Concrete products are manufactured from naturally occurring aggregates, cement and binders, all of which are subject to colour and texture variation. Variation may occur between batches of the same stone. Some manufacturers include the pointing allowance in the individual slab sizes whereas others include the pointing allowance in the overall pack coverage. The product images shown are as accurate as photographic processes allow and may appear differently in accordance with lighting conditions and screen calibration in addition to the natural variation occurring between batches. Images may not be a true representation of a particular product size or laying pattern. Descriptions provided offer a combination of the manufacturer's and our own opinion of the product's features.
Manmade / Concrete Description:
Manmade or concrete paving is often referred to as reconstituted stone paving. It is formed using one of two methods: Wet-Cast or Pressed. When wet-cast, the concrete mix is poured into moulds and then vibrated to remove air bubbles. This type of paving is a higher end product with a fine finish and is often more ornamental with a slightly tapered or rounded edge. Pressed paving slabs are made with a semi-dry concrete mix and hydraulically pressed to create a functional yet slightly porous slab. They tend to be used for utility purposes such as shed bases, and where aesthetics are not of prime importance. Manmade paving comes in a variety of styles, some that replicate the contours found in natural stone materials and others that offer a contemporary styled smooth appearance. Some of the premium quality manmade concrete materials are finished with a 'stay clean' coating to simplify maintenance. The edge finishes may be straight, chamfered (slightly angled) or tumbled style where the paving is designed to look more rounded, aged or antiqued.
Manmade / Concrete Colours:
Concrete paving has dye within the concrete mix to colour the paving and will often fade over time, especially if cleaned regularly with chemical cleaners. The premium paving products tend to stay true to colour for longer than cheaper concrete paving and may include naturally coloured aggregates within the surface of the stone.

|Stage 1. Dig a trench to the depth of full block plus 150mm for foundation material. Width should be minimum of 2 times the wall thickness (foundation material should extend 85mm to the front and rear of first course block).||Stage 2. Place material (MOT Type 1 or similar) into trench and compact. Spread sand over foundation material. This will make it easier to level first course block.||Stage 3. Position first course blocks side by side to required line, level blocks in both directions.|
Stage 4. Each course must be backfilled accordingly. The backfill zone consists of 300mm of free draining material followed by backfill material. The backfill zone should be at least equal to the wall height.
Stage 5. Lay blocks in a stretcher bond fashion repeating Stage 4 until wall height is achieved (Max. 600mm). Adhere top block to underlying block with Marshalls M-Fix.
