There are a variety of natural stone products with a suitable finish that can be used outdoors and around pools, including Limestone, Travertine, Granite, Sandstone, or porcelain. 

Select from our pool copings, skimmer lids, glass mosaics or Wall Cladding to complete your outdoor oasis.

Build A Private Oasis With Limestone

Limestone, with its solid neutral colours and comfortable texture, is a popular choice in the coastal areas of Australia. Using limestone adds warmth and a touch of elegance to your pool design. 

Tavira Limestone

This lightly coloured Limestone echoes the look of the sand at the beach with an elegant but relaxed atmosphere. Tavira Alfresco Limestone remains soft underfoot, adding a comfortable vibe to your outdoor area. 

This project in collaboration with Gardner Design used the Tavira Limestone for the whole pool area, including the outdoor dining, providing a luxurious and calming touch to the space.

Cathedral Limestone

The Cathedral Limestone looks stunning in the outdoor area and around the pools. It has a unique tumbled finish that is reminiscent of European cathedral floors and provides a timeless look.

The large-format tiles make the design look seamless and suited to both traditional as well as modern aesthetics.

Crema Vialle Limestone

This elegant cream-coloured Limestone provides a decadent feel to your pool design and works great in combination with a contemporary aesthetic. It can be combined with the honed tiles to create a seamless transition from inside to outside. 

In this project at Macmasters Beach, Balanced Building used the Crema Vialle for the area around the pool, the cabana as well as the poolside living room. Balanced Building won the MBA awards 2021 with the design, in the concrete pool category.

Luna Chiaro Limestone

This light grey Limestone provides trending colour notes, adds a modern look and can bring lightness to your pool area. It works well with the green colours of the surrounding landscape and the blue colours of the pool.

It can be paired with the Luna Chiaro tiles in a honed finish for a seamless design and with our Clairvaiux Wall Cladding for a light-coloured aesthetic. Project image in collaboration with RNB Property Group, Maxine Scalabrino- Fine Architects and Green Coast Landscapes

An Inviting Aesthetics with Travertine

Travertine is a classic choice for pools, popular for its natural beige colours, beautiful natural variation and organic look. Choose from our range of tumbled Travertine to find a look best suited to your design. 

First Choice Classic Premium Travertine

Our First Choice Classic Travertine is expertly-sourced and comes with minimal holes or inclusions. It is our most popular Travertine for residential projects because of the versatility of its neutral beige colours that fits a variety of designs. 

Authentic Landscapes selected this Travertine and created a subtropical vibe around the pool in this Marrickville project. In collaboration with Crystal Pools

Bring the Beach to Your Backyard With Sandstone

Our Himalayan Sandstone comes in two district finishes that both offer a warm yet distinguished look that will bring beach vibes to your pool area.

The Himalayan Sandstone in an alfresco finish comes with great colour consistency and is soft underfoot while providing a suitable antislip finish for outdoor spaces.

Create A Refined Look With Granite

While commonly associated with commercial projects and used in high-traffic areas because of its high resistance, durable composition and easy maintenance, in recent years, Granite has become a popular choice for pools, especially for bold designs. 

Charcoal Grey Granite

This dark grey Granite in a flamed finish offers a bold colourway that offers versatility and extreme durability and can provide an interesting feature to your pool design.

It has been used for the luxury Spicers Sangoma Retreat in the Blue Mountains just outside Sydney that has been recognized by the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.

Silhouette Flamed Granite

The Silhouette Granite is our most in-demand Granite, popular with renowned landscape architects and designers. It has been used for the iconic Cove House in collaboration with Secret Gardens and in the Sofia Rose House with Noho Architecture

Its eye-catching light and mid-grey colouring with less of a speckle typical of Granite can complement the white and green colours of the pool design, bringing a cooling quality while providing easy maintenance.

Skimmer Lids

Sareen Stone’s outdoor natural stone range can be integrated into the skimmer lid kit allowing you to achieve a seamless and flush pool surround, without the unsightly plastic skimmer lid. The kit includes a stainless steel tray, paving matched stone insert and a stainless steel key.

Glass Mosaics

Create a unique and exclusive design for your pool and choose from a variety of colours, shapes and sizes within our range of high-quality glass mosaic tiles that are suitable for both waterlines and fully tiled pools.

The waterline tiles are set directly under the pool coping and provide the benefits of easy cleaning as well as avoiding the formation of the bath-ring effect.

If your budget allows for the fully tiled pool, the glass mosaics can protect its longevity, reduce the pool maintenance costs and make it look more attractive and durable. In collaboration with Crystal Pools.
