Steps & Stair Treads
There are many ways to use Nicolock Paving Stones products when creating stairs or walking paths. Irregular Steps are popular because their seemingly random shapes look like natural stone right off the pallet — but the secret is that they fit perfectly together for easy installation. Many other steps are available for a down-to-earth or high luxury style. There are smooth Roma Steps with a paver-shield™ finish, chiseled Rockface Treads, Thermal Treads and more in many sizes and color options.
We’ve also developed paving stone steps for winding your way across the yard. Nicolock Stepping Stones are a delightful solution to prevent grass, gravel and mulch from getting stomped down. For a rustic look resembling natural-cut wood, use our Log Sleepers. They can be spaced out along pathways or turned into a patio stone.
The Best Hardscape Steps
Every step paver we sell is manufactured following a state-of-the-art process. The unique technology is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Visit the Nicolock Blog for information about paver installation and other hardscaping topics.
To prevent moss and weeds from growing on your stone steps, spray them with an anti-fungal solution or use a weed barrier fabric at the base of the steps. Do not use salt to prevent weeds from growing on your stone steps as salt can damage the stone.
The cost of installing stone steps in a garden or yard will vary depending on the size and complexity of your project. Consult a professional for an estimate to get a better idea of what installing stone steps in your garden or yard will cost.
When installing or using stone steps, make sure that the steps are securely fastened into place, as loose stones may cause trips or falls. Additionally, ensure that any edges are smooth and free of debris so no one gets injured. A handrail may be required in certain circumstances.
Stone steps are secured during installation using mortar beneath the step. Broken or loose steps can be repaired using mortar or a high-quality epoxy adhesive depending on the nature of the repair.
In order for stone steps to be stable, they should be built on top of compacted soil or a layer of crushed stone and leveling sand.
