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.

Wellington Park Porous Pathways

Project QuickStats

Location Wellington Square Perth, Western Australia
Stone Colour  Pitch Black 
Total Area 126 square meters
Date Installed 17-03-2021

This week our team travelled to Perth to work with our approved installers TIRO Earthworks, to install 126 square meters worth of porous paving on behalf of Civil Engineers Avanteers.

The project was in Wellington Square in Perth, on the eastern side of the CBD. The City of Perth has undertaken major works in renovating the park, beginning early 2020.

StoneSet porous paving was one of the works scheduled this month, to be completed towards the end of the project. Purportedly costing some a $18.7 million to upgrade, overall the works included “construction of a new playground, basketball courts, new paths and facilities and a place of reflection to commemorate the Stolen Generation.”

Porous Paving for Public Pathways

Not dissimilar to many other public paths, the requirements were familiar – The solution had to be porous and non slip, to both support the groundwater retention and reduce flash flooding and runoff.

The more obvious advantage was of course the beautiful natural stone look for the CBD park on the pathways and of course be non slip for the parks patrons.

StoneSet has recently been installed on a number of large park pathways across Australia, including Rockhampton City Council and Berrima community pathways.

The product is highly popular given the imperative upon governments to increase urban tree canopy cover and do more to reduce the Urban Heat Island Effect.
