Setts are an incredibly dynamic and adaptable paving element which can have many different applications. Essentially a sett is much like a cobble stone although they are more commonly used individually or in rows rather than to cover a large area although this can of course be done as well. These setts as pictured here are from the StoneFlair by Bradstone range and are made of natural granite with a luxurious and modern dark grey colour. These granite setts are also available in two other shades however, silver grey and black to create a stunning monochromatic mix.
Larger format, natural granite paving slabs are also available from the StoneFlair range but these have diamond machine cut edges for a cleaner appearance, much unlike these setts which have a cobble stone like style with a rougher, worn texture. Although there are of course some irregularities with these rough blocks, they do keep fairly consistent dimensions of 100mm x 100mm x 50mm making them square setts that are 50mm thick. With these consistent dimensions, two or three of the grey colours available could be mixed two create a random blend or a precise checkerboard pattern.
As mentioned, setts have many different potential uses and could be used to create a number of features. They are primarily used to create borders such as around the small pond as pictured above but could also be used to outline paved area or to form dividing lines between sections. They can also be laid en masse to create a large paved area such as a driveway although I’d recommend using a similar option such as Bradstone Carpet Stones Charcoal Cobble which are sold on nets to make laying quicker. However natural granite as used in these StoneFlair setts is of course a more favourable material and may give a better finish if you have the means.
