Sandstone Home

Following are some ways that you can use sandstone in your home.

Paving your outdoor

Sandstone is an aesthetically pleasing and highly durable material therefore it is preferred by many to be used for outdoor paving. It can endure extreme temperatures and can last a lifetime.

Sandstone paving looks the same even after years of installing. However, it needs some maintenance to make it look like it used to by using high pressure water cleaners that can freshen the surface easily.

For outdoor interiors it is best to use warm coloured sandstones so that it blends in with the natural and modern colours. They go best with greenery, creating a good base for modern garden designs and colour patterns. Since they retain their colour so well sandstone outdoor pavements can be used to line balconies, build pathways and garden walkways.

Making your garden attractive

Sandstone can be used for capped and raised garden beds as raised garden beds bring dimension to the garden. Sandstone pavers are installed on the sides of raised garden beds so that they can support them and blend in with the overall design.

Sandstone steps can be added to the courtyard gardens or balconies to give texture to the space. Since sandstone is a very durable material it is ideal to use for steps. Sandstone wall fountain or water walls bring a classic look to the garden.

Another way sandstone can be added to the garden is by making a barbeque unit that merges with the rest of the garden. Last but not the least sandstone fences can be added to give a rustic look to the garden.

Sandstone used for ponds

Since the material can withstand the pressure of water it is suitable to be used for ponds and fountains. The stone gives a luxurious feel to the garden.

Best for wall cladding

Sandstone is the best option that requires less maintenance for wall cladding and paving on pathways.

    What Our Customer Says

    From the time I rang Brisbane Rock Sales to get some names for quotes to do this sandstone wall to completion, I could not have been happier with the whole process. The price came in as a reasonable amount of money after I had received quotes to get the wooden retaining wall replaced, the stones came in a lot cheaper. We couldn’t be happier with the end product and we were very impressed with the professionalism shown. Thank you for making the process less stressful and creating such a pleasing result.
