Creating a Green Environment for Schools with StoneSet

Posted by Stoneset on with

Nothing is as uplifting and motivating for students and staff alike, as a safe, appealing, and nature-friendly environment at school. Whether students are in primary-school, high-school, or beyond, students want to feel confident while playing or walking around their learning institutions. Surrounding students with an environmentally friendly setting can even enhance their interest and understanding of environmental issues.


For most school administrators, however, creating those surroundings seems like an impossible undertaking. Not just the construction costs and the time needed to complete the project, but the maintenance of keeping the environment clean and tidy are major concerns.

Luckily there is a solution: you can provide your students and staff with an attractive, easy to clean, and environmentally friendly alternative with StoneSet’s Porous Paving. This type of pavement can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your school compound and increase the slipware rating of your pathways and playgrounds. Here’s how:

Make use of excess water

Porous paving is an excellent choice for school grounds because it allows water to drain quickly; thus you don't have to worry about puddles when it rains. More importantly, however, if your learning institution has plants and trees around the compounds, StoneSet experts can help you tap excess water from the playground to sustain the surrounding foliage.


StoneSet has a design life of up to 25 years making it a cost-effective solution for high traffic areas such as school pathways, sidewalks, bike lanes, and playgrounds.

Easy to keep clean

You can quickly clean StoneSet by sweeping off dirt or foliage from its surface. StoneSet can also be cleaned using a pressure washer, without affecting its durability.


StoneSet can help with brand promotion

Your school's crest or logos can easily be integrated into the porous paving which enhances brand promotion. Our crushed stones also come in a wide range of colours which you can use to improve your school's image and identity.

Laying the porous paving is not a time-consuming project

For many school administrators, installing new pavement may seem like a complicated, extensive, and time-consuming project. At StoneSet we understand that avoiding significant interference with the learning process is critical. StoneSet is a quick lay system –up to 150m2 can be laid per day.
