The origin of Indian Sandstone – Urban Paving

The story of our Indian Sandstone range begins in Rajasthan province, the home of the beautiful colours and textures echoed in our finished products.

Highly acclaimed for its natural beauty, it has long been an indispensable material in many of India’s temples, monuments and palaces, including the Taj Mahal where 10,000 people walk over it every day! Now customers of Urban Paving can add a unique flair to their home with this special product.

Comprising of a wide spectrum of beautiful colours, Indian Sandstone is found beneath ancient sea and riverbeds, a product of sedimentation. It owes its distinctive wavy patterning to many years of layering by wind, waves and glacial movements. Indian Sandstone is a blend of older quartz fragments, other rocks, clays, silica and calcites, which flow together to create its unique look and texture.

Our ethically sourced Indian Sandstone is sourced only from reputable quarries with good practises, and this is managed by regular visits to India by the owners of Urban Paving to meet with suppliers and their workers. It is available in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes, from pavers to tables, urns and spheres for that exceptional finishing touch.

We are your “one stop shop” for all your landscaping and garden supplies. Urban Paving’s core business has always been concrete paving, but over the last 5 years we have also become importers of quality Indian Sandstone. We have a reliable supply line and maintain good stock levels for our key products here in New Zealand. We provide a nationwide delivery service of our classic range, which perfectly complements our Indian Sandstone urns and spheres.
