The Q&A Archives: Paving Stones

Question: What tool and method do I use to cut paving stones?

Answer: Paving stones may need to be cut to fit curves, corners and angles, or to go around objects. Mark the paving stones and cut them with a diamond-tip-blade masonry saw for the cleanest results. A guillotine paving-stone splitter or mallet and chisel also may be used. Cut paving stones to fill any remaining gaps to maintain patterns. Gaps less than 3/8 inch can be filled with sand.
