Cobbles & Blocks

Cobblestones & Belgian Blocks (Belgium Blocks) are the oldest masonry products used for paving stones and edges. Cobbles have rounded edges as a result of originally being cut from river rocks, but anything cut with rounded edges can be considered a cobble shape as manufactured paving stone companies produce their own cobble shaped products. Belgian blocks are cut from granite and are truly block shaped. They used to be used for ship ballasts on vessels that primarily traded between America and Belgium. That earned them the names Belgian or Belgium blocks even though they don’t originate from Belgium.
