Stepping stones or, how we call them - "cat steps" from andesite natural stone, can be cut in various sizes, minimum thickness 4-5 cm. The name comes from the method of installation, directly on the ground, without necessarily requiring a concrete support layer beforehand. That’s why these andesite „cat steps” pavements / stepping stones are cut at greater thicknesses (usually 5-7 cm), and are placed only on a layer of compacted sand, with joints large enough between the boards, to prevent forming mud around them and to facilitate water drainage. By using these andesite cat steps, you don't suffocate your garden or yard with unnecessary concrete, you can create your own alley design no matter how twisted it is, and you can reach any corner of your yard or garden easily. Given that andesite has almost no water absorption (0.27% !!!), these cat step tiles have a virtually unlimited lifespan and integrate perfectly into your grass or lawn, delighting your eyes every time you walk through the yard, in "cat steps" :). They can be cut to absolutely any size and thickness, but, in order to be easily maneuvered during installation, and in order not to unnecessarily load the landscape, usually the andesite cat steps are cut to lengths of approximately 100-120 cm, with widths of 30-35 cm and necessarily over 5 cm thick, in order to be strong enough if two or more people sit simultaneously on such a board. The recommended finish for the andesite cat steps is flamed, so as to prevent slipping, and the very good drainage around them through the sand on which they are placed makes the appearance of your yard or garden to be permanently clean, neat, by a raw green, no mud.
