Why are Natural Stone Pavers Preferable to Brick?

Are you planning a new landscape design for your garden and brainstorming ways to make pathways, create areas for patios or ways to surround a new pool? In Australia we know how to appreciate our backyard, whether it is a small courtyard space, extravagantly lush garden or a fenced off area in the middle of a large property. Putting in new landscape designs can therefore be an exciting time and there's no point in skimping on important parts of the design, such as the choice of pavers.

While brick pavers are cheap and do indeed come in a variety of warm colours, they can't beat the allure of natural stone pavers, including sandstone, travertine, bluestone, granite and limestone. Natural stone pavers can be used for a wide variety of applications, as the different properties of each stone make them especially suited to different purposes, and are available in a variety of shapes, colours, sizes and finishes, all of which complement a natural environment perfectly.

For use around the house, natural stone pavers can be used to complement any architectural style, whether you choose travertine, limestone or bluestone flags for an older house or cutting edge styles in granite, sandstone or slate.

Choosing natural stone pavers for your landscaping project can lead you in exciting new directions due to the many beautiful forms natural stone pavers are available in. Smooth-textured and handsomely coloured black limestone pavers, for example, can guide the aesthetic of a whole garden design project as they provide a stunning base for both exotic and indigenous plants.

If you are looking for a more luxurious and harmonious choice in pavers, natural stone is definitely the way to go.
