Of late, natural stone has been the material of choice in residential landscaping. Materials that create an organic aesthetic are being specified frequently, as well as those materials that reflect the look and feel of the cultures and landscapes of the Pacific.

“People are striving to create an authentic island feel with natural volcanic and coral stones making an impact on the market, as well as using other materials such as glass pool tiles to achieve the most natural oceanic feeling,” Pono Stone’s Debbie Carelli says.

“Lava and basalt stones are popular choices at the moment, as are coral stones and limestone,” Debbie says. “Most of the Pacific Islands were formed volcanically and we’re seeing New Zealanders really embracing the natural landscapes of the Pacific Islands into their hardscaping material choice.

“It’s something that started in large hotels and resorts and is now filtering through into residential landscaping.”

“We’re seeing these large format cuts trending and the technology available to enable the capability to cut large, custom sizes and different thicknesses to match any area’s requirements. Even in difficult landscapes, using large cuts is achievable.”

Complementing these natural materials, glass is being favoured for poolscapes. “Using glass tiles in a pool or water feature adds a striking dynamic and wow factor to the finished landscaping,” Debbie says.

“This really ties in with the desire to create the authentic island-inspired landscape. Glass tiles create a wow factor and are the material that allows for the most ocean-like experience in a pool by way of creating a diverse and unique colour range emulating the ocean’s natural hues.”

Pono Stone specialises in architectural hardscaping materials, working on projects from large resorts and hotels through to residential projects.
