Whittlesea, VIC

This StoneSet Pathway was installed on 28/3/18.

Heres a great little project that a DIY customer completed using our resin only product Pour On.

This little landscaped backyard patio was created by the client looking to make use of a small and unused section of their backyard with a beautiful view.

The existing stone paving was significantly aged but still held its form, not cracked or flaking, but very tired and faded from decades of UV exposure.

Sourcing their own decorative aggregate from a local landscaping yard StoneSet advised the keen DIYer on which type of stone they needed to source. Being a patio area, the loading was limited to foot traffic (rather than vehicular traffic) which meant the choice and cleanliness of the stone was going to be far more forgiving than had they chose to resurface their driveway.

Most decorative stone at landscaping yards has been processed or ‘screended’ (dust shaken free of it) at the quarry. Cheaper stone has less processing work and is often full of dust, which gives a poor result when trying to mix in a binder like our polyurethane resin.

For longevity, only clean, high grade decorative stone should be used with our resin product. If a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well – especially somehting like paving which can be expected to last decades into the future and is exposed to sun, wind, rain and friction constantly over its life time.

Pour On was used to quickly and easily revitalise this area. The clear resin has enables the beautiful stones to keep their natural look – though without the normal maintenance. Aluminium edging was used to form up a solid edge, to ensure the resin bound stone could not be kicked or otherwise fray at the edges over time.
