The options are limitless when it comes to landscaping your home. With so many materials out there, homeowners are finding new and creative ways to add character to their home through landscaping construction. A material many homeowners turn to for many different features is natural stone. Coming in unique colours and forms, stone can be incorporated into your landscaping in many ways.
From the contractors at Evergreen Services in Calgary, here are some ideas to get your project rolling.
Does your yard have a slope? A retaining wall can be a good way to enhance your yard while embracing its natural slope. Retaining walls come in many different forms, and can be made with many different kinds of stone. No matter the stone you choose, the size, or colour, a retaining wall can improve function and aesthetics in your sloped yard.
Pathways or sidewalks around your home are a great place to showcase the natural stone. The stone can be cut in many different ways to add a cool design to it, or to fit an odd space your yard might have. Pathways can also have different designs within them, such as different shapes to create a focal point in the yard. Another idea is to outline the path with a simpler stone, then use a more unique stone in the center.
A patio is a great bonus space for you to spend time with family, or kick back and relax in your backyard. Using stone as the base instead of something like concrete, or incorporating the two together can add character to your yard, and give your home a one-of-a-kind feature. Add a fireplace or fire pit to your patio, with complimentary stone.
If you have flowerbeds or a garden in your backyard, natural stone can highlight the existing features. Use different stones to outline the length of the garden. The colour of different natural stones can bring out the colour in your flowers or other plants. Natural stone can also be incorporated with things like fountains, birdbaths, and other water features to create a true oasis just for you.
