Stones Galore in Singapore

21. Stones Galore in Singapore

When choosing materials for outdoor renovation for gardens and roof tops, these few requirements must be met. The material must be

  1. Safe;
  2. Beautiful;
  3. Durable, especially in Singapore’s extremely hot and humid weather.

Other than artificial grass and decking, we often look to stones to enhance the design of garden landscapes here in Singapore. They come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes, and can be used on the floor, walls and even as sculptures.

On a recent visit to a stone supplier located in where I believe is one of the most ulu parts of Singapore, I saw these beautiful stones that sparked ideas galore. These gifts from Mother Nature are extra durable and beautiful.

Think patterned garden steps, Kyoto-zen style landscape right here in Singapore, and that good luck stone feature that your Fengshui master prescribed. You can find them all here.

When working with homeowners for their garden landscape design, Absolut Outdoors takes all the available materials like these stones into account. We start designing around these easily available materials first as we believe that with a bit of imagination and creativity, these stones can be matched with artificial turf, decking or water features to create a unique and beautiful garden that suits your needs.

除了常用的人造草皮和木质材料以外,其实有没有想过,石头也是非常好的选择?

那天,我就来到了新加坡某个比较偏僻的角落观赏石头。各式各样、琳琅满目的石头就那么一望无际,形成了一副无比壮观、且美丽的风景线。
