Outdoor living areas like outdoor rooms, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, swimming pools, and hot tubs continue to grow in popularity. An essential part of these spaces is what’s underfoot. “Just as you wouldn’t buy a car without the tires, your clients aren’t getting a proper outdoor area without some beautiful hardscaping to pull it all together,” affirms an article from Total Landscape Care. These amenities can net a 75% return on investment when a house sells.
What a transformation!

- Overlaid existing – no need to pay for tip fees for brickwork
- StoneSet applied at minimal 16mm depth
- 10 Year guarantee
- 24 hour turn around
