The Challenge

To provide an urban garden area of the highest design quality which is accessible while being fun and functional.

The paving would have to be functional to accommodate the special needs of the customer.

The paving would have to be resilient and suitable for Irish conditions.

The paving would have to accommodate the vision specified by the Landscape Architect.

The paving would have to be available to suit the tight project timeline.

The Solution

Roadstone provided 50m2 of Milan Paving in silver granite and 30m2 of Milan Paving in midnight colour. Milan paving is a 360x120x80mm + 480x120x80mm concrete paving product which comes in a mixed bale and has a high-end granite textured finish. Milan paving gives a modern linear paved finish and suits both residential and commercial projects. The paving was laid on 50mm of Roadstone Paving Grit which was screeded over 200mm of fully compacted Clause 804 Stone. Roadstone also supplied the Kiln Dried Silver Granite Jointing Sand for the paving and all these products were sent from Roadstone’s paving plant in Gooig (Limerick).

The Result

Roadstone Technical staff should always be engaged with before the beginning of large projects. This gives the client the full benefit of the project experience of Roadstone staff.

A Roadstone Retail Outlet should be visited before commencement in order that customer can see and take-home samples of the paving or walling options.
