In 1988 I installed this driveway in Manhasset Nassau county long island it was my first paving stone driveway installation in the usa.
The stones we used were Grinnell multicolor cobblestone with a double row of Holland stone in charcoal color. This costumer was one of the very first long islanders to have a paving stone driveway installed Grinnell started to manufacture pavers 1987 just a year earlier and it was one of the first manufacturers in new jersey to open up. The base material used was blue stone blend and one inch of sand was laid and the pavers were laid over it. The pavers were manufactured 3 inches thick; it was not until later that the standard sizes became 2 and 3/8. This driveway is 23 years old and it is in very good conditions accept the weathering on the pavers which is normal for a 23 year old driveway. when i installed this driveway i was 21 years old,Today is July 18 2011 and I am sure that I will be going back in 23 more years and take another picture and this driveway will still be there. After 17 years the clients moved in to a new house in sands point and I built their driveway and pool patio there too .
