Bluestone pool pavers are tougher than most other materials

Formed naturally over thousands of years, bluestone (a.k.a basalt) pavers have proven to be a popular outdoor paving solution to this day.

It is an incredibly dense stone which means it can withstand extreme temperatures and foot traffic.

Also, bluestone pavers are salt resistant (this is particularly important if you have a salt water pool or live near the sea).

Do not confuse grey concrete pavers with bluestone. Whilst they are generally cheaper, they tend to damage easily and crack over time. For this reason, bluestone pavers are a better long term investment.

Bluestone is comes in a variety of styles

Think bluestone is just boring grey? Think again!

Typically ranging in light ashy blue to cool navy, charcoal and black, bluestone is understated with character.

Used in both traditional and contemporary pool designs, bluestone is a seamless paving style.

Additionally, you can also add interest with alternative bluestone tile arrangements such as french pattern, ashlar and crazy paving.
