Why Should You Have a Natural Stone Patio Installed?

Honeysuckle Nursery Natural Stone Patio

Natural stone patios are good for your feet, your home, and the environment.

Patios are an important congregating place for family and friends to enjoy fresh air, eat delicious grilled food, and socialize with each other. However, not all patios are created equal. A natural stone patio will foster a beautiful and majestic aesthetic in your outdoor space while providing benefits many other patio types don’t offer.

Low Maintenance

Natural stone is a dense and beautiful material that doesn’t require excess maintenance like a wood patio. There’s no hardware to deal with and no painting required. In addition, wood rots and is susceptible to mold and mildew. Natural stone doesn’t degrade, and any organic growth can be swept or hosed off with ease.


Natural stone is heavy and strong, so it can withstand anything thrown at it. From severe weather conditions to heavy daily use, a natural stone patio will outlast any other material and look good doing it. Thanks to this, your natural stone patio will last for years and it will still be in amazing condition if you decide it’s time to sell your home, so the next family will be able to enjoy it too.

Increased Home Value

If you do end up selling your home, a natural stone patio will actually raise your home value. As a luxury landscaping project, it is considered a favorable investment that will pay off in the long run. It will be much easier to show a home with a beautiful natural stone patio than a rotting wood deck and the home will be a lot more desirable, especially for families that enjoy spending time outside.

Good for Your Feet

There’s something special about stepping onto your patio with your bare feet. Unfortunately, concrete patios will burn your feet in the summer, and wood decks run the risk of giving you splinters. Natural stone patios don’t hold in heat like concrete, and they won’t give you splinters like wood. You can comfortably step onto a natural stone patio without shoes on during most seasons.

Environmentally Friendly

Wood products cause deforestation, and concrete is made through processing which has a significant environmental impact. Natural stone, on the other hand, is naturally occurring and environmentally friendly. Since it has no need for processing and nature reproduces it without interference, it’s the superior choice if you want to be kind to the environment.
