Hi emilyruda. No stain, just a natural oil (sikkens). The reddish colour is the natural colour of the australian hardwood - 'yellowbox'. With no treatment at all the wood will weather to grey.

It's 'neutral'. So just the grey of the grout mixture - no pigments added.

Add interest with subtle textural contrasts In this Melbourne garden, the large, shiny leaves of the tall michelia hedge contrast with the smaller leaves of the lower box hedging. The shiny leaves also help to reflect light into the shady courtyard, enlivening the space.
