Natural rock adds attractive organic colours and textures into a landscape. If you're looking for a way to improve your garden, consider the following reasons to spread stone pavers around the space.
Incorporates Contrast And Visual Interest
While lush foliage, colourful flowerbeds and green lawns are attractive, when they are grown without break across an entire garden, they can look dull. Stone pavers, in the form of pathways, retaining walls, and other features, add contrast into the landscape. The hardness of rock highlights the soft and feathery nature of foliage, and it brings out the warmth of tree logs.
Creates Convenient Outdoor Spaces
A stone-paved patio will increase the functionality of your garden, providing a place for you to sit and read or relax on a garden lounge. Thus you'll get more use of your backyard. Lawn patio areas can become soggy in winter or dusty in summer, making the space less attractive and welcoming. Using pavers, you'll get to spread beautiful rock shades such as dusky blue, tan and ivory across the yard. Ask your landscape supplies contractors about their paver options.
Provides Access To Sheds And Other Areas
You might have a shed or garage containing lawnmowers, bicycles or other paraphernalia without a solid mode of access. Constructing a natural stone paver pathway will create a stable and reliable surface on which to wheel bikes and the like. You won't have to struggle and strain to keep a wheelbarrow full of leaves and debris upright on an uneven dirt surface, for instance.
Solid secure stone paver surfaces will increase the safety of your property. You can install stone with a natural cleft finish and have an anti-slip sealer applied for even more security. Simply falling over around the home can cause sprains and broken bones, so forethought and preventative measures are well worth the effort.
Improves Outdoor Entertainment Areas
If you like to entertain and throw outdoor parties, you need a place where everyone can gather and socialise. As well as forming beautiful and secure patio flooring, you can use natural stone blocks to create a low wall encircling the terrace. Such a feature will not only define and organise the outdoors, but it will produce natural seating that is always available and compliments the beauty of the garden. You can also build a fire pit to warm everyone up on cool evenings or construct an outdoor barbecue.
