Benefits Of Choosing Stone Landscaping For Your Patio
Your patio is essentially an outdoor extension of your living space, an area of your home to be used for dining and/or recreational enjoyment. If you plan on using your stone patio as much as possible (seasonally or year-round) for entertaining purposes, barbecuing, or maybe to just unwind with a good book, a stone patio will offer the best durability and cost-effectiveness of any stone landscaping option.
Although you may be considering other types of materials because of their affordability, such as wood, brick, or poured/stamped concrete, stone patios present the best option in the long run, due to:
- A minimal need for regular maintenance
- Little to no repair or restoration costs
- No need for any outright replacement
Stone landscaping has been used for hundreds of years and its durability can be seen today in many archeological discoveries and historical sites throughout the world. For a long-lasting landscaping investment, make stone the material of choice for your patio.
Other Advantages To Selecting Stone Landscaping For Your Patio
Whether you want to install a new patio for your home or perhaps replace your current format, stone landscaping offers several other advantages and benefits in conjunction with its durability and cost-effectiveness.
When compared to other options such as poured or stamped concrete and engineered or pre-fabricated materials, stone patios can provide any or all of the following qualities or character:
- A variety of unique textures and colours
- Toughness in all weather conditions, notably in stone obtained within Canada or new materials quarried in areas of India or China with similar climates to Canada
- More stability – less likely to shift or become uneven due to frost/moisture levels
- Flexibility to add other stone landscaping features (waterfalls, ponds, fountains)
- Uniqueness/individuality per stone (over the repeated patterns of wood/concrete)
- Freshness and appeal – no signs of aging or fading over time
- The eco-friendliness of natural stone
- A natural elegance and richness to your overall landscaping
- Added value and increased attractiveness/desirability for your property
