A silver and two gold awards from the event were added to the firm’s growing collection of accolades at the MIFGS and the company has earned international recognition for its team of design specialists. Anston Paving Stones brought home a gold award from the Chelsea Flower Show in 2010, and gold awards from the MIFGS in 2011 and 2012.

The company provides premium paver choices in natural stone and paving services for commercial, residential and community projects. The company’s design experts can help with stones for steps and risers, existing concrete and fiberglass pools, and landscaping and gardens.
A range of spheres, cubes and benches are offered in an extensive array of sizes and colours. Textured pavers for the visually impaired are also available. Stones can be customized to accommodate the client’s individual needs and requirements.
Anston Paving Stones has the distinction of offering Australia’s first carbon neutral paving product. Pavers are created by experienced craftsmen who measure, mix and pour the stones. The result is unique pavers that contain subtle color variations, patterns and pigmentations. No two stones are identical, ensuring that each installation has its own look and style.
Clients can choose from an ECO and traditional range of pavers for new projects and to cover existing concrete slabs. They’re also suitable for use as waterline tiles. The company’s line of granite pavers provide sparkle and shine for added dimension and interest in any landscape project.
The company’s Ironstone pavers provide a durable product appropriate for commercial, community and streetscape applications. Ironstone pavers utilize the company’s own mixture of natural ingredients to produce stones that are decorative and highly functional. The firm’s entire line of paving products can be used in streetscape projects.
The visually impaired have special needs and Anston Paving Stones accommodates those requirements with streetscape pavers known as tactiles. The tactile ground surface indicators facilitate the mobility of the visually impaired at crosswalks and similar locations. The company’s entire line of pavers have the highest slip resistance rating available and the ability to stay up to 20 degrees cooler than many natural stone products.
