Modern Alternative to Exposed Aggregate

This project installed near Newcastle in NSW is another great example of a high contrasting blend of stone to compliment modern home design.

Installed over a combination of new and old concrete bases, we take more of a look at what is involved factoring in the multiple existing expansion joints inherent when new concrete is installed alongside the old.

Mosman Sandstone Pathway Resurfacing

Older properties (particularly inner city townhouses and strata) properties tend to come with their own unique concrete patchwork.

Mottled new concrete and old, accumulated over decades detracts significantly from the properties appearance. Such was the case for this property in Sydneys prestige lower north shore.

Strips and cuts made in the concrete after this properties century old ceramic pipe plumbing was replaced with modern long-lasting PVC


Our Ash blend of stone was perfect to match the Sandstone edging and retaining walls to create a clean and tidy pathway in this established residence in Mosman.

Having purchased the property with a plan in mind to rejuvenate the very old and tired concrete surfaces, our client chose the clean white of quartz to resurface tired and old Concrete in the video above.

Ash is a fantastic choice to lighten up the landscape. Uniformity of colour in the whiteness of quartz, the appearance of loose stone is mostly visible in closer quarters.

From further back, it is less obvious the paving is indeed natural stone. The uniform white of the quartz reflects the brightness of the sun, dazzling the eye into a seeing a single clear and bright colour.

Some beautiful applications of our Ash stone are shown below.

Here’s a very tidy little driveway on Sydneys Lower North Shore, where we some of the detail on how StoneSet forms up around Strip drains and the edge of the concrete slab that forms the garage floor.

Porous driveways prevent flooding

Runoff, flooding, dampness, mould, slip hazards. These are some of the problems steep driveways pose during heavy down pours. Rather than the expense and hassle of fitting new strip drains and networks to deal with pooling water, why not let that water flow through the pavement, and into the ground?

Paving without a Trip hazard

Safety is always the foremost concern at StoneSet when we are designing a solution for your driveway.This flush application around the strip drain is designed trip hazard free. It is ideal paving for small children bike riding, teens skateboarding and people with mobility issues such as the elderly. It works well for anyone!

Not only is the surface flush, but water drains fast on StoneSet following rain, leading to fewer slips and falls to toddlers and children, as well as adults.
