Natural Setts Driveways
The ultimate in Driveway sett, giving any home a premium look and touch of luxury
Natural Stone Setts are small blocks of natural stone in a range of colours, sizes and rock types. These are the ‘Hovis’ style stones, popularly referred to as cobbles. Their durability is in no doubt many of our historic towns have streets many hundreds of years old made of these setts and still going strong.
”Driveway Setts and Cobbles are available in a wide range of stone types, allowing for various designs to suit your vision of the perfect driveway”
Modern concrete sett blocks are a cheaper alternative to stone setts. There is a wide range available, including flat, tumbled blocks, domed-top blocks and textured surface blocks. All can be screed bedded and sand-jointed, reducing labour costs and making them a cost-effective alternative to reclaimed or new stone
Nowadays, new setts are produced to regular dimensions in a wide variety of finishes and are often laid in the same manner as modern concrete block paving. The reclaimed stones can be difficult to lay, mostly because of their inherent randomness, but whether new or reclaimed, when they have been laid correctly, they are a beautiful sight and make superb paths and driveways.
As with many other small element paving units, they offer possibilities for design. Their natural colouring, which will not fade as do some concrete dyes, and the range of textured finishes bring an extra dimension to paving design, whether it be the re-creation of traditional cobbled streets or a unique and original design
”With granite sett, you can ensure that there will be no cracking due to subsidence or damage from the elements. Granite will last up to ten times longer than your average block paving”

What Our Customers Say
Just had Darren and his lads from ABEL LANDSCAPES round to build me a waterfall that flows into my pond. Cannot fault these guys, they were very professional in their approach yet friendly at the same time. Nothing was too much trouble if I wanted a rock moved to a different position they were only willing to help. Pictures were taken at different stages of the job and sent to Darren to meet his approval. All in all, a great job must say I’m overly pleased with what ABEL achieved, and in a short timescale. The lads were really friendly and cleaned up after they finished each day. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone. 10 out of 10.Mr & Mrs Jones, Warrington
