The durability of the stone has been proven through time, especially given the abuse the stone can take during the winter from snow plows. We recommend the jumbo or large block sizes for driveway and street applications. We feel that the Belgian block is underappreciated as a landscape stone. It works great as an edging stone for walkways, patios, and planting beds. It is a cobblestone paving stone for garden paths, faucet landing areas, birds' bath pads, etc. This is especially true of the 4" cobblestone we carry at Wicki Stone.
