Cobblestone Driveway or Cobblestone Apron?

August 14, 2013
BY Gavin Johnston

I was in the beautiful and classic port town of Portsmouth, New Hampshire and remembered that Stone Farm had supplied our Big Dig medium and Big Dig Jumbo reclaimed cobblestone pavers for a small residential project last year. Not sure what to expect, I headed over to historical Pray Street to take a look.

The house, a beautiful antique center chimney colonial as often is the case, sat right on the narrow old street. In order to take the asphalt back from the foundation and to create a sense of separation between home and public street, Matt Gillard of Colonial Brick Works, cut back the asphalt and installed a patchwork patterned cobblestone apron, or is it a cobblestone driveway? I personally think it is a bit of both. In one sense it's an apron and created separation, but since it's location is so close to the street, many people will drive over this and view it as a "common" cobblestone driveway.

What ever you want to call it, these handsome cobblestone pavers really stand out!
