If you’ve been eyeing a bonding agent for the gravel in your landscape, chances are good you’re weighing up a lot of different factors. How difficult is this one to apply?, How much time does it take to dry? Will you need to get a team together to help, and once you have it down how long can you expect it to last before you need to reapply it?
Loose gravel and garden stones are very popular in the landscaping world. They look nice, add dimension and they are easier to maintain then mulch. But you may not always consider it for your larger projects, as it may seem too costly in both actual cost and in time. StoneSet is however, an affordable solution and can be laid quite quickly – with 150m2 easily installed per day.
In the busy day-to-day of many schools, there’s often not a lot of priority put on the hardscape surrounding it. After all, hardscapes are nothing more than something to walk on– or are they? So often we see school playgrounds filled with sand, gravel, and rubber mulch. Which are not the safest, most heat-resistant, and most environmentally-friendly options, especially for a hardscape that will mostly be used by children. Here is why schools should be adopting porous pavement instead of “traditional” school hardscape.
Sure, your old hardscape may be cracked, split, or fractured, but it could still be strong enough to provide the foundation for a beautiful new piece of pavement. Why rip up a solid foundation just because it’s starting to wear down?
When people hear the phrase green construction, they always tend to imagine tearing out whatever structure already exists to put in something that’s more eco-friendly. However, something that a lot of people don’t consider is that anything you tear down creates waste. It has to be broken up, hauled away, and the remnants disposed of.
From hospitals to playgrounds, campuses to shopping centres and beyond, paved areas are at constant risk of becoming a liability.
Traditional design has been stuck in a rut, relying on the same solid concrete slabs that collect water on their surface whenever it rains.
Accumulated moisture turns outdoor areas into health hazards for our loved ones, and liabilities for businesses. There is a newer, safer solution.
StoneSet’s permeable paving process is the answer. By using locally sourced and recycled materials, we can create an aesthetically pleasing, environmentally friendly, and most importantly human-friendly alternative to the concrete and asphalt of yesteryear.
Two key differences set us above and beyond in slip resistance. The porous nature of our material allows moisture to drain into the ground beneath, reducing pooling and the creation of slick patches. Second, by casting a layer of sand on the surface, we can provide an instant anti-slip finish.
Our wide range of materials in various sizes can be laid in beautiful combinations of shapes to create awe-inspiring outdoor displays while at the same time keeping those on it safer than traditional building materials.
The concrete benefits of StoneSet’s porous paving technology are clear. Peace of mind is much harder to measure, but no less important.
StoneSet is perfect for commercial and private applications. Whether it be for customers and clients, or friends and family, from young to old. You can rest assured that StoneSet’s solution is quicker to install, more environmentally friendly, longer lasting, more visually appealing, and safer. We can’t wait to work with you!
