March is finally here and with it comes the opportunity to get out of the house and start working on our gardens and landscaping again. If you’re considering any hardscaping projects for your yard this year, you should consider decorative stone. It can be used almost anywhere that you would use concrete or concrete stones. Decorative stone is a great addition to almost any yard and landscaping situation because of its many benefits, including its beauty, durability, and environmentally friendly nature. Here are some great uses for natural stone that you should consider for your Bel Air landscape.
Driveways and Walkways
Decorative stone is a great choice for driveways and walkways, in the backyard and the front. It is highly durable and strong enough to handle foot and vehicle traffic. It also doesn’t require a lot of maintenance and upkeep, which makes it a cost-effective choice over a concrete stone in the long run, even though the upfront costs are often higher. Natural stone provides a safe non-slippery surface for walking and driving, and the wide variety of sizes, shapes, and colors means that you can also use it to create a curb around your driveway or edging along your path.
In addition to your paths, you can use the stone to create the various hardscaping elements of your garden. You can use it to construct beautiful and sturdy retaining walls to grade your property. You could also use natural stone for the edging around your garden areas or to create raised beds for your plants and vegetables.
Outdoor Living Areas
Decorative stone can also make beautiful patios, for all of the same reasons that it is suitable for walkways. In addition to your beautiful new stone patio, you could also use natural stone for your outdoor fireplace or fire pit, or to construct a fountain or pond as a water feature. Finally, natural stone (often as a natural stone veneer) is a fantastic choice for doing the surrounds in your outdoor kitchen.
