Bluestone also features a slip resistant surface, can be customised for a range of styles, and is quite economical.
Granite is known as an igneous stone with an unusual look and the quality of great hardness. The texture is an idiosyncratic web of feldspar, mica and quartz. Granite pavers and tiles are ideal for outdoor use due to the material’s resistance to fading and abrasion, extreme strength and consistent look between pavers.

Limestone comes in a wide range of contemporary colours to suit almost any paving need. In addition, you can choose to have flowing paving from indoors to outdoors to create continuity between entertainment spaces in your home or business.
