Protecting Your Valuable Assets

These days, weather patterns are unpredictable. The extreme and untimely weather events have brought immeasurable damage to the Australian landscape and has had a detrimental effect on our way of living. Never have we witnessed so much destruction and erosion.

A growing trend in beachside and riverside communities has led to the undertaking of preventative and stabilisation works. These days, Councils are on the front foot, securing the necessary building and landscaping materials required to stabilise and restore river and creek beds, preserve erosion-prone areas, such as beach fronts, and ultimately protect their natural assets for their residents.

Sandstone Spalls are a proven solution to minimise loss and control the erosion process. Not only are spalls ideal for creek bed and riverbank lining, they’re also a natural stone that looks great too – making them a popular aesthetic choice for architects, civil engineers and landscapers. Benedict has substantial quantities of quality spalls readily available in two sizes: 75-200mm & 150-300mm.

South of Sydney, Sutherland Shire Council are well underway in the restoration and future proofing of the local coastline. Following the advice of NSW Department of Planning & Environment’s Biodiversity, Conservation and Science team, 397 truckloads of quality sandstone boulders from Benedict’s Sandy Point quarry (a total of 6768 tonnes to date) have been delivered to the site. The erosion control project is being constructed by specialist contractor The Rix Group.

Whether you’re restoring damaged areas, stabilising an existing erosion problem, or preventing a foreseeable erosion event – act now. Choose from our range of sandstone: one-man, two-man and bobcat sizes, and a selection spalls in various sizes. Remember, if it’s a special rock or a specific size you’re looking for – we can help.
