Granite

A popular stainproof surface for kitchens, polished granite is diamond-hard and tough enough for use in the garden. It comes in a huge range of colors, from black and greens to pinks, reds and cream; some also include speckled and streaked detailing. Affordable composite and terrazzo (granite chips bonded with cement and polished) are good alternatives if you can't afford the real thing.
