Versatility in Style and Function
When it comes to designing your outdoors, there are many areas where you could incorporate natural stone materials. They are so versatile that they can be used in almost any structure or feature without looking out of place. Additionally, they help enhance or maximize the function of the actual feature they are used in. Here are the most common outdoor areas where they could be applied:
- Pathways or walks
- Outdoor kitchens
- Fire features
- Water features
- Retaining walls
Types of Natural Stone
There are different natural stone types, but not all can be used for outdoor structures. The most common is granite. It is a sturdy stone material that is great for outdoor kitchen countertops, retaining walls, and other features that require masonry. It features great colors and design and it can be finished to a high shine, making it easy to clean and maintain. Marble, although commonly used for interior structures, can also be used outdoors. It, however, would need a special finish or coating to keep it protected from outdoor elements and pollution.
Another natural stone that we commonly use is limestone. It comes in a variety of looks and colors because of the various organic elements that are embedded on it. Limestone tiles are great for use on pathways or walkways as well as on patios, especially those with curves or bends because the material is very easy to manipulate. Flagstone is another recommended type of stone for landscaping. It is a heavy stone material which is usually flat, making it an ideal material for pathways, driveways, patios, and decks. It usually comes in a variety of colors. The most popular choices are off-white, blue, light pink, gray, and rustic brown.
