lane, pathway or forecourt becomes an innovative work of art. High compressive strength means Porphyry stone withstands vehicular traffic and are an ideal material for streetscaping.
