First impressions: sandstone pillars


Make a grand entrance with Australian-made, premium-quality sandstone pillars

How you fence your front garden is not just about keeping people out or pets and children in. Chosen well, a front fence and gate will frame and enhance your home. For those who want a stylish and secure option, CastStone’s sandstone pillars are the perfect solution.

CastStone specialises in the manufacture and installation of sandstone pillars, sandstone columns and other architectural embellishments. The CastStone pillar range is extensive, offering you a choice of heights, widths and styles. Each individual style has a different base, shaft and capital design so you can tailor the look of the fence to your specific requirements. Pillars range from contemporary designs to more traditional styles, ensuring you will find something that will be a perfect match to your home.

The CastStone range of columns offers a similarly wide choice. For a classic look there are Doric, Corinthian and Ionic columns, but they have contemporary styles too. CastStone columns will enhance any outdoor area, such as verandahs and outdoor kitchens, or add flair to any outdoor structure, such as arbours, rotundas and pergolas. Depending on the design of your home, you can choose columns that are either fluted or smooth in finish.

CastStone pillars and columns give structure to your garden; they can also be used as focal points, creating a landscape that “pops”. Although CastStone’s main products are gate pillars and columns, the company also manufactures an extensive range of plinth walls, mail boxes, capping, pyramids, balustrades, pedestals, memorial stones and architectural embellishments in a wide range of styles.

Products are tailored to suit your needs. As an example, a plinth wall can be manufactured so that the stone inserts can be applied to match the front of your home, or you can choose from the varied range of finishes to ensure your mail box fittings precisely match your fence or the exterior of your home. Or, perhaps, you might want to personalise your mail box with an address plate.

CastStone has provided products and expertise for different ventures, including housing estates, retirement villages, bowling greens, parks, residential gardens, pool houses, memorial arches and arbours. CastStone has also been involved in many restoration projects, helping to ensure an authentic result.

All products are Australian made at the company’s South Australian factory and can be freighted anywhere in Australia.
