Why Use Natural Stone In Landscaping?
When it comes to building outdoor features, natural stone is a very widely used material and there are a number of reasons for this:
- These are very versatile materials that can be used in various applications such as driveways, pathways, walkways, retaining walls, outdoor kitchen walls, garden steps, planter installations, patios and decks etc.
- The different types of stones you can choose from include marble, slate, sandstone, bluestone and granite etc. Since there is such a large variety to choose from, you have the flexibility to create the kind of landscape design you want.
- Natural stone is a low maintenance material; and once it is installed in the landscape, you would only have to pressure-clean it once in a while. Some people also like to seal the surface of the natural stone paving and this is a very good idea. The sealant makes the surface resistant to dust and oil stains too.
- Some people wonder whether it’s a good idea to get stone pavers and stone veneer installed on their property as these materials are more expensive than brick and concrete. However, when you take the maintenance and longevity factors into account, you will find that natural stone provides you high value in the long term. In most instances, these installations are almost permanent.
Which Natural Stones Are Best?
Flagstone and bluestone, as well as travertine, are excellent patio and driveway stones. If you are looking for a strong and long-lasting material for kitchen countertops, granite is an excellent option. Marble becomes an ideal material for pool showers and fireplaces. You should look for a company that would be able to provide different types of natural stones for your landscaping project.
When you are getting any landscaping work done, the quality of the landscape and its longevity depend on the workmanship as well as the building materials used in the project. That’s why it’s important to source these materials from a company like Urban Green Building& Landscaping Supplies that has been consistent with the quality of its products.
