Landscaping Award Winner - W Stevenson & Sons
year’s NZ Concrete Society Concrete Awards once again included a wide
range of projects covering the scope of concrete applications. Several
of the winning and highly commended projects utilised Golden Bay Cement
product. We have featured here one of those projects.
The exterior finishing of a well established and recently renovated residence has been
especially well done. The design has, as its focus, a large inground pool, tennis court
and various outbuildings. To complement the use of standstone in the interior of the
house, concrete pavers, steps and copings were specially cast, colour-matched and
honed to produce a sandstone-like finish.
They were augmented with special planter caps, plinths and water feature caps. The result is a very high quality paved finish that complements the weathered plaster of the residence with a durable landscape feature. This outdoor area is a clear statement for the versatility of concrete.
