When you are planning a patio, you have a lot of popular choices for materials. At E.A. Quinn Landscape Contracting, we specialize in the use of natural stone in our outdoor spaces.
Here is why we select natural stone for our patio project:
Affordability – While natural stone (which can include bluestone, flagstone, fieldstone, granite or cobblestone) may require more of an investment initially when compared with paver patios, the durability that natural stone offers means it will last longer. Think about cobblestone streets in Boston. Those stones are from colonial days! Natural stone can survive New England winters and summer heat.
Care & maintenance – When installed and sealed properly, requires very little maintenance.
Visual appeal – Nothing beats natural stone when it comes to beauty. The finished product color choices blend so well with outdoor environments. Also, natural stone is available in a wide variety of sizes, from rough-hewn to geometric.
Safety – If you have a pool, it can be a great choice because the stone surface is naturally slip-resistant.
Timelessness – It will never go out of style. While paver shapes and sizes change with the seasons, natural stone was popular with the Ancient Greeks (think marble columns) and is popular with 21st Century Americans.
Match outdoor living features – It’s easier to match and looks better when building outdoor kitchens and fire pits.
