Landscaping with Stone or Pavestone Pavers

Landscaping with Stone or Pavestone PaversIn a previous blog, Make Sure Your Lawn is Ready for Spring, we mentioned redesigning expansive areas of grass through the use of pavers, stone pathways, and brick or stone patios. By incorporating stone or Pavestone pavers, your yard can be transformed from boring to breathtaking in just a few days depending on the project.

Patios, walkways, and borders can be created with the use of natural stone, pavers, or bricks, or a combination of all three. Natural stone, such as marble or granite, is usually more costly because it's not manufactured. It is from a quarry and cut to a specific size and shape. Bricks and concrete pavers are manufactured in a plant by mixing materials and firing them at extremely high temperatures. Therefore, they are more readily available and less costly than natural stone.

No matter what type of material is used, just about any design can be created to achieve a look for a patio or walkway that is as beautiful as it is functional.

Some popular designs include:

  • Herringbone (Or zigzag)
  • Running Bond (Pavers are set at an angle to create a curved look)
  • Basket Weave
  • Circular
  • Fan
  • Random

Or a combination of all of these.

Fireplaces or Fire PitsOne important factor to keep in mind with stone or pavers is durability. For example, some material used for a walkway might not necessarily be strong enough for a driveway or other area where there is heavy use.

For trees, flower beds, gardens, walkways, and any other area, borders, or edging, can be used to reduce erosion and add a nice touch to an otherwise dull landscape. 

In addition to patios, walkways, and borders, All Seasons Landcare also specializes in using brick, natural stone, and Pavestone pavers for building:

  • Retaining Walls
  • Steps
  • Fountains
  • Fireplaces or Fire Pits
  • Outdoor Kitchens

The possibilities for making your yard a fabulous, functional outdoor living space are endless when you use the professionals at All Seasons Landcare.
