Looking back

A selection of Oltco’s 2022 highlights from Sales Support Manager, Kris.

It’s been another bumper year for the team over at Oltco, with an abundance of fantastic projects brought to life for clients looking to make their dream outside space a reality. Sales Support Manager for Oltco in Cornwall, Kris, reveals just a few of his favourites.

The first he points us to is a 170m squared driveway, made of Recycle Bound. Designed and installed to pull the look of the property together, Kris explains: “I love how the contemporary colour blend of Celtic Sea seamlessly contrasts the natural colours of the home’s surroundings. And the fact that the installation recycled the equivalent of over 500,000 plastic straws is the cherry on the cake!

“This is one of two Recycle Bound projects of this size that we have finished this year. The other,” he explains, “used our Crantock blend, and it was amazing to see it come together. With Crantock, the client was able to create their own personal beach, and the way the new patio complements its surroundings perfectly is amazing. Again, the project recycled the equivalent of 500,000 plastic straws, and is testament to the contribution our Recycle Bound solution makes in the bid to prevent waste plastic from polluting the environment – something that’s very close to our hearts here at Oltco.”

Other colours within the Recycle Bound and resin bound product ranges include Cornish Emerald and Poldark. “We recently completed a new driveway for a client who settled on the Cornish Emerald colourway, and I love how bold a statement it makes. It gives the driveway ‘California-esque’ vibes with a sleek finish that’s typical of our resin  bound solutions, and really helps to give this property the ‘wow’ factor.”

Flicking through the images of Oltco’s 2022 project portfolio, what is clear is that, in every case – whether the client has opted for resin or Recycle Bound – the finished result is spectacular. It brings a clean, modern aesthetic to tired exteriors, and really works to brighten them, even on those overcast days that are all part and parcel of a life in Cornwall. And whether it’s creating a statement entrance to your property that will wow guests the moment they pull into your drive, or enlivening and future-proofing an area in your garden, be it for a pool surround, an anti-slip floor for an outdoor kitchen, or even just a small patio, it’s reassuring to know that very little maintenance is required to keep your new surface in peak condition. No more weeding between the slabs – simply sweep the surface regularly and hose it down with clean water, and it’ll be like new, every time.

So, if your outdoor space is in desperate need of a revamp with a hardy solution that promises not to sap all of your time maintaining it, why not give Kris and the team a call? You never know, yours might just appear on Kris’ 2023 highlight reel!
