The Challenge

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

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

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

The products would have to accommodate the vision specified by Diarmuid Gavin (Landscape Architect).

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

The Solution

Roadstone provided 130m2 of Milan Paving in silver granite and 100m2 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 send from Roadstone’s paving plant in Gooig (Limerick).

70m2 of Porcelain was laid at the rear of the house as a recreational area and as an area for outdoor entertaining.  This Italian Porcelain was a Beige Porcelain and is Roadstone’s larger porcelain unit at 1200x600x20mm.

Roadstone’s Porcelain offers unbeatable durability, strength, and ease of maintenance. Ideal for use in patios and gardens, Porcelain comes in a range of colours and sizes and Porcelain can be laid with narrow joints to allow a seamless contemporary finish to your space.

Roadstone’s Porcelain is low maintenance, anti-slip, scratch and stain resistant, and does not fade over time.

Roadstone’s bagged products were used to install the porcelain. Bagged Pavebed was used under the porcelain with Pavebond painted onto to the back of the porcelain units to ensure adhesion and Pavepoint Grout used to grout the porcelain.


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 options.
