When it comes to adding hardscaping to your home, nothing has the same beauty, durability, and visual interest as natural stone. While it can be a little more costly up front, the long-term cost to value ratio cannot be overlooked. Natural stone also offers a variety of other benefits that homeowners will love.
One of the core advantages of natural stone is that it allows for a martial that is meant to last. Even more erosion-prone stones, like sandstone, will take decades to show signs of wear and tear. Meanwhile, other materials, like concrete, may crack and warp after just years if the wrong circumstances exist.
Improves Curb Appeal
There are few things that more dramatically improve a landscape like natural stone. Not only is it beautiful, but it’s a classic style that will never go out of fashion. Natural stone has a tendency to look very tidy, making it perfect for even simple facelifts.
Even if you are unsure of what type of design aesthetic you are after, the natural stone gives you the option to add variety. Because of its neutral, tidy appearance, natural stone can be used in conjunction with a wide array of features. Additionally, it makes the perfect starting point for future landscaping as your interests and budget evolve.
Thanks to the natural existence of stone, it is very environmentally friendly to use. It’s not a material that needs to be manufactured, will require minimal to no treatments, and may merely need to be cut or broken to the right size. Compared to many of the alternatives, stone is a great way to conserve resources and reduce your impact on the environment.
Natural stone can be expensive up-front, but depending on what type of stone you choose, your budget might be more flexible than you might first think. Not to mention, unlike other materials that will need maintenance costs, repairs, and upkeep, when you use natural stone your only costs will be at the time of installation. This feature makes stone more cost-effective over time.
