Product Focus – Fencestone

Fencestone™ is a self-locating wall system that doesn’t require block laying skills making it a great option for DIY projects. Designed by the team at Baines Masonry, the Fencestone™ wall system consist of special split-faced panel blocks which interlock without mortar ensuring an easy, strong and attractive boundary around your property.

The Fencestone Wall System has been developed to assist everyday people to build their own front fence or garden fence without the skills of a bricklayer - each block locks to its neighbour on each end as well as top and bottom. They can be used for small fences (only a couple of blocks high), to noise barriers 2.2m high, or even higher if designed by your engineer.

Each panel of fence blocks are supported at each end by the purpose made piers, making it super easy to install between wall panels, ends of walls at gate openings and more. With internal and external right angles and available in two colours, they are designed to suit any space, providing an attractive and efficient alternative to traditional brick fences.

Ensure your outdoor space works

With increased populations in suburbia leading to smaller homes with shrinking living spaces inside the home, outdoor spaces have become more valuable to residents. Not only are people entertaining outside more, but their outside areas have become an extension of their inside spaces, often with dining and entertainment areas now being transferable between indoor and outdoor.

Create outdoor rooms

Use your limited space wisely by assigning specific uses for each area. This will ensure all spaces are utilised and everything has its place which is important for storage and small back yards. To help create room’s outdoor flooring, such as pavers, can be used to show a designated area. Using garden beds and pot plants to surround an area can also provide a clear division between areas, while also adding to the aesthetics of the design.

Incorporate your Green Thumb

Having a garden can seem impractical in small areas, however with the introduction of vertical gardens and the clever use of pot plants, a garden can be introduced easily. Vertical gardens provide a great opportunity to grow your own herbs and vegetables while also not taking up precious space. Incorporating pot plants can be beneficial if you don’t have the space top plant also as they can be moved around as the seasons require and can also be introduced inside.

Small landscaping upgrades

If your home didn’t come with much landscaping, or even worse, it’s basically a small patch of dirt and you can’t afford extensive landscaping, consider a fire pit, water feature or pizza oven to create a focal point and social area. A stone fire pit instantly makes a place to hang out during the winters and it’s a great addition to a small yard. A fire pit can be made easily from masonry blocks or be already assembled, either way, it can be an effective means of creating impact.

Multipurpose is key

Create spaces that have multiple uses, such as outside dining area that can be changed into a cinema. Creating multiple uses for space creates greater opportunities to use an area and get the most out of your spaces. Also using multipurpose furniture is another means to maximise your outdoor spaces. For example, an ottoman can be used as a seat or a coffee table.
