Product details

Natural Sandstone

Sandstone is a popular choice for garden paving and patios because it is easy to cut and lay yet provides long-lasting and robust performance underfoot. This natural stone is tactile with a textured surface and riven finish, and feels comfortable to walk on. It is hard-wearing and durable, and if laid correctly will last many years.

Patio Paving

Golden Fossil Sandstone is ideal for patios and garden paving - its colouration, stability and fossil textures will provide you with the perfect surface for outdoor living, providing both practical performance and a rich tapestry of beautiful natural stone that alters and adjusts with the seasonal light and weather.

Size-Formats & Pack Options

The Classic Sandstone range offers you a huge degree of versatility. Buff Classic Sandstone is offered in four paving slab size-formats and sold in six pack options:

  • 290 x 290 mm
  • 600 x 290 mm
  • 600 x 600 mm
  • 900 x 600 mm
  • Mini Pack (Mixed Sizes) - 16 Piece
  • Contractor Pack (Mixed Sizes) - 64 Piece

Pointing your patio

Pointing your patio couldn’t be any easier! Gone are the days of time-consuming traditional pointing with sand and cement. Paving Direct recommends using a ‘Brush in Grout’ such as Pavestone Pointfix.

Pointfix is a two part jointing compound. One pack contains epoxy resin within the compound and the other epoxy hardener. Mixing and applying Pointfix is much cleaner and easier than traditional sand and cement mortar, as you simply just mix the contents within the tub and brush into the joints.

Pointfix is available to buy in two options. Either as a single tub to get the exact amount needed, or if you are buying our 18.85 or 20.7 m2 contractor packs, then Pointfix contractor packs will give you perfect coverage and save you money.

Circle Features

In addition to the standard paving packs, Golden Fossil Classic is also available in three sizes of Circle Feature Kits and their corresponding Squaring Off Kits - please see the related products for details.

Calibrated

Golden Fossil Classic is calibrated - these paving slabs have been through a calibration process, so each slab is 22 mm thick. This precision manufacturing will allow the slabs to be laid quicker and more efficiently as all depths are uniform.

Colour Blends

Part of the charm of natural stone slabs is that each one is coloured or patterned differently. When these Golden Fossil sandstone slabs are laid down on your patio or terrace, you’ll have a beautiful natural tapestry blending gentle variations of hue and pattern, to provide you with garden paving that is entirely unique.

The colour variation will also appear differently in changing light and weather conditions, with fluctuations from season to season. Sandstone is naturally a little permeable, so in wet-weather some of the surface water will be absorbed by the stone, making the colouring appear darker.

Golden Fossil blends wheat, golden and light browns with flecks and striations of gold, browns and oranges that give these slabs their “fossil” character and unique patterning.

Fossil Patterning

As with any natural product, quarried sandstone that has been riven, edge-cut and dressed into a slab will vary uniquely from paver to paver. Sandstone is a sedimentary rock that was formed on ancient sea beds over many millions of years. Over that time, unique patterns and variations of sandy deposits on the sea floor were compressed under the weight of the sea and gravity to fuse and form these beautiful stones. The colouring, flecks and patterns of these stones reflect their innate natural beauty.

Indian Sandstone

These pavers are quarried from the highest quality Indian sandstone, where our expert quarrymen select and cut the slabs. With their years of experience, our masons cut and shape the stone to exacting standards, so you can be assured you are getting the highest quality paving in each pack.

Care & Maintenance

Sandstone is permeable, which means it is not impervious to spills and weathering. Therefore, to better protect your stone we recommend using a natural stone sealant such as Pavestone Natural Finish Stone Sealer, which is a water based impregnator that ensures protection against stains and facilitates everyday maintenance.

The Beauty of Natural Stone

Natural stone means natural variation! Please remember that natural stone paving is a processed natural product and therefore has unique and intrinsic elements, markings, features, patterns, hues and tones within the stone that makes each slab distinct. This is the essential characteristic that natural stone offers and what makes it so special, and why it works so well in landscaping and garden design. Each stone is entirely unique, and within each paving pack there is natural variation of each stone. When these individual unique slabs are blended and laid together, you get a tapestry of harmonious, but different slabs. And this natural relationship between the slabs is what gives stone paving its essential charm and beauty.

If you are looking for more uniformity and control of colours and patterns, then porcelain paving or concrete paving might be more what you want.

Light, Weather & Colouring

Natural stone will appear differently in varied lighting conditions, so in bright sunshine versus cloud your patio will have a different appearance. Likewise, the angle of the sun will also change the appearance of your paving. The biggest difference in appearance will be wet versus dry stone. Stone is porous, and therefore, rainfall will penetrate the stone, making it darker and making colours and pigments in the stone appear more vivid. These changes in the appearance are also part of the character you are buying into when you choose stone paving for your patio. It is a natural product, and it is a dynamic canvas that reflects the weather and lighting conditions as they change.

Laying Advice

To install and lay stone patio paving slabs, you'll need to do the following steps:

  1. Measure up and mark out your patio - ensure you calculate both 1) area in square metres (m2)  and 2) the fall (slope) required for your drainage plan.
  2. Dig out the patio area to create the substrate (220 -230 mm depth).
  3. Lay the sub-base of MOT Type-1 hardcore (compacted & 150 mm depth).
  4. Ensure you mix and blend the various paving packs to make sure the patio has a blended look, as pack to pack can vary in hue/colour distribution, so the packs need mixing up to avoid possible colour banding when they are laid.
  5. Coat the slabs' underside with priming slurry to improve their bond and help prevent moisture transfer. As stone is porous, priming slurry will help protect the slabs from moisture transfer and capillary action from beneath the slabs.
  6. Trowel-in and lay a bedding course of mortar mix (50 mm depth) immediately prior to laying each slab.
  7. Lay the paving slabs on to the mortar bed and tamp down. Ensure you leave the desired joint spacing between the slabs and the slabs are “level” to the fall.
  8. Leave to set for 24 hours, so the mortar mix can cure enough for you to walk on the slabs.
  9. Fill the joints between the paving (pointing) with jointing compound.
  10. Optional: protect your paving by sealing the slabs with a purpose made sealant (natural finish or colour enhancing).

To calculate the areas of paving in square-metres (m2), the amount of sub-base hardcore or the amount of sand and cement you'll need for the mortar mix bedding course, please refer to our paving calculators.

Care & Maintenance

Stone is a porous material and contains tiny capillaries and micro-fissures throughout its structure. Consequently, stone paving is susceptible to water-based chemical erosion (acidic corrosion), physical erosion (frost action), and from staining from waterborne grime, salts and other mineral and particulate deposits. Therefore, as the UK has high winter humidity (generally 80-90%) and damp conditions are the norm, we recommend that you help protect and elongate the life of your paving by sealing the slabs against the water/damp based issues. Our impregnating sealers are designed to enter the capillaries and micro-fissures in the slabs, blocking those spaces to prevent water entering the paving.

  1. Natural finish sealer
  2. Colour enhancing sealer

In addition to sealing the slabs, we recommend ensuring you brush away leaves, dirt and other detritus regularly, especially in the autumn and winter when leaves, twigs, seeds and other windfall materials are likely to fall on your patio. If left on your paving, especially if damp, and worse still, allowed to rot down and become mulch-like, your paving will almost certainly acquire brown stains from the release of tannins from the windfall materials (think a used tea bag left on a kitchen counter for a model of what will happen).

As well as brushing off dirt and windfall materials, give your patio a hose down with water every so often. Use a low-pressure hose or keep any jet-wash far enough away from the slabs to ensure you don't damage them with the high-pressure water jet. For more stubborn stains and the build-up of grime, we recommend using a specialist non-acidic patio cleaner that will help lift out the dirt and grime.
