3 Reasons to Choose Natural Stone Pavers

Pavers are a great way to turn your backyard into a functional and usable space. Whether your yard is completely lawn and your furniture keeps sinking into the dirt, or you’ve grown tired of your brick patio, pavers can bring new life to your property. Yet concrete can be bland, with manufacturers only making a small variety – it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to create a unique space. That’s why natural stone pavers are the perfect choice for your home.
     

  1. Unique 
    As you can tell, choosing stone will ensure that your design, no matter how simple, will be completely exclusive. Because they are created by nature, there is no way to replicate the unique patterns and textures that you’ll find within each piece, even if we wanted to. With concrete and brick, you can decide between a few shades and shapes, yet with stone you’ve got countless options. Bluestone looks beautiful in a contemporary house, while Italian Porphyry and Slate compliment period homes. There are so many different options to choose from, so there is sure to be a style to suit your architecture and taste.
     
  2. Durable
    You may worry that won’t be as durable as the man-made alternative, yet this couldn’t be further from the truth. Not only does natural paving look nicer, it’s actually far more durable than its counterpart. And because they are more durable than even concrete, you don’t have to plan for extra thick paving – which can make installation a hassle. If you’re using pavers for your pool area, there are great options here as well. Granite is one of the hardest stones on the market, so it’s popular with heavy traffic areas, while Yarrabee’s sandstone is known for its ability to tolerate exposure to salt, making both of these perfect for the pool.
     
  3. Sustainable
    These days almost everything is man-made, which has become an incredible burden on the environment. Because these are a natural product, there are no chemicals being poured into their production. If you eventually decide that you want to remodel your backyard, then your stones can be used as reclaimed pavers or crushed and used for aggregates.
