Stone Patio & Walkway Design Elements
The various types of stone you use can provide a specific color pallet and feeling for a patio. Whether it be to create intricate designs that mimic cultural and architectural themes or to compliment the materials on your house on in your landscape there are many options to choose from when designing a hardscape.
Types of Patio Materials
- Natural Stone – Enhances the “natural” beauty of an outdoor patio as it blends well with the surroundings. There are many types of stone you can choose from such as bluestone, flagstone, or limestone. The natural stone choices will provide you with a variety of aesthetic options, but will resist natural wear and tear and will not need the upkeep of manmade patio materials.
- Stone Pavers – Manufactured paving stones are a quality product that are going to be consistent in thickness allowing for easier installation. Pavers can come in a wide variety of colors and patterns so your patio can really stand out. While paving stones are not “natural” they are made well and have become a very common material to be used in patio design.
- Concrete – The installation of a concrete patio is going to be much easier but will definitely not have the aesthetic of a natural stone or stone paver patio. The ability to use dyed concrete and stamped patterns can mimic the look of natural or pavers. This may be a more affordable choice but it will also need more frequent upkeep.
