In this project our customer has used Raj Tumbled Sandstone Paving for the hard landscaped areas surrounding the house, plus bespoke swimming pool copings around the pool
Initially this customer was enquiring about our pool copings. The question posed was: would our Raj sandstone pool copings match the Raj paving that had been selected elsewhere?
We strongly advised against this, as our True Raj sandstone paving is quite different to many versions that are offered for sale under the same name. Our Raj Sandstone Paving is carefully selected from a very specific seam in the quarry to ensure that the product we supply remains true to what Raj is meant to be ie a dark brown and green sandstone that resembles old York Stone. Unfortunately, a lot of the cheaper ‘Raj blends’ that are offered for sale in the UK, are not so carefully selected, and the result can be a mix of colours from pink and grey through to brown and green
Please read our blog about true Raj to understand what is different about our Raj paving.
Once the customer had done some further research herself, we are glad to say that she re-ordered her paving from us along with these bespoke pool copings. By doing this she was able to ensure that there was a quality and colour match across the 2 product types.
The paving used here is Raj Tumbled Sandstone Paving. It features softened edges and surfaces created by the tumbling process. The resulting slabs have a pleasing timeworn, aged look to them from the get go.
The pool copings are bespoke made for this project. The design of the pool required the pool copings on each side to be fabricated to specific bespoke widths, plus the exposed nature of the pool edge facing into the room, required a bull nosed edge to be added to both long edges for aesthetics and safety.
