Bluestone paving around the pool!

Geoff Burke and his team at Geoff Burke Pools, Tennis Courts and Landscapes have designed and constructed this exceptional landscape.

From the beautiful, fully tiled pool and glass pool fence, to the fabulous tennis court, the paving, retaining walls, lawns and planting and even the sprinkler system and garden lighting, Geoff and his team have done it all. A perfect example of a “one stop shop”!

Yarrabee’s Premium PR Bluestone has been used to form all of the paving, the stepping stones and the pool edging.

Geoff has used our “Drop Faced” Bluestone pool copers on the edge of the pool to create a “chunkier” look along the pool beam. These pieces of stone are hand cut into an “L” shape with the face hanging down on the inside of the pool. The result is the appearance of a 70mm thick piece of stone forming the pool coping edge.

Check out the main pathway

Single slabs of Yarrabee’s PR Bluestone 1500 x 600 laid across the full width of the path in a single unit. I imported these slabs as a special order to meet Geoff’s design brief and they were certainly worth the wait.

The informal section of pathway comprises 600x600 PR Bluestone steppers separated with black pebbles and grasses, while the pool area comprises 600x600 PR Bluestone pavers.

Lots of size options are available and, as Geoff elected to do, you can order special “non stock” pieces to give your project that extra appeal.

For the budget conscious I also carry the “Standard” Bluestone - the Chinese Bluestone sold across Melbourne, which while still a sound product, has a higher iron content and much lower flexural strength, compressive strength etc. than the PR Bluestone.
