5 Excellent Ways to Use Natural Stone Pavers in Your Backyard
Natural stone is a beautiful addition to any part of your house, but it is especially well-suited for your backyard. Pavers made from natural stone are cut directly from the rock that has naturally formed in the earth. The pavers have unique color variation in shades that perfectly complement the natural landscape. Depending on how they are used, they can enhance the landscape, making it look more put together yet still natural.
Natural stone comes in a variety of shapes, colors, and textures, so there are many options for using it in your backyard. Here are five ways you might want to consider using natural stone pavers in your yard:
The most natural use of stone pavers is to create a walkway in your backyard. You can create a walkway leading from your porch door to your rear gate, your gate to your garden, or even a porch door to a shed. If you want to create a beautiful and elaborate design, you can create several walkways leading to and from different areas of your yard and even “secret garden” spaces and sitting areas around the yard. You can create a unique look for your backyard that will make your property stand out. Your guests will be impressed, and you will wow potential buyers if you ever decide to sell the house.
You can grow food in a garden or beautiful flowers. You can edge these gardens in any way you like, including putting up a basic wire fence on metal posts or creating a raised bed with a wooden box. However, if you want to make these spaces really stand out, you can line them with natural stone pavers. You can create a basic path that makes it easier for you to weed or to check on the status of your plants, or you can create a beautiful, elaborate wrap-around that adds character and style to the space.
A fire pit is a nice addition to your back yard. You can sit around the fire pit while relaxing in the evening or sharing drinks with guests. Or you can let your kids roast marshmallows over the pit or make delicious s’mores. Again, your fire pit can be basic and functional like a garden, or it can be elaborate and stylish. By adding natural stone pavers around the fire pit, you can elevate its look and create a unique center piece for entertaining.
Columns and Posts
You may have multiple columns or posts around your patio, deck, or even your shed. You can dress these up and make them look much more stylish by adding natural stone to the base. The pavers can be stacked, or you can opt for natural stone veneers. You have a lot of options, depending on the look you want to create. You can choose stone that matches what’s on your home or that matches what’s used on your patio or other landscaping elements. The key is to tie everything in together for a cohesive look.
A beautiful stone wall can create a stately accent piece for your backyard. You can erect a wall behind a sitting area, or you can clad a wall of your home or your shed with stone. Again, you can either stack the pavers, turn them on their sides, or use other stone veneer to accent the wall. You can have a beautiful sitting area without having to invest the time and money it would take to erect a wall of stone.
Stone pavers and veneers can be used in a number of ways in your backyard to create a beautiful yet natural look for your home and your landscaping. You can use them as accents, or you can use them for functional features, such as paths and patios. Try out different combinations of colors, textures, and shapes with your design to get a unique look.
