The surface finish resulting after a block is sawn into slabs using a Diamond Saw (Block Saw, Diamond Wire Saw or Diamond Gangsaw) to produce a surface that is generally smooth with probably some saw marking evident.
Achieved by using a Granite gangsaw (metal blade and cutting medium) to cut slabs rather than the diamond sawing method.
The resulting textured is rougher than diamond sawn and can be used as a non-slip surface where low vibrancy is desired. Surfaces can vary from reasonable flat to heavily striated finishes.
A flat to heavily styrated finish with little sheen achieved by scoring the surface with a diamond blade to leave a rough textured surface with relatively uniform parallel abrasions suitable for slip resistant external or internal paving.

Simply as it states, Natural Cut is done by hand. This is the most rustic finish and is best for feature cladding and setts and cobblestones.
European-style cobblestones are now widely used in all external hardscapes. Cobblestones can create accent areas and are suitable for driveways and pathways, or can be used to provide decorative contrast in paving patterns. Generally cobblestones Back to top
