Decorative Stone Paving
When it comes to paving, Councils and Homeowners are looking for form and function.
Foremost, public spaces need to be safe, then functional, cost effective, then beautiful.
For example, Tree Surrounds in highly trafficked areas need to pose no safety/trip hazard, they must allow water to reach tree roots and they must affordable to install in larger numbers. Increasingly, these public areas should be decorative.
Private driveways need to withstand repeated wear, UV, be safe in the wet but also compliment the appearance of a new home.
StoneSet is all of these things. As simple as polyurethane mixed with 6mm washed stone, StoneSet achieves all of the following;
EDGING AND STENCILS
StoneSet is also available in many colours and mixtures, which can be used for custom groundcover and pavement designs in hardscaping features for your clients.
Patterns are achieved using stenils and aluminium edgeing. One 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.
Below is an example of a logo stencil that had been machined from MDF and used to guide the stone into position.
