The use of grey pavers for residential landscaping projects is expected to trend this spring/summer, according to Boral, a proud supplier to House Rules on Channel Seven.

“Grey pavers were a popular choice in this year’s hit renovation show, establishing them as a must have for adding visual interest to residential outdoor designs. Ideal for a range of projects, the grey tones provide an appealing contrast to the earthy hues of timber decking or screening, as well as the greens and blues of surrounding garden and pool areas,” said Mark Dell, national sales and marketing manager of Boral Roofing & Masonry East.

Boral supplied Stoneworks Travertine in Bluestone to House Rules on Channel Seven. Designed for those working with grey-based schemes, the Bluestone pavers are a bolder alternative to cream and beige tones for creating a sleek neutral look that makes a statement.

“Renovation shows are inspiring more homeowners to take action and invest in improvements to outdoor areas. Adding a paved area is a quick, simple and cost-effective option for enhancing the functionality of gardens and creating different lifestyle zones.
“In addition to using pavers for pool surrounds and barbecue areas, homeowners are seeking creative ways to add practical new design elements, including paths, driveways and paved islands for pergolas. Paving is also an ideal solution for the time-conscious homeowner, as adding a paved area will reduce the size of the lawn and mowing required,” said Dell.

Stoneworks Travertine pavers measure 500 mm x 500 mm and are available in standard and bullnose format, making them suitable for steps, paths, courtyards and pool-side applications.
