Natural custom stone work is a firm favorite when homeowners build a new patio or renovate an existing area. Natural stone is extremely durable and will not fade or degrade in any way over time. The stone finish offers a smooth, uniform appearance without creating ridges or dips. The stones themselves create a unique, one-of-a-kind pattern. Stone masonry techniques can be used to help fit pieces snugly together, creating a beautiful mosaic of shapes, sizes, colors, and textures.
Paving Stones for Patios
Unlike bricks that establish consistent patterns and designs, the use of natural stone pavers results in an asymmetrical look. Each paver has a different shape and size. The pieces fit together like a puzzle, providing a wide array of colors and angles that give the deck area a very personalized feel. It has character.
Natural stone also offers many benefits that conventional concrete pavers don’t. They include:
- Stain resistance
- Resistance to chips or cracks
- Easy to clean
- Many different colors, shapes, and sizes available
- A perfect fit with almost any décor
Natural stone pavers can also be used with block masonry to create an area that still has the rustic feel but defines boundaries that can accommodate various types of landscaping.
Stone Pavers and Landscaping
In addition, custom stone work and pavers add a beautiful touch to landscaped areas. Choosing stones that are the right color and texture can highlight any landscaped area, drawing out specific highlights and enhancing the bright colors. The perfect balance between stone and flora can create an eye-catching display that brings out the beauty and design of the home. Using stone adds a touch of diversity and asymmetrical design that can create softer tones and more curb appeal, especially when viewed from a distance.
Functional Design of Custom Stone Work
Furthermore, when creating an area meant to perform a certain function, using both brick and stone can add a creative touch. A perfect example of this is a stone fireplace and grill on a patio constructed from block masonry. The custom stone work breaks up the monotony of the block while adding rich color and texture to the area. All the while, the space is fully functional and is easy to maintain. For many homeowners, functionality is imperative. Finally, a wide range of applications allows them to use as much of their property as possible, especially when the area is attached or close to the home.
