As globalized life gets more and more transitory, designers are using natural stone landscape pavers to lend a sense of permanence to indoor and outdoor spaces. Limestone, travertine, marble and lava stone are becoming the building and accent pavers of choice among homeowners and architects. Even if it weren’t all the rage, natural stone would do its job day in and day out. Good looks and practical function prove that investing in superior materials does pay off.
The wow effect is strong when lovely limestone or travertine paves a patio or pool deck. Limestone’s muted blues and grays look great outdoors, as flooring or countertops in an open-air kitchen. Travertine’s golden earth tones are everywhere these days, including walkways, driveways and retaining walls that look as though they are part of the landscape.
Versatile Stone Landscape Pavers
Limestone, travertine, marble and lava stone can all be used throughout a home and landscape, to create a unifying theme. Some options are:
• Natural stone stair treads
• Landscape accents such as waterfalls
• Pool area pavers in travertine or limestone
• Patio floor tiles in marble
• Sinks, countertops and custom applications
Fashionable stone is also durable. Professionally set landscape pavers may last as long as 50 years, requiring little maintenance. With natural anti-slip qualities, they make a safe surface for patios, pools and baths. Builders and homeowners who want to learn more about using stone pavers can visit the Gothicstone Collection.
