Summer is officially here which means it is time to venture outside your home and take advantage of your landscape. Right now is the perfect time to create hardscaping features that will enhance the look and feel of your property. You should look into incorporating natural stone into your landscape for its strength and rustic appearance. Here are a few hardscaping features you can create out of natural stone.
If you are starting to incorporate natural stone hardscaping into your landscape design, a patio is a great base for any property. A natural stone patio is a great way to expand your property and a space to entertain guests. Natural stone, in general, is highly durable, so you never have to worry about the elements or heavy foot traffic damaging your patio. Natural stone is great material to surround your pool or deck.
If you want to increase the efficiency and safety of traveling around your property, then you should look into investing in natural stone walkways. Walkways are easy to navigate, and you will avoid damaging your grass by not walking through it. Natural stone walkways are the perfect feature to combine with a patio because each walkway can flow into your patio seamlessly. Natural stone doesn’t absorb heat so you can walk barefoot on your walkways if you wanted. The feature also requires little maintenance throughout the year, so all you have to do is hose it down with water.
If you have a few slopes or hills on your property, then you should look investing in a retaining wall. The natural stone structure is a perfect solution for any property that is at risk of soil degradation or small mudslides. A retaining wall holds all the soil in place, which is great in the case of rain. A retaining wall is also good to surround a garden because it protects it along with enhancing its beauty.
