Bird netting has come under fire recently – with photos like this Tasmanian salmon netting. We take a look at this medical facility in St Leonards where bird netting would have been unsightly, especially if birds were to become entangled. A far smarter solution is to stop birds being able to pick up the stone using Pour’On gravel binder – retaining the buildings modern, cleaner look

It’s thirsty work being a tree in the pub beer garden! We take a look at this water smart installation of StoneSet DIY kits to pave sections of the courtyard at the Crossroads Hotel Narrabri. There were a number of unexpected advantages using StoneSet on this project. Mainly – locals, visitors and even trees can now quench their thirst in leafy comfort
StoneSet recently completed works at a property in the NSW Central Coast to overlay an old concrete tiled driveway.
As part of the property renovation, the driveway was extended on either side of the existing concrete slab. Originally it was thought that the only way to achieve a high-quality finish to the driveway was to completely remove the existing tiles and slab and start completely from scratch.
With landfill waste costs and environmental considerations, this was not deemed the right course of action so after contacting StoneSet it was decided that an overlay of the concrete using 6mm Charcoal would give the finish best matched to the properties new look.
30-year-old tiled driveway renovated
Reflective expansion joints installed
Permeable Driveway installation
The installation took just 2 days which included the installation of aluminium control joints to reflect most of the expansion joints in the concrete, followed by the pour of the 16mm StoneSet layer.
Some great feedback from the project designer:
“We selected to use StoneSet as it is a product that purposely can renovate existing driveways. By using StoneSet we were able to retain the existing concrete driveway. We could reshape where necessary by adding new concrete pieces changing the footprint to suit the new renovations of the dwelling.
The StoneSet topping was considered the most cost-effective way of renovating the driveway, saving the client $15,000-$20,000 when compared with the cost of removing the existing concrete drive and replacing it with a new one. The product’s great warranty also influenced our decision.
The finish of the StoneSet product is superior, provides a high quality finish which compliments the renovations of the dwelling. The feedback from anyone who views the driveway, has been surprised that it is actually a renovation to an old driveway, as it looks brand new.” – Louise Williams LAW Building Design
