Natural stone is one of the best materials to accent your outdoor space. You might not have considered a number of masonry structures to add to your front or backyard, but a simple stone walkway could be the perfect fit. Here are some reasons why a stone walkway is a great addition to any yard.
Variety in Style
The first and most attractive quality of stone walkways is that you can choose from an endless combination of beautiful styles. Stone comes in nearly any color, shape, and size you can think of. You can create a classic look with a simple grid arrangement, or make your own combination of colors into a freeform pattern. Whatever you decide, your stone walkway will be a beautiful accent to your yard, and its colors won’t fade, so it will stay looking great over the years.
It might sound like stone would be an expensive material, but it’s just the opposite. Naturally-sourced stone usually doesn’t have to undergo extensive amounts of processing, which is part of where the cost comes from. And because natural stone is durable and timeless, you will enjoy your stone walkway while adding value to your home.
Lastly, stone walkways are much easier to take care of compared to walkways made of other materials. When you have your stone walkway installed by a professional, then almost zero work will be required on your end to keep it looking nice. Stone does not crack, fade, or chip as easily as brick, which makes it great for holding up to heavy traffic. It’s up to you how often you would like to clean it, but otherwise, you shouldn’t have any major issues.
