I am about to replace a concrete drive with either Marshalls driveset cobbles or natural stone setts. I have been told that the stone sets need to be laid on grit sand and cement @ 3:1 and pointed with smooth sand and cement @ 4:1 and that a resin pointing cannot be used because it is designed to allow water to drain through and the water could possibly freeze lifting the setts.
My questions are:
I am concerned that the driveset system will end up with two ruts where the car runs in and particularly where it is parked. Will this ultimately happen? I have seen many block paved drives where this has happened
I think that the resin pointing will look nicer than sand and cement with the stone setts. Why can't resin pointing be used? If it is will water seep through, freeze and lift the sets?
