I like the way granite looks. It's one of the main reasons why I want to have it incorporated into my landscape. It's good to know that this type of stone will stand up to vehicle loading and traffic. Although that probably won't be an issue, it's good to take into account. http://www.aussierockmen.com.au/newpage

I have been to every granite and stone vendor in Nashville TN and surrounding areas. When I mention granite for walkways, they look at me as if I have 2 heads. Granite is only offered for countertops in this area; what's worse, people here refuse to accept that granite can be safe underfoot depending on the finish. It's so discouraging.

You should also mention that is is extremely dense and difficult to cut with a stone saw as a con to granite!
