Granite – What you need to know

Wanting a stylish, modern finish to your garden? Granite is definitely a stone you should consider.

Natural Granite is perfect if you are wanting to create a modern look and feel to your space. Its straight machine cut edges and textured finish adds a perfect minimalistic finish to both contemporary and traditional settings.

Granite is a type of igneous rock which is predominantly white, pink or grey in colour dependant on its mineralogy. It is formed by the slow crystallisation of magma below the earth’s surface. The minerals are trapped within its structure allowing the crystal patterns to form.

It is very consistent in colouring with its tight grain and evenly textured flamed surface.  Granite is used broadly in construction productions due to it being extremely durable, making it ideal for paving and high traffic areas. Granite has a strong resistance to abrasion, anti-slip, resistant to weathering and can be polished to a mirror finish.

One of our customers recently took on a project using our granite range. This was for a new build which the couple had started from scratch and adding the finishing touches to their garden. They used the Flamed Silver Grey 600 x 900 slabs for the patio area and then finished the surrounding wall with the 600 x 300 pieces used as copings. The granite complements the white rendered house perfectly, creating an ultra-modern space.
