Sandstone walls have a lot of history!
Sandstone walls have been used throughout history. In fact, some of man’s greatest constructions were made from sandstone materials. This is because sandstone is very versatile and easy to work with, but also very durable. Not only that, but sandstone walls are very attractive. This is due to the natural warmth and elegance in the colours and patterns within the material. If you’ve noticed some of the sandstone walls Brisbane has, you’ll know what we mean.
Sandstone walls have a natural beauty
Sandstone is a natural material known as a sedimentary rock, laid down millions of years ago. The colour and patterns within the sandstone rock were formed from the surrounding elements during the sedimentary process. Different colours came from the surrounding rocks and mineral content. These are unique to every different rock formation. Different patterns were introduced into the sandstone depending on the layers that were added over the top of earlier layers. This occured as the loose materials were turned into the stone that we know and love today.
We recommend to choose sandstone walls for your Brisbane landscaping project. You get the benefit of the very best that nature has provided. That is why we love working with these natural materials over and above some of the artificial manufactured alternatives.
Sandstone walls are affordable
Sandstone walls are actually relatively affordable when you consider the whole picture. It is true that sandstone is not as cheap as concrete walls. However, what most people don’t realise is that concrete is subject to ageing, weathering and dampness. This is especially so for the cheaper approaches to construction. Timber walls, even the treated timber materials simply do not last forever. So even though they may be cheaper in the short term, there is additional cost down the track. Sandstone is certainly more affordable than marble or granite, so it can be a trade off as to how you make a choice. Sandstone walls are very strong and durable. In addition, they require little maintenance, so you won’t regret a little extra cost up front.
