Mark Huxtable from Glasson Huxtable Landscape Architects, who designed and helped transform the tired old playground - which includes an etched rope pattern in the concrete and paved edging supplied by Firth - talks about the next stage of the project, He Puna Taimoana.
“We worked well with Firth on the earlier playground project and we were keen to keep the continuity of colours and products going through to the new pool complex,” says Mark. “Firth does have a very good product price point on their PaveWare® paving which was a very important consideration on this job. They have a good range of products and sizes with different finishes which offer texture and variety in a large area of paving. And … they have a very good colour selection which helped when choosing a colour palette to match the seaside location. We didn’t want it to all be grey. The main paver used was Firth Piazza® 400mm(L) x 200mm(W) x 80mm(D) in ‘Summer Sandstone’ – a warm colour that works really well with the seaside location.”
