Type of works: supply of SSQ Ultra Riverstone® architectural stone for paving tiles.
The use of SSQ Riverstone paving tiles in this garden makeover transformed what was once a rather tired and gloomy garden in west London, taking it from English suburbia to French riviera.
Riverstone architectural stone is a phyllite, a natural rock closely related to slate. Phyllite shares slates essential characteristics but surpasses its qualities being generally stronger and more resilient. Its an excellent natural building material and is ideal for internal and external flooring and hard landscaping in both residential and commercial environments.
The project used about 950, 300 x 300mm, Riverstone paving tiles, with each block of four Grey/Green tiles being separated by a 100mm strip of Golden quartzite paving. Paving tiles with a Natural finish were used, the riven surface of the phyllite providing an excellent non-slip surface.
