Ku Ring Gai council is home to some of Sydneys wealthiest and coolest suburbs.
StoneSet frequently install porous driveways in the area because the council is one of the most forward thinking and green-friendly in Australia. New and existing developments must be sensitive to the trees on the property and frequently these are very old established trees.
However its not just tree health the council are looking to protect. Because the main arterial highway out of Sydney, Pacific Highway, runs through these suburbs, housing either side of this are generally on slopes, and so managing stormwater runoff is a major concern for the council.
Due to a beautiful eucalyptus tree in the front yard, this driveway had to be permeable so the tree roots could easily find water, and thrive. The owner of the home chose a beautiful blend of Evergreen & Ash to create another grey to contrast against the house.
