Venetian Grey (also called Dove Grey Shotblasted) is a sandstone with a unique, soft gray finish that can add charm to your outdoor projects. But that beauty comes with a price as this natural stone has higher iron content than other natural stones and may have problems with rust. Here at STONEarch, we always offered suitable alternatives to our clients to avoid challenges with rust in Venetian Gray.
Fortunately, you can find the 3 best alternatives for Venetian Grey in our collection of premium, high-quality landscaping stones. These are:
STONEarch Indus Gray
Limestone is a very popular construction material. It can be used for both interior and exterior applications. STONEarch Indus Gray is one of the very best limestones that can replace Venetian Gray. Moreover, it is available in a complete range of products including flagstone pavers, copings, steps, and pool copings.
This premium natural stone boasts neutral yet modern hues of gray and white. And because of its very clean and contemporary appearance, it is referred to in the industry as the most modern landscape stone to date. You’ll also fall in love with the naturally occurring bright white and darker colored striations and veins on this stone that add even more elegance and style to it. Along with these, it features a sandblasted texture, making its surface anti-slip. Hence, it is perfect for the North American weather.
Given the light colour of this stone, we advise clients to seal our STONEarch Indus Gray limestone to maintain its brilliant white / light gray colour for many years to come.
STONEarch Gray Granite
When it comes to durability and strength, the first stone that comes to mind for most people is STONEarch granite. This beautiful, elegant, and unique natural stone has long been used as a building material and for constructing just about everything, from kitchen countertops to stone steps. In fact, if you visit the most historic towns in Europe, you will find granite cobblestone streets that are over 100 years old. If you are looking for a cobblestone for your driveway, take a look at all the options that we have here at STONEarch.
STONEarch Gray Granite has an enduring neutral gray tone that can complement your residential or commercial landscape project. This classic yet modern stone has a flamed finish that allows for a slip-resistant surface. Therefore, it is an excellent flagstone for creating an impressive pool surround, patio, or front walkway.
One of the best things about our Gray granite (sometimes referred to as Fine Grey) is that it is a bulletproof replacement for Venetian Gray. STONEarch Gray Granite does not need to be sealed and a light pressure wash can easily clean the surface. It is known for its very consistent colour and texture, making it suitable for both residential and commercial projects alike.
Outdoor porcelain pavers are not only versatile but also cost-effective. Porcea Moongrey from our Porcea Elite Collection, in particular, is a beautiful, clean light gray stone and an outstanding alternative to Venetian Gray.
Because of the very modern look of this zero-maintenance product, Porcea Moongrey is often referred to as one of the most modern outdoor stones, and once installed, many clients find that the appearance is nearly identical to a sandblasted natural limestone paver although it is an outdoor porcelain paver. What’s more, it is specially designed for use as paving for patio areas and pool decks, as well as rooftop terraces and commercial applications.
Many of our clients will work with Porcea Moongrey on the main area of their pool deck and use natural stones such as STONEarch Onyx Black granite or STONEarch Indus Gray limestone for the copings and steps in their projects.
