If you get the chance to sit down with a landscaper or hardscape designer, they can go on and on about the benefits of a natural stone patio. The truth is, a natural stone patio is really that great! When homeowners contemplate installing a new patio, natural stone can beat out wood or even concrete as the material of choice. If you’re planning on installing a gorgeous natural stone patio on your property, be sure to call Honeysuckle Nursery & Design with your ideas! Let’s look more closely at three perks of building a natural stone patio to extend your outdoor living space.
This may be a subjective reason, but no discussion about the benefits of natural stone is complete without acknowledging its beauty and sophistication. Natural stone is favored by many for all types of indoor and outdoor building projects, from countertops to retaining walls. There are a wide variety of stones that can be used for patio installations, including limestone, slate, and bluestone, to name a few. For those who want to enhance the outdoor setting with a natural aesthetic, natural stone is a perfect choice.
Weatherproof and Durable
You’d be surprised to learn how well natural stone stands up to the elements. During the hot summer months, heat from the sun can make a patio incredibly uncomfortable to the touch. However, by building your patio with natural stone, they don’t retain heat to such an extent. Rain can make many outdoor surfaces slippery, but natural stone is also quite slip-resistant thanks to the textures in the stone. The impressive ability to be weatherproof is also accompanied by its durability. In fact, it’s very difficult for anything to crack your natural stone patio, meaning fewer repairs or replacements.
Low Maintenance, High Value
Because of their awesome durability, natural stone patios are built to last and look as great as the day they are installed. A professional patio contractor can make this a quick project with lasting results. Maintenance is super easy, too. You can sweep or hose away any grime or dirt. This low maintenance addition can actually increase your home’s value by a significant amount. It’s both appealing and practical, so many future homebuyers are often willing to spend more to get this beautiful stone feature.
