– Long lasting
– Adds that WOW factor to your property.
– May be painted or rendered to suit any decor.

A PVC pipe is inserted between the tanks during installation for a watertight seal. It is possible to have the Landscape Tanks located anywhere around the property using a charged (or wet) system.

StoneSet have launched a new product for porous tree surrounds which incorporates over 50% recycled materials in the form of shredded tyres and recycled glass.

A recycled rubber tree surround offers additional benefits in two areas. The first is the re-use of waste materials. Each tree pit will contain a blend of at least 50% recycled materials. The tree pit is a blend of crushed Australian rock, (very hard wearing and attractive in a dark grey), old tyres reclaimed and shredded to a granule and finally recycled glass produced by crushing and tumbling (to remove sharp edges) old bottles. The second benefit is the increased flexibility the rubber brings to the product to allow for movement without cracking.

The final product is a surface that will offer fantastic flexibility to move with the tree, a high void content to maintain water and air penetration to the root ball and a hard wearing finish to with stand the daily traffic in the urban environment.

StoneSet products are widely used across Australia and is the preferred choice of many councils and architects for tree surrounds, footpaths and porous paving.


StoneSet strives to create a green product that has minimal impact on the environment. Where appropriate, StoneSet uses recycled materials and sources aggregate locally rather than from overseas. The resin is derived from a renewable plant source and once cured is an inert and non-toxic material that does not affect the pH levels of the surrounding eco-system. StoneSet’s high levels of porosity also makes it the ideal choice for water harvesting projects and water sensitive urban design, reducing stormwater run off thus reducing the number of pollutants making their way into our waterways.
