Striking a balance between modern and natural – StoneSet provided the perfect finishing touch for this home in Pymble.
Providing 84m2 of permeable driveways, StoneSet not only worked in well with the traditional look of the home, but added a modern aspect and is completely permeable!
6mm Charcoal StoneSet was chosen. At a total depth of 77mm – StoneSet and the underlying gravel cell has provided 2x beautiful, functional and environmentally friendly driveways for this home.
Another example of how we create a hard edge using the landscaping product link edge which is a popular choice for securing a hard edge over a porous road base.
When nailing this at multiple points into a cement base or 150mm of compacted road base, this provides sufficient strength and a barrier for the StoneSet. Once StoneSet resin has dried, the adhesion between the stones and the link edge along the entire length is sufficient integrity to the edge of the driveway, particularly given the vertical aluminium outside edge protection.
From their website: Link Edge let’s you design and shape your garden, pavers, driveways and other outdoor areas anyway you want. Link Edge is visually appealing, and has many other advantages over other edging techniques.
Cement : It’s a crack-up! Plus expensive to install, maintain and the looks? Hmm…
Wood : Rots, attracts pests and treated wood can contain nasty chemicals.
Plastic : Fades, cracks and do you really want that breaking down in your garden?
Steel : Rusts, develops sharp edges and is difficult to design with.
