As you can see, the permeable pavement paths themselves can be works of art, displaying any pattern you think patients would find soothing.

Emulate Monet for a peaceful ambience, or emulate Picasso for a lively first impression. These architectural touches will work on your patients to make them less nervous about treatment

The distinct yin and yang motif was completed using a mix of Tan, Keelan Green (dark yang) and Cream stone (light yin). Residents at the aged care facility can retreat to the garden and do their morning Tai Chi exercises in the peace of the surrounding garden.


Ideal permeable pavement

Whist StoneSet have completed a number of decorative stone installations, Primarily none more prominent than CASS “Tai Chi Garden” which was a bespoke installation, designed by the architect and executed by StoneSet.

A good way to lessen the impression of a cold, clinical place is to surround it with nice landscaping, and StoneSet is aesthetically pleasing as a path surface.

It comes in a variety of colours and textures, which means that you can use it to enhance the looks of flowerbeds and lawns.

Safe for elderly residents

StoneSet’s.Slip resistant – R11 rating (suitable for public area ramps) texture and puddle-discouraging porousness make it safer for people who may be on crutches or recovering their sense of balance. It allows water to drain off paths quickly, so people can go on the paths immediately after it rains or a sprinkler malfunctions

All this encourages exercise, which gives people in recovery less time to brood. It encourages physical therapy and eases people into the more active world outside of the recovery ward.
