If you’re looking to invest in pool pavers it’s worth spending the time to research your options and discover exactly what’s available to you. There’s no doubt that getting the pool paving right from the outset can pay dividends in the long term, from both an aesthetic and value perspective.
Why use Stone Pool Pavers?
Stone is a natural material that has been used in construction for centuries.
It’s durable, low-maintenance and can be used to create many different looks.
Our most popular pool pavers are made from ethically sourced natural stone that possesses the perfect qualities and attributes to make them ideal pool paving options.
Things to Consider When Choosing Pool Pavers
Non Slip Finish:
The textured surface to our stone pavers gives them a natural non-slip finish making them ideal for placement around the pool.
It’s always a good idea to consider the surrounding environment and any existing stone types already used in and around the outdoor area. This way the pool will look like an integrated element that creates balance and harmony within its setting.
If you have strong colours around your pool and outdoor area in general, a neutral grey pool paving such as our Trustone Fellstyle may be a really good option to ensure that there’s no conflict of style and colours.
One of the great advantages of using stone for your pool paving is that it can withstand heavy use, so it’s ideal for alfresco paving and pool surrounds.
Will your pool paving be in direct sunlight? Any surface will tend to get hot when exposed directly to Australia sunshine. Stone paving is no different, so lighter shades of stone are usually preferred.
All natural stone is porous and should be sealed when used as pool pavers to withstand the salt and strong pool chemicals.
The cost of the paving around your swimming pool area is always a factor in your decision-making. Installing natural stone is an extremely cost-effective material when compared to timber decking for example. You must consider the money saved in maintenance as stone paving is such a durable, maintenance-free surface.

Other Considerations for Pool Paving:
Pool Shape & Layout
If you have a rectangular swimming pool you have the choice of either using pool header stones or taking the pool pavers straight up to the edge of the pool.
Pool headers generally have what’s called a “bullnose” (rounded) edge and can really finish the look of the pool beautifully.
If you have a shaped pool, the pavers are usually taken straight to the edge of the pool and each paving stone is sculpted by hand to give a unique quality and bespoke landscape finish.
