One key feature of this location is a requirement for porous paving to ensure that rainwater is rapidly directed to the water-table and so avoiding build-up of pollutants which happens when stormwater is directed to the rivers via the drain network.
Anywhere that porous paving is required, StoneSet resin bound products provide a strong, technically sound and yet a stylish and beautiful surface.
With exceptionally high porosity ratings, a range of glorious colours and incredibly high strength and durability characteristics StoneSet can provide a lasting driveway and pathway option.
Also favoured for pool surrounds and outdoor eating areas StoneSet is growing in popularity day by day as more and more specifiers turn to a product they can trust and one that gives them so many design options.
Sustainability is not just a current “hot topic” it is a key to the future care of the planet and our resources. Water is vital to us for so many reasons and Stocklands/Murrays Beach is a demonstration of a refreshing approach where the use of up to date thinking and design will produce results.
