Create an oasis

Holcim Australia is helping homeowners to embrace al fresco living with Geostone™

Al fresco living not only epitomizes the Australian dream it is also considered essential for a healthier lifestyle. Whether for mental, physical or even spiritual health, homeowners increasingly want more from their backyard space or, as some refer to it, their personal oasis. A unique place that helps you reconnect with nature; restoring, refreshing and returning us to who we’d rather be. Our self.

It’s a space that needs some greenery, as well as other colors and water ideally. But of great importance is what is on the ground under your feet; what connects the space, both from the inside to the outdoors as well as giving a lift to outdoor entertaining areas including patios, verandas and pool surrounds.

Geostone™ does this with flair and style.

Sourced from the great outdoors and designed for great outsides, the uniqueness of Australian stone is fused with reinforced concrete to create Holcim Australia’s improved product range under new brand name Geostone™. The stone used in Geostone is extracted from the earth and carefully selected for its colour, size and shape to maintain its natural variation. Then put through a process that ensures a tough, durable product that delivers versatile functionality and stunning good looks. Geostone can be used in many ways from; exposed for durable driveways, pathways and landscaping, polished for a highly glossy, smooth surface in indoor living areas or, it can be honed for comfort and durability in outdoor entertaining areas from patio to poolside.

Choosing plain old concrete or basic paving for exterior surfaces is a thing of the past. Research reveals that new home builders and renovators want colour, texture, design, variation and flow to help them connect with nature and reawaken their senses.
