Stone & Flagstone Flowerbeds & Paths
Stone is simply the most durable material option for creating your garden beds. Some key benefits of choosing stone or flagstone for your flowerbeds and paths are as follows:
- • Your stone or flagstone flowerbeds can withstand humid summers, harsh winter storms, and even floods
- • Your stone garden beds will not rot or get damaged by pests
- • There is no general wear and tear
- • Stone retains its natural elegance with minimal maintenance
Besides, stone is an environment-friendly material and can match your home’s style.
A stone retaining wall offers many advantages for your landscape. This includes:
- Preventing Erosion: This is the most common reason for installing retaining walls. If heavy rain, irrigation, or winds have the potential to change your property’s geography, we can install custom stone retaining walls to protect your landscape.
- Managing Runoff: Durable and well-designed retaining walls can direct the flow of water on your property, especially from harsh storms. The wall can prevent major damage if floodwaters tend to encroach on your building every time it rains.
Additional benefits include preventing sinkholes, providing structural support, and creating land that is usable for entertainment and planting purposes.
Stamped Concrete Patios & Walkways
Stamped concrete patios and walkways are made similarly as normal poured concrete patios and walkways. The concrete is, however, tinted before being poured. This further means that the concrete is the same color throughout. The design is stamped after the concrete is poured, resembling stones, bricks, tiles, or any other design of your preference.
The key benefits of stamped concrete walkways and patios are as follows:
- • There are lots of customization options in terms of colors and patterns.
- • Stamped concrete patios and walkways can last for many years and there is no risk of your patio sinking
- • The installation process is relatively faster
- • You will have a patio or walkways that require minimal maintenance
Flagstone Patios & Walkways
When it comes to creating a more complete landscape, you should consider a flagstone patio and walkways. Flagstone is a versatile stone capable of accenting all types of landscaping projects. You can also use it to create driveways, garden borders, and fireplaces. Some key advantages of having a flagstone patio are as follows:
- • Highly durable and less likely to warp or crack
- • Highly resistant to pests including termites
- • Cost-effective material, as it is readily available
- • Ease of working with and lots of customization options in terms of styles and colors
- • Flagstone is perfect for patios and walkways that are considered high-traffic surfaces
- • Excellent traction capabilities
