Are you looking for something a little different with which to pave your walkway, patio, or make a flower garden? Have you considered landscaping with stone? Stone if installed correctly is a beautiful addition to any landscape with many benefits. Landscaping with stone is a great choice because it is low maintenance and looks natural. The colors and textures of stone are a great way to provide an elegant backdrop to trees, lawns and flower gardens. In some cases, we can make it look as if the beauty was always there; you just built your house next to it. Stone also has longevity that other materials like wood (which needs finishing to prevent water damage), or concrete (which is prone to cracking), simply do not have. Stone usually holds up extremely well against the elements. Stone can be safer too. It typically has a higher amount of friction compared to smooth concrete or wood, making slips and falls in wet weather less likely. Stone is also a good choice in climates that are hot because it absorbs heat into its body instead of retaining it on its surface. This means that instead of getting painfully hot during the day and cold at night, it stays warm throughout.
